US Ambassador To India MaryKay Celebrates Independence Day By Wearing Kanjeevaram Saree

On Independence Day, MaryKay Carlson, the U.S. Ambassador to India, took to Twitter to share an image of herself in a beautiful traditional saree. “#SareeSearch success! Excited to attend #IndependenceDayIndia celebration wearing the voters’ choice – Kanjeevaram. #WeWearCulture” she captioned her post on Twitter.

For a while now, Carlson has been on a mission to find the right saree. She posted an array of photos and questions under the hashtag #SareeSearch and asked people to share their views. Not too long ago, Carlson had carried out a Twitter poll where she asked the Twitterverse to help her decide between Jamdani, Dupion, Kanjeevaram and Tussar. She said, “My #SareeSearch continues. Help me pick one to wear for #IndependenceDay by voting for your favorite. #WeWearCulture.” Almost 2000 Twitter users responded to her post to help her take the right call.
