If there’s one thing we know about Anita Dongre, it’s that the designer has an international client list that reads like the who’s who of the beau monde. From names like Kate Middleton to Lupita Nyong’O, it feels like everyone who’s anyone has a had their moment in the sun with an Anita Dongre creation. New to the list is model Liya Kebede, who wore a Dongre lehenga to a wedding this past weekend.

Dressing for an Indian summer wedding can be tricky, with traditional Indian wear tending to veer on the heavier side of the spectrum, given that the Indian wedding season typically spans the length of winter. But Dongre knows that post-pandemic, there are few rules around weddings, and a summer wedding is now just as common as its winter counterpart. Enter the green lehenga that model Liya Kebede wore, which has intricate details on the skirt and dupatta. Banarsai, which is lightweight, manages to be fuss-free while also still lending the garment the kind of detailing that gives it both a luxe feel and a sense of occasion. Another thing to love about this outfit is the distinctly contemporary cut of the blouse, which champions a low-back with hanging ties, which give the look a breeziness not often associated with lehengas.
