Alia Bhatt’s gorgeous kurta is the perfect bridesmaid look for your BFF’s summer wedding

Simple, but oh so sexy

By ELLE team  April 17th, 2018

Hot on the promotional trail for her upcoming film Raazi, Alia Bhatt is dishing out summer looks that will go to the top of your Pinterest moodboard. And her latest turn in House of Kotwara is no exception. The Bollywood star presented the perfect look for your BFF’s summer wedding, allowing you to look sexy and chic while fulfilling bridesmaid duties without stealing attention from the bride.

Starting with that halter neckline that draws attention to sharp collar bones and Pilates-honed arms, the rich hue perfectly complements Indian skin tones. Alia’s stylist Ami Patel keeps the rest of the look simple, opting for vintage looking jewellery from Amrapali, the standard issue celebrity blowdry and traditional jootis from Needledust. Given the dramatic length of that kurta, the only thing we would have done differently would have been adding heels to the look so that the diminutive star doesn’t look dwarfed by the proportions.  

Best colours for Indian skin 

Rani pink

An Indian bride's trousseau isn't complete without this eye-popping shade, but it's just as captivating reimagined in a 50's silhouette. 

Electric blue

There's nothing demure about Rimzim Dadu's metallic masterpiece in a colour so brilliant, you can spot it from a mile away. 


A personal favourite, this shade is as polarising as wasabi nuts and Donald Trump. But look at Padma Lakshmi's caramel curves poured into chartreuse silk and tell us if you're still a hater.


To be matched with kohl-rimmed eyes and chunky accessories. 


When your outfit needs to shine as bright as your personality...  


For a star as influential as Kajol, only a shade as evocative as crimson would do.   

Burnished gold

Good for showing off Goa tans and sculpted collar bones.   


Halfway between brown and red, this autumnal shade adds warmth to the skin.
