When it comes to fashion, 2018 has been all about drama on the red carpet. Right from Deepika Padukone, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan to Priyanka Chopra, the Bollywood A-listers made sure that the world took notice.
So it’s only befitting that before the year comes to an end, we take a look at some of the most memorable moments of 2018.
Priyanka Chopra at MET Gala
The theme of the prestigious event was Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination and for the occasion, Chopra wore a deep burgundy strapless velvet gown with an intricately beaded and jewelled hood, which fitted the bill perfectly.
The headwear, which gave off a high priestess vibe and the drama of the golden, beaded details of the hood gave it a medieval times’ connotation.
Deepika Padukone at Met Gala
The Padmaavat actor looked delectably sinful in a gorgeous Prabal Gurung gown. The silk-crepe gown with a shoulder bloom accentuated her svelte figure and also witnessed the actor reprising the thigh-high slit which she has owned on red carpets in the past.
Deepika Padukone at Cannes
Deepika Padukone turned heads in this fuschia pink gown from Ashi Studio’s Spring/Summer’18 collection. The excessively ruffled mullet-cut outfit featured a long train with striking sleeves.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan at Cannes
Leaving onlookers stunned in an ultra-violet, blue and red gown that reflected the metamorphosis of a butterfly, Bachchan quite simply stole the show. Covered in Swarovski crystals and French palettes, the Michael Cinco creation boasted of a 20-feet long train that mimics a butterfly emerging from its chrysalis.
Kangana Ranaut at Cannes
Ranaut chose to go retro in a shimmery black Sabyasachi six yards. The sari was the designer’s take on “Aakash-tara or starry skies”. The hand-cut sequins on the hand-dyed sari has been sewn in individually, using the zardosi technique in order to create a “metallic, yet fluid fabric”.
For her second red carpet look, the Queen actor turned heads in a shimmery catsuit from Turkish fashion designer Nedo By Nedret Taciroglu’s collection. The heavily embroidered and embellished silver-shaded ensemble could have been really tricky to pull off, especially when one walks the red carpet, but Ranaut aced it like a pro.
Sonam Kapoor at Cannes
This year, for her first appearance on the red carpet at Cannes, Kapoor picked a flamboyant Ralph and Russo lehenga. The ethereal white number with statement sleeves and intricate, silver embellishments all over, was a beautiful cross between Indian and Western fashion.
Priyanka Chopra bachelorette party
For her bachelorette party, Chopra slayed in a white mini dress featuring embellishements on it from designer Georges Chakra’s collection. It was teamed with an excessively feathered cape detail that gave the outfit a dramatic touch.
We think all the actors aced their style statements.
