With the Dior show happening in Maximum City for the very first time, to the NMACC grand opening event all in the same week, the entire global glitterati has descended upon India, serving the best of fashion. Certainly, you must have scrolled past a roster of glammed-up looks on Instagram the past week, just like us. From Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli’s striking appearances at the Dior show in Mumbai breaking the internet to Deepika Padukone retreating to her signature Sabyasachi sari and a sleek bun look– there is a lot to unfold. Key takeaway on the mood this week? Black-tie dress code, evening glam and a dash of the cosy day out in London fit.
At the NMACC, which was likened to the Met Gala of India, saw everyone from Zendaya and Tom Holland to Emma Chamberlain in Rahul Mishra taking the red carpet. Deepika Padukone took the carpet in an embroidered Anamika Khanna pantsuit that came with an attached cape. Meanwhile Priyanka Chopra opted for a sheer and sequin gown, and Kriti Sanon took her spot in a fiery all-red look from Valentino.
Earlier this week, stars got in gear in preparation for the big nights. Look into Anushka Sharma and Deepika Padukone’s contrasting interpretations for the same sports event held recently. Anushka Sharma attended the Indian Sports Honours in a royal violet shaded gown from Toni Maticevski’s eponymous label. While her slit gown stood out on its own, Sharma served up a master lesson on elevating her look using elegant pieces of jewellery. Encrusted earpieces, delicate rings and bejewelled footwear, all conjured up to make a head-turning ensemble. Whereas Deepika Padukone is concerned, the actor might as well be doubled up as a poster girl for Sabyasachi. Captioned “Keeping it classic…,” Padukone draped a black Sabyasachi sari with rustic gold embroidery on the borders.
Overlapping with evening wear, Jahnvi Kapoor and Rashmika Mandanna proved that a statement sparkly dress is guaranteed to make you feel like the centre of attention. Glimmering at every step, Jahnvi Kapoor’s bling gown by Irth is sure to rival the disco ball on any night out. For an awards night, Rashmika Mandanna took a similar approach in a stunning black body-hugging look from London-based designer David Koma. The silhouette was decorated with crystal embroidered panelled patterns embellished to her gown. However, if you are looking for something statement worthy sans the glitter, you might want to consider Kylie Jenner’s latest look custom-made by Maison Margiela in a smoky grey shade. Even though it’s hard to look past the dramatic bareback, it is the long sleeves extended to include attached gloves that caught our attention.
