Kangana Ranaut's red carpet looks this year at Cannes are still weighing heavy on every aspiring Indian diva's style inspiration board.
Kangana's bold and beautiful red carpet looks are no less surprising each year and this year she has already made some iconic and unforgettable appearances at various events. However her Cannes 2019 looks have been perhaps her most ravishing and avant-garde red carpet looks so far.
And why not ? Especially since she duly kept her promise to woo the world with Indian silhouettes and textiles at the French Riviera it is no secret that she knows how to balance the best of the east with the beast of the west.
She has proved yet again that she has long been the master of versatility and conviction in her choices, whether it is her roles or her outfits.
Here are some of her best looks where she has incorporated western elements with eastern aesthetics with a classic appeal. Take a style inspiration from her right now !
Tanu Weds Manu was not just Kangana's break out film as a talent to reckon with, it was also her break out moment as a style diva.
GYPSY NEXT DOOR
She appeared in this iconic fusion of west and east in this skirt and shirt combo. The embroidered halter-neck top in vibrant hues just elevated the usual skirt- and shirt combination to a whole new level. She paired this look with dark aviators to highlight the western element of the crisp white collared shirt. A tribal coin belt at the waist added to the appeal of the gypsy meets girl next door look.
The sequel of Tanu Weds Manu found her in an even bolder avatar and two of her looks from this film radiated the bold yet feminine vibe of her feisty character Tanu.
She paired a vivid blue biker jacket with her Patiala salwar suit and went all out with a red lip and tribal detail necklace. Her curly afro style hair was as exciting as the turn of events in the crazy comedy.
Her airport style from the same film had us swooning over her feminine pink and white saree paired with the classic beige trench coat. She carried the look of the Indian girl living abroad in her marital home with elegance and sophistication.
In fact talking of Airport looks which is so integral to a star's weekly rating these days, she has developed her own style, and is often seen wearing simple neutral comfy linen and cotton sarees. Considering we are talking about Kangana there has to be an innovative style quirk there which no one would have thought of before.
RISE HIGH FLY LOW
She has often paired her sarees with brogues and we love the muted dressed down look of hers which speaks of elegance, sophistication and good taste, but none of it at the cost of comfort.
She never foregoes her smart leather bag which is usually a Hermes or a Chanel - always the best for the queen; obviously.
Another 'cool' element she has tried with the saree is the ruffled cold shoulder top, which we bet feels even cooler than it looks. This western element goes well with her saree paired with simple ballet flats and chunky studs. The minimal accessories add a subtle glow to the feminine and flirty outfit.
Yet no other outfit of hers has incorporated such starkly opposing aesthetics with so much harmony. Kudos to Kangana for bringing together elements of subtle regality in harmony with a vintage indifference to the fashion police, in her Cannes appearance in a gold Kanjivaram with an embellished corset and vibrant silk gloves. Forget the Miss World and Miss Universe divas, here is someone out to conquer the multiverse of her multiple avatars as actor, director & style icon with her versatility and poise.
Dare to outdo her...?
Ah! well , you don't really have to once she has inspired you to create your own fusion ensembles.
