The festival of lights is almost over and considering the en number of parties all week through, our celebs must be more than exhausted. From Shilpa Shetty to Aamir Khan to Sonam Kapoor; this week witnessed parties pouring from all over. And our favorite stars descended at these gala affairs’ looking nothing less than the stars they are. Most of our A-listers have the gift of looking good, no matter where they are, and what they wear. Thanks to an entire brigade of stylists and beauty gurus, our B-townies looked nothing short of fabulous, throughout this festive season.
From their haute couture to intricate designer baubles, our tinsel-townies looked like a million, more like trillion bucks. While our celebrity stylists and beauty experts did a fabulous job of putting it all together; we couldn’t help but secretly wish to steal all their outfits, at least for a day. Wondering which dresses and beauty looks had us jumping out of our seats? After a little stalking and ‘peeping’, here’s a lowdown of the looks we loved the most.
Win-win! Go Big Or Go Home: Jacqueline Fernandez
Jacqueline painted the town red in her hot red Faraz Manan number. Not only did this drop-dead-beauty embrace the color red and set the stage on fiyah, but also told her us to go big or home (at least we thought she did). Making it loud and clear, Jacqueline looked flat-out-fabulous in blow-dried (voluminous) hair and winged eye-liner, for days.
CC: Amit Thakur and Arti Nayar Bold Lips: Deepika Padukone
Let the dream girl of Bollywood and Hollywood teach you a thing or three! Yes, we aren’t ignoring the dreamy ensemble by Anamika Khanna, but Deepika stole the show with her bold, luscious red lips and classic bun with a twist. Amit Thakur worked his magic on her luscious locks while Shraddha Naik cast her beauty spell.
Can we borrow her beauty squad?
Bring In The Bright Hues: Alia Bhatt
What’s not to love?
This young blood stole our heart the moment she debuted in KJo’s blockbuster movie – Student of the Year, but coming out in this Manish Malhotra number, made us love Alia Bhatt all the more! Millennials, hope you’re taking notes from this young fashion diva!
Shimmy Effect: Sonam Kapoor
If Jason Derulo can paint the town red singing ‘ Shimmy shimmy ya, shimmy ya, shimmy yah’, then so can the fashionista of B-town. Kapoor took matters into her own hands (more like AJSK’s hands) and made jaws drop, donning this stunning number. And that blouse – Completely next-level! If you’re a risk taker like our Bollywood style beacon, then skip the boring blouses and be a complete stand-out!
Dapper Level 100: Karan Johar
When the entire men’s fraternity was sporting anything and everything black, at these Diwali parties, KJo came out and made his mark in this maroon Sherwani, by none other than – Manish Malhotra. Lesson learned: Stay away from black!
Bauble love: Kareena Kapoor Khan
In case you haven’t noticed, statement jewelry is now a thing! Proof – Kareena Kapoor Khan. If royalty approves, we approve, no questions asked! The next time you want to splurge on these accessories and have your very own Kareena moment, Shri Hari Diagems is the way to go.
Gold Is No Longer Old: Shilpa Shetty
Gold is passé, says no one. With Shilpa Shetty Kundra shining brighter than the Deepwali lights in bright golden baubles from Anmol Jewellers, we couldn’t help but give them a double – Thumbs Up! Princess Diaries: Jhanvi Kapoor
Isn’t she a vision?
Jhanvi Kapoor gives us straight off-the-runway vibes in a Manish Malhotra dreamy ensemble. Call Sridevi’s girls the new Kardashians in town or the new-gen Rhea and Sonam Kapoor; Jhanvi Kapoor can do no wrong! If not borrow, can we at least live in her wardrobe?
Nude Vibes: Sonam Kapoor
Nude – a trend which can never go off the market, ever! And Sonam is making it crystal clear. A huge shout-out to all you people who love keeping things simple, at least in the beauty department. It’s time to keep your makeup to a bare minimum and let the rest of your look do all the talking. All hail Richa Jain (MUA) and Sonam, of course!
Blue Is The New Black: Rhea Kapoor
When her darling sister is busy creating magic in B-town and internationally (Hello, Cannes), how can Rhea be left far behind? It’s no secret that Rhea is the genie behind Sonam’s show-stopper looks. So, when Rhea decides to glam up while playing the host to the crème de la crème of the industry, we knew she’d come out looking like a complete winner! Leave it to Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla to doll up Rhea in an Indo-western floral blue ensemble. Don’t you love or don’t you love it? All-White-Magic: Shahid Kapoor The only man in B-town who can prevent an all-white-outfit from falling flat on its face – Mr. Shahid Kapoor. Boys, are you paying attention?
