Raima Sen in a bunch of festive looks
Harmless pranks and naughty smiles. There’s never a dull moment with Raima Sen around. From the moment she got into the car for this shoot, till pack-up, Raima was the usual riot. With JW Marriott Kolkata as the perfect backdrop, she got into a few Puja looks, just for The Telegraph
Red and Pujas are like bffs. They complement each other to the T. Raima looked festive fresh in this Ritu Kumar ensemble. The earthy tones and patterns make a good team and jewellery by Bedika & Richa complete the look.
The fuchsia pink blouse from V-Cut and handwoven kadhua meenakari Benarasi from Coloroso are all about happy and rich hues. We tried a playful skirt drape for a statement look. The jewellery from Bedika & Richa add the right amount of celebratory daytime oomph.
Raima looks evening glam in this handwoven tanchoi from Coloroso. The blouse from V-Cut and stacks of silver jewellery from Dazzling Danglers put the finishing touches. The small black bindi and that Raima Sen smile does the rest of the magic.
Simple and stunning. That is Raima Sen in this gorgeous Swati & Sunaina “handwoven 40-kali lehnga” with “small bootis densely woven in zari and resham”. How lovely are the Vasundhara Mantri earrings and ring! Just what you need for a minimal yet maximal effect. The small red dot lends a certain youthfulness to the look
"Normally the Pujas are very busy… we are running from pandal to pandal. I am happy because I don’t get to go to those areas. This time of course there won’t be too much happening.When we were kids, we would go to friends’ places in saris. Mummy (Moon Moon Sen) used to always do Puja shopping and even now. We leave it to her. She will buy the jewellery and saris."
"Everyone says I look good in a sari. I wear saris for events and functions. It is a headache for me. I prefer wearing light suits with lehnga or palazzos. For me, comfort is most important", says Raima Sen
