This just says “Bollywood” to me, in a gloriously Technicolor way! And with yesterday being Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s birthday – and today being Shah Rukh Khan’s – what better way to start the day than by posting a traditional saree that would look fabulous on the big screen, especially on the above-mentioned actress? Not so good on SRK, however, though he is looking hot in his latest film!
There are probably a zillion saree ads out there today, and increasing by the day too. I have to admit, unless it screams ‘creative’, it gets skipped over with a single click without any mercy and you cannot blame me for my Internet ADD syndrome, or my short attention span and whatever else you wanna call it.
This has such a wonderful 1940s sense of style, like a noir heroine in a classic film! And it is better in black-and-white than colour. I found the photograph just last week on the Exclusively. In fashion site, with Payal Singhal sarees being featured that day. Truly, all it lacks are the more extreme shoulder pads favoured in the ’40s, with every other element being perfect to do a little time travelling. Love it, love it, love it!
