With a disarming charm, Madhuri’s style is now being talked about and copied by girls around the country. Madhuri has managed to add charisma and panache into traditional Indian wear, especially sarees like never before. Her every look is carefully styled and put together effortlessly. So, take a look at few of the sarees that Madhuri has worn, as we decode them for you.
The offbeat colours and distinguishing mirror works on the above saree make it stand out. Here is a saree that is mostly white in colour. Warm peach and apple green colours add a lot of zing to it. The fabric is tissue silk which is slightly sheer. The border is accentuated with coral lace and mirror work. Slight effects of green on the pallu, paired with matching quilted green sleeveless blouse; makes the saree quite a refreshing option that can be worn during the day or evening. White and orange tassels on the pallu are an inexpensive way of making the saree a little heavier and appropriate for a bigger occasion.
Madhuri rocked this stunning bright pink georgette saree once. It has casually spread mirror work on the full saree. She has teamed it up with a rather fun and floral printed sleeveless blouse. It has gold lace and a line of blue mirror work on the border. The idea here is to choose a simple mirror work saree and combining it with an interesting blouse.
Prints are youthful, fun, and charming and come handy, especially when you do not wish to carry the weight of embroideries and heavy decorations. Madhuri Dixit sported a multi-coloured saree designed by Masaba Gupta, a designer who is famous for her unique use of prints and patterns. The fabric looks like crepe silk if you observe the pleating carefully. This saree has a burst of colours. It has light grey and candy pink mixed on the lower part. Neon green and black accentuating the pallu makes the look so vibrant. A sleeveless lace blouse is added to bring back the sensuality to an otherwise fun and flirty saree. The smokey eyes just make Madhuri look ‘perfect’!
This designer Sabyasachi saree has polka-dotted print on the ivory base. It is a georgette saree. There is an interesting pop of pink in the pleats, slight black net detailing, and mint coloured border. She is wearing a plain raw silk blouse.
Make your look even more retro by going in for polka dots in even brighter colours like turmeric yellow and tomato red. Here is Madhuri in a saree by designer Nikasha. Notice the gold border and beautiful tassels finishing out the look perfectly. This sort of look can work amazingly well for cocktail dinners or even pre-wedding functions of your friends and family.
Older women tend to move away from sheer fabrics, but Madhuri bends the rule. She looks classy and chic even when she chooses a net saree. The sheer midnight blue saree is a visual delight. Madhuri teams it up with a golden and pink sleeveless blouse. It matches the subtle gold thread work on the saree.
A more serious look comes about in a gold sheer saree, designed by Tarun Tahiliani, with a maroon velvet blouse. The blouse and the saree are adorned with Swarovski that are lightweight and glittery at the same time. After seeing a string of sleeveless blouses, a velvet blouse with fluffed sleeves is a welcomed change. The choice of colours and exquisite work makes the saree quite a hit for all brides-to-be to have in their trousseau.
Madhuri Dixit’s pink and black lehenga saree is surely a million-dollar-visual-delight. Even though pink and black are two opposite colours of the spectrum, yet the saree has been designed as such that it looks beautiful on Madhuri. And undeniably, the way she carried it added another dimension to her beauty. The golden embroidered pallu of her saree went well with the golden earrings.
In one of her recent promotions for her upcoming film, Bucket List, Madhuri wore a dark blue saree which looked super gorgeous on her. Her fair skin tone and dark blue saree well contrasted and complemented with each other. The simple pallu and one stretch of floral embroidery on her saree made it look super stunning.
