All eyes were on the stunning Divya Brown at the recent Spotlight Asia salute to the new Asia Society Texas Center, where she co-chaired the cocktail reception for 1,000 with her husband, Chris Brown.

For the celebration of the Museum District's newest neighbor, Divya chose a silk concept sari by Manish Malhotra, one of Bollywood's most popular designers. She explains that a "concept sari" is a modern, more manageable version of the traditional sari, the new design consisting of a skirt and a connected wrap. 

She selected the gown by Malhotra as a nod to her Indian heritage and explained, "I felt it was a perfect reflection of East meets West, which the new Asia Society Texas Center epitomizes."

Both the concept sari and her jeweled handbag were purchased in Mumbai. She accessorized with dazzling earrings and a lavish collection of gold and silver bangles that lined her arms from Charming Charlie's, sponsor of the evening.
