According to Julien’s official website, Radhika‘s Dior dress was obtained from Cassandra Carpenter in San Francisco. It was originally from Jeannie Magnin. Reportedly, the dress was put on auction by Doris Raymond, an expert in vintage clothing.

Meanwhile, the dress details mix the viral Barbiecore and coquette core fashion trends with the bright raspberry pink colour and details such as bows and frills. Though the sleeveless dress is from 1959, it is surprisingly modern. Additionally, the broad shoulder straps, slit on the square neckline, fitted bodice, cinched waistline, and pleated voluminous skirt add to the ensemble’s beauty.

Meanwhile, Radhika styled the ensemble with dainty teardrop earrings, a bracelet, a diamond ring, a Hermès mini Kelly bag in pink, and jewelled white Hangisi flats from Manolo Blahnik. She tied her wavy tresses in a side-parted ponytail and accessorised with a printed silk scarf. Lastly, feathered brows, fuchsia pink lip shade, and minimal glam rounded off her look.
