Vidya’s six yards features a unique outlet at the pallu serving as a sleeve, decorated with a statement gold patti border. This design allowed the actor to use her hands without pinning her pallu to the shoulder. She wore the drape in traditional style, with the other end of the pallu draped on her other hand.
Vidya chose a dark blue velvet blouse with brocade embroidery and a wide U neckline to style her unique saree. She chose an ornate gold necklace with precious stones and a dainty nose pin for accessorising the look.
Lastly, centre-parted sleek braided top bun, shimmery eye shadow, sleek black eyeliner, heavy mascara on the lashes, matte berry-toned lip shade, dewy base, sharp contouring, and blushed cheeks completed the glam picks.
If you’re a fashion risk taker, Vidya Balan’s unique silk saree with a sleeve is a great pick for you. From attending cocktail celebrations to a family wedding, you can wear this ethnic ensemble for just about any occasion.
