A Sri Lankan artist has created a saree-clad doll inspired by India’s Adline Castelino, the third runner-up at Miss Universe 2020. The Sri-Lankan artist posted the image of the saree-clad doll on Instagram in the hope that she would notice it – which she did. Adline Castelino shared the artist’s creation from her own Instagram handle.


The doll’s outfit was inspired by Adline’s outfit for the ‘National Costume’ round at the competition, where she wore a handwoven pink saree, inspired by the national flower lotus. The saree was designed by Hyderabad-based Shravan Kummar.

Nigeshan, Sri Lankan artist in the caption wrote, “Doll inspired by Miss Universe 2020 3rd runner up @adline_castelinofficial. Congratulations! Love from Sri Lanka. I hope she will notice it.”

Further added, “The costume embodies the true essence of a Woman. The saree is a traditional attire binds the whole country together. The beautiful colour inspired by the National flower of India.”


Adline shared the creation on her Instagram stories.

It is noteworthy that the artist has made several celebrity-inspired dolls.

Have a look.
