From the sari revolution and henna tattoos to the lehenga going couture — India has been on Hollywood’s mind for a while, and the inspiration continues. Often in news for her wacky fashion choices, pop queen Lady Gaga decided to go the desi route recently on a night out in New York City. Complete with a maang teeka, haath phool, nath and her own take on a sari drape, the singer looked like she was heading for a Bollywood-themed party."Gaga was never the diva to play it safe. She transcends the pop icon route by re-inventing herself at every event. While the world takes a stereotypical take on how Indian jewellery and drapes are supposed to be worn, Gaga’s brilliance shines through," says designer Anand Bhushan. On the other hand, designer Nikhil Thampi says, "I was a fan of her over-the-top looks, but I guess it was a fad. This look of Gaga, for me, is not pleasing. But I respect her for being so experimental."
