Sonia Gandhi

When you see an Italian lady dress ethnic in Indian handloom sarees, you know there is something intriguing about her sense of dressing. Always an epitome of grace and poise, Sonia Gandhi is the official brand ambassador for Indian handlooms. She has been quoted saying, on Indian fashion, “Fashion has always been part of Indian life and culture. Indians have a very highly developed aesthetic sense, a sense of style and elegance which can be seen in the vibrant colours of a rural woman's sarees, her lehenga, ohrni or the cut of her choli. Every state has its distinct tradition of weaving, dyeing, printing, embroidery and beadwork." And her preference to opt only for these makes her the best ambassador for our handloom industry.

Pant suits and pearls is pretty much how we can sum up Hillary Clintons’s standard style statement. And yet her best looks have been those where she has replaced her pant suit with a skirt suit, such as the emerald blue one that she wore for a rendezvous with Princess Diana, her golden gown when she won the Grammy Gold are some of her older looks we absolutely love.
