Sara Ali Khan, Deepika Padukone, Alia Bhatt: 6 times Bollywood proved black is apt for ethnic wear
No orange, no pink and no yellow! Black will forever be the new black and Bollywood’s choice of this shade stands testimony to that. They might be experimenting with different shades, but a black outfit never goes out of style, and the fashion industry knows it all too well. And if it’s about ethnic wear, black truly stands the test of time.
In the past few months, several Bollywood celebrities have played with shades of black and especially, when they’re sporting lehengas. While a lehenga in itself is a graceful attire, it becomes all the more regal when it’s in black.
Wondering how you can try your hands at black lehengas? Well, Bollywood beauties have shelled out several goals at that.
Here, take a look at some celebrities who have proven black is apt when it comes to traditional wear:
Katrina, who was obsessing over floral print during the promotion of Bharat, chose a gorgeous black lehenga for the premiere of her film held in Mumbai. While her dupatta and skirt were adorned with pretty and colourful flowers, Katrina finished off her look with a full-sleeved black blouse.
Sara Ali Khan
Right when Sara kickstarted the promotions of her film last year, the actor had chosen a stunning lehenga. It was a mix of glitter and floral, and if anything, it’s a beautiful piece that is sure to make you fall in love with black.
While Katrina and Sara’s outfits are like floral dreams coming true, one can find them too heavy for some occasions. So if you plan to go a little light, Mrunal Thakur’s recent choice comes to your rescue. The actor, who recently graced the screen in Super 30, coupled a black sleeveless blouse, a skirt and a dupatta which had floral patterns in gold. Her look can perhaps be a definition of minimalist fashion.
Deepika’s fashion choices need no introduction, but after her marriage, when she had to attend a couple of other functions, the actor put on her best foot forward and set trends after trends. For Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas’ wedding reception in Mumbai, Deepika played with the eternal combination of black and gold and well, what a game at that! A perfect blend of glitter and grace, Deepika’s outfit is sure a love letter to the evergreen shade.
For anyone acquainted with Alia Bhatt’s choices, they’d know how wonderful she is at trying new styles. In November last year, Alia turned heads when she went all traditional and chose an absolute stunning lehenga in black. While the lehenga was plain and pretty, it was the dupatta that added all the shine and how!
While the actors have a fascination for striking outfits in black, Kriti upped the style stakes when she decided to add an interesting spin to her lehenga. The actor, earlier this year, chose a sparkling lehenga and coupled it with a black long coat. Mixing modernity and tradition, Kriti’s outfit, too, is one that deserves your attention.
