When celebrities talk, thousands of admirers echo their word. They have the power to mesmerize the people around them with the way they stylize their outfits as they know what is making rounds in the fashion mill. Every woman aspires to look like the celebrity she idolises. Keeping tabs on what is currently being appreciated becomes easier, not to mention the confidence that generates in a woman when she looks beautiful.
While we often see our Indian actresses in western ensembles, they have a penchant for traditional attires as well/too. From Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in Cannes film festival to Deepika Padukone for movie promotions, they all carry it with a grace that knocks everyone out. Sarees, lehenga-cholis have been a part of India’s fashion history and haven’t withered a bit with age. Over the years they have evolved according to the time period. Of course, these outfits would be missing their souls without the beautiful traditional accessories. Stunning mathapattis, extravagant earrings, elaborate necklace sets and many more kinds of jewelleries that flatter the traditional outfits have been here for aeons.
Nose rings, have for long, symbolized the mannerisms of Indian culture and have stayed strong in the fashion fort where a number of trends have come and gone. Celebrities from all the eras have worn them and showcased it, blending it with their own sense of style.
Now in 21st century, a trend of conglomerating the same old jewellery with a new idea giving it a different dimension, has started. Designers have come up with edgy ear cuffs that many of our Indian actresses have been seen sporting. They have been introduced in the traditional world and Bollywood actresses like Jacqueline Fernandez have presented these age old adornments in an incredible way. The best way to carry off an ear cuff is with minimalistic makeup and zero accessories that gives the cuff all the attention it deserves.
Another wave that has hit the shore hard is that of the extravagant Hand Harnesses, fondly known as ‘Haath Phools’, that previously were worn mostly by Indian brides. But in this age, designers have pushed the envelope, taking the jewel on another level. We see celebrities all over the world using it to augment their red carpet looks.
Many of us have this perception about traditional jewelleries that they can be worn only with Indian wear, but our ladies from the film industry have proven us wrong by teaming them with western outfits and the result just blows your mind away. It in fact gives you the ultimate glam look. It is the age of blending and constant change in the world of fashion and in order to make sure you aren’t left behind the best thing to do is to follow the torchbearers.
