Anushka Sharma is more than a name in Bollywood when it comes to her poise and confidence – both in ‘style’ and ‘her dialogue delivery’.
She has stolen the audiences with her two tumultuous block buster’s of the year 2016 – Ae Dil Hail Mushkil and Sultan. Besides that – her dressing style has been all the while, the talk of the town!
Be it boho-chic fashion jackets or ethereal ethnic look – Anushka has nailed her characters as ‘Alizeh Khan’ and ‘Aaafra’ in both the respective movies.
If you are looking to decode this style of Anushka – dive deeper to know how you can recreate this look for yourself. But to get the originality of this look, you must try to fish in some silk lehenga or net lehenga embellished with historically patterned motifs on it – which makes the overall look ‘surreal’.
The former look is from ‘Sultan’ – styled by country’s first cinema-inspired fashion brand Diva’ni. Moreover, the look of this ensemble is from Diva’ni’s ‘Lafz’ collection. Anushka is seen sporting a traditional chikankari lehenga with bespoke patterned zardozi works on it. Other elements of design on the lehenga are gota, kundan, dabka and naqshi. The ivory chikankari carries fine thread work renderings of Mughal art. She looks no less than a coy Punjabi bride in this Haryanvi ensemble.
The second look is from ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ and this look is particularly from the popular hit song ‘Channa Mereya’. Anushka looks all dolled up in a long sleeved golden zardosi blouse worn over a red lehenga. She has paired it up well with a gorgeous net lehenga dupatta, neatly covering up her head.
Since, she is a Muslim bride in both the films – her head ornament peeking neatly from the edge of her dupatta, makes her look even more elegant.
Though, white is not used much in Indian wedding – but ivory as a base color on golden and golden as a base color for red is surefire to swoon the onlookers!
Moreover, since every ethnic outfit calls in for a little ‘show-up’ and covering-up the tad – its better you grip in some protein shakes and gear up with exercises.
Dupatta Draping Style
In the first look, Anushka has draped it like a typical Punjabi, by pinning on to both of her shoulders and covering a portion of it on her head. In Manish Malhotra lehenga – she has draped the heavy dupatta like a shawl and a small portion adorning her head.
Makeup and Accessories
Though, Anushka’s peach complexion doesn’t need much of make-up. But a light foundation, smoky kohl-smeared eyes and flowy hair can look ravishing on you! A stylish silver nose-ring can enhance it even more.
But we seriously can’t take our eyes from that multi-layered green and white stone studded necklace!
Since fabric plays an important role in any traditional outfit. The motifs and designs on raw silk lehenga would, even more, enhance the beauty. Hence, try recreating the same style on some other fabric and sport it with confidence.
