Photo by Shifaz Huthee “One did not simply put on a Dhivehi Libaas. It was a symbol. The outspoken celebration of a girl becoming a woman. To wear one was to show pride in, and embrace one’s feminine-hood.
MODERN - 4 the makeup artist here has taken into account all of the brides colours, the blue under the eye is striking next to the red of the lips. the slight bit of red on the lid makes the whole face come together.
The little girl captured in this photograph is performing Bharat Natyam, a classic Indian dance form . this also looks like some of the traditional dances kids showed us in Nepal. Seems like a fantastic cultural heritage!
