Kangana Ranaut Takes Her Drape Obsession Forward With This Anita Dongre Saree
It is a commonly acknowledged fact that the traditional Indian drape is as ageless a piece as it is classy and elegant. And though the saree has forever been an all-season, all-occasion wear, the piece had never quite earned the chic status with fashionistas, celebrity or not, until a few years ago when designers started to deconstruct and reinvent the ethnic drape and celebrity fashionistas like Kangana Ranaut took it upon themselves to further popularise the saree. From romantic frilly ones to crisp checked ones to basic solid ones to that of elaborately embroidered ones, Kangana sure has saree for just about every mood. And the actress added yet another gem to her stunningly extensive saree style file last night as she attended a wedding donning a beautiful drape.
Here’s a quick decode of Ranaut’s gorg turnout…
What She Wore
Styled, as always, by Ami Patel and Sanjay Kumar Dauhaliya, Kangana was seen wearing a blue saree from Anita Dongre’s Spring/Summer 2018 collection, Songs of Summer. The sheer saree featured a heavily embroidered border and delicately embroidered floral motifs on the palla. This was teamed with a matching blue embroidered sleeveless blouse.
Shoes & Accessories
As is usually the case with Kangana’s ethnic looks, the actress ditched earrings and opted for a statement neckpiece instead. Her necklace was courtesy of Anmol Jewellers.
Hair & Makeup
Kangana stuck to her trusted hair stylist and makeup artist, Divya Naik and Loveleen Ramchandani, this time as well. While Divya pulled Kangana’s curly locks back in a loose bun, Loveleen finished off the actress’ look with nude, shimmery eyes and mild pink on the lips.
This isn’t the first time that Kangana has wowed us with her saree expertise. Something about the ethnic drape wrapped around her lean frame makes for an elegantly stylish frame. Of course, the poise and panache with which Kangana carries her sarees deserve due credit as do the beautiful creations that the diva is seen sporting. And this Anita Dongre saree sure is one of her more gorgeous pieces. The only thing that we would have done differently, had we been working this saree, would be to go bold either with the eyes or with the lips.
