An image from our India Adventure back in early September.

I was recently accused of being 'culturally inappropriate' by someone on twitter for this series of images...

The day this was taken I was wearing a blue saree like a scarf during the shoot when a lovely Indian lady came up to me totally randomly and took the Saree I was using off me and proceeded to dress me. She showed me how to wear a saree, gave me her pin to hold it in place and put a bindi on my forehead. She told me red would look better on me (so we tried the red one too)

It was a great experience- her elderly mother was on the balcony above us cheering her on and telling her to dress me too! A moment I will cherish. She told me I looked beautiful and it was lovely to see me celebrating her culture (as I did ask if it was ok for me to be wearing a Saree- she seemed shocked I asked!)

As an indian may i say there is nothing culturally inappropriate about this photograph.It's a beautiful photograph and you look georgeous in a sari. Also love your mehendi (henna).

Fabulous image and tale to go with it. Whomsoever said it was "culturally inappropriate" is simply ignorant in the extreme. As long as cultural dress is worn with respect, and not as a joke, how can it possibly be "inappropriate"?

love this. there are some very strange people about just looking to condemn and argue. these are hopefully offset by wonderful people that you encountered.

Love it of course. Hope the ink is a transfer though

That’s a lovely story behind a beautiful picture. A lovely touch for the lady to correct your attire too. From what I’ve seen, and heard of you, I would be shocked if you had done something wrong. Wonderful work all round. :)
