    AH! She looks ravishing. LOVE the saree. Itching to see a bindi with this look..but that’s a minor gripe ;)

    Pochampalli ikkat sarees, Gadwal sarees, Narayanpet sarees and many more weaves are from my state. I can proudly say. She looks beautiful, lovely and elegant in that saree. Lovely saree. Absolutely love this look of hers. Wish she would dress like this more often.

      Hey if you want to support the many beautiful prints and weaves of A.P. and Telangana, you should check out some of the designers who are using them in contemporary outfits and not limiting them to sarees.

        I am relentless supporter, admirer and buyer of our country’s weaves, if you have any idea of the designers you can mention them.

      Am a huge fan of these beautiful, elegant weaves from my region. Respect to the master craftsmen who weave these. Lovely saree. Nice drape. A bindi would have elevated this look by a zillion.

        Yes respect and credit to the hardworking and phenomenally talented handloom weavers of India.

    She does look lovely and it is a gorgeous saree, but why would you wear silver ear rings when your saree has so much gold in it?!

    Wow!! I’m blown away.. I still miss a big red bindi on the forehead with this outfit though.

      Apart from a missing bindi, this is perfect. Never seen Sush in a Traditional saree look like this.

    This is NOT a Narayanpet. This is a regular Kanchipuram saree. Please get your facts right.

      Get ur weaves right girls. Else stick to the word “handloom”. This is a Kanchipuram. Not Narayanpeth. Pay attention to the borders and pallu. A crash course at Nallis should help! What a sorry state… We love rattling off international labels and can recognize them from a distance, but flunk bad in our traditional weave id. Won’t be surprised if my comment isn’t published.

      This is not a kanchipuram saree lady.. This IS a narayanpet saree.. Narayanpet silks might resemble kanchivarams but the contrast border with the thin triangular checkered pattern is a traditional narayanpet design..

        This IS a Narayanpet saree. The border design is unique to Narayanpet.

        Contrast Saree with small triangular border: Narayan Peth Saree?!?! Then all the ikkats, pochampally, some tangaail and some kanchipurams get into this category!!
        A narayanpeth will have zari borders only as 2-3 stripes in a buti-cross box design inside the contrasting border. The contrast color hogs most of the border 60-70% not the zari. ALWAYS!
        The pallu will have either zari horizontal zari box stripes slightly thicker than the border.
        Sushs pallu has all the paisley and zari work of classic kanchipurams! Just because it has some traits of a Naranperth it’s isn’t one.
        Last put not the least check her blouse out: the border again has a le pakshi edge!
        Dealing with textiles for 2 decades: eye rolling on the ignorance of a “little knowledge is a dangerous thing of some of the commenters Narayanpeth vouch!”
        Peace & Cheers!

      Either Narayanpet or Kancheepuram, it is beautiful INDIAN Handloom saree, looking lovely.
      Jai Hind!

    Amazing!! So happy to see Sush in non-black clothes.

    Love, love, love. She looks absolutely beautiful. Classic red and white silk, timeless. Fantastic jewelry. Of course the charm and confidence really blows me away. Hopefully Aishwarya Rai may see these pics and learn how gorgeous one can look wearing simple outfits.

    Love the color combination of this saree. It is graceful without aging her. Beautiful! A bindi would be nice but not a deal breaker.

    Divine, that is the word that best describes this look..
