This Sabyasachi Model Showing Off Her Blemishes Sent Out A Flawless Message To The World

This morning, freckles had a bit of a moment on the internet when ace designer Sabyasachi posted a close-up of a model with freckles.

Wearing the Sabyasachi heritage jewelry and a hand-printed organza saree, the model is looking straight into the camera as if to make a point. (I should totally blog about those uncut diamonds and giant emeralds in another post!)

The lotus pond is a collection of statement jewellery in uncut diamonds strung together with faceted and cabochon emeralds in different hues and colours. A combination of Zambian, Russian and Colombian emeralds create a strange watery hue that are reminiscent of silent lotus ponds in rural Bengal. A big inspiration for this collection also comes from paintings of Raja Ravi Verma and his sensitive use of colour. On Her: Hand-printed organza saree with a brocade border and hand-embroidered trim. The saree is paired with a hand-embroidered raw silk blouse and a stunning necklace strung out of a single line of uncut diamonds and a collection of giant sized antique carved emeralds detailed with tiny coral and black spinel beads.

If you notice, the freckles on her face are dense around the cheekbones and are slightly scattered on the nose and forehead. Au naturale. 

While the freckles are already a thing in the West (thanks to Ms. Watson), they are yet to make a wave in India. Don’t you think the Sabyasachi-freckles are totally suiting the Indian skin tone? Tbh, they look more desirable than the bronze tanned hue.


This bold move has received a mixed reaction so far. Some say the model looks ‘annoyed and dull,’ others think it is a fresh appearance.

“…the lady is just stunning, never seen freckles look so good.”


What do you think?

Btw, do you know how to create faux freckles? There are various tones of freckle pencil brushes that are available in the market, go explore!
