We went gaga over her OTT blouse that flaunted her décolletage yet elevated her royalty.
Our Desi Girl is already winning hearts with her back-to-back gorgeous looks, however, this one holds a special place for her and Nick. Priyanka wore this “Spring Blossom” inspired skirt featuring tiny organza and chiffon flowers encrusted with bugle beads and intricately woven skirt that took us back to the good ol’ spring romance. She teamed it up with a full-sleeves lace embellished blouse detailed with floral and beaded charm. She further layered her outfit with a coordinated sheer dupatta to cast a spell on her beau.

Padmavat actor has surely evolved in her style, from boho Indian to classy lady on our radar as she showed up in a middle parted neat slick bun, statement gold jhumkis and a perfect ensemble to swing breezily.
Our fashion connoisseur was recently crushing on all things lace and shimmer, advocating the cause of being a true-blue feminist. However, she sported quite a scintillating mix of saree with a fur embellished jacket that turned heads online and of course with a whopping viewership offline as well.

We just can’t take our eyes off of her half-half designer velvet saree with such overpowering colors in wine and royal blue that it almost floors us down before the glamorous beauty. Kajol steals the spotlight as she drapes this extravagant saree and rocks the party. Paired with a royal blue velvet laden blouse, she accessorized her ensemble with a statement choker necklace embellished with exotic stones and pulled off a slick neat bun and nude lips.

Detailed with hand embroidery finely encompassing the length and breadth of her ecstatic ensemble, Kajal shines bright in her muga silk silhouette layered with a scalloped sheer dupatta with coordinated embroidery to emanate dreamy vibes in the fable land.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan
Our Kajrare re girl surely knows how to amp up her ethnic wardrobe with just the right amount of glitter and surreal shades of romance lacing her hourglass figure line. Designer curated sombre blush pink cocktail anarkali dress woven with intricate beads and shimmer, Aishwarya kept her overall look rather simple and sober for her visit to the orphanage during Christmas.
