This Shantanu and Nikhil emerald-green gown for a cocktail party dresses up their perfect bride for this season. Green complements the Indian skin tone, while its intricate embellishments and tonality make a strong statement of style.

How you can work it
A gown like this works best on tall, thin women, says Rishi Raj. So if you are a voluptuous, petite woman, but you still want to wear it, make sure you allow some breathing space (literally!) with a deeper neckline that allows you to breathe. “Stilettos are a bad idea,” says Raj. “Wedges provide support and height for occasions like these.”

Makeup to go
Vidya Tikari suggests a moss green winged liner with peach on the apples of your cheeks and dark maroon matte lips – a very Victorian look.
