Have you been mercilessly scrolling through your Instagram feed too? I know I have been and I’ve been scrolling every chance I get. What I miss is my favourite B-town hotties strutting their stuff around town. I did enjoy the inspiration and their tremendous efforts to dazzle us with every chance they’d get. So I decided to randomly stalk some of my favourite celebrities and noticed that some of the lehengas they’ve worn are stunning! Of course, me being me I immediately decided that I had to add it to another fun Indianwear listicle that proves exactly what I noticed. Because who doesn’t love being right? amirite?
If you’re interested in building up an ethnic wardrobe packed with robust colours and on-trend items then look no beyond Bollywood. Because our B-town beauts really know how to wear classic wardrobe must-haves that simply blow us over each time.
Kriti wears a Shehlaa Khan lehenga with a scarlet rose print in satin georgette fabric. I like the modern waist belt which means it also be worn several times as a maxi skirt as well. The red organza jacket featured cascading ruffles and a circular flounce at the end of the sleeve. The crop top can also be paired with high waisted pants, I imagine it looks very sexy.
Tamannaah wears a fuschia-pink appliqué and embellished lehenga set from Aisha Rao. I love how detailed the ensemble is and the mix of colours that work perfectly with one another. The addition of that yellow embellished organza dupatta is quite a flattering and fun element.

Aditi wears a royal purple lehenga set from Jayanti Reddy. The outfit looks like it’s made from silk with Zardozi work. This type of embroidery uses copper wire with a silver or gold polish and silk threads. It is also interesting to see how the embellishments have been spaced out on the ensemble creating a very well-balanced garment.
Kareena’s heavily embroidered lehenga from Anamika Khanna is stunning as ever. The black bustier is completely embellished and matches the bottom with its gold and silver thread work. The black colour of the ensemble is broken with the help of an ivory embroidered dupatta. An ivory dupatta seems to be a signature, addition to Anamika’s collections.

Malaika’s salmon pink Swarovski embellished lehenga features delicately embroidered linear patterns that ease into chevrons and geometric symmetry. The beaded dupatta and bustier are quite the highlight to me and seem to work well against brown skin tones. She wears a Tarun Tahiliani number.
Sonam wears a RheaXMasaba creation. What is lovely about this lehenga is that it is casually glamourous. The fun print, the blouse being a shirt, the long bell sleeves and the knot front detail make it quite modern. Although I struggle with repeating prints, that would be my only issue when investing in this piece.
Katrina’s blue print-on-print lehenga from Anita Dongre is a hard one to ignore. The ensemble featured light-weight fabric and pockets and also a sheer printed dupatta to break the blue tones that run through the outfit.
Janhvi’s all gold ensemble from Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla is mesmerising. The skirt of the lehenga is embroidered with mirror work and has a bustier with gold thread work. The stand out dupatta has green piping along the edges adding a much-needed pop of colour to the outfit.
Shraddha’s emerald green Anita Dongre outfit stole my heart. I love the keyhole neckline and the tunic style three-quarter sleeved choli, which would work for women who might be conscious to show their tummy. This is a pretty detailed ensemble filled with a whole lot of embellishments and various types of embroideries, some of which are resham, dori, sequins, zari and zardosi work.
Alia‘s ensemble from Anushree Reddy is unique because it has no dupatta. I love the vintage floral print of the lehenga and the ruffle neckline on the blouse. Of course, this look can be paired as separates as well. I would totally rock a look like this to a mehendi function.
If and when I do get married, I’d want this outfit to be my wedding lehenga. The neckline is so elegant and beautifully off-set with green jewellery. This ivory ensemble features pearl embellishments and a silver foil rim on the end of the dupatta. Possibly my favourite look from Masaba.
Do you see yourself wearing any of these lehengas above? I know storing lehengas can be hard, so try to find one that doesn’t require too much space and is light-weight. Let me know in the comments below.
