These beauties are cashing in on fringe benefits
Some iconic trends refuse to go out of fashion and fringes are undoubtedly one of them. First, it was the flapper dresses in the 1920s, then music biggies like Elvis, Nancy Sinatra and Madonna who rocked the trend, and now celebrities are flaunting the fringe fashion statement on the red carpet.
We are loving the comeback of this edgy yet elegant style on both Hollywood and Bollywood divas — be it actor Deepika Padukone’s sequinned red number for a film promotion or Blake Lively’s black mini at an awards night. “Music has been a big inspiration this season when it comes to style. From Beyoncé and Rihanna to J Lo — women are re-inventing themselves and fringes are a big part of what they choose to wear. Not surprising, considering this little detail adds so much glamour,” says designer Nikhil Mehra.
Designer Urvashi Kaur says fringes help clean up red carpet clutter. “They are a lovely way to work in a cool quotient into a red carpet look. Different lengths and textures add drama and movement. The styling can make you go from rock chic and futuristic to polished.”
Designer Nida Mahmood says Pee-Cee’s People’s Choice Awards style is the way to go. “The silhouette is simple, but the fringe is the reason it stands out,” she says.
