Maitreyi Ramakrishnan Serves Old Hollywood Glamour in a Full Blue Velvet Gown
Amidst all the fads and microtrends that sometimes overpower the red carpet, "Never Have I Ever" star Maitreyi Ramakrishnan kept it timeless in a stunning blue velvet gown at the Toronto International Film Festival. The elegant one-shoulder dress had a kind of classic glamour with flattering ruching and, most notably, an oversize bow detail in the back, which draped behind Ramakrishnan and added more volume to the gown. With her side-swept hair and soft waves, the 20-year-old looked like a Hollywood movie star transported to modern times, keeping her accessories simple with a golden nose ring and diamond earrings.
While this velvet number was definitely a show stopper, it's actually the second of Ramakrishnan's high-fashion TIFF looks to catch our attention. Sticking with her bright color palette, the actress previously stepped out in a warm yellow midi dress that hit right above her ankles, serving present-day Belle vibes. Ramakrishnan later posted a photo of the look on her Instagram, happily eating a hot dog in the sunny, strapless number (as she should). Interestingly enough, the yellow dress also featured a bow detail, except that time it was on the top half of the outfit, helping her two TIFF looks come together in just the right way. Check out more photos of her breathtaking blue velvet gown ahead, and see how Ramakrishnan is keeping it classic on the carpet.
