The Chaiyan Chaiyan girl, Malaika Arora Khan, has been stealing hearts since the 90’s, and after several years in the industry she wears many (stylish) hats apart from just model, muse and former VJ — she’s also a successful fashion entrepreneur, fitness inspiration, and if it isn’t obvious, Bollywood’s hottest mom!!
While sexy numbers that flaunt her svelte and enviable frame are her perennial favorites, she does give desi ensembles a go every now and then too! And her new stylist, Maneka Harisinghani is pulling all the stops to allow this siren to show us her sophisticated and subtle side. So make no mistake — while Mrs. Khan can rock the hell out of that bodycon dress, she sure knows how to look like a million bucks in the classic six-yards as well. We round up her top traditional looks for some wedding-season inspiration.
Go for Gold
This all lace Vikram Phadnis sari paired with a sleeveless blouse is a sure winner in our books. It’s feminine and flirty while oozing unabashed glamour. It helps that head-to-toe gold is a trend du jour as well. A winning look for your bestie’s destination wedding, isn’t it?
Fresh as a Daisy
The diva is known to be partial to deeper tones, which is why we were pleasantly surprised to see her in this cheery summer-ready lehenga by Seema Khan for her sis-in-law Arpita Khan’s wedding. Not only does the bright color take some years off, it’s perfect for a mehendi too!
More Wine Please!
Now, we all know that marsala is the color of the year, what with Pantone’s endorsement and celebrity approvals! Malaika, too, was quick to jump onto the bandwagon with this regal Manish Malhotra creation. The floor length anarkali accentuates her hourglass figure beautifully and adds height as well.
Black is always fashionable and Mrs. Khan sports the timeless color in all its classic glory in this Shantanu and Nikhil draped sari. From a cocktail party to a reception, this versatile number will always be on point!
Bollywood’s sworn hottie channeled her inner mermaid while looking pretty as a picture in this Sonaakshi Raaj sari gown with just the right pop of pink via her lips. The blouse with its mesh detailing and unforgiving color is not an easy one to sport, giving us yet another reason to love her impeccable style!
Luxemi Pick: Feel the aqua rush in this sari with mirror work by Satya Paul available on Luxemi. Wear it with statement earrings and a maang tikka for the next summer wedding you attend!
