Varshita Thatavarthi, the 25-year-old Sabyasachi model has proved that body shape and skin color can be ruled out if you have the confidence to showcase what you have in an appropriate way. The dusky girl Varshita was often assessed on the basis of her body size and got rejected for five times due to her physique and skin tone. Today, she has set new beauty standards in the fashion world by modeling for one of the pioneers of Indian fashion, The Sabyasachi.

The new face of The Brand Sabyasachi

Recently, on the occasion of International Women’s Day, that world-class designer Sabyasachi posted a photograph of the curvy beauty Varshita as the model dressed in his royal bridal apparel. With the stunning picture, Sabya had posted a message of self-confidence. However, the social media post experienced severe criticism online and it was the model in the picture, who grabbed the netizen’s attention with her ever-so-stunning bridal avatar.

Born in Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh and brought up in Delhi, Varshita’s journey to success was not easy. The Sabyasachi model prefers to call herself an artist and traveler. She had also tried her luck in the South Indian film industry but had to face rejection there too.

Once criticized for her plus-size body, Varshita has now turned into an inspiration to all across the nation and beyond, who are not confident enough or feel ashamed and insecure for their body and skin tone.

Traditional is the New Sexyyy

It was undeniably inspiring and encouraging to watch a not-so-fair skin tone and not-a-slim frame on the fashion page, which has been majorly ruled by fair skin and size zero models for many years.

Know how to dress if you are Overweight?

Many obese women think that little to no clothing is available to fit their curves. As a result, they end up choosing the wrong outfit for their figure. So here are some tips and tricks which will prevent you from committing any more fashion faux pas.

Rule #1

Know what suits you best!

  1. It is always better to avoid horizontal stripes and disproportionate patterns. Such patterns highlight your body that you may be trying to hide. Therefore, solid colors are a much safer choice for a slimmer look.
  2. The safest and elegant color for your body type is black. In black color outfit, all look very slim and flattering. If you don’t like the black color then it is wise to stick to darker colors because brighter/lighter colors are less effective at camouflaging certain trouble areas.
  3. If you are fond of patterns, then go for vertical stripes that follow the body length and elongate it rather than cutting it off just like horizontal stripes /patterns.

Rule #2

Invest more in proper undergarments!

  1. According to a survey many women wear the incorrect bra size in which your upper body appears heavy. Therefore, chose a good store where you can find good professionals who can help you get the correct size and fitting.
  2. The next essential thing is wearing a proper shapewear under your outfit. This helps in camouflaging your extra flesh and makes you look slimmer and gives a better posture.

Rule #3

Flaunt Your Shape!

  1. It is advisable to avoid big fabrics and tent type dresses. It’s a very common perception that wearing oversized clothing covers the heavy body. But actually such outfits accentuate the features you are trying hard to hide. Therefore, always go for proper fitting and not oversized tops.
  2. While choosing bottom wear, make sure that it fits you well. Too big pants hide the shape of your lower body and make you look bulky. So, it is essential to get a nice pair of jeans that give you a perfect fitting. One of the best options is a boot-cut pant that is slightly wider at the bottom providing your hips and thighs a proportionate look.
  3. If you are fond of wearing skirts, then pencil skirts are a great choice. It highlights the natural curvature of your body. It helps your hips/thighs look more balanced like boot-cut jeans.
  4. If you want to wear a dress then always go for an A-line or Empire style dress. These styles accentuate your curvaceous body while camouflaging your tummy, thighs, or butt. The free-flowing lower half of the dress is much more flattering as compared to other fitted type outfits that display every bulge or imperfection of your body.
  5. Another option is a wrap dress, which is considered a universally flattering style for most body types.

Rule #4

Right accessories are necessary.

  1. If belts are your obsession, then always opt for a wide belt (not a skinny belt). It helps hide your tummy if that is a problem area for you.
  2. Beautiful and unusual accessories like large, bold jewelry are versatile and make others blind to judge a weight gain or loss.
  3. Similarly, a big or large size handbag bag helps you look smaller, as it does not look tiny next to you.

Rule #5

Flattering footwear is a must.

  1. In general, footwear that stops at your ankle or have ankle straps will make your legs look shorter and cut off the smooth lines of your body. Instead, go with some tall boots or ballet flats.
  2. And of course, heels make everyone’s legs look great.

Drawing inspiration from my first design collection – Kashgaar Bazaar- this collaboration explores the conflict between cultures, colours, textiles and crafts. Under the overarching theme of rustic baroque, the entire collection is a patchwork of different textile influences derived from the Silk Route. Strung together in an organic manner with beads, sequins, tinsel and silk thread. With a focus on resort and glamping, acid-burnt textiles, mirror-work, phulkari, zardosi, and inspirational techniques and motifs from Central Asian carpets constitute the foundation of the Christian Louboutin x Sabyasachi collaboration capsule, that has a potent tribal yet cosmopolitan energy.

  1. Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Kapoor’s eldest child, Riddhima Kapoor Sahni, who owns a jewelery brand ‘R jewellery’ has been accused of plagiarising a set of diamond and pearl earrings. After she launched her new festive collection, she got called out for plagiarising the design of the earrings.

An Instagram user page, Diet Sabya, an anonymous Instagram account dedicated to calling out the fakes and the rampant plagiarism in the industry, lashed out at the designer for copying the jewellery design of Kokichi Mikimoto!”

For those who are unaware, Mikimoto Kokichi (25 January 1858 – 21 September 1954) was a Japanese entrepreneur, who is credited with creating the first cultured pearl and subsequently starting the cultured pearl industry with the establishment of his luxury pearl company Mikimoto

Diet Sabya posted a picture of Riddhima’s design alongwith the original one. They wrote, “The legendary Kokichi Mikimoto is known in the pearl world as the ‘King of Pearls’. His ‘cultured pearls’ —patented in 1916 — is a benchmark for the industry at large. So, naturally ‘Jewellery designer of the year’, @riddhimakapoorsahniofficial couldn’t help herself from selling the iconic Mikimoto pearl and diamond earrings under her namesake label. If this is not #gutsontoast, we don’t know what is”

In response to the accusation, Riddhima issued an apology on her Instagram page for not tagging the original designer.

Her post read, “Dear Insta family, we at Riddhima Kapoor Sahani jewellery do not encourage plagiarism! We are extremely sorry fo not tagging the original designer for an inspirational post of diamond and pearl earrings by Mikimoto Kokichi- a legend with pearls! We respect the creativity of every designer and would not copy or disregard any of them. Thank you”
