The Bollywood Drape

IMG_2565copy

This drape is mostly used to flaunt the saree in the most sensuous way— by holding the loose pallu on the left hand. We often see this draping style in Bollywood movies with sensuous chiffon and graceful georgette sarees. A plain lightweight translucent saree with a sassy backless blouse is a provocative style adorned by most of the Bollywood divas in the movies since ages and the style refuses to die even today. Right from Madhubala to Meena Kumari, from Sri Devi to Juhi Chawla and now a days from Katrina Kaif to Kareena Kapoor, everyone’s favorite is a saree drape that blows every viewer’s heart away. In these pictures, I am draping a blue chiffon saree with gold border with intricate sequined work holding the pallu with optimum delicacy. I have done Bollywood drape in 3 of my posts, one of them being done with a beautiful saree sent to me by Triveni. You can read about the mythological relevance of a saree there. But, this drape looked perfect on me with yet another red saree ordered from Triveni Ethnics only.
