Katrina Kaif, Alia Bhatt at Shraddha Kapoor: 10 BEST Lehengas by Creator of the Week, Manish Malhotra
One of the most legendary designers who has made his mark not only in India but around the world, with his experimental outfits which are of great interest to them, is Manish Malhotra. The designer ace is now one year older and to honor his contribution to the world of fashion and film, we’ve completed some of his most creative and innovative lehenga designs to date.
From designing costumes for movies to the director himself, MM has come a long way. Close friend and go-to designer for almost every Bollywood celebrity, any design by the designer goes viral and is often recreated. Known for his luxurious and awe-inspiring designs, we take a look at 10 of the best lehenga moments that celebrities have sported in Manish Malhotra’s designs on his 55th birthday.
Bride-to-be Katrina Kaif walked the catwalk and played a starring role for the designer who opened Lakme Fashion Week a few years ago. She wore a black lehenga with gold embroidery and a blouse with a plunging neckline and ruffled sleeves, giving us an unusual new blouse design to try this wedding season.
Alia Bhatt was next to sport a new blouse creation from designer ace. For her best friend Anushka Ranjan’s wedding, the 28-year-old actress chose a neon lehenga and styled it in an “Infinity Blouse” with an inverted sweetheart neckline. Safe to say, this is going to be one of the biggest blouse trends of the next year!
Shraddha Kapoor looked pretty in an ombre pink creation with detailed floral embroidery resizing the lengths of her lehenga. She wore it with a classic blouse and sheer dupatta, arguing for softer hues and giving us bridesmaid goals in the Manish Malhotra lehenga.
The designer’s tallest cheerleader and best friend, Kareena Kapoor Khan, also often flaunts her designs. An ice blue lehenga with white embroidery paired with a matching long coat for a fresh look that was then recreated by many designers.
Kiara Advani too, like her Good Newwz co-star, is a staunch supporter of Manish Malhotra’s creations. For a friend’s wedding, she wore a highly ornate pastel blue and pink lehenga that ensured that all eyes were on her. Making sure all the attention was on her outfit, Kiara styled it with a simple potli and layered diamond necklace.
Deepika Padukone starred for the ace designer in a red bridal lehenga. Again, turning heads with an all new blouse design, the Manish Malhotra set by Deepika featured an off-the-shoulder red blouse with a sweetheart neckline and a lehenga with a long train.
Janhvi Kapoor is also a close friend of the designer who is an avid fan of her late mother, Sridevi. From saris to lehengas, Janhvi’s closet is filled with creations from the shelves of Manish Malhotra. For her cousin Sonam Kapoor’s wedding reception, Janhvi donned a shimmering pastel lehenga which she wore with a spaghetti strap blouse and a dupatta with a ruffled hem, giving us a trendy, millennial take on the classic outfit.
Khushi Kapoor too, often sports the designer’s creations. One thing we can’t forget is this pink lehenga chikankari with off the shoulder blouse she looked radiant in!
Kriti Sanon and Manish Malhotra have been friends since the days of modeling. So it makes sense that she chooses her designs for her most special occasions. The Lukka Chuppi actress looked divine in a white lehenga with heavy gold embroidery at the hem of her skirt. She paired it with a long sleeve blouse and sheer dupatta to complete her desi look.
Sara Ali Khan also starred in the Manish Malhotra Collection in her digital film. She looked simply regal in a pastel lehenga with sequins scattered all over the place. Her bralette-style blouse and shimmering dupatta assured Sara a glamorous look in this opulent creation!
I wish the designer a very happy birthday! Which of his lehengas is your favorite? Comment below and let us know.
