Sarees are not the only Indian outfit. If you want to make a traditional style statement then you can also try lehenga cholis. Many celebrities look hot in lehengas. These clothes are meant to look gorgeous and bold. Many designers specialise in making lehengas. For example, Manish Malhotra and Tarun Tahiliani are famous for their designer lehengas.

A lehenga is not like a saree. A saree suits every one whether they are plump or skinny. But to look good in a lehenga, your vital stats need to be perfect. Many celebrities do not carry the lehenga very well, but there are a few who look ravishing in the traditional Indian outfit. There are various types of lehenga styles that are in fashion. A lehenga can be made very revealing and sexy. A lehenga can also be made to look demure. Indian celebrities try all the lehenga styles depending on their taste and comfort.
In India, bridal lehenga is the most common attire for the bride. Usually women wear lehenga for various functions that precede the wedding. Celebrities too wear lehengas for their wedding days unless they are having a very traditional wedding ceremony. They choose the designer for their bridal lehenga with utmost care.
