Sari Style

Comment image 20

Sticking to her signature style, Amala kept it simple and elegant in her kalamkari sari while at a recent Awards event. Though it may fall in to the way-too-basic category for some of you, we think Ms. Akkineni looked lovely.

  1. She looks beautiful, elegant and classy as usual.
    Amala always wears cotton handloom sarees/salwars when dressing Indian.
    And those cotton sarees are not designer labels.
    Just regular ones but lots of varieties. Which also helps the poor weavers/conservation of our dying handloom industry. She is not included in the celebs (list) I was mentioning in Gaurang post. Respect for Amala.

    • Yeah like Karishma of the 90’s, Amala from the 80’s knows how to do elegance however designer or simple it maybe. This how sari exudes classiness, the others who only wear saris – high end designers but still look tacky/or shabby should take notes from her. :P

    • There is a website called thealternative(dot)in
      It guides you where to buy genuine Indian handloom online.
      It gives some websites one can buy the finest weaves in the country.
      These people are doing a fantastic job by cutting the middle men out and
      giving the benefits to the artisans and weavers who are actually
      toiling to make these things happen.

  2. She looks as timeless as her saris. She is a perfect example that you dont need to try too hard with bling and designer wear to look classy and elegant.

  3. AYYO! the Amala from Mani Ratnam’s Agni Nakshatram. SIGH! SIGH! SIGH!
    So gorgeous…. THANK YOU FOR THE PICTURE :))
    I am SO TIRED of seeing PeeCeee and Kangna on these pages.
    I dont care for the saree unfortunately… it looks like the knock offs of expensive crepe chiffons sold in bulk markets of Lajpat Nagar and Karol Bagh in Delhi :(

    But Amala…. LOOKS LOVELY. Can we please spot her more?
    Thanks P&P!!

  4. P&P , round of applause for you to feature her here.

    As lovely as she looks , it sends out right signals to HHC readers that this is how hand loom should be worn . And Repeatedly !

  5. She looks beautiful !!!!
    This is how many women dress in India everyday including my mom. Effortless, natural & comfortable !! They might not be “designer” wear, but they own the look.
    Thanks for featuring Amala here :)

  6. She has incredible skin and wears saree with such elegant ease. But I am not a fan of the saree at all. Not because it’s simple or basic but because it’s too bland like someone above mentioned. The border is too massive and the floral pattern is all over the place..but that’s just personal taste

  7. She looks gorgeous ! I love her saree selection always. She got my respect when she decided to not wear Silk Sarees because silk worms are killed in their making. Got to respect a woman who walks the talk so to say.

  8. Thanks for posting Amla and this gorgeous handloom/handicraft saree. Fashion ought to cover the gamut…and not just the designer names and bling associated with it. This is respect for HHC speaking! Kudos.
