Beauties in black
Black is one colour that usually should not be worn during festive and auspicious days, if superstitions are to be believed. But rules are meant to be broken! To stand out this festive season, bring out all your 50 shades of black and look like a sultry goddess. To get you inspired, we break down the looks of three celebs who worked the ethnic black look like gifted artists with a fascinating foresight.
Madhuri Dixit This outfit defines grace and elegance. Embroidery on the waist and sleeves keeps the outfit interesting and makes the waist look smaller. The big gold border at the bottom adds the wow factor to the otherwise simple outfit. Since the neckline is simple, don’t be afraid to pile on neckpieces on an elegant outfit like this one.
Bipasha Basu Sultry and beautiful, Bipasha Basu gets it right in a black lehenga. You can break your entire black look by wearing a different colour dupatta. To emulate this look, wear coloured jewellery in red and greens for it to stand out from the black. A classic red bindi with red lips is perfect for this look.
Sonam Kapoor Black and gold is one of the most stunning combinations. If you are going for this much coveted combo, opt for a sheer black blouse with a gold embroidered lehenga like Sonam and add a plain black silk dupatta to it. For a traditional Rajasthani look, wear uncut chokers, pile on cuffs and bangles and add a borla or a mang-tikka.
