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.

The much awaited Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort opened on Wednesday with the Summer Bride collection of none other than the fashion maestro, Manish Malhotra. The opening show was a Bollywood studded event with stars like Kareena Kapoor Khan, Jaqueline Fernandez and Arjun Kapoor turning show stoppers for the celebrated fashion designer.

BollywoodHis summer specific collection “Elements” is all about soft fabrics that are candidly bridal. Models walked for 70 different drapes on the ramp that sought inspiration from earth, water, wind and flame. Whether you are the bride or the one in the bridal party, the collection offered something for everyone with a flurry of ethnic options (Malhotra is known for) that ranged from saris, lehengas, cocktail dresses to gowns.

We simply loved the crepes, tussars and the organzas used in the creations woven with intricate embroidery that glittered with salli sequins, and jeweled flowers that reflected his craftsmanship and prowess far superior than his recently launched fabric focused “Regal Threads” line. The summery hues of powder blue, blush pink, nude or grey accentuated the elegance of the entire collection. It was a dreamy and fascinating collection in pastel shades that makes for a perfect bridal party wear this season.

While we couldn’t take our eyes off the traditional Indian silhouettes blended on contemporary material, a  sharply tailored menswear collection by Malhotra in shades of mint, blue, salmon, grey and ivory also won our applauds.

And, as a Manish Malhotra show could not be complete without his Bollywood clients, we witnessed a starry night once more with his celebrity muses from the upcoming movie “Ki and Ka” Arjun Kapoor (in a dark blue traditional sherwani paired with a silver jacket) and Kareena Kapoor. But, we must admit that the star that took our breath away was Jacqueline Fernandez who looked resplaendant in a glittery silver cocktail gown. Other celebs like, Nita Ambani, Farah Khan, Dia Mirza, Shriya Saran, Sophie Choudry were among others who were also seen walking for the fashion maestro.

How To Rock the Monochrome Fashion?

The moment we think that the monochrome mania is a passé, a new trend sneaks in to rock the fashion world! Are you struggling to get the right look with monochrome? We surely understand that dilemma, since it’s not just about sporting the black and white combo but wearing the right cut with the right accessory and carrying it with the right attitude does the magic. So for all those pretty butterflies we show you how to rock the monochrome fashion..

  1. Suit Up

Want to brighten up that otherwise mundane day at office? Then do it in style with the super chic look by Sophie, follow the dazzling glamorized look by Kim Kardashian with matching accessories or simply play it down like the hot Angelina Jolie.

Suit Up

  1. All Black

Get the all black Michael Kors look by Tanaaz Bhatia, with those leather skinnies and chic sandals in frills. Lili Allen does it equally well exuding that oomph factor looking super elegant in that pencil skirt and plunging neckline with a matching pair of cool printed boots. You can never go wrong with the leather and boots look like Amrita Arora.

All Black11

  1. Prints

When in two minds with prints wear it like Lea Michele in a comfy playsuit (sans the accessories) or take a cue from Kajol who’s flaunting it with minimal accessories, sticking to just a statement belt and a wristlet.

Prints

  1. Shorts

Amrita Arora sports the casual yet natty look with aplomb. Rachael and Shraddha Kapoor does it well too and look cute and super chic at the same time.

Shorts22

  1. Polka Dots

Wearing polka dots can be a bit tricky in monochrome unless you do it like the talented Kangana or the sophisticated look by Amy Adams in a halter gown. When in doubt look cool with hybrid prints like SJP.

  1. Jumpsuits

The jumpsuit trend takes a new twist with wild prints on cotton or the hip combo..

Show your curves with the pencil skirts in the right mash up like Mandira or Kareena, in the perfect contours and fab paneling.

  1. Dress

  1. Pants

Whether in the traditional black and white, solid single colors, in a contrast or with a tuxedo on, the pants are the perennial fashion wear for all.
