3 times supermum Sridevi showed us why she is the undisputed desi fashion queen

Each time Sridevi graced the big screen, she changed the idea of desi fashion

Actor and mum of two, Sridevi was once hailed as the first female superstar of Indian cinema. She changed the landscape of the industry with her soul-stirring performances and captured the imagination of many.

But it was her quintessential desi style that caught everybody's attention. Whether it was the sultry Chandni with her chiffon sarees or the simple cotton saree-clad Shahi Godbole of Engligh Vinglish. Each time Sridevi graced the big screen, she changed the idea of desi fashion for many.

No wonder then she is today hailed the flag-bearer of desi fashion, with its many contemporary additions. She's championed the yummy mummy look without making it too obvious.

That's why she's our undisputed desi fashion queen who gave us some memorable traditional fashion ideas.

#1 The zari effect

Can Sridevi ever go wrong with her sartorial choices? Perhaps not! She chose this heavily embroidered Sabyasachi saree for an event and while many mums may stay away from such heavy styles for the sheer reason that it makes one look a bit chubby, Sridevi shows us how it's actually done.

A bun, a well-fitted blouse and a well-draped saree can make any woman look effortless. And if you've got the right accessories, you're more than sorted!

#2 The sharara moment

Her daughters may be winning the Internet with their bold and sensual fashion choices, Sridevi is an example of class and perhaps their biggest competitor when it comes to fashion. Even as a mum of two young daughters. she never fails to experiment and one classic example is her choice for a white sharara.

Many mums would shy away from such experiment, but not Sridevi. In fact, this picture not only gives us major fashion goals, but also major mum-daughter goals!

#3 The winning desi trio

Whether it is a heavily embroidered saree with a blouse that is fashionably on point, or a traditional kaanjeevaram or a simple kurta with cigarette pants, Sridevi is giving us major desi fashion goals with this picture.

She shows us how its done and quite clearly, her yummy mummy fashion is not unrelatable. She is wearing clothes that most regular mums would wear to several traditional occasions and perhaps that's why she's always looks relatable and her style is a practical inspiration.
