Best Dressed Bollywood Divas in April

Summer is at its peak, but our Bollywood stars still manage to be at their sartorial best in some of the best costumes. What’s special about the summer wardrobe is that you can experiment with lots of fresh colors and fun prints. Balance the look with minimal or no accessories, some nude makeup, casual footwear and you are all set to beat the heat with your freshness. But, if you are the bride or if you are heading for a dinner invite, you can take some cues from these sizzling actresses from Bollywood.

While our new “Baywatch” girl Priyanka Chopra was recently seen at the 102nd annual White House Correspondent’s dinner sporting an ultra-feminine gown, we also loved the beautiful rose-print lehenga that adorned the bride-to-be, Bipasha Basu on her Mehendi.

While the Amazon India Fashion Week Autumn-Winter concluded its five day long fashion extravaganza this week, it left behind some super trends and awesome creations to cherish.

It was all about celebrating freshness and crafts with a blend of traditional and contemporary.

Coming to the Day 3 of the AIFW, the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium dazzled with the menswear collections which was a sartorial splendor by three designers. While Ujjwal Dubey (Kolkata) showcased a fusion of structured fittings and drapes with dhoti style trousers, the designs by Divyam Mehta on the other hand were in earthy tones with block printing, kantha work or shibori designs balanced with bandhgalas, and samurai pants that signified the contemporary globe trotter. For Rohit Kamra, it was more about fitted bandhgala suits and traditional jackets.

The second half of the show witnessed some relaxing creations by JJ Valaya with classic Kurtas, Manak Singh with Sikh inspired couture, Rohit Bal with his dazzling Vampire collection, Troy Costa label that dressed up the Kabaddi League players with tailored suits, while Rahul Khanna and Rohit Gandhi showcased their collection of draped aprons and kurta shirts paired with black and white separates.

We witnessed a spectacular evening with Anupama Dayal’s Anupamaa line that showcased a collection with Nagaland’s tribal elements. while her prints were inspired from the wild, the off-shoulder blouses or the Khadi cotton dresses mesmerized as well. While there were plenty of new generation designers who displayed their creations on the Day 4 of the AIFW 2016 event, it was the showstoppers Malaika Arora Khan and Athiya Shetty who stole the show.

The curvaceous Malaika walked for Mandira Wirk’s collection titled Romancing Rococo that reflected ultra-feminine refined style. Athiya on the other hand walked the ramp for designer Namrata Joshipura in a black bodysuit which she carried with quite aplomb and must we say that simply dazzled in this sexy yet classy attire.

Namrata Joshipura focused more on fringe detailing, gleaming hats, dresses with botanical prints and luxe red jumpsuits. We were quite amused with the return of gingham checks by Aneeth Arora on khadi trousers or dresses, while the embroidered khadi blouses, recycled woven tops, wool dresses or the reversible jackets caught our attention too. Elegant geometric patterns and flowers filled Nikita Mahajan’s rose and ivory regalia made of handcrafted laces. We love the sequined detailing interwoven with pearls though.

From pre-draped saris and constructed palazzos to layered anarkalis Mandira Wirk’s designs was all about flowing silhouettes, sheer fabrics and flattering cuts in shades of gold, black, beige and ivory. Ashima Leena’s collection reflected the rich work on Persian carpets that adorned the fluid silhouettes. Appliques, prints and playful feathers all over on earthy hues like, mustard or olive green highlighted out the Persian culture perfectly.  Sari took a contemporary turn with Anavila’s creations, while we witnessed layering of the traditional Indian attire with cardigans which were decked up by 3D embroidered flowers. Pleated underskirts with floral prints and bell sleeves also accentuated these unique creations.

We loved the comfy look by Eka which was more of polka dots matched with palazzos, checkered regalia in warm tones that signified a more cozy winter wear collection. For Bodice it was rediscovering the traditional wardrobe through the contemporary and fabulous fabrics. Soft silhouettes, oversized drapes, waist pleats and woolen work formed the designs. Lovebirds showcased their penchant for color blocks in reds, greys, black and more that formed their winter collection. Woolen layering, midi dresses and the robe coats were simply the attention grabbers of the evening.

Pointilism painting technique and rib paneling was the highlight of the ILK collection by Shikha and Vinita. The sartorial cocoon coats, transformed saris, opaque textiles and candy blues were all so serene yet fashionable. Leather bralets with fringe detailing, elegant forms of easygoing formal and casual attires, kangaroo print cloaks or the Kurtas in mellowed hues perfectly highlighted the concept of the collection Ikai by Ragini Ahuja.
