We all love Bollywood, and usually look to the silver screen for style inspirations. We decided to look back at some of the recent (and some not so recent) styles from the silver screen that caught our eye.
Our first favourite Bollywood saree has to be from Katrina Kaif in Teri Ore, she looked desirable as ever as she showcased this black and red net saree, and managed to look amazing in each frame she featured in.
As far as Bollywood sarees go, this one definitely stands out to us as being a simple but gorgeous classic. The free fall of the saree highlighted her figure which resulted in an extremely element look. Katrina’s tall frame gave the saree a classy image, and was a complete hit with everyone who viewed it.
Next on our favourite Bollywood sarees list has to be Aishwarya in Devdas.
Aishwarya played the iconic character Paro in the film. The Saree that stood out to us the most was featured in the particularly sad scene where she realises that her love interest is about to die outside her home, which is still remembered as the most tragic scene in the history of Indian Cinema! Aishwarya wore a Bengali white and red saree, which added up to 8 metres long, instead if the normal 6 metres, and took almost three hours to drape! A definite reason to be a favourite of ours.
Next is Kareena’s red hot embellished saree worn in Chammak Challo, designed by Manish Malhotra.
Kareena drapped the beautiful red saree in a certain way that highlighted her curves perfectly for the scene. The bright red colour of the saree emphasised Kareena’s fair tone even further. The saree gained so much popularity the Kareena even decided to auction the saree for a charity event!
Last but certainty not least on our favourite Bollywood sarees list, has to be Madhuri in Didi Tera Devar Deewana (from Hum Aapke Hai Kaun).
She wore a heavily embellished and crystallised royal purple saree, which was perfectly paired with a stunning backless blouse. Madhuri looked amazing in this wedding ensemble and her look served as an inspiration for many women getting married, and quickly became every women’s dream saree. The saree emphasised her sensuality and femininity in an elegant way, a sure favourite of ours!
