There are women who wear saris.

And there is: Neena Gupta In A Sari.

That's a Bharatiya phenomenon in its own uber-class.

Neena could write a guide on how to do justice to a sari -- when she dons one she invariably brings out the bewitchery factor of a sari by choosing well, draping it without even a micro fold out of place and, most importantly, carrying it with both elan and matchless elegance.

Badhaai Ho! Neena.

If you want to go the traditional route for your next social outing, Neena will give you enough reasons to gush over the eternal drape.

Collect a few fail-proof tips on achieving Neena Gupta grace in a sari:

This Chanderi beauty with silver polka-dots lets her take centre-stage without going anywhere near the realm of gaudy or over-the-top.
Gold bangles, silver danglers, kohl-clad eyes and pink lips take the look from sada to khaas.

Neena's mint green sari may be simple, almost austere, but the intriguing blouse is not and she brings in some contrast with a purple potli and matching bangles.

Phoolmati returns! Even the bouquet of bright, colourful flowers pales in front of the vibrance of Neena's sunshine yellow number.

Bangles provide that one-of-a-kind melodic sari sound effect so you can hear a sari coming. Bole Chudiyan!
In this frame several things work perfectly in tandem: Striped halter-neck choli. Round-rimmed glasses. Floral handbag. Red single tone sari. And, last but not least, the kanch ki chudiyan.

The sari is the hero in her closet and it's the single-hue ones that really shine on her. And the jhumkas.

IMAGE: There is a certain haughty manner in which a sari must be shown off. Like the wearer believes, with certainty, she is a rani, God's gift, a prima donna. Neena knows the drill.
She has an affinity for the basic cotton sari from her daughter's label. And always teams it with a dramatic blouse that she's wearing on repeat.
The intricate choker that adds a whimsical touch.
