Kanchipuram silk is one of the finest silk sarees that you can ever lay your hands on. A genuine kanchi silk saree is hand woven with pure silk, gold and silver threads. It is heavy to wear, but we haven’t seen one woman complain about it. Because when worn, the Kanchipuram silk saree is pure elegance. The silk saree got its name from a small village in Tamil Nadu where these sarees were first woven. It is also known as kanjeevaram and kanchi saree. Today, the fame and popularity of this silk saree has spread across the world. We often see our stars grace many occasions wearing regal Kanchipuram sarees.
Here are seven times when we loved to see our stars in Kanchipuram sarees :
1. Deepika Padukone in Pink Kanchipuram Saree
Being a south Indian herself, the actress often wears Kanchipuram sarees to award functions and filmy events. Deepika looks exceptionally beautiful in this pink and gold kanjeevaram saree. We loved how she paired the traditional saree with a sleeveless blouse of the same color. Glowy cheeks, nude lips and smokey eye makeup completed her look. The casual hair bun rounded up the look into something red carpet worthy.
2. Diya Mirza in Black Kanchipuram Saree
Black is a very beautiful color. Especially when it is on a kanchipuram saree. So, when Diya Mirza wore a beautiful black kanchi saree which has silver musical instrument motifs on it, we just stared in admiration. The elegant silk saree was accompanied with an elbow length sleeved blouse, diamond jewelry, red lips, red bindi and neatly done hair bun. The poise with which she carried the look is admirable.
3. Hina Khan in Red Kanchipuram Saree
Hina Khan is well known for her modern looks. So, when she wore this regal red and gold kanchipuram saree, and carried it so perfectly ours jaws just dropped and stayed there. You cannot stop admiring how beautiful the actress looked in the traditional silk saree. Red and gold blouse with embroidered motifs, traditional kundan jewelry and a center parted tight bun were part of the the look. We loved her smokey eyes, nude makeup and gajra around the bun.
4. Rakul Preet in Kanchipuram Saree
Rakul often wears kanchipuram sarees to events. We especially loved this beautiful pink and green silk saree because it is simple and graceful. The matching designer blouse, large earrings, puffed hair bun and flowers around it just made the look so easy breezy.
5. Rekha in Kanchipuram Saree
One person we are reminded of when we think of a silk saree is Rekha. She is always, I repeat always seen in a kanchi saree when she is at an event. We are not complaining because we love her silk saree collection. In fact, we envy the number of silk sarees that she owns. All colors, shades and designs probably. Here we see her in a beautiful blood red and golden Kanchipuram silk saree dressed up like a goddess. She is wearing traditional jewelry including a maang tika. Glowy makeup, red lips, a potli in her hand, she looks charming as ever.
6. Shriya Saran in Kanchipuram Saree
As she is part of many south movies, Shriya has become one of the south Indian actresses. She is often seen wearing the traditional south Indian silk saree. Here we see her in a pink and gold Kanchipuram saree in a casual avatar. She isn’t too traditional as there is free hair and minimal makeup. But, she hasn’t forgotten the large chandbalis and the bangles to add that touch of desiness.
7. Sneha Prasanna in Kanchipuram Saree
Sneha is one more actress who doesn’t shy away from wearing the silk sarees to any event. She looks absolutely stunning in her kanchi silk saree looks. Here she is seen wearing a gold and pink silk saree with a slight touch of modernity. A contrast purple sleeveless blouse , messy bun and antique pearl jewelry are worn to make the look traditional and modern at the same time.
These are some of the Kanchipuram saree looks of actresses that we love.
