Pantone declared Very Peri - a shade of purple to be the colour of the year 2022. True to form Bollywood stayed ahead of the curve and has already been seen wearing this shade through 2021. I've noticed that quite a few of these leading ladies are evolving with their sartorial choices and are seen venturing outside of their comfort zones, which is always a great thing and this allows for a little bit of forecasting as well. So what we're trying to say is thank goodness that Bollywood always keeps setting the foundation for upcoming trends that we can follow.
Here are 6 times B-town wore Very Peri the Pantone colour of the year in 2021 thus proving that Bollywood has its finger on the pulse:
1) Madhuri Dixit
Styled by Ami Patel, Madhuri wears a gorgeous lehenga from Sukriti & Aakriti. The sequin blouse paired with a matching skirt with powder blue embroidery really add to the overall look. A sheer dupatta with vibrant thread embroidery and gota really make the outfit pop.
2) Tamannaah Bhatia
Style by Sukriti Grover, Tamannaah wears a gorgeous pleated gown with a metallic silver bodice from Amit Aggarwal. The gown looks it's made of part armour but also has feminine appeal with the shoulder drape. Amit Aggarwal is the true master so blending structure and fluidity together.
3) Radhika Madan
Styled by Sukriti Grover, Radhika wears a dress perfect for a cocktail or outdoor party. This dress by Mitiliane Couture features subtle power shoulder that give the illusion of a tiny waistline. The draping around the bust area with the peek-a-boo effect along with the side train make it a versatile dress for the evening.
4) Alaya F
Styled by Mohit Rai, this outfit screams old Hollywood glamour. Corseted bustier with draped detailing and a thigh high slit with a cascading train add to the glamour. Alaya's elegant gown is by Gaby Charbachy.
5) Malaika Arora
Styled by Maneka Harisinghani, Malaika wears an all-sequin gown by Naeem Khan. Cannot faul this flawless look as it doesn't overwhelm thanks to the colour. Long sleeves with a high-neck and a lil peek-a-boo of skin on the neckline make this an eye-catching number.
6) Ileana D'Cruz
Styled by Sanam Ratansi, Ileana wear Veri Peri in the form of sexy swimwear from Flirtatious. High-waisted knickers with a tie-front bandeau and a sheer cape all look picture-perfect for a beach getaway.
