October was big month in fashion, as we saw the leading ladies of Bollywood adorn some of the most stunning outfits ever seen.

Diwali 2017 was all about heavily embroidered fabrics, luscious silks and uniquely draped dupattas.

Here are our top 5 picks from the festive season – disclaimer: some of these are fit for a bride!

Sonam Kapoor

This unique colour combination is so on point, I love the intricate embroidery all over the lehenga and blouse – something that Abu Jani & Sandeep Khosla are known for. Sonam’s hair with the gajra is also the perfect touch to this traditional look. This entire ensemble could definitely make for an off-beat wedding day option for a prospective bride-to-be.

The “other” Kapoor Sisters


Sridevi has definitely passed on her good looks and amazing fashion sense to her two daughters: Jhanvi and Khusi Kapoor. Manish Malhotra seems to be a household name for the family, as they’re 95% of time wearing a beautiful outfit by the designer. This Diwali was no different.

I love the both the pastel and fluro shades and the unique blouse styles – definitely reception worthy!

Dia Mirza

I personally love Dia’s style – it’s always so classy and colourful. But I do find that her stock standard anarkalis and kurta suits can sometimes make her look a bit aged. This is another reason why I loved this Masaba Gupta printed silk lehenga that she opted for this Diwali. It’s fun and sassy!

I like the way that Dia has draped her dupatta, it adds a subtle sense of modesty and is also a refreshing change to the typical side drape.

Alia Bhatt

Alia never fails to please with her fashion choices, they’re always so fresh and youthful. This Manish Malhotra Banarsilehenga is no different. I love the simplicity of this entire look – it would be perfect for a mehndi or sangeet event.

Kareena Kapoor

“WOWWWWW” is all that I could manage when these pictures of the begum and nawaab surfaced on social media. This TarunTahilianisharara is so exquisite, and paired with the emerald green jewellery it creates the ultimate royal look. The off-white shade provides the perfect balance to the entire look which could have otherwise been a bit OTT (over the top).

Ladies, you should definitely consider switching the standard lehenga or anarkali for a sharara at your next event. The silhouette is to die for.
