When it comes to traditional attire, India is a treasure trove of options. And while each of them come with their unique aesthetics, the saree has a special place in most Indian women’s hearts.
Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli are living the dream. After a beautiful wedding in Tuscany, and a dreamy honeymoon in Finland, the couple is back in the country for their wedding reception parties. Anushka’s choice of a traditional bright red Sabyasachi Benarasi saree for her wedding reception in Delhi is the only thing the Internet is talking about.
However, we couldn’t shake off the feeling that we had seen something like Anushka’s saree only a while ago. A little bit of digging revealed that Deepika had worn a very similar saree for Hema Malini’s book launch. We must say both Anushka and Deepika look like a million bucks in their sarees. Given the fact that Anushka chose it for her special day, is enough to prove how much in love she is with it. Sabyasachi explained it in his post by saying like every Indian bride, Anushka, too, wanted to opt for red for one of the events and she chose it for her first reception. Also since it is a Benarasi weave, it also serves as an impetus to the dwindling industry of weavers. So while Anushka must have chosen the saree because she must have liked it, she is also helping a cause and that makes the saree all the more special. Well whatever it is I think she was a beautiful bride and looked drop dead gorgeous with her mesmerizing smile.
