Natasha Poonawalla adds a stunning desi twist to her Met Gala 2022 ensemble by wearing a gold Sabyasachi saree

Natasha Poonawalla, Executive Director of the Serum Institute of India (SII), represented India in tones of gold at the Met Gala 2022.

Villoo Poonawalla Foundation’s Chairperson chose a gold handcrafted patterned tulle sari with a lengthy trail designed by celebrity designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee.

The gold saree worn by the 40-year-old was intricately embroidered with silk floss thread and adorned with bevel beads, semi-precious stones, crystals, sequins, and appliqued printed velvet.

The jewellery collection was curated from custom pieces by Sabyasachi Fine Jewellery and limited edition collectibles from Sabyasachi’s Curiosity Art & Antiquity Project — all of which were fashioned utilizing traditional techniques and precious and semi-precious stones.

For a dramatic effect, the entrepreneur combined her saree with a hand-forged metal bustier by Maison Schiaparelli, an Italian brand famed for its surrealist art.

Sabyasachi explained that Poonawalla intended for the dress code to be interpreted as ‘gilded glamour’ with a desi touch, highlighting the country’s multiculturalism and authenticity. This year, the designer’s goal of seeing the saree at an international fashion event came true.

“Sarees, in my opinion, are truly unique and versatile garments that retain their individuality while transcending boundaries and geographies. As a young fashion student, I frequently pondered when I will see sarees at major global fashion events such as the Met Gala “Mukherjee made the statement in a statement.

Poonawalla previously attended the Met in 2019 in support of the ‘Camp’ theme, donning a custom-made Dundas gown.
