She wears a pair of showstealing golden jhumpkas by Kalyan Jewellers, adding a touch of Indian charm to her Western look.
Finishing off her look with a classic French braid, the 30-year-old actress’s princess-inspired look is reminiscent of Elsa from Disney’s sensational musical film, Frozen (2013).
