Vidya just experimented with her saree and it’s such a refreshing change!

Hallelujah! Now that’s why we call Vidya Balan the undisputable Queen of sarees. Loyal to her South Indian roots, she has now become synonymous with kanjeevarams with zari designs along with her trademark heavy jhumkas. But this time, during one of the rounds of promotions of her upcoming film ‘Tumhari Sulu’, she pleasantly surprised us with the way the saree was draped.

Vidya chose a light blue saree with a floral print by Payal Singhal. But here’s the interesting part. She added a twist to her saree look by teaming it up with a black high-low top that almost looked like a cape. As if that was not enough, she experimented with the pallu too and wore it like a stole. All she did was twist the pallu end around the neck instead of resting it on the left shoulder and let the other end loose in the front.

This style is actually the traditional Assamese drape, which is quite popular with northeastern women who primarily wear it for convenience during dance performances. The actress completed the ensemble with dainty jewelry from Moha by Geetanjali and Amrapali that enhanced her avatar. Simple middle-parted hair done by stylist Shalaka Bhosle and no-fuss makeup completed her look.

The change in drape style definitely made for a welcome change of pace and stood out quite a bit for us. It totally amped up her look. Agree?
