The year 2016 was great for ethnic fashion with celebrities sporting Indian ethnic wear at events, award functions, parties, weddings and even the red carpet. And the saree clearly topped the list of ethnic fashion favourites. Though many of our Bollywood divas flaunted the six-yard wonder with panache this year, it’s hard to beat Shilpa Shetty at her game. The hot diva has not just aced the saree look, but has gone beyond the obvious to elevate the charm of the quintessential saree. Here’s a round-up of the hottest saree looks the curvy beauty sported this year!
Dressed in a flaming orange georgette saree, Shilpa Shetty channels the glam goddess in her in true filmi style here. Be it her hair, the bindi, the sexy choli or the minimal makeup, we just love everything about this look! Don’t miss the chunky silver oxidised necklace that doubled up as a sexy kamarband. Quite a style inspiration this one, isn’t it?

2. Mermaid style
Shilpa Shetty took ethnic-chic to another level when she wore this cream peach saree by Monisha Jaising. Looking like a vision in this designer saree with paisley embroidery, she pulled off this number with ease. The mermaid style drapes showed off her curves beautifully. However, the embellished net blouse with a matching bodice underneath was the highlight of the look. The elegant hairdo, accessories and that deep red nail paint complimented the look beautifully.

3. Sunny side up
Shilpa Shetty nailed a look that we have shied away from all our lives (though secretly wanting to pull it off like a pro!). The leggy beauty sported a yellow Manish Malhotra saree with floral embroidery along with a maroon velvet sleeveless blouse. And she looks oh-so-pretty in a colour combination that’s tricky to pull off. But then again, the lady is known to take fashion risks and turn them into the hottest trends. Here’s one that’s going to make it to the 2017 trend list.

4. The style edge
We are a big fan of all of Shilpa Shetty’s saree looks, but this one is our favourite! Not everyone can look like a million bucks in a peach and sky blue satin saree, and that border with metallic plates just knocks the ball out of the park! We loved the minute details of the look which include the ear cuffs, the metallic bracelet, the rings and of course those side swept curls! Absolutely picture perfect!
5. A cold shoulder
This one makes it to our list cos this could easily be a great example of blending trend and tradition. In this look, Shilpa Shetty rocks a beige satin saree with a bright pink border, but the real showstopper is the cold shoulder blouse with heavy bead work on the neckline. We love the blouse as it takes care of your necklace needs as well! Now, that’s what we call a smart choice!

6. The bold and the beautiful
If you thought pastels can’t make a statement, thing again! The Bollywood diva sports another pastel number with delicate lace work and floral patch work on the borders, and she looks absolutely ethereal in it. Once again, she chose to amp up her look by picking a blouse with back straps. Now, doesn’t she look gorgeous in it?

7. Saree with a twist
Doesn’t she look absolutely stunning in this marsala inspired saree by Anita Dongre? While the saree was pretty simple, the innovative styling managed to grab our attention. Paired with a top style blouse, the saree was clinched at the waist with a cloth belt. She went easy on the accessories to let the colour be the stand out factor of her look. Hats off for that amazing sense of style!

8. Tribal chic
A look that many celebrities would steer clear of, Shilpa rocked this black and blue number like a pro! Right from the thinly pleated pallu to that blouse with heavy tribal inspired embroidery — there was nothing we didn’t love about this look. The silver bajuband and handcuff did exactly what accessories are expected to do! However, the messy fishtail braid and that million dollar smile just stole our hearts.
9. Mirror Mirror
The diva took elegance to another level in this pale pink saree and we cannot help but drool. The highlight of the look was the blouse with beautiful mirror work on it and that glittery pink clutch was cute as buttons! We couldn’t take our eyes off this look, how about you?
10. Dreamy lace
This beautiful lace saree just took our breath away! Paired with a lace blouse with a fish net pattern at the back, the lady looked like a dream. She added a hint of colour with a clutch style purse and kadas and earrings. Simple yet elegant, this look gets a thumbs up from us!
