Remember the time when aunties and grandmothers would gawk at young single girls wearing sarees. They are only for the married women they were told. Gone are those days. The elegant outfit is now seen being worn by women of all ages regardless of their marital status.

The trend of wearing sarees has really taken off and we see our favorite celebrities rocking the red carpet at various events in them. Here we take a look at some of the recent celebrity sightings. Let us know which one you liked best.


At the LUX Style 2016 Mathira walked the red carpet in a Mansoor Akram saree. She paired the outfit with jhumkaas. Her particular choice of saree, we felt was a bit much for the award show but kudos to her for trying to keep it traditional.
