The Celebrity Walk -ultimate guide to a celebrity’s traditional style

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.

Blog 3While 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.

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.

Bangles – An Identification of Indian Women

Kundan- Ancient charm for the modern woman

Indians have been using jewellery for embellishment since centuries. The significance of jewellery in the country is palpable from the fact that on many auspicious occasions, jewellery forms a part of gifts.

IMG_2956

Kundan is one of the oldest forms of jewellery making originated and practiced in India.

Historically speaking, the tradition of Kundan work has been in practice in the states of Rajasthan and Gujarat since the Mughal era. Today, it is known world over and Rajasthan is considered to be the centre for the best kundankari workmanship.The technique started as a result of artisans trying to place uncut stones in the jewellery.

Kundan work is method of gem setting. A fine hand beaten sheet of pure gold was hammered together in form of cups or holders to hold the uncut stones. Each ‘cup’ was filled with natural glue called ‘lac‘. The stone was then ‘pressed’ in the lac and the edges of the cup were gently pressed to secure the stone in place. Once the lac dried up, it would harden thus holding the stone in place.

Play with tradition or play by the ear. The love of fashionistas and celebrities alike, Ear Cuffs have made their mark in social gatherings and international runways. Contemporary ear accessory, the Ear Cuff is quite a statement for occasions that demand a neo-experimental look as against conventional earrings that sit pretty on the ear lobe.

Indian culture has brought beautiful modernized and ornate Ear Cuffs that have become a legacy. Whether it is the ear-hugging elongated earrings hanging from the lobe to the helix or dainty hoops, Ear Cuff has emerged as the ‘it’ jewellery since the times of Hollywood celeb Elizabeth Taylor. With Bollywood fast catching up on this riveting look, made all the more ‘bold’ by actor Vidya Balan in one of her fashion show appearances, there can never be an end to this fascinating and loved ‘all ears’ tradition.

There is an air of elegance in this on-trend ornament. Sometimes yellow gold and diamonds are crafted to perfection and sometimes imitation jewellery delivers more as a fashion-have in Ear Cuffs.
