Why Alia Bhatt’s sari worth the hype:

 

 

Let’s talk about Alia Bhatt’s sari designed by Indian couture designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee and its 23 foot long train.

The Met gala is not really about who looked the best and while Alia bhatt sari might actually be our favorite look from the whole night is because her dress is more about a celebration of artistic craftsmanship and celebrating both the theme and exhibit of the Met gala.

After all, the Met’s costume institute is actually about preserving the craftsmanship of the making of clothing and its cultural history.Its not just about the Met gala. So with all that in mind, Alia bhatt sari hits on all of these points.

Did you know that the first mention historically of a sari is in Rig Veda.Its a Hindu book of hymns that dates back to 3,000BC.The Sari represents about 5,000 years of human culture 

 

Alia Bhatt discussed on the red carpet, “How important it was for her to wear a Sari,not just because of her own personal heritage but because of the fact that it represents so much cultural history.”

It is a perfect mix of traditional sensibilities and avant garde aesthetics.

The beautiful ensemble was complete with hair and make-up that embraced a delicate nostalgia, she added. “An elevated coiffure embellished with intricately woven braids and soft freckles – a homage to time’s gentle caress.”

As for her makeup, Alia Bhatt looked daisy-fresh, her skin serving as a soft, radiant canvas for the rest of the look to shine through. A coral blush applied to the apples of her cheeks while the strategic highlighter placement along her cheekbones and on the bridge of her nose added a subtle shimmer and dimension to her skin. Soft brown kohl enhanced the shape of her eyes, while her mascara-coated lashes added intensity to her gaze. Her look was tied together with neatly filled-in brows and a pink-peach matte coral lipstick.

 Conclusion:

Alia Bhatt’s Sari represents everything that I think is great about the Met gala and the costume institute.

When a designer and an artist speaks so beautifully about the garment that they are wearing to the event then it helps exemplify the whole experience and the whole reason that we are there in the first place which is to celebrate the conservation of clothing as culture history.

In short,Alia Bhatt sari was hands down one of the favorite outfits of the Met Gala evening because it has these Indian elements and this RoCoco vibe.Colours of the Sari are so  beautiful and it’s just on point with the theme and the dress code for the evening.
