Shaadi Fashion: Deepika Padukone's Modern Royalty Style

Shiralie Chaturvedi

Deepika Padukone is resilient, elegant, and dignified. Not just in her demeanour but also in her fashion -the outfits are a mix of regal, subdued, traditional, elaborate, and all over stunning. And we think there is no one superior than her in making even the most plain outfit look thoroughly royal. Plus for the wedding season, there is no one who can be of better inspiration than her!


1. Sarees may not be the ideal outfit for mehendi, but that's also because we tend to look at sarees as something over the top and embellished. However this gorgeous saree with fall motif and breathable colours with a puffed blouse are such a perfect choice for a day time mehendi!


2. However, if you do plan on sticking to the basics of a fitted suit -think again of how you want it to be! Padukone's retro style of a fitted suit with churidaar and statement chandbalis are vintage and traditionally quirky for mehendi!

Sangeet / Cocktail

1. There are rarely sarees that can amp up the Avant Garde and the sensuous appeal quite this well. Plus the silhouette is so refreshing; it is perfect for a cocktail party. With the veneer akin to something modern, the drape and the embellishment is adequately traditional.


2. There is something fanciful in a cocktail or a sangeet party that is romantic and the white frilly saree does proper justice to that theme. Add to that all the delicate baubles and it is an ensemble to reckon with!

3. The kimono jacket actually adds the traditional bit to this perfect outfit for a night long of dancing and merriment! The silhouette is flirty, the colours are muted enough for the pretty embroidery and we totally love the outfit!


4. We agree that this outfit can close in on to be wedding appropriate attire, but the silhouette of the outfit deserves for it to be danced around in it. The colour is beautifully in tune with celebratory hues, and the belt adds that kitschy twist we are assured makes for the outfit to be much better!



1. We don't want to lie, but you might just steal the baton from the bride with this one. The red saree is so stunning, and so royal that one can't simply dress it without turning one too many heads.


2. And if you are attending a day wedding, nothing spells elegance than these tones, and this fabric perfectly complementing the ponytail and minimal jewellery!




1. Green is a refreshing colour for more than one reason; one being that it is hardly reserved for functions other than mehendi, and secondly that it offers a variety of hues within that one colour. The saree is both vintage and modern because of the accessorizing accents in it, and what isn't to love about that.


2. And finally, for when you want to go light on the ensemble! All you got to do is wear something embellished, something golden, something layered! Deepika's outfit is beautiful and understated, but still extremely regal!
