Posted on January 17 2016
Maharani Gayatri Devi
Sometimes you want an elegant and classic beauty to inspire a lacklustre sartorial rut... what better way than to explore gorgeous ladies in royalty! So perfect for the wedding season and if you're looking for a little vintage flair in your Indian-wear wardrobe.
Once named as the most beautiful woman in the world by Vogue, Maharani Gayatri Devi is a style icon who surpasses eras of Indian fashionistas. She epitomised grace and understated elegance like few others and fascinating stories about her life still reign large even after her demise in 2009. In fact, even famed fashion designer Sabyasachi launched a limited range of 5 gorgeous saris inspired by the Maharani in 2013.
Her best known look has to be a chic chiffon saree with gemstones like emeralds or strings of pearls. Classy and chic. In fact her mother was the first to start the trend of chiffon sarees back in the day! The Maharani took a keen interest in her jewellery and often favoured soft colours like pink, rose, citron, turquoise and similar pastels. Her blouses generally were adorned with handmade buttons and had 10 inch sleeves, a popular trend for that time.
The 'people's princess' as Maharani Gayatri Devi was known, was always perfectly turned out. Whether it was a royal soiree, an interview or hobnobbing with politicos, she was effortlessly stylish!
