Remembering the Late Legend Sridevi: The queen of simplicity and chiffon sarees


Been a year since we lost a gem of our industry. February 24 marks the death anniversary of the late legendary actress, Sridevi. Our hearts still grieve the loss of the fine artist, a beautiful human being and a sartorial icon.

While we feel the void, we also cherish the vivid memories of her. One such distinct memory is the legend and her love for chiffon sarees. Be it for a movie, a media appearance or the red carpet, Sridevi had seldom turned to the classic chiffon drape for her #OOTD's and that is what makes it iconic!

So, as we talk a stroll down the memory lane, we bring to you iconic looks by the legend herself, that we will cherish forever:

the chandni white

The actress, who was fondly known as Chandni(moonlight) herself, wore this, now iconic, white saree in the movie. This look had set the bars rather high for many heroines to follow. Ethereal!

the Mr. India blue

Another iconic look was the blue saree! While we cannot have enough of the actress as is, we cannot rule out the fact that she looked like a smokeshow in this simple yet beautiful drape. We remember the #majorcrush phase when all everyone talked about was the legend in that blue saree!

red hot!

If the white and blue sarees failed to give you sleepless nights, we have a present for you! This crisp red saree, the blue waters and the enchantress herself...we cannot help but scream 'ICONIC'!

of summer hues

Sridevi's style was one of the classic elements that we can never forget or get it wrong. The actress stuck to the most basic and old-school styles with very little room for experiments and a whole lotta space for charm and elegance. Like this yellow basic, yet we cannot help but stop and stare!

ivories and gold

White and gold will always be a cult classic and probably one of Sridevi's favorite combinations too! The actress wore this ethereal white drape with golden detailing and we can't help but take a *deep sigh*! Kuch kuch hota hai, tum nahi samjhoge...

pretty in pink

Looking modish as always, the late legend wore this ombre pink saree with shimmery pink borders and a matching blouse for an event. While the actress undoubtedly looked resplendent, we noticed that she pulled off a monochrome look effortlessly. Such grace, much wow!

For her appearance as Shashi on screen, the actress fused her sense of style with the simplicity of her character. Minimalistic prints, florals and muted colors were majorly seen and without a doubt, the actress still looked as elegant as ever!

Been a year since we lost her but it only feels like yesterday. Your sartorial legacy and fine work will always have a place in our hearts. RIP legend, you'll always be missed!
