Bollywood Blast: Stars Celebrate Diwali!

by Secret Closet on November 19, 2012 in Bollywood Blast

Bollywood went all out to celebrate Diwali festivities in all its glory with exclusive parties hosted by the Bachchans, Shilpa Shetty & Raj Kundra, and Ekta Kapoor. From saris to traditional Anarkalis and lehngas the stars played it uber Indian for one of their most treasured of festivals which spans a five day period. We loved the Sabyasachi and Anamika Khanna attires but Manish Malhotra and some of the others disappointed with styles that we left behind a while back. Take a look and decide for yourselves if you agree with us.

Sonam Kapoor (feature pic) wore a delightful Anamika Khanna lehnga in white tulle embellished in antique and lifted with red trimming. The heavy jhumkas and pulled back traditional low bun make her the perfect Indian beauty. We especially love the way she has draped the dupatta to display the work as the circular motif on her blouse doesn’t do very much for us.

Bipasha also stuck to Sabyasachi looking royal in a purple open pattern floral motif sari brightened with a rich banarsi pink blouse. What do we think of the bangs, hit or miss?

We didn’t care too much for Preity Zinta in this bubblegum pink Manish Malhotra. The short flared kali shirts are one beloved Indian silhouette that we don’t see eye to eye on.

Now here’s something we can get on board with! Sonali Bendre looks absolutely fabulous in these citrus shades wearing Abu Sandeep. The subtle shaded orange and lemon balances the over powering green beautifully. It may not be for everyone but she pulls it off without a hitch.

Which one of Shilpa’s three diwali get ups is your favourite. Personally we love the gota work on the sleeves in pink!

Madhuri Dixit in simple Indian banarsi, reminding us a bit of Vidya Balan.

Kangna Ranaut opted for Sabyasachi however this one is a bit all over the place and we do wish she had draped the dupatta more traditionally given the occasion.

Aishwarya and Abhishekh greeting guests at the Bachchan Diwali bash. Not a big fan of the pink anarkali.

Yet again we’re convinced that when it comes to desi fashion our designers are leaps and bounds ahead of the rest, the exception being Sabyasachi ofcourse who is an absolute king in his own right.
