Lehengas have been given a whole new dimension by the country's top fashion designers and the Bollywood bandwagon hasn't missed out on all the flair and show. Look at this spectacular Chiffon Lehenga in Orange and Pink made famous by Bollywood diva and former Miss Asia Pacific-turned-actress, Diya Mirza, who is seen carrying this off with élan at some celebrity dazzle.
Now, this amazing ensemble can be a part of your wardrobe too! Thanks to the onslaught of replica fashion which is the new talk of the town for all the shopaholic, fashion frenzied crowd out there.
This orange and pink creation is entirely made on chiffon which is lightweight. Chiffon sarees and dresses have caught the fancies of Indian women since they saw the earliest Bollywood actresses float around in them like angels wooing their male co-stars and coaxing them to express their deepest desires. Chiffon is created from a careful combination of cotton and silk. Sometimes, silk is also replaced with synthetic fibres which bring down the cost of the dress. In this Chiffon dress, we see Diya Mirza looking almost angelic with that soft and elegant look.
Pallu and Skirt
There is abundant usage of pink on the skirt with orange finding a place of pride on the pallu. The skirt gets a heavily embellished border and intricate floral work on the body done with golden thread looking almost like raindrops as they wave and fall on the wearer. The pallu is a simple orange creation with smaller floral motifs in golden equalized well with heavy zari work on the violet border.
Now, there's a catch. The soft orange and pink shades have been given a dramatic touch with this zari border which again has a separate entity of its own. Look at the careful and simultaneous use of red fabric and golden zari work which covers most of the Pallu, leaving the side which is tucked inside the skirt. The upper side of the pallu has been kept simple and sober in contrast with just a red and golden border.
This is what you need to notice. To keep play of contrasts alive, the blouse becomes multi toned as well! While the bustier is pink with golden zari, the shoulders are red with pink piping to add a sense of continuity. Now sleeves have to carry off the rest of the feeling. So we get a combination in this order - red, golden border, pink, golden border with violet border. It's a short sleeved upper wear with just the right look and shades supporting the elegance of the orange pallu and pink full skirt.
