Fergie, who was married to Prince Andrew from 1986 and 1996, is no stranger to the red carpet and has been spotted rubbing shoulders with celebrities at a number of high-profile events in recent months.
Last week she joined her eldest daughter, Princess Beatrice, 28 for a glittering charity gala in aid of the Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation in New York.
Sarah, who is also mother to Eugenie, 26, is also a regular at Loulou’s in Mayfair.
VIP guest: The so-called ‘Oscars of the Curry Industry’ typically features a star-studded guest list, and last year’s event included a string of MPs as well as actors
This year, judges said they received around 218,000 public nominations via post, app and online, from diners putting forward their favourite curry restaurants.
Guests included by Dancing on Ice star Frankie Poultney and Arsenal legend David Seaman, as well as Karthik Nagesan who was recently booted off The Apprentice.
Fergie is just the latest high-profile figure to don a sari, with Prime Minister Theresa May going barefoot during a recent visit to Sri Someshwara Temple in Bangalore, while Samantha Cameron donned the garment on several occasions as first lady.
She recently revealed that she and Prince Andrew have ‘never really left each other’, during an interview on Australian radio.

The mother-of-two made the comments on the hosts Kyle and Jackie O show when the former asked if they would ever reunite.
‘Do you think you and Andrew will get back together lilke the world wants Kourtney Kartdashian and Scott Disick to get back together?’ he asked. ‘Just, enough’s enough. Just bite the bullet and sort it out.’
Fergie enigmatically replied: ‘I always think, “have we really?”. We’re divorced to each other right now. We’ve never really left each other.’
