Congratulations Hellishly Gothly, winner of the Bollywood Wedding Styling Challenge on August 14th. Helli wowed us with her traditional red and gold wedding dress paired with a mix of gold, red, blue and pink jewelry throughout. Her beautiful dark long hair is perfectly decorated with gold and red ornaments, and we loved her sparkling pink and blue eye makeup, pink nails and lipstick which added a nice contrast to the red in the dress. Her presentation was flawless as each pose highlighted every angle of her outfit. Well done, Helli.
As the winner of this month’s styling challenge, Helli will appear in our next promotional ad, be interviewed by our very own Chloe Electra for an upcoming feature in ModeLS Magazine, and of course have bragging rights for a month at Model’s Workshop. Thank you Chloe and BonieFacio Boucher of ModeLS Magazine for the generous prize!
Second place went to Flora Raven (floraniana) (left) who dawned a more daring interpretation of Bollywood Wedding. Flora’s look is a traditional Indian ghagra with very delicate Indian jardozi work. The detail on the border of her dress is a speciality in indian weddings. Flora used traditional Indian jewelery like nathini (nose ring), haath phool (hand jewelery), a payal (the feet jewelery), choodiya (bangles on both hands), bindi on her forehead and also a traditional Indian temporary tattoo made by plants mehndi on my hands. A beautiful Bollywood bride and very nice presentation. Great job, Flora.
Third place went to Precise Frimon (right) who was inspired by the sensuality that emanates the hindu woman style, but at the same time remaining demure and mysterious. “He sought harmony between clothing and giving it a mysterious face in the eyes of the maid, who looks forward to her wedding.” explains, Precise. “The crown representing royal head gives a touch of the bride in all its glory, and the full skirt and a blouse covers the charms that await my future husband.” Lovely story, Precise, and wonderful presentation of your interpretation of Bollywood Wedding. Nice work.
Once again, thank you to our guests who came out to support Model’s Workshop and the models. Check back soon for details about next month’s Styling Challenge.
