Priyanka Chopra can slay absolutely anything, and when it comes to saris, this fashion enthusiast leaves no stone unturned to impress us with her impeccable style. And she did the same at the pre-Oscar party this year when the diva flaunted an electric black drape embellished with scalloped borders. The actress paired her look with a strapless blouse and statement earrings.

Katrina Kaif was looking absolutely breathtaking in this beautiful piece from Rahul Mishra. Peppered with floral embroidery, her pink-hued fabric is one of the best summer saris the actress has ever worn. She completed her traditional look with minimal accessories, including chandbali earrings and golden bangles.

The sari was made with recycled nylon and eco-friendly faux leather. She teamed up her attire with a backless blouse of a similar tone and opted for minimal makeup.

Time and again Deepika Padukone has proved her love for sequins. And her latest award show appearance at Dubai’s award show in a Sabyasachi label is an example. The actress looked stunning in a sparkling number embellished with silver and gold shines. To enhance her sari look, the Gehraiyaan star went for a choker necklace, a pair of little earrings and smokey eyes.

Shraddha Kapoor in saris is a rare sight. Not long ago, she adorned a mint green pre-draped fabric which is on-point for your summer sari collection. She picked her outfit from the shelves of Indya, which featured ruffled pallu and borders. The actress finished her desi look with heavy oxidised jewellery featuring maang tika, silver earrings, nose pin, neckpiece, bangles and a ring.

Janhvi Kapoor’s yellow sari look is the perfect summer ethnic number. She slipped into this Manish Malhotra vibrant drape. Her summer sari featured triple white borders and a sleeveless blouse with floral embroidery. But what caught our attention was her turquoise jewellery, a pair of earrings, a gemstone embellished bangle and a big ring.

We can’t get over Kriti Sanon’s custom-made Manish Malhotra summer sari. She flaunted the shimmery drape during the promotions of her film Bachchhan Paandey. Sanon wore this summer ensemble with a deep neckline, sleeveless blouse. The actress kept her makeup and accessories minimal to let her six-yard fabric get all the attention.

Karisma Kapoor

90s superstar Karisma Kapoor never disappoints everyone when it comes to summer saris. The actress has given us several memorable red carpet appearances in the ensemble. This time, she wore a Sabyasachi black sheer number with a sleeveless shimmery blouse. The diva paired up her look with a neat bun, statement earrings and minimal makeup.

Vidya Balan has retained her love for drapes over the years, and this one is our favourite among her summer saris collection. Her Studio Medium striped sari and blouse set made us fall in love with her look. To complete the look, the actress went for a pair of studs and minimal makeup.

Genelia D’souza’s yellow chiffon attire is the go-to summer sari if you are all game for brights. Her contemporary yet traditional look with cut sleeves blouse gave us major style goals. Ditching the usual accessory earrings, she went for a golden statement neckpiece to volumise her look with a tiny bindi.
