Wardrobe Breakdown: Simone Ashley At ‘Bridgerton’ Dinner Celebrating South Asian Culture

Netflix brought together diverse tastemakers to celebrate the launch of Bridgerton Season 2 and South Asian culture with lead Simone Ashley at Arth Bar & Kitchen in Culver City.

Hosted by Teen Vogue Editor-in-Chief Versha Sharma, the dinner event showcased a South Asian influenced culinary experience and conversations about cultural appreciation, and how diversity in entertainment can serve as inspiration and connection for society.

Arth’s Chef Sagar Ghosh treated guests to a Tamil Nadu inspired dinner menu in homage to Simone Ashley’s heritage, featuring vegan options made with Daring Foods Plant Chicken. A Bridgerton themed dessert was created by Hetal Vasavada from Milk and Cardamom with rose petals from the Tamil Nadu region of India.

Simone Ashley expressed her joy “to be standing here, sharing this space, celebrating beautiful, wonderful South Asian talent and culture. We’re normalizing this conversation in hopes that we’re creating opportunities for the years to come.”

The guests were overwhelmed with positive emotion. Kal Penn expressed that “this evening was so meaningful. It’s a celebration of an incredible show, from an incredible platform that understands the difference between tokenization and representation in a way that makes audiences of all backgrounds laugh, cry, and love. It’s an amazing thing to celebrate.”
