The Style of the Subcontinent

A look at Desi Style

Indira Gandhi


Not that I am a fan of her political legacy, which is both amazing and awful but this pair of photographs of a smiling young Indira Gandhi visiting the US with her father has me charmed. Love the simplicity of her style.


If I were eloping today I would


keep things simple with a litte bit of eyeliner and a soft lip, and then pray  I look as good as Lakshmi Menon, wear this Anthropologie dress, accessorize with these glittery J. Crew sandals, with Amrita Singh earrings handed down (in this hypothetical scenario) by my grandmother and carry a lovely red bouquet.
