The Lookbook: Ethnic Engagement Shoot

(0) Comments

Brides to be can draw from Trisha’s quintessential ethnic look from Vinnaythandi Varuvaya (VTV).  Most people frown upon silk and cotton sarees (while I absolutely lub them!), reserving it for our moms and grandma but Trisha’s looks in VTV completely change the way it’s presented and deservingly so!

The cotton sarees are presented in modern, sleek designs and colours.  They're paired up with understated jewellery, hair, and makeup. Nothing is overdone. The end result is simply sexy, even said by Trisha herself in many of her interviews.

Get the look!


A replica of Trisha’s saree can be ordered through ModernRani (on Facebook).  The saree is a pure silk cotton with rich vibrant colours.  The fabrics are so breathable and light, it’s a nice alternative to your mother’s heavy kanjivaram sarees.  Make sure to wear it with the pallu hanging – pleating is a no no!


Trisha pairs it off with extra large temple earrings.  South Indian temple jewellery can pretty much go with any outfit, but it goes particularly well with this outfit, complementing the dark maroon and green in the saree.  The kemp necklace set with large earrings can be ordered through ModernRani (on Facebook).


The makeup throughout the whole movie was very minimal.  She showcases a clean face with dark khol eyeliner and light mascara.  Lips are lightly coated with clear gloss or a neutral colour.  Hit up your nearest Sephora and buy yourself a khol eyeliner to have as one of your staples.  There is a number of long wearing and highly pigmented brands, such as Makeup Forever.  But the waterproof khol eyeliner from the Sephora Collection does an equally good job at half the price.


Everything in the look is very summer, flowy, and wavy.  Complete Trisha’s look by lightly curling the ends of your hair.  Try not to wear your hair pin straight, add some waves or curls!  If your hair is naturally curly, then flaunt what nature has given you!
