Bollywood actor Samantha Akkineni is spreading festive vibes and serving wedding fashion goals with her latest photoshoot, and all the brides-to-be should definitely take cues from her.

Samantha chose a bright red Banarasi saree for the shoot. It came adorned with bespoke gold brocade embroidery in rose patterns and an embroidered border decorated with thread, sequin and jaal work. She wore the six yards with a half-sleeve blouse featuring a plunging neckline and brocade embroidery.
The actor wore the pallu in a traditional style and cinched it on the waist with a gold vintage kamar bandh. Samantha chose kundan jhumkis, a pretty matha patti, a matching gold necklace and red bangles with gold bracelets to accessorised her traditional bridal look.
Samantha tied her locks in a middle-parted hairdo and decorated them with a white gajra. She rounded off her glam with subtle smoky eyes, a dainty red bindi, glowing skin, nude lip shade, on-fleek eyebrows, blushed cheeks and sharp contour.
