Ushoshi Sengupta and Richa Sharma have a lot in common. Richa is the former Mrs Universe India 2011 and Ushoshi is the former Miss Universe India 2010. They share the same birthday month and they share a common love — Goa. With scenic beaches, perky nightlife and beautiful nature experiences, it is just ideal for the party lover and nature lover that the two of them are. Both being July borns, they decided to celebrate in advance at their common favourite vacay destination, with t2, indulging in another common love — fashion. The lush green new property of JW Marriott at Vagator pampered us with their hospitality, and the picturesque hotel and places nearby served as the ideal backdrop for each frame. The looks? Exploring resort wear styles from Dev R Nil and Eeksha, minimally accessorised with chic and sleek statement jewellery pieces from Avama Jewellers. While Dev R Nil’s collection for this special shoot was all about playing around with their signature prints, Ashwin Agarwal from Eeksha chose to showcase their new embroidered collection in lightweight fabrics, designed with smart cuts and an artistic touch. Snapshots:
Pretty prints, pop hues, gelled-back buns and flowy dresses — can beach look essentials get more effortless and classier than this? The Dev R Nil pair of draped dresses featuring scenery print in hues of pink rose and bananaleaf green, with an organza jacket option, creates this cheerful beach frame. The single-colour semi-precious stone-studded diamond and white gold drops and sleek diamond bracelets are glam yet comfy beach accessories.

Defining easy elegance and wearability in luxury resort styles, the vibrantly designed outfit is accessorised with chunky stone-studded diamond earrings. (left)
