It's my first story of 2020 and I'm so glad that the year's beginning for me on a fashionable note. That too a good fashion trend! And I have none other than Ananya Panday to be thankful for this one.
It all started when my dark mode-ridden 'gram feed highlighted a tiny pop of pink. I saw it in Gauri Khan's post from the New Year's Eve party the Khan's had hosted at their Alibaug farmhouse. They rang in the new year with family and friends including Sanjay and Maheep Kapoor as well as Chunky and Bhavana Panday among others. Though we didn't get to see the Charlie's Angels (Suhana, Ananya and Shanaya) together as Shanaya hadn't come to the party, however, we did see a small fashion forecast for 2020 with Ananya's little OOTN.
If we're bringing one thing from 2019 to 2020, it's this shiny vinyl trend. Well, that and neon because we just love Ananya's look! While Suhana wore an LBD with an embellished dragon design in muted gold, Ananya combined the two popular trends--neon and vinyl--in one dress, paving way for a stylish year ahead. If it's not bright, it's not right! That's the style theme we're following in 2020.
Here's a complete breakdown of the SOTY 2 star's look from NYE:
Dolled up by celebrity stylist Tanya Ghavri, Ananya's vinyl mini dress in pink is by Oh Polly. The scoop-necked number is called 'Bad Reputation' and comes with an affordable price tag of £40 (Rs 3.7k approx.). The 21-year-old completed her party look with a pair of silver hoops and tie-up block heels in beige. Well, that's all she needed, didn't she?
May we all have a super happening 2020 just like Ananya Panday, who has already started making headlines already, two days in the new year. One, for her first look in her next film titled Khaali Peeli, opposite Ishaan Khatter. It looks promising and here it is:
And two, for her defending remarks on nepotism on Rajeev Masand's The Newcomers Roundtable that, according to the Internet, have been 'savagely' addressed by Gully Boy fame Siddhant Chaturvedi, who too was a part of the episode. Ananya had said, "I have always wanted to be an actor. Just because my dad has been an actor, I will never say no to an opportunity to act. My dad has never been in a Dharma film, he never went on Koffee With Karan. So it’s not as easy as people say. Everyone has their own journey and their own struggle."
To this, MC Sher said, "The difference is 'Jahaan humare sapne pAore hote hain, wahin inka struggle shuru hota hai' (their struggle begins where our dreams come true)." The short video clip has gone viral now.
