The Nath (nose ring) has been making one hell of a comeback of late, and its literally everywhere from the red caprert to the runway! Sonam Kapoor was first spotted donning one at Cannes Film Festival and Vidya Balan followed suit, once again both rehashing the big question: to wear or not to wear?! On the runway both Karl Largerfeld's Bombay-Paris Pre-Fall Collection 2012, Sabyasachi and numerous other designers at Lakme Fashion Week had their models rocking these controversial accessories.
A Nath to me is like marmite, you either love it or hate it, and personally, unlike marmite - I love it! They ooze edgy elegance and worn in a complimentary way, cannot only be extremely flattering but can make a showstopper of an outfit. The Nath or nose ring has come along way from being considered as a traditional ethnic accessory worn by brides primarily. Now I think there is a more diverse place for nose rings, Topshop and ASOS have both caught onto the rebirth of the Nath selling them as not only a accessory worthy of a night out on the town but as a more wearable daily accessory for the more daring of fashionistas.
