Diwali is just around the corner, and dressing up is again a hassle, this time. Though we love the festival of lights and fireworks to the core, it would be a tad wrong to say that we don’t worry about the outfits that we are going to wear. After all, the same old Indian wear, without ant zing, turns out to be a bit boring, don’t you think?
So, this time, we thought of transforming you into a through and through cracker, this Diwali, using the closet styles of our own Bollywood divas, setting trends since decades.
Take a look.
Let’s start with the reigning queen of Bollywood in today’s times, Deepika. We can safely assume that whatever this diva wears, her million-dollar smile will automatically transform it into something ten-fold magical. She looks magical in this and this piece is a must have in our Diwali wishlist.
We are simply loving her makeup and outfits from the promos of her latest, ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’. It would be sufficing to say that even though she plays a Muslim character, the traditional and fusion outfits that she is wearing (special mention: the anarkali kurta and ripped jeans of ‘The Breakup Song’), along with perfectly kohled eyes and flawless, dewy makeup, just win us over. This look can be carried with ease on any festive occasion. Manish Malhotra has given her a gorgeous avatar here.
One look at her, and we do wonder if this stunning diva ever ages or not. This yellow number by Anita Dongre is a stunner on her, and trust us, is effortless to carry too. You too can go with this look, quite easily.
This one won our hearts at first sight. Again a fusion, the yellow cape cum robe on the white dress is giving a beautiful and light vibe. As Huma is looking fantabulous in this Ritika Mirchandani number, this is yet another outfit which should form a part of your Diwali wardrobe.
Here’s another look of Huma which has just won our hearts. This one she has donned for the last night of the ongoing MAMI Festival. This Sanjana Batra number, which she has skilfully paired with jhumkas and blue eyeliner, is hard to miss. Take note, ladies.
We are in love and how. Just look the beguiling charm that Shilpa is exuding in this pink number, looking effortlessly chic and at the same time full of festive vibes. The pink choli and dupatta is set off beautifully by a completely contrast fusion of yellow and white striped ghagra or skirt. We love, and here’s another to your Diwali wishlist, this gorgeous Priya Prakash number.
Jhanvi Kapoor and Sridevi
Sridevi is like wine, getting better with age. And there is absolutely no doubt on the fact that she has passed on the good looks and an impeccable sense of fashion to her daughters too. Look at this picture, for instance. Who can guess who’s the mother here? We can’t. They simply rocked the Manish Malhotra couture. These three too are a terrific option to add to your Diwali wardrobe.
One look, however, that steals the show is that of Kriti Sanon, the one she sported at the Gionee event, the brand for which she is the brand ambassador. This Ritu Kumar number is simply stunning in its simplicity. We are just floored, and this sure is in our Diwali wishlist of dressing up. Of course, credit goes to her stylist, Rhea Kapoor, for giving us such a classy red and black number.
Kareena Kapoor Khan
Speaking of fashion that spells out style in caps, one just cannot forget Kareena Kapoor Khan, especially when her maternity fashion game is all on point. This looks where she is sporting a Sukirti and Aakriti black and gold sharara is just making us faint with delight. Another look to add to your wishlist.
Well, ignore the event, i.e. the Smita Patil award which Katrina received amidst all the memes and protests. However, her green and gold outfit sure grabbed our eyeballs, and for good reason. This Sabyasachi ensemble surely is beautiful and totally festive-worthy.
So, which one’s your pick, this Diwali? Do let us know in the comments below.
