On her way to global domination, between her show-stopping appearances at the Met Gala and Cannes Film Festival red carpet—Deepika Padukone somehow manages to wow us with her ethnic looks and give us some bookmark worthy traditional ensembles every now and then. All you need to do is stalk Deepika and her stylist Shaleena Nathani on Instagram for a quick dose of Diwali inspiration. Here’s how she’s worn the most popular Indian silhouettes lately.
The sari: For a day party, stick with solid hues like pink or a pastel shade, and let your accessories do the talking. Padukone added glam to her pink Sabyasachi sari with a chunky choker set.
#ELLEStyleTip: Feeling experimental? Choose a printed version like Deepika’s floral Sabyasachi sari for your next card party.
The lehenga: If you’re one for extravagant ensembles, a lehenga is the perfect pick for you. Deepika’s yet another glittering Abu Jani and Sandeep ensemble, not only made a statement but also gave us inspiration for our next OTT Diwali outfit.
#ELLEStyleTip: For more sombre outings, tone down the colour. Opt for sleek, straight hair and subtle smokey eyes.
