Vidya Balan and Dia Mirza stand out for their elegant sense of style.

Having favoured traditional silhouettes to Western ones, the actors have often taken fashion risks which have paid off beautifully.

Take the case of this handsfree sari worn by Vidya, above. A handwoven silk sari, it features a shibori sleeve designed to keep the hands free.

Handcrafted by Studio Medium, it has been created by locally trained craftswomen and naturally dyed.

Vidya styled the sari with a matching blouse and a red bindi.

During a preview of Thappad, Dia wore the same sari but in a different colour.

She added a contrasting element to the green silhouette with metallic jewellery.
