Yes, it is Valentine’s Day. And as is expected,
there is a lot of love in the air what with red roses being sold off the racks,
teddy bears, chocolates, and engagement rings even! Clearly, it is a day to
cherish (even if we want to be cynical about it)!
And yeah, you are expected to wear red or the
many shades of the colour. You may choose not but… let’s not discount this
stunning colour. Red has always been a traditional colour; a strong colour indicative
of love, passion, lust, aggression, anger and even danger. It is also the go-to
colour for most brides. While as the quintessential millennial bride you may beg
to differ, red still is a very attractive colour and a must-have in a bride’s
trousseau if not chosen for her bridal ensemble. So, while I am at it, i.e.,
reiterating my point on the importance of colour red, this 14th
February, I would like you to take a look at these 8 stunning RED outfits by
ace designers Gaurav Gupta and Amit Aggarwal.
(Men don’t understand women, they say. Well,
for once, I’d say think again! These amazing outfits will make any woman weak
in her knees and hit the ‘purchase’ button. Let’s just say GG & AA know how
to bring out the sensual side in the ladies…)
Let’s start with Gaurav Gupta. Literally,
the man of the hour, he was recently awarded the designed of the decade award
by Vogue and we say, its well-deserved! Here are his stunning red ensembles:
1. Time to Spread your Wings, Ladies!
This stunning blooming draped red saree is MUST-have
for any millennial bride-to-be! Just image walking into your reception or
cocktail wearing this number? Not to miss the 3D floral applique work on the outfit!
2. The Scarlet Lady
Love showing off your collar bone? If yes, then
this red lehenga is a great option for you! Termed as the twinning blouse
paired with a panelled skirt and a classic GG ruffled dupatta, you’d be ready
to slay one and all!
3. The Red Sea Siren
If you are someone who prefers things to be
out-of-the-box, this deep red ruffled lehenga paired with a serpentine blouse

P.S. If a Slytherin bride had to pick red, this
would be it!
