if ur an indian in US, UK, Canada or Europe ....
Wear a sari and u will be courted like a queen
I think the sari is by far the sexiest desi outfit which is form-flattering for Indian women, who tend to be hip-heavy," Shobhaa adds.
Debutant actor Vidya Balan has been spotted sporting a sari for almost all her filmi appearances. "I don’t think wearing a sari conveys a stereotypical image.
If international stars like Liz Hurley can flaunt the sari with elan, why not us?" questions Balan, who feels there’s nothing more "feminine and sensuous" than the sari.
Think Sushmita Sen in Main Hoon Na. Says another sensual-in-a-sari style diva, Malaika Arora Khan: "I love wearing traditional fabrics like kanjeevarams in rich colours.
I feel a sari is a versatile garment which does full justice to a woman’s figure... you can hide extra flab or simply flaunt those curves!"
Bong bombshell Koena Mitra adds, "Saris are an intrinsic part of my culture. Teaming a sari with a backless halter or a tie-up choli makes the ultimate style statement in a crowd." The sari has come a long way, but is its presence in style circles here to stay?
"I think a sari lends a sense of individuality in an age when most people dress like clones," feels socialite Anju Taraporewala.
Actor Shilpa Shetty adds, "Unlike a Western outfit which needs to have a proper fit, you can just pick a sari off the rack and team it with the right accessories to look drop-dead-gorgeous."
And for actor Mahima Choudhury the sari attracts the maximum ‘male attention.’ "Most of my guy friends tell me I look great when I don a sari. I think a sari makes a woman feel sexy and desirable. And that’s the biggest draw."
