Mehendi: Ruby anarkali

For my cousin’s mehendi I wanted to wear something that’s dressy but allows for a lot of movement, and this anarkali was perfect for that. I love the contrast between the black velvet and the red georgette, and chose to accentuate the antique gold embroidery in the outfit by wearing Indian jewellery in the same shade. Whilst I really like the long length of the dress, I didn’t want to look swamped by the swathes of fabric; I wore a pair of large high heels to elongate my silhouette.

I carried the golden tones in my outfit through my makeup with a mid-toned golden smoky eye and gold highlighter. I finished the look with a red lip.
