On Tuesday, Upasana Kamineni revealed the story behind the white saree that she wore to the 95th Academy Awards. The hand-woven saree was crafted by artisans from her home state, Telangana. Upasana shared pictures of herself in the stunning ensemble and provided insights into her attire. According to her, the saree was designed by Hyderabad-based artist Jayanti Reddy, using hand-woven silk spun from recycled scraps to align with her sustainable fashion philosophy. The saree was traditional, bespoke and elegant. The elaborate Lilium neckpiece, by avant-garde Mumbai-based jewellery designer, Bina Goenka, featured high-quality natural gemstones like pearls and approximately 400 carats of rubies that cannot be replicated. The craftsmanship was exceptional, reflecting the dedication and hard work that went into creating these exquisite pieces. Upasana appreciated the intricate attention to detail that set her to look apart from the rest. She wrote, “I truly appreciate the hard work, dedication, passion and labour of love that have gone into creating these beautiful pieces for me. It’s the intricate attention to detail that sets this look apart from the rest.”
