Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati is definitely the most awaited film of the year scheduled to release on 1st December. The film has hit headlines for a number of reasons but this time it is absolutely welcoming for the team.
The first song of Padmavati, ‘Ghoomar’is a folk number where Deepika Padukone is seen twirling in circles performing the traditional Rajasthani dance form, has already crossed 10 million views within 24 hours of its release. Choreographed by Kruti Mahesh Midya , the song is stunning in sets, costumes, appearance and more.
Since the wedding season is here, we’re helping give you goals from Deepika’s extravagant costume and heavy jewelry in the song.
The song is an instant inspiration for wedding planners and designers. Take hints from the exquisite ambience, the elegant costumes, the serene emotions and more.
Those ghagrasand odhnis, the golden jewelry, the booti work, etc. everything you need for an awe-striking wedding.
Here is a list of things we noted while decoding Deepika’s ‘Ghoomar’ look. Choose whatever gives you the ‘season-feels’ for the upcoming party in your circle:
1.Colour blocking: The trend of colour blocking or choosing opposite colours on the colour wheel to pair them together for complementary combinations are very much a loved fashion practice. But who thought this could be done so well in bridal lehenga blouses?
2.Gota work: Popularly used for edging sarees and odhnis in Rajasthan, gota work or gota-patti or gota kinari is used to create elaborate patterns. Metals like copper, gold, etc. are used to make designs on dress materials through the applique technique. Use this to border your dupatta or ghagra to add a Rajput touch to your wardrobe.
3.Embroideries: Embroideries have been a part and parcel of Indian wear. Available with a variety of thread or yarn colours, embroidery sometimes incorporates pearls, sequins, and beads too. In Deepika’s look, embroidery has been smartly used to create prints with the help of foil printing that gives it a brocade-like-appearance. Try it for your big day?
4.Metal threadwork: It is also known as goldwork. Gold-coated or polished materials like copper are bound as wires and used as threads to give surface embroidery to fabrics. Metal threadwork can clearly be seen in the blouse and ghagras of costumes in the song. If you’ve got a gang of your favourite girls, get their blouses identically designed to make them feel special on your wedding day!
5.Booti work: Booti work is famously done in ghagra cholis as intricate designs created with multicoloured cotton threads defining the ethinicity of the region it is produced in. This artwork is found in kurtis, churidars and other garments. If you’re gonna don a ‘traditional turban or ‘pagdi’, choose richly coloured fabric with booti work for your entire clan.
6.Polki jewelry: Polki jewelry, which is identical to Kundan is one of the best choices for party wear. Huge dangling earrings or as ‘kamar band’. team it up with your gorgeous wedding outfit and sizzle all the way.
7.Choker set: Chokers are back in fashion. Whether you’re dressing up for a friend’s sangeet or your own sister’s engagement, explore from a range of lace to stone chokers to add an imposing overtone to your personality.
8.Layered necklaces: Aiming for a sleek chic look or a rocking retro feel, layered necklaces can be creatively worn with any outfit. Want something new? If you’re planning on backless, beautifully decorate your naked back with a long layered necklace!
9.Matha pattis: One-sided or a kitschy wonder, matha pattis add a lot of sex appeal to your persona. Brides can choose from a range of gold, diamonds, or stone with heavily studded classic matha pattis to complete the look.
Don’t forget to notice the royal odhni drape in the song that’ll leave guests at your wedding completely mesmerized!
