We’re used to seeing Turkey, Egypt, and a series of exotic locations when it comes to Bollywood song sequences and it never fails to hit us right in the feels. But this time, ELLE India transported us to the beautiful historical sites of Turkey and we can’t stop dreaming. They’ve got a sensational spread featuring Nargis Fakhri shot by Suresh Natrajan that’s making us dream.
No, really, though… if my dreams were to come true, this is kind of what they would look like. The shoot has been styled by Malini Banerji, fashion director at ELLE India, which is why we’re stalking her gorgeous Instagram. Makeup is by the famed Jabe Vincent. Of course, Nargis is wearing the best of Indian couture from this year. Here’s she’s wearing Varun Bahl and the same in the image above. Her hand chains are by Suneet Varma for Swarovski.
Here, she’s wearing a breathtaking Rohit Bal outfit and jacket.
And finally, there’s this gorgeous silhouette against the sunlight! The gown is Manav Gangwani couture.
And then, boom! Look at that. The outfit and the headgear are by Suneet Varma.
The feline makeup, poses, and the feathers add a tribal touch to the shoot. ELLE India is calling her the warrior princess and we think it’s quite apt! What about you? For the entire shoot, you’ll have to pick up this months’ copy of ELLE India!
