"I have had so many co-stars."
When it comes to setting the fashion bar sky-high, Tamannaah Bhatia does it with an effortless elegance that’s truly in a league of its own.
The actress left no stone unturned in making a jaw-dropping entrance at the GQ Best Dressed Awards held on September 8 in Mumbai.
The event witnessed a constellation of A-list celebrities, including Palak Tiwari, Richa Chadha, Rakul Preet Singh, and more, gracing the red carpet in their finest fashion ensembles.
However, it was Tamannaah Bhatia who stole the spotlight and commanded the attention of all as she sauntered into the venue.
Tamannaah’s choice for the evening was a mesmerising purple sequin gown, a masterpiece from the renowned designer LaQuan Smith’s Spring Summer 2023 collection, valued at $2,550.
The gown, characterised by its daring halter neckline and sensuous side cut-outs leading to an alluring low-cut, backless design, exuded sheer sophistication and glamour.
Complementing the gown, Tamannaah opted for matching purple pointed pumps, adding a touch of regality to her ensemble.
The sartorial magnificence did not end there.
The actress adorned herself with a lavish thick stone-studded choker and a gold necklace featuring a delicate crucifix pendant.
Her makeup artist skilfully crafted classic black smokey eyes and a plum lip, while her hair was styled into charmingly tousled waves, enhancing the overall allure of her attire.
Tamannaah Bhatia’s choice to wear LaQuan Smith is no surprise, as the designer has become a favoured name among Hollywood’s elite for his daring, sheer, and sequin-infused creations.
Notable personalities like Khloe Kardashian and Megan Fox have previously graced public appearances with his iconic designs.
Adding a touch of romance to the evening, Tamannaah was accompanied by her dashing actor beau, Vijay Varma.
Vijay donned a silver patterned blazer layered over a stylish mesh shirt and black panelled pants, a choice that exuded contemporary charm.
However, what captured everyone’s attention was Tamannaah’s playful gesture as she lovingly documented her partner’s impeccable outfit by capturing a video of him on her phone.
For the unversed, Tamannaah announced her romantic relationship with Vijay Varma in an interview with Film Companion in early 2023:
“I don’t think you can get attracted to someone just because they are your co-star.”
“I have had so many co-stars. I think if one has to fall for someone or feel something for someone, it’s definitely more personal.
“It’s nothing to do with what they do for a living, I mean that’s not the reason why this would happen.”
The two starred together in Lust Stories 2, for which Tamannaah even broke her no-kiss on-screen policy.
