Trend Alert - Our Favorite Karva Chauth & Pujo Looks
It’s time for celebrations! The festive season is upon us in full glory, and Indian celebs are leaving no stone unturned to put their best foot forward in regal ethnic wear. With Karva Chauth following the Durga Pujo season, we got a glimpse of several stars stepping out in their finest ethnic attires, and it was a fashion lover’s delight to see so many great looks. Check out some of the most loved looks of the festive season so far…
Bipasha Basu has been a fashion icon ever since she made her entry into Bollywood. Known for her fierce looks and bold style, her looks are always on point, whether she is sporting Indian or western clothes. Bipasha shared this lovely pic of herself during Durga Puja festivities. Decked in a shimmery silk saree, she completed her look with a bright pink bindi, sindoor, bangles (a mix of glass, gold, and traditional white Bengali bangles), and a gorgeous necklace made in a traditional temple design.
Katrina Kaif took the world by storm when she married Vicki Kaushal last year in a fairytale wedding. Celebrating her first Karva Chauth this year, she chose to wear a stunning red organza saree with a floral blue blouse. She completed her look with sindoor, a dainty red bindi, the traditional Punjabi chooda, mangalsutra, and chunky dangling earrings.
Shilpa Shetty has always been popular for her glamorous looks and lithe frame. The actress continues to defy age in her forties and looks as stunning as ever. She wore a bright red chiffon saree on Karva Chauth with a brocade blouse. She kept the overall look minimal, neat, and modern by choosing to keep her hair open and accessorizing with a bracelet in one hand and bangles in the other. Completing the look were sindoor, bindi, mangalsutra, and a stone-cut necklace.
