‘Tis the season for bling and here’s why

Bollywood's obsession with sparkle continues

Sequins and the holiday season is a combination that never gets old. As the clock strikes midnight on November 1, we pop out of our fall attire and put on that shiny new dress that’s been eagerly awaiting for its annual moment in the spotlight. Bollywood’s leading ladies agree, and we have proof.

From Kareena Kapoor Khan’s backless silver sequinned Michael Costello gown to Sonakshi Sinha’s stunning blue number by Alexander Terekhov, there is no dearth of shimmering outfits to take inspiration from to add to your shopping cart. Go through our gallery and you’ll be prepared to look your absolute best (and shiniest) for all the upcoming parties in your calendar.

Halpern Studio is a go-to to bring high-octane glamour to any occasion, and Ananya Panday's ensemble stands as a perfect example.  We love the body-hugging silhouette and matching metallic heels. Don’t miss out on the floor-sweeping glitter train, it surely amps up the drama.
Ditch your little black dress for Sonakshi Sinha's embellished Alexander Terekhov number (added bonus: its maxi length will keep you warm on those night outs because let's admit it: we all feel cold in our #OOTD from time to time). Sleek hair and smoky eyes are just the right companions.
Go bold or go home, a style lesson taught by none other than Janhvi Kapoor. Wearing a feisty Julien Macdonald outfit, the actor shows off her toned midriff and love for scarlet. Plus messy waves, bronze makeup and a killer attitude.
Bling, body-con, blue and Bollywood's beloved. Kareena Kapoor Khan is definitely a sucker for glittery outfits (not that we're complaining). The style icon looked incredible in this Raisa Vanessa number, elevated to the next level with mighty shoulder pads and a thigh-high slit.
Yes, there's certainly a pattern going around with all these midnight blue attires showing up on our Instagram feeds. Alia Bhatt, decked in Ralph Lauren, is no stranger to this trend either. The actor pairs the outfit with contrasting subtle make-up.
If you shy away from plunging necklines and shimmer overload, Kriti Sanon, wearing Zara Umrigar, is here to tell you otherwise. More is more, so couple it with matching earrings and a confident strut.
Sequins may or may not be every girl’s best friend, but it’s undoubtedly right up Kareena Kapoor Khan’s alley. Rocking a backless Michael Costello gown, she knows how to pull off a sparkling outfit better than anyone.
Raise the temperature with a glittering figure-hugging get-up, just like Jacqueline Fernandez in Yousef Al Jasmi. Featuring a one-shoulder sleeve, high neck and a flash of legs, there isn’t a better suited ensemble out there to make a fierce statement.
In a sea of silver and azure looks, Karisma Kapoor proves that fuschia-purple is the route to take. In a splendid Prabal Gurung gown, Karisma gives us plenty of cues to branch out with our colour palette—a definite way to stand out from the crowd.
