Sabyasachi Saree Appears at Met Gala 2022
NEW YORK, NY (IANS) – Indian socialite and businesswoman Natasha Poonawalla looked drop-dead gorgeous as she showcased Indian fashion on the Met Gala 2022 red carpet.
She nailed the ‘Gilded Glamour’ theme for the night. She looked every-inch gorgeous in a fashion designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee’s golden saree and jewels, whereas the bustier came from the house of Schiaparelli.
The infusion of desi glamour and the American-inspired theme instantly brought notice.
Sabyasachi said on Instagram: “For me the sari is a truly unique and versatile garment that owns its identity even as it transcends boundaries and geographies. Back when I was a young fashion student, I often wondered when I would see the sari at big global fashion events like the Met Gala.”
“For the 2022 Met Gala, themed ‘In America: An Anthology of Fashion’, Natasha Poonawalla’s vision was to interpret the dress code ‘gilded glamour’ with an Indian gaze that revels in its multi-culturalism and authenticity.”
Sabyasachi celebrated Indian craftsmanship with a gold handcrafted printed tulle sari and trail embroidered with silk floss thread and embellished with bevel beads, semi-precious stones, crystals, sequins and appliqued printed velvet.
Sabyasachi added: “The jewellery is a curation of custom pieces from Sabyasachi Fine Jewellery and limited-edition collectibles from Sabyasachi’s Curiosity Art & Antiquity Project-crafted using traditional techniques with precious and semi-precious stones.
Natasha styled the look with sleek open hairdo, nude blush pink lip shade, embellished nails, bold winged eyeliner, metallic eye shadow, blushed skin, beaming highlighter and sharp contouring.
