Naomi Campbell may have won many a Indian heart by walking down the ramp in a saree, but our Indian beauties are equally fond of wearing the six-yard wonder.

While we were busy with the fashion weeks in the capital, actress Lara Dutta, who was in Delhi for business, looked haute in a red saree. Did she choose the saree because it is considered hot by Indian women over all other Western outfits? But I did not start wearing a saree only now. I wore one when I was crowned Miss Universe. If I had the choice to live in New York, Id wear the saree to all international events too! Its been my choice for the longest time ever, she said. Well Lara, you do look elegant in the red drape.

And what is keeping her busy, why did she leave the city without making an appearance at any of the fashion weeks? I am very busy with my film Blue. Ive been quite tied up with it and took out a day to especially come and be a part of an event in the capital because I like and know the people here, she said.
