Ravished, in America, by India

It's not really about saris per se though, is it? It's Indian women wearing saris. It doesn't translate to Americans. Actually, it's not that much of a stretch to imagine that saris might become trendy for NY hipsters. After all, that's what happened to keffiyehs. But if that happened, you'd find something wrong with it. It wouldn't translate, because the a priori notion about Americans as bad dressers would prevail. It's a red herring to think it's about women wearing more colour or something.
