I’ve wanted to do an Indian-inspired look for a long time now. Growing up in Trinidad & Tobago, I was accustomed celebrating customs and religious beliefs of the different ethnic groups. Trinis would not bat an eyelid at attending Eid events or going over by your neighbor to parang dey house for Christmas. We have accepted and celebrated each others cultures and food, becoming a very multi-ethnic society.
I bought the November 2010 Vogue India issue with Priyanka Chopra on the cover and fell in love with this look!
As a matter of fact, I fell in love with the entire Sari issue. Such vivid colours and opulence!!! Something that I don’t usually see reading US magazines. I occasionally will buy an international magazine for a different kind of inspiration. In this issue, for the traditional Hindu ceremony, the bride wore a stunning ruby red and gold sari paired with smokey red and black eye makeup with deep red lips!! This look will also be great for a Divali celebration, lighting deyas and eating your favourite mithai.
Here’s my version.
