Deepika Padukone is an epitome of beauty and by turning renowned designer Sabyasachi's muse, she has just proved it! The actress looks resplendent in the Bengali and a mix of Rajasthani culture-inspired traditional outfits. She spells beauty in these pictures the way she looked ethereal in her recent-released film, 'Padmaavat'.

The dimpled-beauty brought her own charm and poise to Sabyasachi's collections. From red to off-white sarees, she donned the traditional Bengali attire. Deepika executed the designer's vision beautifully and her expressions spoke about every minuscule detail Sabyasachi wanted to convey. A splash of Rajasthani 'maang teeka' with the Bengali saree added wonders to the look.

However, one of Bollywood's favourite designer, Sabyasachi, posted several pictures of Deepika and described every picture and the concept behind those photos and designs.

For the first picture Sabyasachi wrote: "If you grew up in Bengal at the time I was growing up, sometime between the late seventies and early eighties, you would know that the consumer was the designer. I spent hours watching my mother and her friends stretching organdy sarees over hand frames and hand painting exotic blooms on them. More often than not, they would match the blooms in their sarees to the real blooms on their hair. Talk about style! This is my homage to them. My mother and all her Bengal art school friends. What they lacked in terms of resources, they always over compensated with imagination. That is the true art of dressing well and good housekeeping!

He described the second post as "In 2002, I rented my first apartment. And moved in there with my tailors and pattern makers. It was all under a thousand square feet. It would become my home, my factory and my atelier! I hand-painted the walls in 'Bengal Red' with motifs of flora and fauna inspired by the tree of life! The horses back then did look like rabbits and one bird I am sure looked a bit like a nondescript reptile. Old habits die hard and so a better version of the tree of life makes a second appearance. In Coromandel Red – dextrously hand-painted by The Sabyasachi Art Foundation.”

"The homes of North Calcutta always fascinate me. Through winding lanes and decrepit alleys, one often stumbles upon 'Paradise lost'. Humble tea stalls, crumbling book binding factories and dingy mustard oil presseries make way for forlorn palaces and music rooms of erstwhile 'zamindars'. A lesson in sheer hedonistic maximalism. Osler and Baccarat chandeliers, completely engulfed in a shroud of cobwebs occasionally twinkling in the late afternoon sunlight, Devonshire china holding on for dear life on creaky cabinets, jostling for space amidst hand-painted tin and an occasional Lifebuoy soap perched precariously on a silver salver. Works of great European and Bengali masters co-existing in communal harmony with a calendar from a local pharmaceutical company, a withering taxidermy and Fuji-colour rendered black and white family portraits.
As a parakeet and a cockatoo chirp in unison from the courtyard, my fingers swipe the dust from the walls to unveil yet another treasure. A hand-painted wallpaper from Paris, finely outlined with 18 carat gold!
And one thought one knew the city!” was written to describe the beauty and design in detail.
