Malaika Arora's Sheer Ivory Faux Pearl Sari Deserves a Spot in Your Occasionwear Wardrobe

The exquisitely embellished diaphanous drape features pristine pearl work and intricate sequin detailing.

Subdued, muted hues are pleasing to the eye all season long. They quickly go from day to night and are versatile enough to pair with a slew of accessories. Malaika Arora’s ivory sequin sari is one such ensemble that won’t fail to impress on any given occasion.

The Dilnaz Karbhary sheathed net creation has been paired with a pearl diamante-embellished bustier and 30mm royal studs by homegrown label Anāash. A Victorian oval polki ring and Victorian flower motif ring by Roopa Vohra, and a clutch by Ahikoza, complete the look. The star complemented her opulent outfit with subtle, understated makeup—soft smokey eyes, a nude lip, and lightly blushed cheeks.

Malaika, however, isn’t the first to don a pearly number. More recently, actors Sonam Kapoor and Deepika Padukone sported pearl-embellished ethnic attires. At the Cannes Film Festival, Deepika wore a custom Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla chiffon sari, while Sonam, too, dressed her bump in a bespoke creation by the designer duos.
