Sorry, that's not a Sari

Not a Sari_800x465.png
The front page of Vogue India detailing the 'not a Sari' worn by Sarah Jessica Parker on the show "Just Like That."

When the Sex and City reboot “Just Like That” chose to go multi-culti Indian, they decided to make it a Diwali episode and have Sarah Jessica Parker in a resplendent sari.
Except it wasn’t a sari at all. It was an entirely different Indian outfit called a lehenga. Sandip Roy says it’s like trying to pass off a fisherman’s beret as a cowboy Stetson. Or peanut butter as hummus.
