Get your wardrobes Diwali-ready ladies, there’s hardly any time left. Your favourite Bollywood celebrities are nailing the festive looks already. Having said that, we know that their Diwali outfit is hanging in their wardrobe, nicely wrapped in a plastic wrap because their recent looks are screaming ‘desi-girl’. From what we can tell, pastels are ruling and pink is definitely the colour of the season. Last week, Navratri looks took over Instagram and we’re definitely looking at them for all our ensemble inspirations this season. So guess what? Here they are, again, casually setting major goals for your next Diwali party.
Who wants to stay away from embellishments when there’s a festival coming up? No one. Get an embroidered or embellished gown in your favourite colour, like Bipasha Basu’s Pink Floor-length Anarkali Gown, and combine it with a statement piece of jewellery, preferably earrings. You should definitely style it with an all-over-braided bun like hair stylist Kaushal D’Souza did here for Bipasha. Her minimal make-up look was done by Sanya Shadadpuri. Don’t you love how perfect her cat-eye flick is?
POPxo Recommends: Priyanka Jain Powder Blue Embroidered Flared Gown (Rs 49,500)
No one wears a sari like Shilpa Shetty. Seriously. Kudos to the stylist, Sanjana Batra, who gave the simplest Monisha Jaising sari an elegant edge. Drape it in a way that highlights your curves and style it with minimal make-up and jewellery, like Shilpa’s choker and bracelet from Anmol Jewellers.
POPxo Recommends: Eshaani Jayaswal Aqua pleated lycra saree with birds embroidered blouse (Rs 36,500)
Gold and bold? Sure. Bhumi Pednekar is one talented actress who can pull off both Indian and international looks with ease. Blend your favourite pastel colour floor-length suit (Bhumi is wearing a neck-fit outfit from Bhumika Sharma) with gold border. Just like stylist Aastha Sharma did for Bhumi, with statement earrings and a low ponytail, you’ll be all set to attend your next party.
POPxo Recommends: Megha & Jigar Off White Embroidered Anarkali with Rose Pink Dupatta (Rs 69,900)
An embellished cream gown with a plunging neckline, 90s style? Yes, please. Leave your hair straight if you’re going for a light coloured outfit and highlight your eyes, just like hairstylist Marce Pedrozo and make-up artist Devika Heroor did for Shruti Haasan.
POPxo Recommends: Payal Singhal Stone rosette embroidered gown (Rs 1,55,000) and
Gaurav Gupta Ecru Pearls Embroidered Saree Gown (Rs 1,57,500)
Well, stylist Mohit Rai always gets it right for Sonakshi Sinha. If you want to keep it lighter than a lehenga and yet festive, colourful embroidered floor-length kurta in an easy shade like Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla’s sheer pastel outfit is a perfect choice. Throw in a pair of chandelier earrings like Sonakshi’s from Gehna Jewellers.
POPxo Recommends: Param Sahib Blue Multicolored Handembroidered Anarkali with Pink Embellished Dupatta (Rs 39,999)
Or just opt for a simple and delicate look like Tamannah’s. She’s wearing a sea green anarkali suit from Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla and her look is styled by celebrity stylist, Sanjana Batra.
