Here are a few pics of our B-Town divas who've opted for dramatic drapes to make a style statement on the red carpet recently. How do they fare? Tell us what you think of each sari by taking the poll at the bottom of each page!
We start off with Deepika Padukone, who was spotted in this lovely sheer sari that sported a white lace border and pale gold embroidery, not too long ago. In addition to her high-necked choli, she added a quaint touch with matching flat footwear instead of heels. Do you like her look?
Next we come to Mandira Bedi, whose bikini-style cholis prove just how sexy a sari can be. This one is no exception, the metallic blouse complementing lush hues of citrus orange and pink.
Neha Dhupia is as fashion-forward as they come and when she dons a drape, you can be sure it'll stand out from the rest. Get a load of this funky digital print, complete with neon bordering.
Gangs of Wasseypur actress Richa Chadda was recently spotted in this becoming white number, the green-gold border and fuschia choli providing a welcome pop of colour.
Taking the same route in a black drape featuring an electric pink and gold border we have Bipasha Basu. Her pulled-back hair and bindi add a traditional touch to the outfit, though.
Doesn't Sridevi look radiant in her resham embroidered sari? The high-necked, ornate choli is also perfectly elegant.
Kai Po Che star Amrita Puri was spotted in this creamy floral outfit with spotted contrast choli on the red carpet. Mix and match pays off -- sometimes.
Konkona Sen Sharma usually uses ethnicwear to play up her Indian appeal and this black and red ensemble is no exception. Simple and striking...and the beaded necklace finishes things off well.
Kajol has been looking like a million dollars lately, and this dotted gold sari set off with a minaudiere clutch is another feather in her cap.
She'll never give up on her Kanjeevarams, but we'll never tire of looking at the preternaturally preserved Rekha in her many silky stunners. Talk about timeless beauty!
Vidya Balan seems to want to follow in Rekha's footsteps with nothing but saris, but at her age and with her curves, we do wish we'd see her in other clothes occasionally! Of course, she does look lovely in drapes like this one, which juxtaposes prints.
She's all smiles in her paisley patterned ethnicwear, but we do wish Shweta Tiwari had chosen something that stood out a little more -- even the gold blouse can't jazz up this humdrum sari, what say?
At the other end of the spectrum we have Neena Gupta, who should play it safe but doesn't! She jazzes up her simple cotton sari with a strapless choli and edgy neckpiece.
Mouli Ganguly makes for a pretty picture in her half-and-half choice, with its lovely dashes of print in yellow, hot pink and monochrome.
And finally we come to the inimitable Shobhaa De, who poses on the red carpet in a busy geometric print.
