Bright pinks, luscious peach and blush accents, and summery pastels defined Anushree Reddy’s princess bride collection, “The Royal Courtyard,” on Saturday, March 21st. Anushree Reddy’s collections have always sold well amongst fashionable Indian brides and guests – the girly colors and floaty fabrics make the outfits just as dreamy and fabulous as the perfect wedding imagined by young girls.
This year’s collection upheld the elegance and grandeur with lots of silk and sheer tulle and floaty georgette fabric on wedding lehengas and cholis, accented by embroidery and bright, magical colors.

Intricate zardosi work and beading added shimmering silver, gold, and crystal flair to voluminous skirts. In line with spring and summer concepts, floral motifs were common, as were the peach and caramel tones often associated with warm weather.
Songstress Kanika Kapoor glided down the runway in an Anushree Reddy original – she’s best known for singing the hit song, “Baby Doll.” This muted olive green choli is gorgeous and perfect for summer, outdoor wedding attire – despite not being a bright color.
The netting has enough depth on its own, but the unique knot at the top of the choli adds an extra dimension of glamour. I love the contrast of the floral print blouse as well, adding a very spring feature to the subtle outfit.
Of course, the dazzling colors soon followed – this coral orange and blush pink lehenga choli is the perfect outfit for a warm mehendi-sangeet night. The red orange skirt with bright pink borders is a bright, but contrasting combination – and just look at that flirty twirl!

The beautifully embroidered blouse is subtle but elegant, mostly due to its light color, which keeps the attention on the bright skirt.
Bollywood actress and showstopper Ileana D’Cruz brought her sweet smile to the runway in this happy pink choli ensemble. The skirt is patterned in a cute chevron print that plays off the contrast between bright, summery pink and its lighter hue.

It’s impressive how the beaded patterns on the bottom of the choli don’t clash with the bright colors – only a fashion mastermind like Anushree Reddy can toe the line between too many patterns in such a fabulous way The peach dupatta and neutral beaded blouse go really well with the choli: they’re in dulled tones to draw attention to the skirt, but the silvery beading ensures that they get their due attention as well.
