Celebrity inspiration: Neon sari

24 July 2013

Need more proof that neon is a big trend right now? Look no further than Deepika Padukone in her acid green Arpita Mehta sari, which the star wore during the promotions for Chennai Express

 

“Neon is huge right now," says Vogue fashion director Anaita Shroff Adajania, who styled the actress for the film's promotional tour. "It's been creeping into ethnic wear for a while, often in the form of a single streak of colour on a neutral lehenga or sari. Though, if you’ve ever visited the local markets in Mumbai, you’ll realize that Maharashtrian women have been wearing bold neon saris for a while now.” Padukone’s look, she adds, was meant to be a fresh spin on day wear. Trend-setter Sonam Kapoor was the first to get her hands on Masaba Gupta’s first collection for sari label Satya Paul. Actresses Kajal and Priyanka Chopra both took the plunge in Manish Malhotra.

 

What's the quickest way to be on trend this festive season? Wear a neon sari.
