Hollywood stars Uma Thurman and Debra Messing were recently seen dressed up in Indian outfits in New York while filming their new television series, Smash. Thurman was wearing a pink salwar kameez and completed the look with a bindi, necklace, bangles and a maang tikka in gold.
The Indian designers are seeing this as yet another token of acceptance by the West for Indian wear. Experts say that while the international fascination with Indian wear has been talked about for a while, this shows that Hollywood celebs are now game for incorporating Indian wear in some of their mainstream appearances also.
Fashion Designer Sidhartha Tytler says, “The two actors look stunning in their Indian outfits. While Debra looks much better than Uma, it’s great to see finally India getting the acknowledgement. The credit goes to Indian fashion weeks and designers.”
