Well not Indian Bride Barbie so much as their November cover girl, but that’s totes what she reminds ME of (thanks, cookiemonsta):
Former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham graces the cover of Vogue Indiaâ€™s November issue, trading in her western outfits for a traditional Indian bridal sari.
â€œPoshâ€ Beckham, the wife of British footballer David Beckham, chose several bridal outfits by Indian designers for the photo shoot, the magazine said in a statement. [linky]
She was also not overheard saying, “Can we hike these up a bit? I need people to see that I have replaced my seven-inch Loubys with swaggers. Aren’t they MAJOR?“
â€œI have long been an avid admirer of the Indian fashion and lifestyle culture,â€ Beckham, 34, was quoted as saying. [linky]
She then stared dreamily off in to space for a second while fondly remembering that one time, with that proto-chav who made it rain with rupees at Glassy Junction. Ah, good times.
The magazineâ€™s fashion director said Beckham was thrilled to experiment with Indian bridal wear.
â€œShe absolutely loved everything about it — from the â€˜maang tikkaâ€™ and â€˜haath zebâ€™ (traditional Indian jewellery) to the gorgeous lehengas (traditional Indian skirt with embroidery),” said Anahita Shroff Adajania. [linky]
What fool wouldn’t? Indian brides get to wear the most gorgeous clothes in the world. I love Reem Acra but even her most show-stopping gowns fade away in the presence of Priya and Chintan’s most basic lehenga.
The cover is after the jump.
