1. Anushka’s Bridal Best In ADHM
Anushka looked like a dream in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil! Her bridal look from the movie became every bride-to-be’s dream lehenga. Are we surprised? Hell no! It’s a Manish Malhotra design that weighs nothing less than 17kgs. It sure did take our breath away! We think this top to bottom embellished lehenga in a gold tone is a trendy piece you can totally take inspiration from.
2. Sonam’s Lehenga Swag In Dolly Ki Doli
If there’s someone who can pull off a trendy lehenga with SO much swagger, it’s got to be Sonam Kapoor! Whether it’s a multicolour lehenga with gota patti work and a heavy jacket or a royal blue lehenga with a leather jacket, Sonam shows us how to stand out at the next festive event. Playing with bright colours for your wedding lehenga is perfect for the new age girl who wants to look anything but boring!
3. Bright Contrasts Like Alia In HSKD & Badrinath Ki Dulhania!
Neon colours and contrast coloured lehengas never fail to make a statement. If you’re opting for a lehenga in a neon colour, choose a fabric that doesn’t make the bright colour shine too much, if you don’t want to look OTT. Alia sure knows how to rock the colour! Take tips from her and experiment with contrasting hues, a heavily embellished blouse and a plain dupatta with work only on the border. It’ll make the colour stand out while giving a glamorous touch to the outfit! We’re so excited to see all the gorgeous lehengas she’s wearing in her upcoming film!
4. Subtly Sexy Like Deepika In YJHD
It’s been four years since this movie released and we still can’t get over how gorgeous Deepika looked in it! Her desi outfits in the movie were simple yet stunning. And if you want to channel some sexiness, then look no further than this geek turned sex bomb! She wore a hot pink and yellow lehenga which we think is just perfect for the next mehendi ceremony you attend. The one shoulder blouse is sure to add a sexy appeal to your look! You can also play with simple colours like white and make them work for you by wearing a bright coloured blouse and metallic accessories to make it a winning look!
5. Sonam’s Extravagant Look In PRDP
If your bestie or sister is getting married anytime soon, Sonam’s lehengas in Prem Ratan Dhan Payo are perfect to take some inspiration from!

It’s the perfect mix of beautiful, regal and traditional. Wow!

Katrina broke the internet with the gorgeous floral lehenga she wore in the song ‘Nachne De Saare’from Baar Baar Dekho. Perfect for a day function or wedding, the floral lehenga in shades of pink exudes a very feminine vibe. Her maxi skirt style lehenga without a dupatta made a huge fashion statement! This look is ideal for every girl who’s looking for something stunning but not OTT.
7. Alia’s Off Shoulder Glam In Shaandaar!
Off shoulder plus velvet - Alia looked fabulous in this dreamy lehenga! Her pallu was draped like a saree which gave this modern lehenga a traditional twist.

8. Vaani’s New Age Lehenga In Befikre
Vaani Kapoor’s character in the film was carefree and modern. And this lehenga really did justice to the character she portrayed! White and golden is a classic combination that’s sure to turn heads. Vaani’s lehenga in the film is a trendy version of the same classic. The thigh high slit and the mesh blouse is a surefire way to make a statement! For every girl who wants to keep it cool even when she wears a lehenga, this one is the way to go!

Got a couple of day functions coming up? A pastel yellow lehenga is all you need to look girly and traditional!

Throwing it back to the early 2000s, Preity’s sky blue and beige lehenga was a stunner for its time and one we would gladly wear even today!
