Few moments in life are as breathtaking as the surreal vision of deepika in red saree at her recent nuptials.
The pallu of the pure zari saree bore a golden motif of the ‘Gandaberunda’, a mythological two-headed bird that denotes prosperity and wisdom – also a symbolic representation of her home state Karnataka.
At her glittering reception in Mumbai, she looked fantastic in an Abu Jani- Sandeep Khosla creation. The rich brocade pallu lent a regal touch to the saree.

It’s a rare to spot alia bhatt in saree as the millennial icon loves to turn it up with gorgeous western looks – but at the Ambani’s engagement party, Alia made eyes swoon with her tradition-meets-modern, millennial pink saree style.
She wore a customized brocade saree by Manish Malhotra, but gave it a fun twist with a cold-shoulder cut out blouse and edgy silver jhumkas.
Styling tip: Keep it simple with jewellery just like Alia, especially if your saree is a showstopper with pretty colours and beautiful detailing. A statement ring or a pair of earrings is all you need.
