Bollywood Is Increasingly Gravitating Towards Whites & Metallics & We’re Loving it


All thanks to Alia Bhatt’s wedding trousseau, Pinterest has lost all its charm. No one’s scouring the app for inspiration anymore. Her white saree has seemingly ordained the great whites to be the new fashion bible for multiple A-listers. Safe to say, Bollywood is onto its next expedition – The Great White Phenomenon. And not only whites but also metallics and crystals. Their mélange is a pleasant concoction whether it’s saris, floor-length evening gowns, slip dresses, corsets or even a pantsuit.

Here’s how celebrities are depicting this trend in their own distinctive ways:

Celebrity stylist Tanya Ghavri went with this Faraz Manan set for Sara at this year’s IIFA Awards. With an old-school Nizami charm to it, the high-neck peplum flounce and the scalloped hem complemented the sharara pants effortlessly. Unexpected choice but definitely a frontrunner.

Ananya went along the good ol’ route of the iconic, sequin encrusted white saree with petal feather edges by Manish Malhotra. The styling was minimal with a pair of pearl drop earrings by Narayan Jewels serving as the perfect accessory. Tanya Ghavri strikes yet again.

Sanya Malhotra

Firstly, wow. Sukriti Grover chose a Shantanu & Nikhil corset column gown with a cascading drape from the waist. Seems like the inspiration for the same was the construction of an antariya—a lower body garment worn in ancient India. The embellishment on the corset was a work of art with all the embroidered intricacies and a tasteful execution.

Jacqueline Fernandez

This show-stopping sari by Falguni Shane Peacock was stylist Chandini Whabi’s pick for Jacqueline. She styled it with a top bun and nude lip making the sheer white sari the focal point of the look.

Digital creator extraordinaire Kusha Kapila was styled by Ayesha Amin Nigam for IIFA’s green carpet. The ITSOM gown with the chandelier shimmy tassels and the art-deco inspired design gave it a much-needed glam update and elevated the look overall.
