Though King Khan’s second born’s Bollywood debut, The Archies, is still a few months away, Suhana looks every bit ready to wear stardom like a second skin in her glittery blue sari. More power to the seven yard wonder.

A traditional gajra of fresh, fragrant mogras is even better, proves Mouni.

Fashion is fun but you don’t always need fancy clothes and cosmetics to look your best. And Rashmika’s embodiment of Audrey Hepburn’s quote — a smile is the best accessory a woman can wear — is its gorgeous example.

What’s dressy yet elegant at the same time? Katrina conveying the power of ‘au naturale’ in her salmon pink ethnic outfit embellished with intricate golden thread embroidery.

You can never go wrong with black and gold. Team it with dramatic kohl eyes and emeralds like Deepika and it’s etched in stone.

Aspiring for a stylish and statuesque aura like the Scoop star? Pairing a mint green anarkali with oversized jhumkis and colourful juttis might do the trick for those of you on the taller side.
