Model, dancer, actor and a fashion personality in her own right, Malaika Arora dons many hats. From her hit on-screen performances to a recent stint as a reality TV judge, the actress’s sartorial taste has witnessed advancement of its own, her expansive wardrobe never failing to impress. And when it comes to making bold and edgy outfits work, she has a knack for it like no one else.
As the actress celebrates her 47th birthday today, we take a look at some of her most daring attires that made us stop and look twice.
Risqué outfits with a side of effortless? Our girl has been there, done that, most recently in a Gaurav Gupta ensemble in head-to-toe black. With an off-the-shoulder top highlighted by heavy ruffles, the Bollywood star tried a pair of slightly flared trousers and the result was a scene-stealing look. Did we say effortless already?
A slit on the edgier side could’ve made anyone nervous but then again, Malaika Arora has mastered the trick of wearing her thigh-high slits like its no big deal. Cue to this Evyatar Myor number that she wore like a second skin, cape, slick heels and all that jazz included.
High-octane bejewelled numbers are not new to the actress’s fashion lexicon either and a case in point would be the dazzling Alina Anwar Couture gown she wore with a prominent necklace by Diosa jewels. All over glitter donned like it’s just another day really.
The tulle Giambattista Valli X H&M dress that made some waves has been worn by many, but we are a bit partial to Malaika Arora making it work with that famous oomph. On-point pumps, an impeccable beauty look and jewellery that didn’t overpower the look—what’s not to love!
Walking the length of the runway for Diyarajvvir at Lakme Fashion Week last year, the actress and former model made heads turn and how. Wearing a non-conformist (and edgy!) fusion look in a deep red hue, Malaika Arora’s designer look was just another example of wearing one’s bold finds like no one was looking.
Indian wear, but with a twist. In an innovative Amit Aggarwal drape with a new-age blouse and high level of sheen, the 47-year-old, styled by Maneka Harisinghani, worked the unconventional red saree in style. Talk about inspiration for wedding-goer or festive looks that steal the show!
It goes without saying that Malaika Arora has mastered those tricky cut-outs and body-hugging details a long time back. But should you need further testimony, this scarlet Julien Macdonald gown with a floor-grazing hem, risqué slit and one-shoulder detail does the talking for us! No missing out on that striking lip colour either, is there?
That plunging necklines, slits that go on forever and all the elements that could make the best of us nervous are pulled off with a cool charm would be clear by now, but another scene-stealing look all the same! We are talking about this white lace gown by Aadnevik that came with all the aforementioned features and made an appearance with sky-high heels.
And for the end, there’s no forgetting this almost easy-looking but nevertheless daring fit in Malaika Arora’s most risqué looks. With the attire styled with separates from Malak El Ezzawy and Shweta Kapur’s 431-88, the actress made a sleek bandeau work with a pair of trousers and a billowing overcoat, just in case you were looking for going-out options to save for later.
And with that, we reach to the end of Malaika Arora’s boldest fashion outfits. Here’s hoping for more to come!
