After months and months of waiting, the night finally arrived for popular rock band Coldplay to set the Mumbai stage afire. Thousands of fans gathered at the MMRDA grounds on November 19 for the Global Citizen India initiative 2016 to hear the iconic British rock band perform some of their favourite hits and even went all out to mix in some Indian tracks to the set as well!
Coldplay’s frontman Chris Martin even did his own version of ‘Channa Mereya’ from Karan Johar’s film Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, driving the crowds mad and ended the concert on a high note by inviting AR Rahman on-stage to sing ‘Maa tujhe salaam…Vande maatram’. Jay Z also made his India debut with this concert, performing his hit number ‘Bounce’ set to a sample of Rahman’s ‘Chaiya Chaiya’.
Without being there, it’s impossible to gauge the pulse and excitement at the MMRDA Grounds. Among the thousands of music fans, there was a fair representation of India’s Bollywood’s best, each dressed to suit the occasion. After all, every rock concert comes with its own fashion wear, right?! From Sonam Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha to Parineeti Chopra and Freida Pinto, India’s Bollywood’s belles were ready to rock the night in style. So, if you’re wondering what’s the kind of look to pull off for a concert like this, why not take a page out their books. Check out who wore what and how.
We absolutely loved this look. Wonderfully styled by Sanjana Batra, Chopra wore a white shirt by Deme By Gabriella, cinching it at the waist with a Bershka Collection tan belt and those moss green suede thigh-high Lulu and Sky boots are to die for. She finished off the rock-chic look with Les Specs aviators.
The Slumdog Millionaire girl knew she was going to dance the night away, hence the very practical golden shoes, but she chose to team that with a lovely ensemble from Gucci. Slightly schoolgirl-ish, we can’t help to point out, but she carried it off really well.
Malaika Arora’s one of Bollywood’s veteran fashionistas, and we can always expect her to dress to the occasion. Which is why this Deme By Gabriella tunic is absolutely spot on!
The Dabangg actress has been making waves with her style quotient these past few weeks, what with having dropped a fair amount of weight by the look of it, Sonakshi Sinha was all set to rock it out at the Coldplay concert. Wearing an olive shoelace skirt by Madison that we love, with a a black H&M top and a matching oversized jacket from Francesca. Styled by Mohit Rai, she finished the look with black tights, boots and a messy hair look.
We’ve been keeping a pretty close watch on Highway girl Alia Bhatt, after all ask any tween girl and their fashion idol will most likely be the bubbly actress. For the concert, Bhatt wore a black corset-inspired top, with a gold pleated skirt and a military camouflage jacket by Lulu and Sky. Though we’re not huge fans of the overall look, there are elements that worked.
This is possibly the most boho look sported by any of the Bollywood celebs. Katrina Kaif in this block lace maxi dress by Alexis Mabille kept up with the love of sheer theme that has dominated this year, while keeping it very fun with that burst of red and purple up-top.
When you’re doing a Bollywood fashion countdown, it’s very rare not to have Sonam Kapoor on the list, and we’re not leaving her out either. The Neerja actor attended the concert in a marsala pleated button down trench inspired dress by Sameer Madan. And though this may not be one of our favourite looks of hers, one thing’s for certain, no one else carries the cat-eyed glasses quite like Ms Kapoor.
