Deepika Padukone is a multi-talented actress who rose to fame after her debut film Om Shanti Om. Since then she has been a B-town favourite and has made an impact on the nation’s heart! To add to her acting prowess, she is an absolute fashion icon. The star is known to always bring her A-game to the fashion department. Her super stylish OOTD’s serve as a major inspo to all her fashionista fans. This latest velvet number did not disappoint and is everything we could ask for and more!

Let’s have a look, shall we?

The Outfit

Definitely making heads turn, Deepika took the red carpet by storm in a strapless black gown by designer-duo Gauri and Nainika. Styled by Shaleena Nathani, this gorgeous, black number that was custom-made for her accentuated the diva’s hourglass figure perfectly. The dress features a daring, plunging andmsweetheart neckline that amplifies the wow factor of the dress. The velvet material is quite season-appropriate and adds more character to the look. It also cinches in at the waist and proceeds to flow into a long train that gives her a regal look. All in all her look exuded glamour and left us swooning. If by any chance I ever walk a red carpet, this is certainly the look I’d go for!

Accessories & Makeup

Adding to the royal vibe, she accessorised the look with a statement, diamond-studded necklace with an emerald pendant from Vandals and a diamond-studded ring to match from Diosa Paris. For her makeup which was done by Anil C, she opted for bold, winged eyeliner with a dab of metallic eyeshadow and a nude lipstick giving her a vintage vibe. Her cropped hair, done by Yianni Tsapatori was side-parted into tousled, lustrous waves that framed her face and highlighted her sharp features. I could only wish to rock short hair this well! The accessories and makeup complemented her dress flawlessly.
