Over the past month, using the hashtag #SareeSearch, Ms Carlson tweeted a series of photos and videos while out hunting for the perfect saree. When she finally narrowed down her selection to four sarees, she created a Twitter poll. Nearly 2,000 Twitter users voted to help her decide between Jamdani, Dupion, Kanjeevaram and Tussar. It's only fitting then that Ms Carlson wrapped up her #SareeSearch by tweeting a picture of herself wearing the winning saree this morning.
Posted less than an hour ago, Ms Carlson's picture has been retweeted over 150 times already. And people are thrilled with the final choice.
