With a traditional 'Namastey', the Trudeau family deboarded their Aircraft on Saturday, and soon after they touched the ground,a surprising wave of Suraj Barjatia-esque Indianness engulfed foreign diplomacy!
Canadian PM Justin Trudeau and his family are on a week-long visit to India. Other than their non-meeting with Indian PM Narendra Modi, what's catching everyone's attention is the Trudeau family's fascinating wardrobe choice- too Indian even for an Indian.
To make an impression, or just to feel the oriental embrace, the Trudeau family has picked the best Indian designers, to make for them, the best ethical Indian attire. All a little too much, feels National Conference leader Omar Abdullah.
Is it just me or is this choreographed cuteness all just a bit much now? Also FYI we Indians don’t dress like this every day sir, not even in Bollywood. pic.twitter.com/xqAqfPnRoZ— Omar Abdullah (@OmarAbdullah) February 21, 2018
The choice of colours (bright red, yellow, golden) in their wardrobe resonate with some sort of Bollywood fascination. After all, Justin Trudeau has admitted to being a fan of Shah Rukh Khan.
A look at their three most Indian looks
On their visit to the Sabarmati Ashram in Gujarat, the Canadian PM opted to wear a bright red Sherwani, while his wife Sophie Gregoire chose a yellow Anita Dongre Kurta pairing it with a red bindi. The Trudeau family had also worn garlands around their necks.
Meeting With The Stars
Canadian Prime Minister upped the ante when he wore a bright shiny golden sherwani with a quintessential red dupatta for a meeting with the Bollywood stars. Sophie Gregoire, his wife, draped an off-white Saree (Sabyasachi would be glad) accessorized with traditional Indian jewellery. Their daughter wore a yellow-pink lehenga and a blue sherwani was selected for their 10-year-old son.
It's no surprise that Justin Trudeau is a frequent attendee to Gurudwaras in Canada. On his first visit to Golden Temple, the PM chose to tone down the striking colours he wore on other occasions, and opted for an off-white Sherwani, while his wife chose a sea blue ensemble for herself.
