When you think of huge stylish bindis with a gajra and a zari saree, the first person who comes to your mind is Usha Uthup. "I never planned to become a style icon. My mother used to drape a saree and so did my sister.

I come from a very middleclass background and I just draped sarees as I didn’t know how to wear any other outfit and carry it off with style.

I am glad that a saree, a gajra and a big bindi could become such a big thing. It’s a pleasure that this simple traditional attire has become my style quotient,” she says. Usha, you sure are a trend-setter!
