Overall for me, this was by far THE BEST show i attended. EVER. Not just because the clothes were so my style (you know me- bridal obsessed) but because Sona Mohapatra just brought the house down! I did film a video so i will try and get that up, but she started singing Folk Songs, moved to Bollywood and ended with Ambersariya!
Entertainment aside- i loved how the collection actually flowed along- starting with whites, moving on to neons with minimal embroidery and then ending with heavily embroidered neons fit for a bride. Dont know about Jaipur, but this is definite one for the Pinterest Bridal Page to drool over later !

 Sona Mahapatra brought the house down !!!

Exaggerated double-winged eyeliner in a navy blue along with the super high conical topknot gave the models a futuristic, sci-fi feel which is kind of ironic since the show was Jaipur Bride, but it worked with all the clothes as a nice contrast! Matte peachy nude lipstick, peach blush and matte skin dominated the show!
