We all know that women look GREAT in sarees, but did you ever expect to see the likes of Lady Gaga, Madonna, Samantha Cameron or Audrey Hepburn in one? Neither did we. Despite how tricksy they are to wear sometimes, a saree never fails to have wow factor and here are 20 celebrities who've also jumped on the trend.
1. Oprah Winfrey
Entertainment queen Oprah, discovers what Asian girls have known since the dawn of time - sarees are a curves' best friend.
2. Nicole Scherzinger
We reported on it at the time, and shared this shocking pink saree as worn by Nicole during the Grand Hinduja Wedding.
3. Pussy Cat Dolls
For the promotion of A.R. Rahman's Jai Ho, The Dolls donned their sarees once more.
With it's short choli top and figure hugging drape, the saree is made for the toned abs of singer Shakira as this shot from one of her gigs shows.
5. Eva Mendes
Hot on the heels of Shakira for title of best non-desi in a saree could be Eva.
6. Samantha Cameron
Our very own 'First Lady' wore this conservative number on a recent visit with husband and UK Prime Minister David Cameron to visit Indian PM Narendra Modi.
7. Victoria Beckham
From Political Royalty to Pop Royalty, this former Spice Girl has more than cut her fashion teeth now and knows her way around the international fashion scene.
8. Gisele Bundchen
The Brazilian supermodel known for her body, still looks smokin' almost covered up.
9. Shashi Kapoor
We really didn't expect to see this celebrity in a saree. Ok it's not exactly a saree. But when Shashi Kapoor donned a fully embroidered shalwar kameez, we bet he would've trended if Instagram had been around.
10. Elizabeth Hurley
We're seeing a bit too much of this 'celeb in a saree' for our liking, but good ole' Liz has always loved to make headlines and this braless number is no exception.
11. Naomi Campbell
She's walked the ramp many a time in nine yards of loveliness. But where this supermodel differs is that she actually wears them 'off duty' occasionally too, not just 'for work'.
12. Julia Roberts
Julia looked right at home when she wore this green and gold saree for the filming of Hollywood remake of 'Eat, Pray, Love'. She's also been known to wear them just because she loves them and has been muted to be a follower of Hindu traditions.
A true chameleon, this is one celebrity probably did expect to see experimenting. Madge is no stranger to style shifts.
14. Lady Gaga
This is one style icon that likes to 'mix it up' to varying degrees of success. This classic ivory saree is a definite 'thumbs up'.
15. Audrey Hepburn
Ah always, ahead of her time. When Audrey wore this cream saree with nearly invisible she definitely set the trend for others to follow.
16. Pamela Anderson
Known for the orange Baywatch swim suit, this demure angelic saree suits her just the same.
17. Anna Kournikova
Whilst not the best attire for a game of tennis, looking like this will get this tennis ace a whole different kind of love-game-set-and-match!
18. Jessica Alba
Here's Jess performing a scene from the Mike Myers Hollywood movie "The Love Guru".
19. Paris Hilton
This millionairess really does look a million dollars in traditional dress.
20. Shah Rukh Khan
Last but not least, wait, it's no saree, but we're pretty sure that SRK usually wears the trousers!
