Shraddha Kapoor & Kangana Ranaut are gearing up for the release of their films (Street Dancer 3D & Panga, respectively) that happens to be scheduled for release on the same day—January 24, 2020. For their promotional events, both ladies have been serving up some glamorous looks and we’re loving it.

Fashion in itself is a huge industry and has become an integral part of the Bollywood industry. Celebrities have easily embraced the changing times and with that bridged the gap between International and Indian labels.

Tanya Ghavri styled Shraddha in a Reem Acra outfit—the look comprised of a black, brocade crop top with tie-straps and was paired with black, velvet, palazzo pants. The brocade on her crop top is reminiscent of Renaissance royalty, but just as easily represents classic elegance for the modern woman. Her look was finished out with gold, Jimmy Choo shoes and jewellery from celebrity favourite, Farah Khan Ali and Jet Gems.

Makeup artist, Shraddha Naik did light smokey eyes and soft pink lips, and Nikita Menon styled Shraddha with a centre-parted, low chignon. The actress sure does look angelic in this do.

Kangana’s appearance last night on the sets of Indian Idol 10 was definitely a memorable one. She looked fantastic in her silk, mustard, yellow kurta-churidar from Raw Mango by Sanjay Garg. Her black, kimono style, brocade jacket was definitely the highlight though. Styled with a belt, a collar necklace from Amrapali and black-wedged, pumps from Christian Louboutin embellished her look perfectly. She totally gives us ‘fierce ninja’ vibes in this ensemble.

Makeup artist, Loveleen Ramchandani kept the makeup clean with a contoured cheek and winged liner. Whereas Haseena Shaikh gave Kangana a middle parting with straight slick hair.

Just some quick trivia for all you fashion enthusiasts, in case you weren’t already aware—Brocade is a woven fabric having raised floral or filigree designs and is often made in coloured silks with or without gold and silver threads.

This fabric is most commonly turned into sarees, salwar-suits, kurtas, lehengas and is a major part of a woman’s wedding trousseau. Apart from clothing, it’s usage is mostly found in upholstery and draperies.

Here are a few of our favourite Bollybabes sporting the brocade trend:-
