Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is the Goddess of beauty. She is as perfect as an achiever in everything she does. From being Miss World to a Bollywood actress, to being a part of Hollywood industry and a doting Mother of Aaradhya, she excels in everything. And if we talking about her wedding, can we ever forget how beautiful she looked on her D-Day?
Although, she gives meaning to perfection every time she steps out, but her wedding is something we can talk about a zillion times. In a recent interview with the Harper’s Bazaar Bride, she revealed all that a bride needs to look her best on her Big-Day.
Who are the go-to designers for a bride-to-be? For ensembles that are eternally Indian, timeless, and enriched with our weavers, heritage, go to Sabyasachi. For those looking for intricate detailing and immense luxury and drama, opt for Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla. Brides who are inspired by cinema and a celebration of colors, need only to take a look at Manish Malhotra. If traditional research is what you lean towards, Ritu Kumar is the one to go to.
How should brides invest in jewelry? Choose the jewelry as per your aesthetics, budget, and desire. It's always meaningful and significant to include a piece that will complete the truly 'personal' experience. A family heirloom or a first-ever in your life would make the moment memorable. A classic Longines watch is a must.
What about wellness? I swear by aromatherapy. Spa treatments with aromatic oils like sandalwood, are great for soothing your skin; chamomile or lavender is great to relive stress, anxiety, and insomnia; eucalyptus or lemon grass keep infections at bay; and rosemary endows one with calm and clarity.
Any advice on makeup? Marriage is a very emotional experience; so waterproof mascara and liner is a good idea. Make-up must enhance you, not shroud you. Keep it fresh to reflect your enthusiasm and energy.
Any home-made secrets one could look to for radiant skin? A pack with besan, cream, and turmeric, a massage with honey and curd, a banana face mask, and milk and almond oil face packs are a few full-proof concoctions.
How should one care for their hair? With almond or coconut oil massages, egg and olive hair packs, milk and honey hydrating masks, mayo and avocado moisturizing packs, and of course, L'Oreal serums, and Kerastase spa treatments.
Any finishing touches? Incorporate mogra in your look. They always evoke that 'something special' feel in both the personal and traditional context.
