I would not have expected this combination to work, but somehow it is not as bad as one might have imagined.

Kashmira Shah and how not to wear a sexy sari

There is a thin line between sexy and lewd, and Kashmira Shah has drawn that line – with her pallu that is (see pic below)! With her chest totally exposed above the pallu and her hips jutting out from below, Kashmira has shown that there is a right way to do a sexy sari, and a wrong way. We regret to say that her look is much too in your face to look truly sensual.

This has to be one of the most unusual and most revealing sexiest saree drape that exist!

As I have mentioned several times, the saree is 5,000+ years old but the blouse is a very recent phenomena.

Here is a picture of the sexy saree drape covering the upper body.

One of these days I will compile some of the most unusual and sensuous and sexy saree drapes.

Saree is the only garment that takes the form of the person wearing it; ok tube-top does that too, but let’s not go there.

Protima Bedi in a saree

Protima Bedi in a saree    bollywood saree

 

In 1953, her family moved to Goa, and later to Bombay, where she received much of education, including college education, at St. Xavier’s College, Bombay. She had become a prominent model by late 1960s. In 1974, she came into news for streaking during the daytime near Juhu Beach in Bombay. It was during her wild modelling days that she met Kabir Bedi. Within a few months of their meeting, she walked out of her parents’ house to live with him. They got married in 1969 and had two children – Pooja, who took acting for a brief while and a son, Siddharth.

Dance

In August 1975, at the age of 26, an Odissi dance recital completely changed her life when she ran into the Bhulabhai Memorial Institute by chance, and saw two young dancers giving an Odissi performance. It filled her with a kind of passion she’d never known before, in spite of its extremely complex rhythms, patterns and sophisticated hand-and-eye gestures. She became a student of Guru Kelucharan Mohapatra from whom she learnt the art of dancing for 12 to 14 hours a day and faced a lot of hardship as a beginner. She transformed herself from being the tight trouser, halter neck, off-shoulder girl with gold streaked hair to Protima Gauri, later as Gauri Amma or Gauri Maa, as she was affectionately known amongst her students.

Rani Mukherjee in a transparent brown saree

This is a classic saree; midsized zari border and transparent chiffon. A must have kind of saree for your wardrobe.

Pick the color that you like – actually I take that back – pick the color that makes you look the best and get a saree with a midsized silver border. Have three blouses made; the first one is plain, same color as the saree, the second a silver blouse and third a halter top with brown and silver.

Then you can pick which one to wear depending on the occasion. Match with with dangling earrings and you are ready to conquer the world.

I also want to come back to this issue of the difference between the colors that you like and the colors that look good on you. A beautiful friend of mine had an unnatural liking for brown. Take her to a saree shop, show her 1000 sarees and she will pick the brown one. Except that the brown didn’t look too good on her. She looked so much better in lighter colors. A video clip of her in a lighter color saree is what convinced her that that there is comfort color, that is brown for her and another color that brings out the best in her.
