This past weekend saw a whole collection of glitzy dresses with missing backs (or fronts), styled on one of the most stylish celebs of Bollywood. At a recent award show, stars turned up the heat to go head on with the sweltering May we have been having, and God bless 'em for that. From chainmail metallic dresses to feather details found in the most unexpected places, these are some of our favourite celebrity looks from the weekend gone by!
Model and actress Waluscha De Sousa is an absolute stunner. Her Gavin Miguel couture gown was inspired by the standout designs of Mehendi and detailed with lead grey black and glistening beads, making her look like a million bucks. We love the backless silhouette of this number, its fun, flirty and all kinds of sexy!

Beyond The Clouds actress, Malavika Mohanan has been quite active in the fashion scene since her 2017 debut. But it took this metallic chainmail dress for us to sit up and take notice of this shiny beauty. This KARTIKEYA creation is filled with interesting details like embellished bugle beads, shaded french knots, rich velvet applique and sheer beaded panels. Also, check out the neck on this thing!

The reason why teenage girls from 90s have a good taste in music, Anushka Manchanda is still killing it with her fearless and uninhibited style.

We love Patralekhaa's habit to never play by the rules when it comes to fashion. Her Lecoanet Hemant gown came with a full thing of feathers in the front and back, with a flaming design that perfectly sums up her daring and rebellious sense of style.
Whether she is running miles as a fitness ambassador or putting together an outfit for an event filled with standout looks, Saiyami Kher can pretty much do it all. We love the ballerina-inspired Monisha Jaising dress, full with a caged upper and dropped long tutu bottom that looks so feminine and badass at the same time.
