How to Wear Bejeweled Headpieces and Headdresses

There was a surge in Bollywood-inspired looks a couple of years ago, and many celebrities have incorporated bejeweled headpieces into their ensembles. The bindi, a colored dot worn on the center of the forehead by Hindu and Jain women, has been copied by famous celebrities, such as Gwen Stefani, Nicole Scherzinger, and Selena Gomez.

Although interesting and beautifully exotic, this accessory is a religious symbol and should not be worn as a seductive accessory. Selena Gomez recently came under fire for wearing a bindi as part of a costume for her performances. And the Hindu community was definitely not happy about it.

As an alternative to the controversial bindi, celebs have also been wearing bejeweled headdresses that have the same exotic Bollywood vibe.
