Best dressed this week: Kangana Ranaut and Alia Bhatt

This week, saris won several votes amongst Bollywood’s leading ladies. All set for the release of her next film Manikarnika, Kangana Ranaut met fans in a shimmering pastel Tarun Tahiliani sari that’s perfect for a grand cocktail party, while Malaika Arora went with a simpler sari in a striking shade of red by Misha Lakhani. Also favouring dark hues was Vidya Balan, who made an appearance in a deep brown and rani pink Raw Mango drape. If you love soothing pastel hues, however, Alia Bhatt was the actor you needed to check out this week.

Best-dressed-this-week-Kangana-Ranaut-and-Alia-Bhatt-866x487Joined by beau Ranbir Kapoor and friends including Ranveer Singh, Karan Johar and Vicky Kaushal, Bhatt flew to Delhi this week for a very special meeting with PM Narendra Modi in an elegant Manish Malhotra kurta set that’s perfect for your next family puja. Another star who gave us major festive dressing inspiration this week was Sonam K Ahuja. Not one to blend in with her sartorial picks, the actor recently stepped out for a celebration in a Good Earth sharara set that was anything but basic. Kapoor Ahuja wore her satiny champagne-coloured sharara pants with a metallic choli, topping the combo off with a sheer kurta in a matching hue.

Among the Bollywood actors who opted for Western silhouettes, both Bhatt and Deepika Padukone went with a similar look this week. In case you missed it, neon is making quite the comeback this season, and both actors attended events recently wearing all-white outfits with shockingly bright footwear. While Bhatt launched the trailer of Gully Boy in an ivory Jonathan Simkhai number and orange sock booties, Padukone stepped out in a quirky white Kanika Goyal outfit, which she added a pop of colour to with acid coral pumps.

Overseas, the big moment of the week, of course, was 2018’s edition of the Golden Globes. Like every year, the annual awards ceremony had some of Hollywood’s favourite faces serving up some unforgettable red carpet looks. Amongst the most beautiful of the evening were Lady Gaga’s periwinkle Valentino, which matched perfectly with her new hair colour), Lupita Nyong’o’s beaded royal blue Calvin Klein gown, Saoirse Ronan’s slinky silver Gucci maxi. Catch up on all our favourite looks from the week below

Need party dressing inspiration? These celebrities will have you covered

Right in time for NYE

With a little help from the fashion folk, here’s your party style pinned down in four tribes. Whose team are you on?

 

The smooth operators

Bella-Hadid1

We may have spent the first half of the year obsessing over every permutation of plastic but for the party months, satin, in all its sensuousness, is staging a comeback. There’s the buttery and bright version that cues memories of Kate Hudson in How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days (Naomi Campbell wore an almost-identical slip dress to the CFDAs after-party). Then there’s the Barbie pink, vintage Jean Paul Gaultier rendition spotted on Bella Hadid. And let’s not forget the modern update on the material as seen on Queen Bey in ‘Everything is Love’, where a glossy Peter Pilotto pantsuit was anointed the new night-out hero.

 

The street-style set

Rosie-Huntington-Whiteley

It’s safe to say the fanny pack has severed its tourist ties and officially made the transition from micro trend to mainstay. No longer belted to the waist but casually strapped across the chest, fashion insiders have been, quite literally, keeping it close to their heart. To make it after-hours-appropriate, trade in nylon for nappa, straps for chains (cue Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s Alexander Wang number) and logos for embellishments—the It bag of the fanny phenomenon, a butterfly-laden Gucci Marmont, has our vote.

The matchmakers

Kim-Kardashian

We’ve all found ourselves in this all-too-familiar scenario: you’ve scored the perfect party pants but don’t have a top to match. Taking the stress out of styling are co-ords—yes, matching is now on the mandate. The coolest take on conscious coupling comes courtesy the Kar Jenners—Kim matched her ride with a highlighter hued two-piece and Kylie Jenner’s #mirrorfie featured a red-hot latex set. For those still loco for logos, Olivia Culpo’s Fendi find is the way to go.

The glitterati

So, here’s what’s been flashing on our feeds: Priyanka Chopra’s form-flattering gown as she arrived at Ralph Lauren’s 50th anniversary celebrations, Kendall Jenner alongside Bella Hadid in a one-shoulder Alexandre Vauthier dress and blogger Chiara Ferragni’s custom made Prada for her rehearsal dinner. What did these looks have in common? They all came covered in crystals of the splashiest kind. Our advice is to not stop at a mere smattering or trimming but go all out—there isn’t a trend more optimistic and uplifting to ring in the new year.

The sweetest pictures from Bollywood’s Diwali 2018 celebrations

All the love, light and happiness

Given that our favourite celeb crew loves to party, it should come as little surprise that the past week has played host to a series of grand Diwali shindigs, from Shah Rukh Khan’s big blowout at Mannat to Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla’s house party. And after all the party-hopping, it was time to go back to family, as A-listers took to Instagram to allow fans a peek into their homes on the auspicious eve of Diwali.

Mindful of the new regulations on the use of firecrackers, Bollywood’s best instead chose to spread the light and warmth in different ways. Alia Bhatt collaborated with a team of volunteers to feed over 500 dogs across seven cities, before winding up the night with Karan Johar and his fresh batch of ‘students’: Ananya Panday and Tara Sutaria, from the cast of Student of the Year 2. The proud daddy, himself, was spotted twinning with his toddler in coordinated Manish Malhotra kurtas. Elsewhere, celebrity It-couple Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma made for an elegant portrait in their traditional garb against the backdrop of their brightly-lit home in Mumbai.

The glamorous Bachchan clan chose to keep their celebrations family-only, and stepped outside after the Lakshmi puja to introduce young Aaradhya to the joy of sparklers. The proud mamas of the Kapoor clan, Kareena and Karisma, dolled up with their kids, with Taimur sporting a regal black kurta for the occasion. Bride-to-be Priyanka Chopra also spent some time off with her family in Mumbai before her nuptials, while Lisa Haydon ushered in some festive cheer against the glittering Hong Kong skyline. Second time parents, Mira and Shahid Kapoor snuggled up to make for a cosy picture on Instagram, and she was later spotted bonding with her brother-in-law and Bollywood debutante, Ishaan Khatter.

Scroll onwards to see how your favourite celebrities lit up the night with their families during Diwali 2018.
