Pinkvilla's Annual Fashion Round up : Top 14 Saree Moments of 2014
After covering the International events, its time to see what our celebs wore to desi events. And we didn't want to do the usual Best Dressed or Best Red Carpet looks for you. Instead we thought why not make a list of 14 of the Best Saree moments of 2014. Read on :)
1. The 'East Meets West' Saree
Lets starts strong with Sonam Kapoor, who is never short on having epic fashion moments. Giving me my favorite Cannes look of hers yet, she stopped traffic in this fusion Anamika Khanna saree. The draped hem, the sheer caplet with the little show of skin, the stunning choker by mom Sunita, the matching Jimmy Choos, the slick hair.... this is what fashion heaven is made of.
2. The 'Super Traditional' Saree
I love when our actresses go tradish. So this look by Vidya was an instant fav. I've always loved her in her sarees. And what better occasion to rock on than when you are meeting the President to receive your Padma Shri Award. I love the whole traditional weave saree with the gold jewellery, the big bun with the gajra and the sindoor.
3. The 'Minimalist' Saree
Shraddha Kapoor had a real fashion moment this year (atleast for me) when she showed up to a blingy Bollywood wedding reception wearing a Shivan and Narresh resortwear saree. She let the color block saree do the work while giving the accessories a royal ignore. Minimalism at its best!
4. The 'When Priyanka wore A Sabyasachi Saree' Saree
The year 2014 saw Priyanka Chopra don a Sabyasachi saree for the very first time. And did we love it and how! The black and gold saree with the gold jewellery, the bun and the little bindi looked divine on her. Can we have her wear more of Sabya please?
5. The 'When Kareena wore A Sabyasachi Saree' Saree
Kareena Kapoor also wore a Sabyasachi saree this year. She wore a gorgeous nude Sabya saree that had bold red embroidery on the pallu. The red pout, the matching clutch, the simple hair... perfect look for an event where you are meeting the Prime Minister. Would love to see her rock some more Sabya.
6. The 'Shredded' Saree
Sonam Kapoor is one actress you can count on to constantly give us great looks. Remember the shredded Rimzim Dadu saree that she wore earlier this year for a painting exhibition? Love Love! Some more love!
7. The 'When Supermodel Naomi Campbell wore a Saree' Saree
Supermodel Naomi Campbell also had a saree moment this year when she decided to drape herself in a black Manav Gangwani lace saree while she attended an event for bag designer Charlotte Olympia. I may not be the biggest fan of how she draped it, but she sure is rocking it.
8. The 'Half' Saree
I love how our designers are interpreting the sarees and giving them their own twist. So this half saree with the sheer panel by Nikhil Thampi was an instant love for me on the runway. And who better than the gorg Kalki Koechlin to do full justice to it. She looked fab!
9. The 'Best Sabyasachi saree of the year' Saree
Oh Deepika! Could you look any more gorgeous? The Sabyasachi couture saree that she wore to 'Happy New Year' music launch was probably my favorite Sabya look of the year. The delicate saree with the super embroidered blouse and the printed underskirt... she wore it with such elegance like only she could.
10. The 'Leopard' Saree
Anyone who can rock a leopard print saree with such elegance and grace deserves to be on this list. Enough said!
11. The 'Gold Armor Blouse' Saree
Kareena Kapoor had another major saree moment this year when she wore a Anand Kabra to an event. Fashion is war and Bebo sure is winning in this gold armor inspired embellished blouse. The blouse teamed with the simple asymmetrical hem draped saree sure made for an interesting look.
12. The 'Pattern on Pattern' saree
I love me a clash of prints/patterns. And Anushka Sharma served me up a super look in this Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla saree. Loved this chevron beaded saree with the patterned blouse and the dark lip. Not everyone can pull this off like she did.
13. The 'Caplet' Saree
Samantha Prabhu is another actress who is very consistent with her style. She had some super looks this year. But I loved this saree moment from her. The simple blue saree from Koecsh by Kresha Bajaj looked stunning on her. The beaded caplet was everything!
14. The 'Dhoti' Saree
Oh look! Its Sonam again! Like you can blame me. Her style is so on point. Giving us another major style moment was Ms. Kapoor in a dhoti draped hem Tarun Tahiliani saree that she superbly styled with a neckpiece and single strap heels.
So here are my 14 Best Saree moments of 2014. DO you think I missed out on someone who deserved to be on the list? Let us know by leaving a comment below.
