This has to be one of the best maternity photo shoots that I have seen.
I just love the how glowing the motherhood makes a woman look and add a beautiful saree to that and mix it with tremendous joy and anticipation and you have a winning combination.
More after the break..

Here’s an interesting example of ‘Sarees in Hollywood’. The 2008 film ‘Rachel Getting Married’ is an intense family drama starring Anne Hathaway as Kym and Rosemarie DeWitt as Rachel. Kym temporarily leaves rehab in order to attend the wedding of her sister Rachel but her arrival causes tensions within the family and opens old wounds. As we can see, the wedding itself has an Indian theme but what I find interesting here is that while the costume department seem to have used genuine sarees, they’ve used improvised blouses. Perhaps the climate didn’t suit a traditional saree blouse, probably a situation faced by many saree wearers in more temperate areas. However, I think this picture does demonstrate that, if necessary, almost any top can look good as a saree blouse.

One of the issues raised by the 100 saree project, that I mentioned a few months ago, is the way in which this, one size fits all, garment often gets handed down from mother to daughter, becoming part of the families social history. Here’s a fairly high profile example. This is Priyanka Gandhi, grand daughter of former Indian prime minister, Indira Gandhi, arriving at a wedding reception in New Delhi recently. Many eagle eyed fashionistas felt the her saree looked vaguely familiar and they were right.
