Deepika Padukone Looks Divine As She Turns Muse For Sabyasachi, See Pics

Actress Deepika Padukone and ace designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee make a fabulous team. We say so because while one breathes life into his creations by way of flawless hand-embroideries, traditional motifs, motifs of flora and fauna, and using different techniques and forms of embellishments, keeping heritage and culture alive while maintaining that his ensembles are relevant in modern times, Deepika on the other hand, creates magic and brings alive the beauty and hard work with which the garments have been so carefully and beautifully crafted.

And while we have seen the duo team up on several occassions, Deepika's love for Sabyasachi outfits, especially sarees is quite well-known, recently, the two got together for #SabyasachiForNilaya -- a range of designer wallpapers from the designer, at Nilaya by Asian Paints, that has been inspired from makhmal/velvet representing wealth.

Sabyasachi released the wallpaper collection, that featured his muse Deepika Padukone, online. And while the wallpapers nothing like what we have seen before, we couldn't help take off our eyes from the ethereal beauty that is Deepika.

Deepika, who sported carefully designed Sabyasachi sarees and jewellery, exuded royalness and looked divine as she posed for the cameras for the photoshoot. From sporting a breathtakingly beautiful peach-pink heritage Benarasi saree that featured a marori border with a matching ric blouse to looking stunningly beautiful and graceful in an off-white six-yard wonder, Deepika's beauty is beyond words.

Take a look.

If you grew up in Bengal at the time I was growing up, sometime between 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! #Sabyasachi #TheWorldOfSabyasachi #TheSabyasachiArtFoundation #DeepikaPadukone #AsianPaints #Nilaya #SabyasaschixAsianPaints #SabyasachiForNilaya @worldofnilaya @asianpaints @deepikapadukone

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. #Sabyasachi #TheWorldOfSabyasachi #TheSabyasachiArtFoundation #DeepikaPadukone #AsianPaints #Nilaya #SabyasaschixAsianPaints #SabyasachiForNilaya @worldofnilaya @asianpaints @deepikapadukone

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! #Sabyasachi #TheWorldOfSabyasachi #TheSabyasachiArtFoundation #DeepikaPadukone #AsianPaints #Nilaya #SabyasaschixAsianPaints #SabyasachiForNilaya @worldofnilaya @asianpaints @deepikapadukone
