Thinking of the high-octane glamour of red carpets always brings to mind the thigh-high slits and the glimmer. But before you go that route, let us redirect you to another raging style that Bollywood stars rely on—plunging necklines. From gowns and dresses to jumpsuits and tailored separates that make the formal events a sartorial hit, plunging necklines are ubiquitous when it comes to Bollywood outings. There have been many noteworthy looks incorporating the element. So we looked into it and here are our favourite seven!
The Style Quotient
From Deepika Padukone to Priyanka Chopra, here's taking a look at the all the divas who left us smitten with their striking looks in recent times.
Kareena Kapoor Khan's look from an award show outing was all about drama and minimalism at once. Incorporating embellished details to the highest degree, the actress made for a memorable red carpet appearance, a daring neckline in tow.
Trust Sonam Kapoor to raise the bar with her style each time she steps out. Dressed in an all-white look by designer Sharon Wauchob, the Bollywood trendsetter made a strong case for monochrome layers, with her deep neckline held in place by a gold linked chain. Adding to her look were matching accessories that elevated the chic ensemble.
Following in her cousin's footsteps, Janhvi Kapoor made a scene-stealing entry into an awards show, her plunging neckline comprising a metallic number by Maria Lucia Hohan. With engineered pleats, a halter neck and broad cinched waist, all that was left was to stand out from the crowd.
Priyanka Chopra's unconventional Ralph & Russo outing for the Grammy's this year might need no introduction but it surely deserves a solid mention. The all-white look took the internet by a storm, as the polarising opinion about her plunging neckline gown went on for days.
Taking a slightly different route, Malaika Arora opted for a black jumpsuit with ruffle details at the risqué neckline, something only she could have pulled off with that amount of effortlessness. The Gaurav Gupta number, styled by Maneka Harisinghani, was all about smart tailoring that made way for a suave look.
Remember Deepika Padukone's structured off-the-shoulder gown with detached sleeves? Comprising a plunging neckline, the actress' red carpet outing was one of her chicest, with the jewels imparting an added appeal.
Taking the avant-garde route, the actress and producer pulled off a trusted look with metallic finish and texture for an appearance--the sleeve details, neckline, and the asymmetrical hem all falling in place together.
