Five best saris from Dia Mirza’s stylish and sustainable wardrobe
Bollywood actress, Dia Mirza is also a climate change activist, who has always used her platform to spotlight fashion labels that support good causes. With an instinct to preserve the environment that informs her personal style, Dia is biased towards timeless saris. From cotton weaves to bridal-worthy drapes, here are our five best picks from the actress’ collection to inspire your next buy.
For the screening of her film, ‘Thappad’, Dia worked a simple white weave that featured polka dots. She always chooses to highlight conscious fashion during her public appearances and she did the same for this one too. We absolutely love how she kept the look very subtle with pin-straight hair and matching jewellery. She added pink lips to perfect the look.
Dia has always made meaningful choices that highlight the craftsmanship behind every pick. Last year, for Diwali, the actor pushed people to take a more eco-friendly approach to festive dressing by opting for handmade pieces that last a lifetime. To celebrate with her intimate crowd, she posed for the ‘gram is a striking yellow linen Anavila sari with woven zari checks. It also makes a great choice for someone who prefers lightweight Indian ensembles.
For her wedding with businessman Vaibhav Rekhi, Dia picked a rich Benarasi weave from one of her favourite brands, Raw Mango. Her choice for her big day was the brand’s ‘Chokadi’ Benarasi silk brocade sari in bridal red. It featured a floral jaal that was paired with a matching silk blouse and a customised organza dupatta.
Back in 2019, for an awards night, the actress dressed in a simple black Manish Malhotra sari that was crafted using lightweight satin floss. This drape was accentuated with a hand-crafted border with foliage motifs that run across it. The pallu featured silver and gold beaded tassels. Dia paired this sari with a backless blouse and cocktail jewellery by the same brand.
