Brace yourselves. You’re about to see sequins all over your screen with A-list stars going twinkle, twinkle as they sparkle and shine in sequins, diamante and shimmering molten tones. The sparkly trend reigned supreme when Bollywood celebrities came together to party at actor Shah Rukh Khan’s residence, Mannat, in Mumbai. The occasion? Lawyer and BFF to the A-list set, Kajal Anand, was celebrating her 50th birthday on Friday.
As the night unfolded, one clear trend emerged: Sparkling dresses. Many of film industry’s leading ladies, including Alia Bhatt, Kareena Kapoor, Malaika Arora and more, opted for the futuristic-inspired look. Kareena and sister Karisma wore silver and black sequin, while Alia stepped out in a sparkling Atelier Zuhra gown straight off the runway.
Joining them in working the glitzy trend were actors Neha Dhupia, Aishwarya Rai, Raveena Tandon, Genelia Deshmukh, Sonali Bendre, Amrita Arora, as well as designers Maheep Kapoor, Seema Khan and Sussanne Khan, socialites Anu Dewan, Natasha Poonawalla and Bhavna Pandey, filmmaker Kiran Rao and stylist Anaita Shroff Adajania. The verdict? She who dares, sparkles!
Take a look at how these celebs championed some seriously jaw-dropping, high-octane sequin dresses.
Alia Bhatt has really upped her style of late. Snapped here sporting a dazzling Atelier Zuhra dress, the star’s look was set to stun. She wisely left her accessories to an absolute minimum and let her dress do the talking. Make-up like Alia and tie your hair into a low bun to tone down your party apparel.
Sequins needn’t be worn head-to-toe. Instead, opt for a metallic loose-fitted T-shirt, like Kareena Kapoor. A black micro mini, matching clutch and pumps suitably pared-down the actor’s shimmery MSGM look and gave off an I’ve-not-tried-but-still-look-fabulous air. Notepads out ladies, this outfit is a winner.
Karisma Kapoor opted for a Falguni-Shane Peacock dress that was encrusted with diamanté and sequins, proving that the Kapoor girls can truly sparkle, even in a wardrobe-staple LBD (little black dress). Channel the actor’s look with a statement high street party dress.
Malaika Arora is everyone’s favourite fashion girl and has many an A-list friend — but we’re thinking the reality TV judge must have fashion designer Manish Malhotra on speed-dial as her latest wardrobe is almost entirely made up of his creations. Her latest dress was all shimmer, and if anyone was going to pull off such a dazzling show-stopper, it’s Malaika!
Fashion’s favourite rebel, Amrita Arora was not afraid to stamp her mark on this season’s sequin trend with her quirky outfit. Granted that her dress might seem curiously loopy, we loved her anything-goes approach to this sparkly number — an inspiration in self expression!
Actor Hrithik Roshan’s former wife Sussanne Khan managed to pull off a short black embellished dress and maintained an air of elegance. Her chunky strappy heels and cinching waist belt grounded the aesthetic of this black outfit, and delivered a masterclass in getting the sequin look right.
Neha Dhupia’s style ranges from off-duty grunge to ultra chic — we love a star with two totally different modes! The actor worked a midnight blue one-shoulder knee-length dress with a stunning wrap detail that was completely laden with sequins. Hunt down a similar vintage sequin dress and replicate the look on a dance floor near you.
