15 Styles To Get Deepika Padukone’s Romantic Regal Look In Bajirao Mastani
If you happened to read our blog post yesterday, you might have got the idea that we are in a period fashion state of mind right now. And we have good reason! When it comes to traditional sartorial options, we often find ourselves seriously shortchanged, after all how many times and how many ways can we reinvent the same old anarkalis, draped saris and lehengas. So when we found ourselves in possession a whole new vista of ethnic styling, it had us go hallelujah!
And no prizes for guessing what we are talking about, the title image and caption of this post must have wisened you up to the fact already that the reason behind this new found excitement for old world regal fashion is the soon to be released epic drama, Bajirao Mastani. If you have been following the fashion news, which quite surely you sartorialists are (!), you would know that the mastermind behind the exquisite peshwa and mughal period inspired costumes is none other than the celebrated veteran designer Anju Modi. And what especially stood out for us was the exquisite Persian inspired costumes designed for the titular character, Mastani, a woman of many attributes and facets from horse riding and spear throwing to an exquisite danseuse and songstress, a historical representation of the woman of today.
What, however, you might not know, is that the designer is releasing this one of a kind period collection exclusively, wait for it….with us!!
So when we sat down to pen our post for the day, we could not stop getting back to the period fashion vibe that has been lingering in our minds. We thought, wouldn’t it be nice to put together a style guide for a period dressing meets contemporary aesthetic that will have you standout with a truly innovative ethnic statement this wedding season. Not sure what we are talking about? Here is what we had in mind:
