We love spotting celebs at airports, as we believe it’s a good way to keep a check on the latest trends and also learn a few tricks on how to style the basics in a way that can instantly elevate a look. Deepika Padukoneand Kangana Ranaut are two Bollywood celebs known for their super-cool and comfortable travel styles, but Aishwarya RaiBachchan, not so much. It won’t be an understatement to say that the Ae Dil Hai Mushkil star has given us really bizarre looks in the past, but this time it’s different.
Seen returning from Australia with her daughter Aaradhya Bachchan, the former beauty queen picked up a smart sweatshirt from Monisha Jaising with gold embossed rock n’ roll written on it. She paired it with simple black jeans, and Nike sneakers and complemented it with a black Gucci handheld bag.

We love the touch of the blazing red pout and those cat-eye sunglasses. She did good!
Meanwhile, Deepika Padukone aced her fashion game in basics. The white top (from Purple Paisley) and blue jeans (From Zara) combo is a classic and we love the way she casually shrugged on that denim jacket to add oomph to her too-cool-for-school look.
Sara Ali Khan is not exactly known for experimental fashion, but on her father Saif Ali Khan’s birthday, the budding fashionista took everybody by surprise when she arrived at the party venue in an ivory white bardot neckline top, which she wore well with a pair of lace hot pants. But more than the outfit, her traffic-stopping thigh-high boots stole the show. We are not a big fan of the open-toe, distressed denim footwear but Sara wore it well and we have a feeling that this young lady just might start a new trend in Bollywood and, of course, among the fashionistas.
Her make-up was kept simple with a soft, dewy sheen and a pastel pink lip shade, while her hair was slightly scrunched up to give out that lovely tousled mane look or if you might call it, out-of-bed look.

There’s no denying that she looked radiant.
But it was not just her boots which caught the attention of the fashion connoisseurs at the party. Kareena Kapoor Khan’s nude lips also became a talking point. Now, it might have looked good on her in person but going by the photos, it didn’t impress us much. In fact, it just added age to her face and the bronze make-up didn’t help either, it simply looked like she suffered sunburns.
The ever-stylish Jacqueline Fernandez, who is busy promoting her upcoming film ‘A Gentleman’, is giving us some major fashion goals. If her recent appearances are anything to go by, then the Sri Lankan beauty, who will be seen opposite Siddharth Malhotra in her next, has been going big and bold with her sartorial choices. From rocking chic and retro to showing us how to wear sheer and lace, the actor could give others a run for their money.
Promoting her film, Fernandez was recently seen setting the temperatures soaring in sheer lingerie from La Perla, a black corset and custom shorts from Purple Paisley. Keeping her look subtle yet sultry, styled by Leepakshi Ellawadi, Fernandez kept her hair messy and tied into a high bun. Keeping her make-up otherwise understated, she chose to highlight her beautiful eyes by giving it a winged effect. She chose a pair of Jimmy Choo shoes to complete her look.
Next, she chose a full-sleeved, navy blue, lace top to go with a shimmery, sequinned red skirt, both from Saloni. In a stark contrast to her previous look, Fernandez seems to have gone complete bling, with her eye make-up and silver pointed heels from Christian Louboutin. Styled by Anita Shroff Adjania, she left her wavy hair open.
Actress Ileana Dcruz will be seen as the showstopper for designer Nancy Luharuwalla of the brand De Belle at the forthcoming Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2017 (LFW).
The designer will showcase her new pret collection Allure by De Belle. It will be showcased at the LFW stage on August 20 at the St. Regis here.
“Allure is simple, chic and elegant and is inspired from the rise of being a morden Indian woman. Ileana represents modern women of today as she is confident, smart and carries herself beautifully. Her persona captures the ethos of the collection perfectly,” Luharuwalla said in a statement.
According to the designer, her new range boasts of neat cuts and stylish ensembles. Inspired from an early era of 1950s, the collection is in sync with the forecast of a clean and fresh mood in fashion.
The shapes are unusual, with a plethora of styles with long sleeves jackets with intricate yet bold motifs dominating the look. It includes trench coats and short jackets with puffed and stuffed shoulder, highlighted with oxidized embroidery showcasing the rise of feminism.
The collection erupts in a burst of colours like burgundy, mint green, peach and rust.
Luharuwalla said: “We have added contemporary and futuristic elements in the collection to evolve an aesthetic sensibility that appeals to all cross sections.”
When it comes to non-fussy, girl-next-door fashion, Alia Bhatt takes the cake in Bollywood. We love how she adds oomph to a basic outfit with the right accessories or how she comes up with innovative ways to style her casuals. Also, denim is something she does really well. Take the instance when she attended Filmfare magazine editor Jitesh Pillai’s birthday party in a light and peachy lace yoke dress from Zadig and Voltaire that she paired with a denim jacket from Vero Moda. Acing her denim game once again is the Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya actor in a Roberto Cavalli jacket.
Bhatt was spotted at the airport keeping it casual yet chic in this floral print creation from Cavalli’s Spring 2017 collection. We like the way she styled it with a pair of simple denims, a pastel blue top, white sneakers and a yellow Anya Hindmarch bag.
Muted make-up and a soft pink pout elevated her look instantly. We think her styling is simple yet effective and she did look good.
However, we can’t say the same about Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. Earlier this year, we spotted the same jacket on The Ae Dil Hai Mushkil star on her return to India from the Cannes 2017 Film Festival.
Anushka Sharma has been experimenting with her sartorial choices a lot these days. From minting ethnic magic to giving fashion goals in cool casuals, the diva’s style chart has certainly gone up a few notches. We witnessed her sporting quite a few stylish looks for the promotions of her film Jab Harry Met Sejal and a beautiful Ritu Kumar dress topped our list. We believe the 29-year-old did perfect justice to the boho-chic outfit.
Interestingly, Shraddha Kapoor was also caught wearing the same dress at the screening of Begum Jaan earlier this year. Steal a glance at how the two actresses channeled their looks.
ANUSHKA SHARMA’S SASSY STYLE GAME
Sharma caught on the cold-shoulder printed dress with a lot of sass and spunk. Accenting it right with a pair of heels from Aquazzura, she brought an edge of panache to her look. Keeping the hippie style alive, she complemented it with a pair of basic hoops from Urban Outfitters. Her braided hair, which was left open, was quite a delightful change and it gelled well with her outfit!
SHRADDHA KAPOOR’S EASY BREEZY LOOK
Kapoor gave the dress a slightly casual twist. Complementing it with tan sandals and a matching bag, she tied her middle-parted hair in a ponytail. The actress styled it with a natural make-up and a soft pink lip shade.
Saris and Indian women share a magical bond, a relationship so strong that this favourite Indian outfit still continues to fascinate and intrigue them. Kanjeevaram, Chanderi, Banarasi, Tussar, Jamdani, Khadi, Tant, you will find at least one variety holding a place of honour in their wardrobes. The obsession with the six-yard wonder has not changed but the ways of draping a sarisurely has. From butterfly style to mermaid style, we are now spoiled for choice and a lot of it has got to do with Bollywood celebs paving the way for us.
Recently, Kalki Koechlin was seen attending a press meet in Delhi to talk about her upcoming film Jia Aur Jia and she picked up a striped sari from Maku Textiles. We love how she wore it with a striped black and white boat neck blouse.
It’s not easy to carry stripes the way she did and it is kind of inspiring. The Margarita, with a Straw actor rounded out her look with blue tinted Lennon glasses, a pair of gold jhumkas, muted make-up with a soft pink lip shade and a neat bun. We think she looked lovely.
When it comes to dressing up, Soha Ali Khan is a true royal. The actor who has an incredible sense of style, bordering on chic and elegance is expecting her first child with husband Kunal Khemu and in the process, giving maternity fashion goals to all those expecting mothers out there. We feel the mom-to-be’s style statement is as cute as a button and right now her posts on Instagram are reaching the peak of adorable. Considering how her sister-in-law Kareena Kapoor Khan created an uproar in the country with maternity fashion, Soha is doing quite well for herself.
To decide if you like her sense of style better than Kareena you will first have to go through these photos which she shared on her Instagram:
Who says you can’t wear bodycon dresses when you are pregnant? We love her baby bump in this grey number which she layered beautifully with a white blazer. The mini bag in a matching shade adds a nice touch to her look.
The last time we saw a Bollywood celeb making quite an impact in a Zimmermann outfit was Priyanka Chopra during her famous meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi at Berlin in a beautiful floral knee-length number. Sure, the Quantico star received a lot of flak for her choice of dress but we loved it. This time around, it’s a different dress from the Australian luxury brand that has caught our eyes and it was flaunted by none other than the budding fashionista of Bollywood, Jhanvi Kapoor. One look at her and you would know that it’s actually true when we say that she created quite a wave with her lovely ruffled appearance.
The celebrity kid chose the pastel print silk ruffle detail dress with an asymmetrical hemline for an outing to celebrate her mom Sridevi’s birthday. We think she pulled it off well with a pair of metallic grey ankle strap heels and a tiny beige Celine bag. But we wish she would have added a little more zing to her look.
Last seen in Raabta, Kriti Sanon is now gearing up for the release of her upcoming film Bareilly Ki Barfi. While she is on a promotional spree along with co-stars Aayushmann Khurrana and Rajkumar Rao, she has also managed to serve us up some fashion inspiration on the side. Going by her recent appearances, the 27-year-old actress seems to have opted to go quirky and boho-chic and, boy, are we impressed! From gypsy princess to nature warrior, Sanon is embracing unconventional prints and how!
The actor looked absolutely beautiful in a printed crop top with cut bell-sleeves and a pair of navy blue palazzo pants from the house of Pallavi Jaipur. Styled by Sukriti Grover, Sanon kept her hair mid-parted and poker straight and completed her look with minimal accessories and strappy flats. Did she give off a gypsy princess vibe? Yes, she did.
She had also opted for a printed Egyptian Khadi dress from Nautanky by Nilesh Parashar. With splashes of teal, purple, yellow and red on the dress, she looked like a nature warrior in the beautiful green number. Styled by Grover, she kept her make-up fresh and minimal, but the beautiful statement neck-piece from Minerali Store was lost among the colours of her outfit. Sanon opted for juttis from Needledust to go with her outfit.
