Hey there Peeping Moon readers, we are back with our weekend special fashion segment- Moonwalk featuring a festive twist!
This Diwali, our tinsel town celebs gave us festive fashion and we are drowning in all this sartorial goodness. Some divas and dapper dudes looked absolutely patakha while some were a disappointing phuski bomb!
So the rules of this festive edit are very simple. Instead of numbers, we have categorized our celebs by various bombs and crackers. The highest category being the Atom bomb is basically a bullseye. Following the Atom bomb we have Lakshmi bomb and Sutli bombs which are as good as an Atom but missed a perfect 10 by some points. Lavangi patakhas and phuljhadis are those that made an effort but couldn’t make a lasting impression and we don’t have to tell you what Phuski bombs are (quite self-explanatory, aren't they?)! Ready? Let’s check it out!
VIRAT KOHLI AND ANUSHKA SHARMA
Virushka was a ravishing treat to our sore eyes in ensembles from Sabyasachi. Anushka put on a show of colours with her intricately embroidered lehenga and encrusted jewels from the designers' collection. Giving a perfect contrast to Nushki’s look, Virat opted for a toned-down and subtle ensemble from Sabyasachi. A crisp white asymmetrical kurta with red pocket square and gold buttons was all that he needed to stand out along with his better half.
THE ROYAL PATAUDIS FT SAIF ALI KHAN, KAREENA KAPOOR KHAN AND TAIMUR ALI KHAN
Power couple Kareena and Saif along with tiny Tim opted for a fuss-free and regal look for this year’s festivities. Bebo looked ravishing as always in this printed Good Earth lehenga that she paired with turquoise blue dupatta and an encrusted neckpiece from Shri Ram Hari Ram Jewellers. The chhote Nawabs looked every bit dapper in their custom Raghavendra Rathore couture. Saif twined with Kareena in a printed blue kurta paired with a koti and pink pocket square, while the little munchkin stole our breath away in an olive green koti and cream kurta.
Karan and his blingy Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla ensemble lit up our Diwali and we are not getting over this look anytime soon!
Marathi mulgi Shraddha was a breathtaking vision in her mother’s traditional Paithani saree. Gold temple jewellery was the perfect shringaar to go with this look. With blended smokey eyes, pink lips, minuscule bindi and a gajra braided bun, she took our breath away.
SHAHID KAPOOR AND MIRA RAJPUT
Shahid and along with her better half, Mira made some heads turn at the gala with their ravishing looks. She looked like a patakha in a sequined blouse and ruffled drape from the label Jade while Shahid complemented his wifey in a serene pastel kurta and pyjama from Kunal Rawal.
DULQUER SALMAAN AND AMAL SUFIYA
Dulquer and his wife, Amal Sufiya were dressed to kill and we are awe-struck indeed! DQ stole our heart away with his Jodhpuri pants and band gala while Amal dazzled in a bridal red off shouldered lehenga.
Malaika hit us right in the feels with her boho look in these separates by Anamika Khanna paired with danglers by Apala. The crop top’s embellished neck detailing with tassels till her waist added oodles of drama to the outfit while a printed jacket gave a nice contrast.
Rakul paved way for the season’s festivities in an elegant ethnic number from label Faabiiana. An encrusted chocker by Tyaani added to the regality of her look. With a radiant glam, nude pout and a classy hairdo, she was our chic on fleek!
YOUNG GUNS – JANHVI KAPOOR, SHANAYA KAPOOR, ANANYA PANDAY AND SARA ALI KHAN
These pathakha kudis surely took off like a speeding rocket on our list. Take a look at their ensembles.
Janhvi brought in oodles of shimmers, bling and embellishments with her pastel Manish Malhotra lehenga while cousin Shanaya was a vision in a red embellished lehenga by designer Rahul Mishra. Ananya brought a pop of colour to the gala with her off shouldered neon lehenga from Amit Aggarwal and Sara opted for a quintessential Indian look in a peplum kurti by Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla
SHILPA SHETTY KUDRA
Shilpa grabbed some serious attention with her ruffled and printed saree teamed up with a boho belt from label Ridhi Mehra. A dainty green chocker by Goenka gave a perfect contrast to her attire.
DAPPER MEN- VICKY KAUSHAL AND ARJUN KAPOOR
Check out our dapper men winning the ethnic game fair and square.
Vicky amped up the josh of the soiree with his dapper looks in a sherwani set by Shantanu and Nikhil while Arjun looked suave in his teal threadwork ethnic separates from label Kunal Rawal.
Sonakshi dazzled the night sway with her scintillating royal blue Falguni Shane Peacock lehenga. Minimal accessories, blended smokey eyes and soft romantic curls added on to the glamour of her look.
Here’s another look sported by our beloved Sona for the season’s festivities. Sinha’s toga saree from Arpita Mehta hit us right in the feels!
Karisma made them stop and stare with her ravishing red Sabyasachi saree featuring delicate embroidery. That subtle blouse with a fancy back surely accentuated the look of her drape. Statement-making jhumkas from the designer’s collection perfectly accessorized her six yards. With a radiant glam and a braided bun, she took our breath away!
SONAM KAPOOR AHUJA
Sonam’s look in Anamika Khanna was a tad bit overwhelming for our taste. She has already sported this look before and did not bring anything new to the table that would make us go WOW! Also, going overboard with accessories dint help her case either. We usually love her bold and quirky sartorial choices, however, we wish she could have chosen something else.
All board for the sequined Manish Malhotra drape but sadly in Tara’s case, her blouse was a letdown. What do you feel about her look?
We have mixed feelings about Katrina’s bridal red Sabyasachi lehenga. It was too simple for the occasion and our taste as well. Also, we have seen her sport this look earlier. Had she perfectly accessorized this look, it could have given different results. You need to break the mould girl!
okay, no comments!
Well, this ends our festive edit for the season. See you next week with a bigger and bolder list!
