My Ethnic take on Aishwarya's Oscar de la Renta gown at Cannes 2015 !!

The lady still manages to look like a trillion bucks at 41 !! Agreed that it takes truckloads of money and an army of stylists to put it together, but an individual's attitude and poise is also pivotal. And all of us will readily vouch that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was only born with it.

For lesser mortals like us putting together something like it is akin to a dream. The lady's killing appearance inspired me to create a look that can be easily replicated by most Indian women. The average Indian woman would find it tough to carry off a gown like that. Even Aishwarya had some fitting issues in the underarm region if you look closely. So, I have picked up a lace saree in Burgundy and teamed it up with minimal jewelry. Have omitted the clutch as it has largely remained in the shadows this year !

My take on this outfit -

The saree is my own (it looks darker than it appears in the pics), earrings and finger ring from Jabong.com and the watch (a maverick touch) and bracelet are from mirraw.com . Entire look can be put together in less than Rs 15000 or still lesser if you swap the earrings which are in 18K gold !!

A closer look at the saree !! It goes will with a black halter neck blouse or a sheer /nude blouse with red sequins on it ...

Team this up with a nice brick red /burgundy lipstick. I would suggest a budget pick like Maybelline Color Sensational Moisture Extreme Lipstick in the shade Burgundy or a Coloressence Mesmerising Lip Color in the shade Brick Red !

How do you find the look ? Please share your feedback as this is the first time I am writing on fashion. Have wanted to do some articles on styling for a long time and the play of colors on the red carpet this year has been very inspiring. Lace, embroidery, frills, cutouts and an overall relaxed look has been the theme this year. Even the hair styles are so much more natural and care-free.
