These celeb looks will inspire you to wear the good ol’ gajra

Gajras were a staple way to accessorise during the yesteryears. They made an important part of our mothers and grandmothers’ look and an easy way to differentiate between a festive or every day look. Not only did they act as a beautiful addition to an ensemble, they also made the look, fragrant! Gajras were the ultimate way to glam up an ensemble. No wonder our mothers and grandmothers scouted all around to find the right kind. But as time passed, gajras became passé and less cool. However, much like other trends in the world, gajras have now made momentous comeback. Don’t believe us? Here are some celeb looks as proof!

The new-age diva was spotted donning a traditional look with the on-going festive season. But the actor managed to weave in her signature modern style along with the desi-ness. For Ganesh Chaturti, the actress donned a gold polka dot saree and blouse. She wrapped her hair up in messy bun and wrapped in it a mogra gajra giving the otherwise western updo an Indian twist.

The original Marathi Mulgi went all out to channel her Marathi swag during the Ganesh Festival. The actress donned a fresh, matte makeup look that featured a nude lip, bold brows and fluttering lashes. Her hair were tied together in a jooda and then wrapped with a double layer of gajra.

Taapsee Pannu has been embracing the nine yards more than a few times lately. So wrapping her amboda with a gajra seemed like the perfect next step. We love that Taapsee chose a big red bindi and nude toned makeup, allowing the gajra to take the lead.

Karisma Kapoor

Karisma Kapoor finds a way to bring her signature chic but elegant personal style in everything she wears – modern western or yesteryear traditional. The actress chose a modest blouse also with a saree if the same tone. Her accessories were simple and minimal too – a pair of jhumkas and gajras .
