Tum Husn Pari, Tum Jane Jahan: 9 Times Shilpa Shetty Gave Us Wedding Fashion Goals

When it comes to fashion, there are a few things as poetic and as refined as the fine art of draping. And there are a few Indian celebs who appreciate a nicely draped outfit as much as Shilpa Shetty. Be it her Indo-western sarees or even a shirt and skirt outfit, trust Shilpa to incorporate a bit of draping in almost every ensemble and carry it with utmost elan. Well, as the ever-so-young B-town diva turns 46 today, we have decided to curate the best of her draped outfits, the ones that we’d like to take wedding wear inspiration from. Read on:

9 Shilpa Shetty-Inspired Drape Outfits That We’d Tots Wear to A Wedding

For the first time in two months, India registered less than one lakh COVID-19 cases in a day today. While the pandemic is far from over, this gives us hope that things might soon get back to normal. And once that happens, we won’t wait to go to the mall, meet our besties, and dance to our heart’s content at their weddings. Now, given the entire fashion break that we have had, we do feel a little rusty and are pretty sure that you feel the same. However, fret not ‘coz we have got you covered. Here are nine Shilpa Shetty outfits that you can take wedding wear inspiration from.

Hot For Haldi

In case you might be looking for a sweet, comfy drape perfect for summer festivities, we suggest this Meryl concept saree by Qbik? From the juicy hues to the pleating details, everything about this outfit screams top-notch glamm. Take this from us–there is no going wrong with this one. 


However, if multicolour isn’t your thing, then you can also take inspiration from this Shantanu and Nikhil beauty. We love how the outfit has such a Hollywood in the 60s vibe. We especially have a thing for the fitted bodice and the cowl-like detail that has been used as a mix of an off-shoulder neck and a dupatta here.


Mehendi Ready

What’s your take on this boho skirt and cape set by Anamika Khanna? ‘Coz as far as we are concerned we can totally picture the chicest diva at a mehendi function turning heads in this gorgeous outfit. Well, in case you like to be the life of the party we suggest that you look the part too and opt for something as boho and statement as this Anamika Khanna offering.  


But in case you feel like it is too much, we have something equally statement but less dramatic in store for you. This skirt and shirt set by 431-88 is been our personal favourite. You can definitely dress it up by adding some solid gold jewels and colour block heels to the look. We are thinking of a long gold chain and cobalt blue stilettos. What do you think?


Pool Party On My Mind

We know…we know that a pool party feels like a distant dream amid the pandemic. But what if things go back to normal super soon and your friends decide to throw a pool party? Well, a girl can dream and also, stay prepared while she is at it. Right? Here is a draped dress that should keep you thoroughly inspired: 


Cocktail Night Glamm

Is it even possible to talk about drapes without a mention of the saree gown? Well, we are absolutely digging this marsala beauty by Manish Malhotra and are especially in love with that sheer corset top. There are so many ways to recreate this look. However, we do recommend that you stick with jewel hues when doing so.


Sangeet Shenanigans

The one-shoulder pattern, the cinched waist, the tassel details that delicately highlight the drape–everything about this look has us saying “uffff.” Also, we say you go all in and opt for emerald accessories just like Shilpa has done while recreating this look ‘coz it really doesn’t get more perfect than this. 



For the D-day, we recommend this 80s style drape by Pallavi Jaipur. From the ruffle details at the hem to the velvet blouse and the intricate handwork, everything about this look suggests elegance and beauty.


Alternatively, you can also try something like this off-shoulder Ridhi Mehra saree gown. Don’t miss out on the embellished belt while recreating this look. Of course, you can play around with the jewels here and we suggest that you go a little grander with your choker. 


Well, here’s wishing the queen of drapes a very happy birthday!
