Elegance Chronicles of Kanjeevaram Sarees
Gracefully donning Kanjeevaram sarees, Rekha’s love affair with it, is universally known. Finely draping this Indian woven silk over her shoulders everywhere she makes her appearance, has become a signature and a synonym with her name, inspiring generations with not just its piece of fabric but honouring our cultural pride by embracing the ethnic elegance.
Whether it’s a promotional event, her appearance on a television reality show, a glamorous red carpet or an award function, whichever place it is, the Silsila actress has always come up with sarees, making a strong statement of nailing six yards of drape anywhere you go.
Queen Jewellery Fits
Not just sarees, but even the actress’ jewellery are in a league of their own. Not simple but watching her effortlessly opting for heavy pieces of jewellery is outstanding to look out for. Delightfully enchanting the traditionally elaborated necklaces, a bundle of chunky bangles, intricate jhumkas, and not just that she also beautifully opts for a maang tikka which no one can do better than her.
Everything at once! And she looks like a goddess.
Experimentation with Silhouettes
Rekha’s regular saree drape wins the game but she also picks out in a fusion way too, which also makes her a modern diva. With a shiny full-sleeved blouse or a kurta paired with fit bottoms and draping this South Indian woven silk over it, aha, what an ethical fashionable fusion! A perfect inspiration for a contemporary style too.
