Actress, and real life royal, Aditi Rao Hydari's recent magazine shoot for the Khush Wedding Magazine had such a gorgeous 'je ne sais quoi' quality to it, that it is difficult to forget, or to easily get over.
Aditi Rao Hydari brought impeccable charm and grace, even on the widely-followed Sabyasachi page, where we are used to seeing women from all over the world regularly being dressed like royals.
Hydari exudes an effortless air of "being." The clothes sit on her, and in return, she dignifies the clothes by pulling up the purest parts of her spirit and surfacing them with strength, fearlessness and vulnerability; all with a heady combination of grace, poise, and soulful eyes. She quietly, and powerfully, disarms with her presence, which is why she is more than just a regular model, performing artist, or a woman of beauty.
It is hard to think of someone other than Hydari pulling it off with such incredible elan.
Shot for the UK-based Khush Wedding Magazine, the shoot featured Hydari in @sabyasachiofficial clothes and @sabyasachijewelry at the iconic @tajfalaknuma palace. The photos were captured beautifully by ace artist @farhanhussain of @featartists with thoughtful and impeccable styling from @vikas_r and @tanishqmalhotraa
We spotted a range of seven ethnic looks: from contemporary looking florals to organza chunnis; from a dusty, golden kurta with churidaar to a classic red lehenga. In all, we saw a beautiful, all-encompassing range from the Sabyasachi collection; touching upon the heavy as well as the light and new.
Congratulations to the team at Sabyasachi and Khush Magazine, including Chief Editor Sonia Ullah, for this gorgeous spread last month.
And thank you to Aditi Rao Hydari for bringing the light that she brings to every work of art. It is a rare gift to be able to wear the finest clothes of Sabyasachi under the creative direction of a stellar magazine, and to somehow elevate the collaborative art to a new height with sheer presence.
