Talking about her attire, Sini gushed, “This timeless attire embodies grace, dignity and the essence of femininity. Stepping into this legacy, I am thrilled to drape myself in this Banarasi Silk Saree by Jayanti Reddy. It captures the old-world charm and understated elegance, championing indigenous fabrics that are naturally dyed and celebrating the art of handwoven textiles. Adorned with intricate hand embroidery, the craftsmanship and meticulous attention to detail elevate the designs, making a classical and deeply personal fashion statement.”

The red silk Benaras saree with border was elegantly contrasted with a purple embroidered blouse that oozed oomph. The six yards of elegance is credited to designer Jayanti Reddy's eponymous luxury label that is known for its classy and chic couture collections and exemplifies traditional clothing with a unique sense of style and minimalist design while portraying old world charm and understated elegance with a strong emphasis on indigenous fabric that is naturally dyed.

Jayanti Reddy's hand woven textiles are embellished with intricate hand embroidery. Sini elaborated, “Jayanti Reddy’s collections stand out for their style, creativity, and the perfect blend of comfort with structured elements, offering diversity, occasion-worthiness, and timelessness in every piece. Wrapped in this masterpiece, I feel connected to the roots of our heritage, all while stepping forward in a world where tradition meets contemporary elegance.”

The red silk saree originally costs 225,900 on the designer website.
