The red silk creation, meticulously crafted by Jayanti Reddy, wasn’t just a fashion statement; it was a celebration of craftsmanship. ‘Naturally dyed’ and featuring intricate hand embroidery, the sari embodied old-world charm and understated elegance, championed by the designer’s commitment to sustainable and traditional techniques.

“A timeless attire,” Sini gushed, “This Banarasi Silk Sari captures the essence of who I am and where I come from.” The contrasting purple blouse added a touch of modern appeal, showcasing Reddy’s signature blend of comfort and structured elements.

But Sini's look wasn't complete without the exquisite details. “Precious stones-studded earrings, a maangtika, a gold ring, and a set of bangles” from Curio Cottage complemented the sari’s richness, while soft curls, rosy cheeks, and winged eyeliner completed the glamorous picture. Styled by Raksha Singh, Sini exuded confidence and grace, ready to take on the Miss World stage.
