Saree style gowns are not a very recent innovation. We saw the first gown styles like a saree 2 decades back when Princess of Wales, Diana wore it. The fuchsia coloured gown draped like a saree with a pallu became a rage in the nineties. But slowly, this trend of gowns inspired by the Indian saree style faded away. However, last year, when Paris Hilton arrived in India to launch her handbag store, she wore a pink coloured saree style gown. This brought back the trend of saree gowns styles in motion again. Another exquisite example of gowns that look like a saree was worn by Hollywood celebrity Haydon Panettiere at one of the events in 2012. Saree style gowns basically mimic the fall and drape of a saree. The gowns styled in this way often come with a ‘pallu’ or a drape handing loose from the shoulders. Even a normal one shoulder gown can be given the look of a saree style outfit if the sleeve is loose like ‘pallu’. Here are some of the best gowns that have been inspired from the Indian saree.
