Alia Bhatt Shows Us Why a Banarasi Bandhej Saree is Perfect for Daytime Festivities

Alia Bhatt is a name that conjures up images of her iconic appearances, blockbuster films, and unmissable charming dimples. Despite beginning her film journey in 1999 with her father, Mahesh Bhatt's "Sangharsh," this resplendent actress found her entrance into the realm of Bollywood under the direction of none other than the luminary, Karan Johar. We have witnessed an extraordinary transformation in her vogue and sartorial sensibilities, from her debut in "Student Of The Year" (2012) to her remarkable portrayal of ‘Gangu’ in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum opus, "Gangubai Kathiyawadi," in 2022. She managed to pull off everything, from her entrance bedecked in graceful dresses and modishly casual attire to her appearances in magnificent designer sarees and lehengas.

Alia has adorned herself with glamorous drapes in her recent Instagram posts and public appearances, exuding an adeptness for fashion. From her role as Gangu in "Gangubai Kathiyawadi" to Rani in "Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani," and even as a bridesmaid in her best friend's wedding, the saree has been her preferred attire to captivate hearts with her gracious allure. 

In a recent Instagram post, Alia was spotted wearing a gorgeous Banarasi Bandhej saree. Featuring an ombre interplay of pink and green hues, the saree is lavishly decorated with Bandhej motifs meticulously woven in zari. Her nude makeup look along with the elegant maang tikka added to her unrivalled aesthetic appeal. 

But what struck us most about this look is how it is a shining example of smart millennial dressing for a day wedding. With its lush and lightweight georgette, festive hues and gilded motifs, the saree is a winning pick for balmy festive days when you just want to skip the voluminous lehengas and heavy suits. Paired with minimal jewellery, a neat blouse and a chic hairdo, this one is a minimal dresser’s dream!
