SheFinds News: Sari, It's a dress code
January 22, 2007
And you thought the TomKat wedding was extreme! ShoppingBlog.com reports that supermodel/actress Elizabeth Hurley is taking the East-meets-West fashion trend to heart when she marries Indian textiles heir Arun Nayar in March. The coupleâ€™s six-day nuptial extravaganza will span from England to Mumbai to Rajasthan, and guests like Victoria and David Beckham and Sir Elton John have already received their â€œorientation packets,â€ instructing them on the weddingâ€™s dress code. Female guests will be required to wear pink saris (none to outshine Elizabethâ€™s reportedly $7,800 one, Iâ€™m sure), and men will be asked to wear orange turbans to complement the ladiesâ€™ pink. The festivities will include a mandatory cricket game for the gents and a traditional Mehndi ceremony in which the bride and her girlfriends will have their hands and feet painted with Henna. Got a steady hand or an artsy friend? Pick up a do-it-yourself Henna Kit and get to inking. Pay homage to the very picky bride, and choose Uzi Maccaiâ€™s pink-and-orange sari wrap skirt from eDressMe.com or a traditional orchid-colored sari from ExoticIndia.com. And if youâ€™re not quite ready to shell out like a supermodel, just content yourself with picturing a cricket match that pits Becks against Sir Elton, both in full Indian regalia.
