Miss World Manushi Chillar became an overnight sensation when she bagged the crown and title for India after 17 years. This was just the beginning as the dimpled beauty effortlessly took control over all her duties that came with the crown and she continues to do so with style and panache. She wore this look to an event that made her the brand ambassador for a gold and diamond jewellery brand. Twenty-one-year-old Manushi wore Anita Dongre to grace this occasion and we were very excited to see that she wore a summery and traditional attire. It is difficult to wear heavy traditional wear in the summer; therefore this outfit was definitely on the mark.
This Chanderi lehenga is called the Dhruvi lehenga and retails for INR 1, 62,000 embroidered with beautiful flowery motifs, reminding us of lush gardens and flowing silhouettes. It also has gota patti, zardozi, resham and sequin work. This is the perfect outfit for a summer wedding where one can move easily without any restrictions. Add traditional chandbalis and plain juttis to style this differently or wear it like Manushi with a complimentary diamond and pearl necklace and earrings.
This diva is not only a style icon but has her name associated with many humanitarian endeavours one of which is a project called ‘Shakti’ where she educates women and girls about menstrual hygiene. She is also a trained Kuchipudi dancer and a painter; she aspires to become a cardiac surgeon as she hails from a family of doctors in Haryana. She is a true example of beauty with brains.
