It seems the humble six yards is the new favourite of Bollywood beauties these days. Because of the kind of elegance and grace the traditional attire renders the one who is wearing it, the sari has never gone out of fashion. While actresses like Vidya Balan and Madhuri Dixit Nene are known for their love affairs with the six yards, Deepika Padukone and Alia Bhatt too, recently made appearances in beautiful saris.
Both the actresses were attending the grand pre-wedding celebrations of Isheta Ambani — Mukesh and Anil Ambani’s niece — at Antilia, the Ambani’s residence.
Styled by Shaleena Nathani, Deepika Padukone looked like the absolute goddess that she is, in a laser cut sari by Rohit Bal. The white sari which had a toned down golden border created a beautiful contrast. Flaunting her chiselled shoulders in a sexy halter neck blouse, the Padmavati actress set some serious benchmark with her marsala lips.
With side-parted hair tied up into the classic hairbun, she teamed her attire with a pair of earrings from Mahesh Notandas and rings from Johri by Amaze. We love that she is not shying away from experimenting with her sartorial choices and that she is carrying a bold thigh-high slit skirt paired with embellished bodice (read her much-hyped VMA attire), and the classic Indian sari with the same panache and confidence.
Meanwhile, the chirpy Alia Bhatt looked beautiful as she took the traditional route this time. Her Manish Malhotra silver-grey sequined sari is a thing of beauty and we love how she paired it with a striped cutout blouse. The 23-year-old actress too, wore her hair up, in a neat side-parted bun; with the quintessential bindi and smokey eye make-up. Needless to say, she looked drop-dead gorgeous! We wish she creates a balance in her choices, and opts for more appearances in beautiful six yards.
