Florals for spring/summer may not be groundbreaking. But wear it in the monsoon season, and you will truly stand out. From paisleys to peonies, pleasant blooms will brighten up the gloom that’s often associated with rainy days and will also add a sense of playfulness to any wedding look. Think floaty kurtas, romantic chiffons saris or pretty lehengas à la Ananya Panday. Most recently, the young actor opted for a gorgeous Torani lehenga for Umang Police Awards 2022, which brimmed with A-listers such as Shah Rukh Khan, Anil Kapoor, Neha Dhupia, and Kartik Aaryan, among others. If you’re someone who likes to prioritise comfort, while making a style statement, Ananya Panday’s lehenga is one you need to take a closer look at. Ahead, Karan Torani shares exclusive details about her powder blue look with Vogue.

Did you notice Ananya Panday’s bralette blouse? 

“Ananya is wearing a powder blue lehenga from our ‘Chaap Tilak’ line, which is inspired by the spirited tales of Krishna’s Raasleela. This all-new range is a pendulum between a quaint palette of colour, florals, embroideries, and textured fabrics. The fabric used to craft Ananya’s garment is mostly handwoven Chanderi, and pure organza silk with hints of Bhagalpuri. The print on the lehenga is ‘cheent’ or chintz—a Torani constant since our very first collection. Like any other classic Torani look, this lehenga isn’t a fussy performance. And even though Ananya wore this garment which has stories of Indian craft painted all over it, she made it fun, fuss-free and sexy,” reveals Karan Torani. We love how the painterly flowers on the skirt are contrasted with chevron patterns on the strappy blouse.

Ananya Panday rounded off the look with silver earrings by Sangeeta Boochra. If you’d rather amp it up, add a choker and a stack of bangles. Makeup-wise, she didn’t go overboard either—a dewy base, pink gloss and a micro bindi were the finishing touches for Panday. Effortless and functional, the silhouette, like Panday’s, easily fits the bill for every festive occasion. The breathable fabric is also the perfect counter to the humidity that comes along with the monsoon. “The look would be perfect for a bridesmaid going for a friend’s mehandi brunch, ready to get her foot loose and dancing the day long in a garment as light as summer’s first breeze,” suggests Karan Torani.
