Madhuri Dixit’s ghagra created a furore in Ranbir Kapoor’s heart in Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. What is it about this fashion statement that makes women look like a million bucks, we wonder…
There’s something very versatile about the ghagra look. You can strut around in one at a glamorous do or pick a casual long skirt to go for a regular movie screening. Bollywood babes are seen playing around with gorgeous ghagras every now and then. If a Kareena Kapoor Khan keeps it multi-coloured and vibrant in a long maxi skirt, a Madhuri is seen going all bling and buoyant in shiny Manish Malhotra designs in her recent item song from Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. And Neha Dhupia adds tadka by wearing an embellished top, while Bipasha Basu wears a set of colourful bangles and jangles her way through the glamorous style streets.
Let’s see how you can experiment with your ghagra, twirl around in one to create an impression…
The glimmer style: Be it a wedding or a grand event, a sequin studded lehenga always comes to the rescue. Wear it with a funky tube top or shiny kurti, it will never let you down.
The crinkled creation: Although they have become a li’l passé, you can always get them out of the style coffers and give it your own sweet wacky twist. Team it with a sling, for instance, and pair it with a metallic cuff – the crinkled long design is sure to stand out.
Maxi skirts: Maxi skirts are the ‘in’ thing. There are the transparent designs, the sexy slit creations…you won’t have a tough time triaging a trendy maxi bottom, for sure. Look at Neha Dhupia , she ditches the boring monochromes for a gradient shaded skirt. Lovely!
Umbrella cut ghagras: Remember Kareena Kapoor’s black skirt in the song Tum se hi from Jab We Met? Didn’t that look super feminine? They are flowy and have that fab quotient. Wear it with a tank top or put on a thick stone studded belt to spice up your look.
