Last updated on: May 03, 2022 14:29 IST

After her recent Coachella fashion outing, Natasha Poonawalla made quite the statement at the 2022 Met Gala in a gorgeous sari designed by Sabyasachi Mukherjee.

Sharing pictures on Instagram, Sabyasachi wrote: 'For me the sari is a truly unique and versatile garment that owns its identity even as it transcends boundaries and geographies.

'Back when I was a young fashion student, I often wondered when I would see the sari at big global fashion events like the Met Gala.'

For her appearance, Natasha chose a custom Schiaparelli hand-forged metal bustier and paired it with a custom Sabyasachi couture handcrafted sari.

The gold printed tulle sari was accompanied by a trail embroidered with silk floss thread and embellished with bevel beads, semi-precious stones, crystals, sequins and appliqued printed velvet.

Natasha's accessories were a curation of custom pieces from Sabyasachi Fine Jewellery and limited edition collectibles from the designer's Curiosity Art & Antiquity Project.

Christian Louboutin shoes and glasses by Anna Karin Karlsson provided the final touch.

Artist Dolly Jain draped Natasha's sari and Anaita Shroff Adajania styled her look.
