When it comes to fashion, it always starts and ends with our very own Bollywood. Celebrities, especially actresses are constantly under the scanner when it comes to their sartorial choices. We examine some of the best looks of 2014 and bring to you the highlights of Bollywood fashion of past year. From Aishwarya Rai Bachchan to Alia Bhatt, read on to know when and how they cut a stylish figure and impressed fashion critics with ease.
Starting with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, the yummy mummy has beautifully managed to silence her critics who spent all their time gossiping and complaining about her pregnancy weight gain. The lady is back in shape and looked absolutely fantastic in champagne-coloured Roberto Cavalli fishtail off-shoulder gown that she wore for the red carpet at Cannes. Though she gave ample of stunning appearances both in western and Indian looks in 2014, the one in black structured shirt dress and knee-high boots accompanied with a stylish hair-do won her accolades. Bachchan bahu is back with a bang.
Priyanka Chopra is truly a diva and she hardly fails to impress when it comes to fashion. She looks a fashion icon even in her travelling avatar. Be it a white cropped top and skirt look by Alexander McQueen or an tangy orange number by Toni Maticevski, Priyanka managed to look drop-dead gorgeous in all her outfits. But Priyanka look breathtaking in black lacy gown with deep plunging neckline and thigh-high slit that she wore for an award night. Chandelier earrings and black stilettos completed her look.
Tall and sexy Deepika Padukone can even carry a dress that made of gunny bag with élan. It’s always a delight to see her and she is one actress that’s always best dressed. In the past year she gave us various looks that impressed us to a tee. From short dresses to gown to skirts to ripped jeans to sarees, Deepika gave a lot of sightings but the one that takes the cake is her red saree look. Looking every bit elegant, Deepika wore a bright red saree by Sabyasachi Mukherjee teamed with orange blouse, huge gold jhumkas, a pair of mojris and a stylish clutch. Miss Padukone also carried a simple pink Atsu top and black skirt look with aplomb as she painted her lips in vibrant purple shade. The lip colour is a hard one to pull off but Deepika managed to carry it the best.
Sonam Kapoor is synonym to fashion and believe it or not, she is the one who made our bollywood actress more style conscious. The girl who has an impeccable style sense loves to experiment and this is one thing that sets her apart. Be it her black Elie Saab Couture gown look or brilliant red Tarun Tahiliani sari gown appearance, Sonam didn’t disappoint a bit. But her memorable look of 2017 would be the powder pink dhoti saree by her favourite designer Anamika Khanna that she wore to Cannes. The delicate lace dhoti saree paired with heavily embellished blouse and a stunning choker made her a fashion winner of the past year.
Talking about fashion and leaving behind Kangna Ranaut is so not done. The girl known for her high-end fashion style gave us some of the most stunning looks of the year. Be it a sheer ox-blood red burberry top or the Anju Modi kurti and tulle skirt, Kangna has managed to look every bit fashionistas. An outfit that needs a special mention is a metallic grey skirt with detailing that she paired with a simple white blouse that caught ample attention of fashion critics. Our pick will always be the bright royal blue, gold and fuschia Sanjay Garg lehenga that Kangna wore for a Diwali bash held at Bachchan’s house. A small bindi, simple bun, flats, a Dior bag and a blue dupatta complete her look. Though very simple, this lehenga look was one of the best that came from fashionista Kangna.
Begum Kareena Kapoor Khan didn’t give us too much of sightings this year. Whatever little we saw of her was great though. Kareena’s blingy copper colour with same shade sequined choli was a good traditional option for a wedding reception. Orange lips and gold chandelier earrings and a neat bun completed her look. She also gave us bohemian look in tank top and maxi skirts a couple of times but her best one would be the white Tarun Tahiliani anarkali look. A beautiful hair-do and bright red lips and diamond solitaire earrings added charm to her look.
Baby face Alia Bhatt has emerged as the new fashion icon of youth in 2017. Be it a Dior dress, a Prabal Gurung blue gown, a Manish Malhotra white and gold lehenga or tank dress by Natasha Dalal, Alia managed to pull all her looks effortlessly. But her best would be the Rahul Mishra black and white top that she paired with palazzos, side swept hair-do and pink lips. Alia looked super gorgeous and is now an instant hit with young girls who have been following her style blindly.
