Gauri & Nainika gowns celebrities love
S-curve gowns, flouncy skirts, floral details… ever since Gauri & Nainika hit the runway in 2005, they’ve been known for their flare for the feminine.
Crossing ten successful years at India’s fashion weeks this year, the designer duo’s fan base has grown by leaps and bounds over the span of their career. It’s not just a favourite in the country (Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone are loyalists), Gauri & Nainika’s designs have been spotted on international red carpets too, the latest being a sculpted black number worn by Entertainment Tonight host Nancy O’Dell at the Oscars.
Before O’Dell, American actors Allison Tolman and Gabrielle Union have worn the designers’ gowns too. The common thread between all the looks: a clean, old-world aesthetic that’s become a trademark of the label. These gowns belong to a special collection made specifically for red carpet appearances. You may rarely see these pieces on the runway, but when you spot one, you’ll know it’s a Gauri & Nainika instantly.
While the two were happy to see their creation flaunted at the Academy Awards, they didn’t know it was going to be worn until the last minute. “It’s super exciting!” they said.
