The other day I was reading the newspaper and amongst the usual happenings of the world and gossip about the celebs, what caught my attention was a picture of Nita Ambani flaunting a whopping Rupees 40 lakhs sari at a social function! The sari is designed by none other than the director of Chennai Silks, Sivalingam.

What makes this sari unique is the novel concept and unparalleled work that required the labor of 36 craftsmen to hand-weave the sari reproducing eleven paintings of the great historic painter, Raja Ravi Varma. It took them around 12 months to complete the sari. Known as the ‘Vivaha Patu’ sari, it weighs nearly 8 kgs with embroidery using the real gold zari and navratna stones like diamond, emerald, ruby, yellow sapphire, sapphire, topaz, pearl, cat’s eye and coral.

And if you take a closer look at these rich and famous socialites, you will find that not only are these rich women tastefully dressed but on many occasions they are better dressed than most Bollywood actresses. Where many Bollywood actresses look chic and trendy in their latest designer western labels, most of our rich socialites actually steal the show with their elegance in opulent traditional drapes.
