Try as you might, but it takes sort-of an indomitable will for a trend-savant person to eschew the allure of diaphanous organza sarees. The pearl-like sheen, coupled with the vintage vibe lends it a feel that is not far off from the proverbial Maharani Gayatri Devi signature look – regal and sophisticated. If you are constantly glued to the matrix of Sabyasachi’s Instagram account, then, you probably already know that the designer, via his beautiful designs and elaborate campaigns, has been championing the return of these gossamer-thin sarees for quite some time now. But, if you’ve needed any further inspiration to make them a part of your wardrobe, Nora Fatehi in this pristine white saree from Sabyasachi with big floral prints will surely give you some.
The actor wore the saree in question for an episode of a reality dance competition that she judges. Maneka Harisinghani, who happens to be Nora’s sartorial rainmaker, managed to keep her look feeling equal parts classy and simple by letting the outfit do the talking without articulating on the supporting accessories except the chunky, multi-strand pearl necklace and matching earrings.
The wavy hair reminds us of the darling hairstyle that was worn by the archetypal royalty back in the ‘60s, lending her look a vintage feel. However, if you want to modernize the organza saree look and make it look more up-to-date, we suggest you swap the pearls with dainty crystal-embellished chokers or skip an accroutrement in the neck altogether and choose a pair of chaandbalis that come with antique finishing for just the ever so little touch of boho. Tie your hair in a messy chignon and keep the makeup dewy with soft nude lips. If you are confident, lightly cinch your waist with a belt (preferably Sabyasachi, too).
Overall, Nora Fatehi makes a strong case for wearing organza sarees to weddings or to festive events to guarantee attention. If you're one of those who fears wearing white anything, here's a pink variant of the Sabyasachi saree as seen on Nora Fatehi that deserves your consideration; take a look!
