Sara Ali Khan on Diwali

Bandhanis are known for their lively hues, two of which were picked by Sara Ali Khan this Diwali. Keeping her festive styling minimalist yet class apart from everyone else, the Pataudi girl picked a mango chiffon saree speckled with bandhej patterns. She paired the elegant 6 yards with an embroidered pink blouse and created the perfect contrast there is.

Bollywood divas are battling it out in bandhani; take style notes, ladies.

The very Indian art of plucking the cloth with the fingernails, tying them into a pattern, dipping it in the most vibrant colors to turn a plain white cloth into an astonishing work of art, has its roots in Gujarat and Rajasthan, and dates back to the ancient times of the Indus valley civilization.

Bandhej, as it is also called, has found its canvas on cotton, georgette, chiffon, and all kinds of silk. Its feasibility on a plethora of fabric types has kept it in vogue through centuries. Now, anything that is in fashion finds a place in the most fashion conscious industry ever, Bollywood.

Our B’town beauties are showing some special love to the desi tie-n-die and have outdone each other with one extra-ordinarily breathtaking appearance after another in the recent times; more so, during the the festivities last month.
