    • oh come on, not every gold-and-cream combination in the world is inspired by the Kerala saree! the mekhala-sador tradition of Assam is at least as old as the kasavu-kada, and this is a classic combination across the world!

    • @nivedita expand your horizon! Every gold and white is not a Kerala saree! Apart from the mekhela sador, gold and white is also a traditional combination for Bengali taant and the sambhalpuri sarees. And these handloom treasures are way older than your Kerala saree

I am from Assam…and this is our traditional outfit..what Sharmila TAgore is wearing is a simpler version than what most brides in Assam wears.white and gold is what normally every bride wears..so pl get yr facts right

  1. She looks extremely elegant in Traditional Mekhela Sador. The colour contrast is similar to that of Kasavu Saree.This set of Mekhela Sador(Assam Silk) is traditionally worn by Bride during her Pheras. Loved the way she carried herself.Pure Axomiya:)

  2. why a thousand eye rolls for Nivedita, some of us may have heard of just the Kerala style saree and not about Assam/Bengali white and gold combination. It is not “your Kerala”! please put your daggers back!

  3. Each state has its own charming traditional wear.. But, you cannot be ignorant and say “inspired” which is equivalent to “copied” !!! The traditional assamese Mekhela Sador is ages old and has so many colour and material combinations, sequins etc that would be understood if you open up your horizon and give due credit to it !!

  4. Im so happy that she picked a tradional handloom saree (such a beauty) over trashy designer saris(read MM creations). She looks so classy and elegant.

  5. Kudos for choosing a traditional loom saree over all the blingy, filmy sarees that are available to her. This lady has class and nothing speaks, no screams, class than a classic!! Love it!

    • The drape was a giveaway. From what we’ve seen of kasavus, they don’t have an all over pattern which this one did. On a kasavu sari, you’ll see a border and a pattern on the pallu. Again, we aren’t experts either.

  7. Can’t say ignore any longer, it’s called misleading information mainly due to the person’s lack of knowledge. Btwn Sharmila Tagore’s mother was an Assamese, Ira Baruah.
