2016 has already seen some seriously stylish outfits from our favourite Bollywood stars. DESIblitz shortlists the best dressed celebs of January so far.
[Sonam] donned an Elie Saab Fall 2015 jumpsuit which was nothing short of divine.
The start of 2016 was the beginning of a brand new fashion journey for our beloved Bollywood celebs.
It was a time of wardrobe revamps and reinventions as they kicked off the new year in style, quite literally.
The Filmfare Awards and the Star Screen Awards dominated fashion blogs everywhere this month, and it’s no surprise why.
January was a time to impress, and these Bollywood stars did just that. But which celebs have made it into our first best dressed list of the year? Let’s find out.
1. Ranveer Singh
January 15th, 2016 saw a sea of stars sashay down the red carpet whilst attending the Filmfare Awards.
One star who truly shone was Ranveer Singh, who looked dapper in a black and white suit jacket.
The geometric print was eye-catchingly dazzling, and was a definite showstopper of the evening.
Paired with a black bowtie and white shirt which complimented the stars’ colour palette, the hearthrob channelled his inner gentleman.
Ranveer is known for his suave style and sleek look, and this entry definitely lived up to his high standard.
2. Sonam Kapoor
Yet again, Sonam Kapoor is in one of our best dressed lists, and knocks everyone out of the water with her stunning ensemble.
This time, the fashionista donned an Elie Saab Fall 2015 jumpsuit which was nothing short of divine.
The plunging neckline was outstandingly dramatic, which was cut off towards the waist clinching golden belt.
Its lace detailing on the sleeved created an entirely feminine look.
Sonam paired her attire with suede boots and a box clutch, along with a middle parted hairstyle.
This isn’t the first time that this Bollywood beauty has entered our best dressed list, and we have no doubt in saying that it won’t be the last.
3. Huma Qureshi
Another look from the Filmfare Awards is from Huma Qureshi, who dazzled onlookers with her simplistic style choice.
Wearing a Mayyur Girotra design, she desi beauty enthralled fashionistas by proving herself to be worthy amongst the style icons.
The asymmetric gown hugged at the stars’ figure, showcasing her womanly curves.
The embroidered detailing towards the trail of the dress most definitely took our breath away with its golden beauty.
Wearing a golden bracelet paired with matching rings, Huma dazzled her way through the crowds at the Filmfare Awards, and earns her place in the best dressed list.
4. Varun Dhawan
Varun Dhawan attended this years star Star Screen Awards wearing a three piece Dior Homme suit, and we couldn’t divert our eyes.
Its tight fit and open shirt depicted the actor as a dapper gentleman, and raised his fashion game up a notch or two.
The chequered print added an old-school feel to his look, which always works for the star considering his timeless good looks.
This fresh, clean look was a definite hit with the ladies.
Varun has graced many a best dressed list, and he definitely didn’t let us down with this number.
5. Deepika Padukone
Deepika Padukone attended the Star Screen Awards on January 24th, 2016, and wore a spellbinding Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla gown.
Her ensemble came in a two piece form, as a bralet and skirt style.
The cut out bralet was smothered in gold and silver embroidery, which perfectly matched the actress’ simplistic stilettoes.
But the talking point of Deepika’s outfit was quite clearly the skirt.
The overflowing layers looked ethereally elegant, as did the soft colour palette.
Its waterfall design towards the front of the skirt showcased her gorgeous shoes, and created a truly angelic look.
Her sleek, high-knot bun was breathtaking, and made her entire look a definite hit.
But that wasn’t the only time Deepika turned heads this month.
Whilst attending the Umang 2016 show, the Bajirao Mastani (2015) star donned an enviously gorgeous ensemble.
Wearing an ivory embroidered kurta over a cobalt blue lehenga by Anamika Khanna, Deepika looked seriously stylish.
Again, she opted for slicked back hair to allow her outfit do all the talking. And it did just that.
The gorgeous detailing captivated our attention, and glistened in the paparazzi light.
Wearing a gold statement necklace, Deepika’s second look may just be our favourite so far.
This year has already kicked off in style, with each celebrity trying their hardest to outshine their previous outfits.
With so many award shows and fashion events coming up, this is only the start of an exciting year of couture gowns, stylish suits, and eccentric ensembles.
