Hi my pretties!
I hope you have all been having a lovely week so far! I’ve finally managed to get my first style edit up on the blog which I’m so excited to share with you all..and those who (like me) enjoy Bollywood fashion will hopefully enjoy this post as much as I did! Now let me just start by telling you that I’m not the kind of person who loves all celebrity fashion. In fact there are very few celebrities who’s everyday fashion I adore, the main ones being: Reese Witherspoon, Taylor Swift, Kate Middleton, Miranda Kerr and Selena Gomez. But when it comes to Bollywood, I just love seeing the many varieties of outfit choices ranging from ethnic wear to western culture. Everytime I see photos of an actress stepping out in a gorgeous saree styled to perfection, I always take notes on how it’s done and try my best to incorporate aspects into my outfits when I wear a saree (which is ever so rarely to be honest).
Today, I’m doing a style edit for a look that Aliaa Bhatt wore out to a Kapoor and Sons promotion less than a week ago. She was spotted donning a gorgeous Sachin and Babi floral number that costs $450.. yes, you read that right! Anyways, I’ll be doing my best today to show you how you can style a similar outfit for a fraction of the price using brands that you have probably heard of before.. and some that may be new.
- Review – Oriental Bloom Dress
- New Look – White Slingback Pointed Heels (similar: ASOS)
- YSL – Rouge Volupte Lipstick in Nude Beige
- Colette – Stone Wrap Metal Wristwear
- OPI – Chick Flick Cherry
- Aliaa Bhatt: Sachin and Babi – Calla Dress
The Sachin and Babi Calla Dress (which you can find here) that the young actress was spotted wearing featured bright fun colours and a cute floral print. The contrast of the colours gave the dress a slightly bold look as well. Although I couldn’t find something quite as unique as that piece, this Oriental Bloom Dress by Review also features a fun floral print except on a navy background making the red print stand out well against the navy. I wasn’t able to track down where exactly Aliaa’s white heels were purchased from, but I found a pretty neat identical match from New Look for just $36.00 AUD.
Although Ami Patel, who had styled this look for Aliaa, had decided it was best to go sans accessories (from what I could gather) for this look I see no reason why I small gold metal cuff with coloured detailing could go wrong – especially this cute one from Colette. On close inspection (and by zooming in like crazy on photos) I noticed that Aliaa was wearing a nude coloured lipstick and minimal face makeup. The nude lipstick I’ve shown in this edit is the Nude Beige Rouge Volupte Lipstick by YSL which is available in many stores (including David Jones, Selfridges, Nordstorm, Sephora or YSL themselves). This particular lipstick was also listed as one of ‘The 12 Best Nude Lipsticks’ by Harper’s Bazaar, so it’s got to be something worth trying out! To finish of the look, OPI’s Chick Flick Cherry red shade should do the job just fine – it also matches perfectly with the bright red print on the dress.
I’m hoping Alia’s upcoming release, Kapoor & Sons, which she’s been promoting in India recently will turn out successfully. I myself, am crazily excited for the release of this film – maybe mostly because it features Siddharth Malhotra who I just happen to have a huge crush on since SOTY – and I can’t wait to see this film on the Sunday after it’s release on March 18th! I’ve seen many behind the scenes videos on Facebook and Instagram and I’ve got high expectations for Fawad and Siddharth’s bromance in the film. I’ve been counting down days since the trailer release so I’m keeping my fingers crossed that this will be an amazing film! I wish Alia, Sid and Fawad all the best with their soon-to-be-released film!
I hope you enjoyed this style edit and if you have any ideas for upcoming ones, please feel free comment them below or email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org .. I really do love hearing feedback, so please share your thoughts!
