An interesting design for a blouse. Will go better with a lehnga, but might also work for a contemporary saree.

Here are some more interesting examples of saree blouse designs. The ones that I like have slight asymmetry built in the design.
Please note that the Saree is inherently asymmetric; a design that takes advantage of the asymmetry will indubitably look great!

Although, I don’t particularly like it, the design and the concept of using little premade body stickers, some times also called body bindi, is distinctive and interesting enough that I wanted to bring it to your attention.

And from the front:
This was a charity gala Mijwan fashion show, organized by Shabana Azmi. It is for a good cause, here is the website.
I love how the blouse sort of fades away in to the intricate border of the saree. The backless saree blouse goes really well with this lahenga-saree. Other than earrings, I have nothing to complain about – ok, I don’t like the braid either.

Something about black and something about black paired with gold – very royal and gives the sense of opulent.
I like this combo. Here are the details of the blouse, if you’d like to see it.

What happened to the blouse here?! Saree is nice, a little too much resham, but it is bright and broader border makes it look interesting.
But the blouse has so many things wrong- the neckline is inconsistent with the saree, the color is odd and the mixing of blue at the end makes it look hideous. balloon puff is not something that goes well with this saree and then as if all this was not enough, there is a silver trim at the border of the sleeves…
I could go on about gold jewelry and how neckless looks so dull..
You expected me to comment on the flower in the hair, didn’t you?! Nope, I have nothing to say about that.
