The colour black indicates one’s desire to reclaim their power. Whether that means one trying to shield themselves from some sentiments or communicate wants and needs. Wearing all-black is often a subconscious message to others and oneself. Black indicates prestige and power, confidence and self-sufficiency. And we already know what a forgiving colour black is to the female form. Hence, it symbolises sex appeal and most women will opt for it when they want to make a statement. Take Bollywood dames Shraddha Kapoor and Nora Fatehi who both opt for black velvet gowns, thus proving my point. Scroll on for more details on their looks.

Here’s a closer look at Shraddha Kapoor and Nora Fatehi in gorgeous black gowns:

Namrata Deepak syles Shraddha Kapoor in a black velvet gown by Aadnevik. Kristian Aadnevik is a London-based Norwegian designer. And the dress costs approximately 8 lakh rupees. The black halter-neck dress features a polo neck and one-shoulder detailing. Ruched gathering opens into a sexy thigh-high slit. However, the dress has a lot of intricate details to keep an eye on. For starters, fringe chains on the sleeves and slit. The neckline features braided leather details that is replicated on the belt of the dress as well that gives the illusion of a tiny waistline. She accessorises the look with a pair of shiny, chrome strappy stilettos from Steve Madden and beaded black earrings from Deepa Gurnani.

Shraddha Naik gives Shraddha Kapoor a flawless base with contoured cheeks, nude lips and silver smokey eyes. She tops off her look with mascara heavy lashes and tongs her hair to look like perfection.

Maneka Harisinghani styles Nora Fatehi in a black velvet gown from Russian brand, Maison D’angelann. The full-sleeve, bodycon dress finds and hugs Nora’s curves perfectly. It has very power-shoulder details and an embellished thigh-high slit. The star accessorises her look with finger rings and drop earrings from Ayana Silver Jewellery. In addition to these accessories, she wears patent leather point pumps from Christian Louboutin. Even though the dress is simple, it is quite classic and creates a powerful image.

Namrata Soni gives Nora Fatehi filled-in brows, brown smokey eyes, a wing liner, flushed cheeks and pink rosy lips. Gorgeous Hollywood curls and side-swept add the glamour of her ensemble.
