What comes after a multi-day, multi-cultural, and multi-ceremonial celebrity wedding celebration in Jodhpur? The attendance of a friend’s happy union, naturally—and a beauty look that builds on the month’s iconic events. Priyanka Chopra stepped out on Sunday in Udaipur, India, with husband Nick Jonas on her arm, her bright fuchsia-stained lip color playing off of his preppy pink jacket and pulling focus to a bit of lingering bridal regalia.
The pair arrived ahead of Indian heiress Isha Ambani prenuptial parties looking utterly in-step: Jonas’s matching rosy toned shirt and blazer lending a zingy pop to Chopra’s lushly painted lips. Rather than deep and bordeaux stained in tone, the actress’s pout looked buoyant, creating a visual echo of her slowly fading “sindoor,”—the vermillion red henna marking that brides traditionally wear painted down their center-parted hairlines to telegraph their ‘taken’ status, then allow to fade gradually in the days following the wedding.
Jonas and Chopra’s latest his-and-hers outing puts a modern spin on the cultural tradition. The lesson? When dreaming up newlywed style statements, synchronicity is key—as is allowing the spirit of your ‘happily ever after’ bliss to linger as long as possible.
