Queen of Insta poetry, Rupi Kaur’s moving words about immigration, domestic violence, sexual assault and other substantial subjects have touched the hearts of millions, and her following of 2.1 M is proof of it.

Popular fashion magazine Elle India recently collaborated with her and illustrated her poems with beautiful fashion imagery. The gorgeous dresses by famous designers like Oscar De La Renta, Pero, Namrata Joshipura, and Rahul Misra, are used accordingly with Rupi Kaur’s intense poems.

What we love about the illustrations is the way it has portrayed different sides of a woman. From a confident, chic lady to a lady enjoying her sexuality, from dynamics shared between two empowering women to a strong woman enjoying her alone time. And with Kaur’s beautiful words, the fashionable illustrations have got a whole another edge.
