Malaika Arora Khan

You’d think she’d do some sexy cut-outs for the cel­e­bra­tions, but here’s Malaika Arora Khan, giv­ing us a big (and fash­ion­able) sur­prise. The ac­tor is seen wear­ing a lehenga by la­bel Raw Mango. De­signer Rina Dhaka gives the look a big thumbs up. “I think Malaika looks really nice. The all-wrapped look is refreshing, and en­hances her jew­elled maala.”

Deepika Padukone

Deepika Padukone also chose to make her Di­wali fash­ion­able in a Sabyasachi sari. Her fierce beauty look com­plete with dra­matic eye makeup and pulled-back hair earned her ex­tra style points. “The ex­quis­ite sari is styled really beau­ti­fully. And, what works won­der­fully with her Di­wali look are her boldly crafted eye­brows,” says de­signer Anand Bhushan.

Aish­warya Rai Bachchan

This floor-length ensem­ble by de­signer Man­ish Malhotra was tai­lor-made for the oc­ca­sion. “It’s from my lim­ited-edi­tion col­lec­tion and com­prises all hand-done thread em­broi­dery, be­spoke for the night,” Malhotra told us. “The colours make the look pop, they are very Katy Per­rry, and that mag­nif­i­cent face!” ex­claimed de­signer Rina Dhaka.

Ka­t­rina Kaif

Known

for play­ing it safe when it comes to fash­ion, Ka­t­rina Kaif stuck to her zone on Di­wali wear­ing an om­bré Sabyasachi sari. While for de­signer Anand Bhushan the look was a com­plete let down, de­signer Reynu Taan­don thinks it could have been sal­vaged. “She could have taken her look up a notch by ty­ing her hair and top­ping it with a dainty flower,” she says.

Pari­neeti Cho­pra

Also

in Man­ish Malhotra, Pari­neeti Cho­pra took on Di­wali with a vengeance and shared this pic­ture on her In­sta­gram ac­count, show­ing off the con­tem­po­rary lehenga that com­prises a dra­matic skirt and a gilded crop top. “I think the look is su­per young, cute and pretty refreshing,” says de­signer Reynu Taan­don.

Sonam Kapoor

Even

though she is the undis­puted style gamechanger of Bol­ly­wood, even Sonam gets her share of mixed re­views. While de­signer Anand Bhushan loves the Anamika Khanna look: “It’s a re­sham em­broi­dered sari with mukesh work, stun­ning!” he ex­claims. Rina Dhaka is not big on the look: “I pre­fer Sonam sexy or soft, this is a bit Simi Gare­wal.”

Ka­reena Kapoor Khan

Mrs.

Khan also took on Di­wali in a host of Sabyasachi num­bers. This par­tic­u­lar one, gets a thumbs up. “I was a lit­tle un­der­whelmed by Ka­reena’s look when I saw it first, but once she turned, my jaws dropped! The back­less bro­cade choli paired with the lehenga is an ab­so­lute stun­ner,” says de­signer Anand Bhushan.

Shilpa Shetty Kun­dra

Shilpa

picked a hue which could light up an en­tire room with a Man­ish Malhotra sari. De­signer Reynu Taan­don thinks the smart colour pair­ing makes her stand out, “Off­set­ting the aqua look with ruby lips and nails makes her look beau­ti­ful. She looks ab­so­lutely stun­ning, per­fectly dressed.”
