If there’s a piece of clothing that works like magic on every woman, it is the eternally elegant sari. One of the oldest garments of India, the sari can be both beautiful and sexy. We bet you’ve been awestruck every time a girl has walked by in a sari, haven’t you? This year, we saw some stunning saris make their impact on the runway at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2015. Take a look at the ones that were our favourite.

Gaurang’s brides were the kind we’d want to be—bold yet traditional. Here’s one of his saris that had our attention. The rich colour paired with the full-sleeved blouse spells royal while the veil on the head and the makeup create drama. But if you ask us, it’s the elegance of the sari that truly does it for us.

Can you imagine a Bengali bride sans a red-and-white sari? Here it is—model Deepti Gujral looking every bit the perfect Bong bride in her traditional sari with a twist. Note how the puff sleeved blouse takes us back to the time of the Tagore women who were known to be impeccably dressed in their saris with puff blouses.
