Sabyasachi Mukherjee’s extraordinary world of couture speaks of passion and grit. As he turns 43, we celebrate his aesthetic brilliance that has come to rule the design world. His masterpieces hold a place of pride in the closets of Bollywood’s most gorgeous fashionistas. From Sridevi to Deepika Padukone, these beauties swear by everything Sabyasachi.
Deepika Padukone’s hotness quotient soars beyond imagination in a sari. And if she’s wearing a Sabyasachi creation, her traditional avatar becomes the envy of every woman in the room (and outside it!). Deepika just can’t seem to do without Sabyasachi’s signature well detailed and heavily embroidered pieces. He makes her look simply divine.
It’s no coincidence that the most stunning of Kareena’s are Sabyasachi creations. He makes her look effortlessly elegant and royal. While Nawab Saif Ali Khan has royalty written all over him, it’s Sabya who tames Kareena’s quirky side to bring out the queen in her.
If you see carefully, you’ll notice that Kajol finds an unusual connect with Sabyasachi’s simpler designs. She shines even in his most basic ideas. Kajol doesn’t believe in OTT glamour and so, Sabya’s tactful underlying charm finds a way into her spontaneity, quirk and grace.
From being hunted down by every fashion blogger and reviewer for her lousy choices, to finding herself that much needed makeover, Sabyasachi changed the game for her. No wonder he’s Vidya Balan’s styling guardian angel and she just can’t do without him. Sabyasachi utilised her strong features and gave her the confidence to floor the audience at every single event. Needless to say, when in a Sabya garment, she shuns all her critics without a care. Now that’s a friend more than a designer.
Sridevi imbibes earnestly what Sabyasachi creates with all his heart. From dazzling lehengas to articulately crafted saris, she picks his heaviest pieces and airs them at the most suitable occasions. In a Sabyasachi, she’s a fool-proof beauty.
