Extravagant Banarasi lehengas are already a wedding favourites for Indian women. The luxurious fabric textures, fine intricate embroidery and embossed motifs add an exquisite touch to their big day. Apart from weddings the style has been reinvented and featured on other occasions as well. Most recently we were reminded of its timeless nature when Alia Bhatt stepped out in the gorgeous lehenga from Raw Mango for her bestie's wedding.
The sunshine yellow lehenga paired with a teal blouse and embroidered dupatta works like a charm. We love the youthful aura radiating from this look, paired with minimum accessories and natural hair, we can’t help but wish we were in this lehenga right now!
This is not the first time that the actress has donned this style. She was previously seen in a similar ensemble for the same brand at Amitabh Bachchan's Diwali event. Need we say more about the timelessness of the Banarasi lehenga?
The Banarasi lehenga has been featured extensively with by top Indian designers. It is refreshing to see what kind of personal touches they give to this traditional piece of ethnic wear. We feel fortunate to get this offbeat version of the Banarasi lehenga paired with a bandeau blouse and an ethnic jacket by Jayanti Reddy.
Bageecha Banaras has stayed true to the origin by featuring classic Shikargah and floral prints. The designs are modest and appeal sombre, a styling note you can take while shopping for your next lehenga.
The Banarasi lehenga has also inspired alternate artistic renditions by designers. been used as Ekaya featured Turkish-influenced handwoven Banarasi lehengas combined with the contemporary styling of the blouse and cholis. Frankly, we can see ourselves wearing something like this for a fancy evening soiree!
