Actors Anushka Sharma and Alia Bhatt have been champions of subtle classics, since the start of their acting career. From basic denims to relaxed dresses, the actors effortlessly master the girl-next-door vibe.
On Saturday, the two were spotted together at an event on International Customs Day in Mumbai, channelling a relaxed yet traditional-wear mood in twirl-worthy Anita Dongre anarkalis. If you’re done with the heavy silk and embellished Indian outfits but still have commitments on your calendar that demand ethnic wear, these two ensembles make the perfect wardrobe choice.
While Alia aced the subtle-meets-sweet look, Anushka embraced an intense yellow anarkali set flawlessly. Take a closer look at Alia’s monochrome anarkali, which was for the more trend-driven dresser, and Anushka’s monochromatic, yesteryear chic anarkali set.
Take your inspiration from Alia’s anarkali, embroidered all over with floral motifs. While the black and ivory ensemble featured subtle gold detailing, a dramatic flare and full-length sheer sleeves, the material seemed light and breezy — a welcome change from the heavily embellished outfits spotted on celebrities in recent months.
Alia went with minimal accessories and opted for silver jhumkas from Amrapali and a tiny black bindi with her top-to-bottom-embroidered ensemble, which the star wore without a dupatta. She kept her beauty look simple with sleek eyeliner, pink lips, dewy make-up and blow-dried hair.
Anushka’s flattering, free-flowing yellow anarkali, by the couturier, painted a pretty picture. Her non-boring ensemble, with a plunging neckline, embraced the anarkali in all its traditional glory. There was a certain something about it that instantly brought to mind old-school glamour. And it didn’t hurt that it was just as Boomerang or slow-mo video friendly as a lehenga.
Anushka’s otherwise minimal anarkali was accentuated with a heavily-embellished cream dupatta that lent a dash of shine to her look. She accessorised her sunny outfit with big polki, pearl and emerald earrings. The star added finishing touches to the ensemble by way of a tiny gold bindi, crimson lips, dewy make-up and mascara, with her hair tied in a neat bun.
