Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas’s gorgeous new engagement photos are out, and we couldn’t help but be instantly drawn to the soon-to-be-married couple’s choice of festive Indian wear for their daytime roka ceremony and puja on Saturday. Take a closer look at Priyanka and Nick’s understated, romantic and comfortable ensembles:

Priyanka’s vibrant lemon yellow engagement anarkali embellished with beads and embroidery comes from designer label Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla, and was accessorised perfectly with her huge, sparkly engagement ring. ICYMI, yellow is Bollywood’s favourite colour right now. Priyanka accessorised the outfit with shoulder-grazing earrings, and opted for voluminous waves and subtle smoky eyes.  

We love that Priyanka took advantage of the festive occasion to show off Indian ethnic wear, but Nick’s choice of clothing — a crisp ivory long-sleeved kurta pyjama — also shows how respectful he is to Indian culture. It’s safe to say that Nick’s easy-going attitude is indicative of his comfort with Priyanka.

Priyanka and Nick’s fashion-forward choice has us falling that much more in love with the two of them as a couple, but we can’t help but wonder — is Priyanka’s designer choice for her engagement a hint at who will work with her on her wedding-day ensemble? While we aren’t sure in our suspicions as of yet, this unique choice for his engagement has us speculating: Will Nick wear a traditional Indian sherwani for his imminent wedding with Priyanka?
