The minute I saw it at the Lakme show I knew I wanted to wear it! It had the right amount of sparkle and a timeless appeal – and so much movement which I loved. It was glamorous but without being OTT and so effortless to wear. The icy blue gray was a unique colour for a lehenga but still stood out beautifully.
11) HOW CAN BRIDES STYLE THEMSELVES DIFFERENTLY THIS WEDDING SEASON?
Try head to toe in one tone including jewelry. Don’t shy away from your traditional roots – embrace those weaves and your family heirlooms. Mix vintage pieces with pieces from today to create a unique look for you. Experiment with the blouse – go for corsets, bustiers or wrap blouse styles. Mix and match different jewelry influences – temple + polki.
