Okay, okay calm down, people.
While you are all losing your mind over ‘cultural appropriation” of an Indian dress, nobody actually consulted THE INDIANS.
In our country, if a foreigner wears an Indian saree, we actually appreciate it. It shows that the foreigner respects us enough to try our clothes. And the saree, mind you, is not a religious thing. Hindus can wear sarees, Muslims can wear sarees, Sikh’s can wear sarees, Jain’s can wear sarees and so on.
Like Americans have short dresses, compare that with sarees. Going to a party? Saree. Going to temple? Saree, and so on.
Some Indians wear it, some don’t. Some hate it and think its oppressing, some love embracing the unique style.
Point is, don’t hate on her for wearing this. Don’t hate on anyone for wearing sarees or any variations of sarees. We love to see others embracing our culture. Why do you think we open our gates to allow everyone to practice yoga and fins spiritual meaning?
Culture is not meant to be kept within four walls, it should be spread.
I did not know this. That is really interesting to find out. Thanks for the information.
Except it’s still appropriation, in my opinion. She will still be seen as the white woman who got all ~*exotic*~ by wearing South Asian-esque clothing, but if a South Asian wears a REAL sari and puts a bindi on or headpiece like that, they are isolated for being foreign and traditional, and overall it still becomes a problem for South Asians in the Western world because they have a system of oppression working against them.
Also, she’s not even wearing a proper sari. I mean i guess the top could pass off as a sari blouse but she’s wearing a shalwar/salwar which should be worn underneath a kameez, not a sari. If some South Asian designer designed this for a South Asian woman to wear as some new fashion trend then sure, but a white woman who has nothing to do with South Asia?? And the jewelry she’s wearing is not worn by south asian women for everyday purposes. It more appropriate for a wedding. So even if she was ‘appreciating our culture’, she’s doing it wrong. And this is Lady Gaga we’re talking about, she doesn’t care about us South Asians. She just wants to look trendy and cool.
