Athiya's haldi look in vintage Anarkali suit
For her haldi ceremony, the actress chose to wear an ivory-hued gorgeous anarkali by Ritu Kumar. Her cotton anarkali has intricate handmade gold gota work all over the suit and features heavy gota embroidered over the neck and borders which added an oomph factor to her look and gives her outfit a royal vibe. She paired her anarkali suit with a garara and dupatta in similar colour and gota embroidery.
Her pure cotton garment with intricate hand embroidery took nearly 2000 man hours and was done by using the age-old technique of crumpling and folding the Gota by hand to create these mango motifs. Gokhru gota, which are ribbons with metal strip wefts and fibre warps that are pinched at regular intervals to give a certain aesthetic, hasbeen used extensively throughout her attire.
Athiya embodied the "less is more" fashion trend while styling her haldi look with a touch of old-world elegance. Assisted by make-up artist, Simran Gidwani, Athiya picked blush pink eyeshadow, nude pink lips and eyelids lined with kohl for the glam picks. Assisted by hairstylist Reena Dutta, Athiya kept her hair open in a half updo hairstyle and adorned it with jasmine flowers. She accessorised her look with mangtika, statement earrings and golden jutis which perfectly rounded off her look.
