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.
Joined 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.
