Shilpa Shetty Can Drape A Saree In More Ways Than You Can Imagine
Shilpa Shetty is known to be a yogi, fitness enthusiast, and is body goals for the entire nation. However, in the past few months, she has also proven to be a saree-draping queen, as she has been reinventing the good old saree with intuitive drapes and quirky blouses.
The classic 9 yards of beauty, is something we millennials often associate with a uniform to be worn for college farewells or your cousin’s wedding. But hey, Shilpa Shetty is here to save the day with her unconventional and unique take on the good old saree. From dhoti style saree, sexy saree gowns, to sarees with cargo pockets and more, Shilpa Shetty has proved to the world that a saree can be worn everywhere, from the beach to the cocktail parties, and even at a nightclub.
When Hauterfly caught up with Shilpa Shetty and questioned her about, what’s up with her contemporising the saree, she said- “I don’t know about contemporising it, but, I like to be a trendsetter. I like to do stuff that people haven’t done, so I do it with the idea of doing that. Because otherwise, you tend to get very repetitive.
She further added that- “Instead of following the current trends and trying to keep up, I try to do what is comfortable and what I enjoy wearing. And I love the saree as an attire, and look for ways of how differently can you drape the saree.”
“So I welcome designers to send me stuff that work in that direction, and people love it and I think a saree is one of those garments that will always remain timeless.” Well, we couldn’t agree more!
Hence, on the occasion of her birthday, we have listed some of her coolest saree looks. Keep scrolling for a fun dose of fusion.
