    We have seen her shutting the red carpet down at Cannes in voluminous gowns, gracing Ralph Lauren’s front row,  and embracing her inner Frida Kahlo at her own wedding – Deepika Padukone never shies away from making daring style choices. But among all of this, what stands out is her love for the Indian saris. Recently spotted at Akash Ambani’s wedding in a pink Sabyasachi sari among a sea of heavily embroidered lehengas, corset choli blouses, and bling, Padukone cut a statuesque figure. 

    There are very few Bollywood’s fashion fixtures who embrace saris unapologetically and Deepika is one of them. Concept, pre-draped, and pre-stitched saris get as much attention from her as old-school traditional pieces. Here are a few looks which prove her love for the quintessential Indian drape.

    Deepika Padukone’s love affair with saris hit new heights when she chose this pink Sabyasachi drape and paired it with a choker and a long neckpiece at the recent Ambani wedding. Needless to say, one of the best looks of Deepika in the new year. 

    In Rahul Mishra 

    Simplicity is everything and this white Rahul Mishra sari with scalloped borders, seems made for Deepika. For ladies who tend to veer away from white, take cues. 

    In Raw Mango 

    There are days when it’s great to embrace striking hues. Deepika’s love for pink extends beyond the red carpet, and this rani pink ‘Sanuya’ Varanasi silk brocade sari on Deepika is proof. The gold choker and the ‘gajra’ bring the entire look together.

    Florals are an evergreen trend and florals on white base in this piece are a win-win. Who better than Deepika Padukone to school us?

    In Anamika Khanna 

    If there is one designer who has relentlessly redefined sari without diluting its essence, it is Anamika Khanna. Deepika chose this masterpiece by the designer to attend Times 100 Most Influential gala in New York City last year. An all-white look with an embroidered full sleeved blouse and a floor-sweeping palla, does her status of being a star complete justice

    In Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla 

    There is nothing less than grand when it comes to ace couturiers Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla. And when it comes to Deepika, it seems she is their eternal muse. Besides transforming her into a white bride in their signature chikankaari sari, the duo has dressed Padukone frequently. And this all-white look with a feathered cape stands out.

    This Raw Mango white and grey stripped saree with a gold border is a versatile, wear anywhere pick.
