2017 will come to be known as the year when our 90s Bollywood icons resolved to rewrite their sartorial destinies; the year when Sridevi pulled off indie labels better than her millennial daughters, Jhanvi and Khushi.
Where Raveena Tandon picked a handloom sari over the standard Bollywood bling. And, where Shilpa Shetty stole Sonam Kapoor’s thunder and pulled off a holographic gown. Yep, for the IIFA awards in New York, the thumka-connoisseur picked an outfit that most Bollywood actresses would kill to sport.
This was Shilpa’s moment, though and you better believe she made sure she owned it.For the awards, the actress continued her offbeat streak in a Monisha Jaising one-shoulder gown, featuring a floor-sweeping extended sleeve and waist-defining gathered detail.
If your Indian reference game is strong, you could draw parallels between her and a supernatural female, more familiarly known as an apsara. Earrings from Idezen and her signature blowout tied the Grecian-cum-desi-cum-Sonam Kapoor look together. Why do we mention Sonam Kapoor, you ask?
