Manushi Chhillar, Kangana Ranaut, Shruti Haasan: Fashion hits and misses of the week (Feb 25 – March 3)

While Mahira Khan and Athiya Shetty gave some serious ethnic wear goals in an embellished sharara and anarkali gown, respectively, Kalki Koechilin kept it simple yet stylish in a blue linen sari. Here's a round-up of the fashion hits and misses of the week.

HIT: For her visit to the British Virgin Islands, Manushi Chhillar wore a silk-satin pantsuit in silver. We like the chic number from designer Sunaina Khera, which had knee-high slit pants and a glitzy silver embroidery on either side. The sleeve of Chillar’s suit jacket had a similar embroidery and we think the outfit was a nice choice for a formal visit, but also had a glam factor that could easily give Chhillar the fluidity to make it a party wear.

HIT: Malaika Arora was clad in a bodycon gold knee-high dress from Antonio Riva. We like the chic silver threadwork on the outfit and the voluminous cuffs that contrasted with the body-hugging number. As accessories, Arora chose to wear multiple rings from Flowerchild and complemented her outfit with matching pointed gold pumps. Make-up artist Divya Chablani opted for a nude palette with neutral lips. Hairstylist Sheetal F Khan rounded off the actor’s look with soft wavy hair and we like the triangular pin she used as hair ornamentation. (Source: manekaharisinghani/ Instagram)

HIT: While attending the Lux Style Awards 2018, Mahira Khan looked breathtakingly beautiful in a white sharara by Pakistani designer Faraz Manan. Featuring heavy golden embellishment, the kurta-style top had a scalloped hem with golden tassels on it. Styled by Maneka Harisinghani, the sharara was teamed with a matching dupatta on one side. A matching belt cinched the waist, which helped give the outfit some structure. She accesorised it with statement earrings by Sherezad Jewellery. Make-up artist Adnan Ansari gave her a refreshing look with a dewy sheen, slight blush on the cheeks, bright red lips and thickly-lined eyes. While hairstylists Maram and Aabroo styled her hair into a sleek, low bun. (Source: farazmanan/ Instagram)

HIT: Kangana Ranaut's quirky style statements are note-worthy and this time too the actor left us pleased in a chic knee-high dress from designer Dhruv Kapoor. We like the tulle number with semi-sheer sleeves and an illusion neckline that stylist Ekta Rajani teamed with a brown belt to accentuate the actor’s frame. Keeping her make-up minimal and her mane casually windblown, the actor gave us a cool lunch outfit to try out. (Source: eksters/ Instagram)

HIT: Kalki Koechlin gave us style lessons on how to wear a linen sari. Recently, the 'Margarita with a Straw' actor stepped out in a pretty pick from Anavila Misra to meet Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. She wore a navy blue sari with jari embroidery on it and we like the juxtaposition of the dark blue pallu with the much softer hue of the sari. The elegant designer wear was teamed with a matching blouse in a pastel brown. We like the actor’s easy-breezy look. For the accessories, she chose a metallic silver neckpiece from Lara M and rounded out her look with nude make-up, pink-tinted lips and her shang bangs. (Source: anavila_m/Instagram)

HIT: Athiya Shetty made heads turn in a pastel shaded, fully embellished anarkali from JADE by Monica and Karishma. The floor-length outfit featured a plunging neckline and it was teamed with a matching semi-sheer dupatta. She kept her accessories minimal, which we think was a good move otherwise it may have looked a bit overdone. She teamed her outfit with a pair of golden danglers. Neutral make-up shade with a dash of pink on the lips and almost nude eyes rounded off her look. Her hair was styled in a wavy tousled manner. (Source: Instagram)

MISS: Shruti Haasan's appearance in a black ball gown at the Vanitha Awards had left us disappointed. The floor-sweeping outfit from Amit GT had an applique work of black roses on the bodice and a voluminous satin skirt. We think the roses galore looked too old-school and the actor could have picked a better outfit. For the make-up, Haasan chose to go with dewy tones and a deep burgundy lip. She rounded out her look with a side-parted, sleek chignon. (Source: shreejarajgopal/ Instagram)

MISS: Lara Dutta opted for a sequinned thigh-high slit gown from Falguni and Shane Peacock, with a plunging neckline and ruffle detailing on the front. We think the flouncy ruffle work looked weird. To accentuate her frame, the actor wore a silver metallic belt cinched at the waist, which we wish stylist Eshaa Amiin had given a miss. She accessorised with a layered diamond bracelet and rounded off her look with minimal make-up. (Source: eshaamiin1/ Instagram)

HIT: For an earlier look during her Indonesia tour, Manushi Chhillar chose to go with a pale gold ensemble with heavy embellishments from Tex Saverio. Artist Bubah Alfian kept the Haryana girl’s make-up toned down to go with the subtle hue of her outfit. She rounded off her look with soft curls. (Source: manushi_chhillar/ Instagram)

HIT: Hansika Motwani was spotted in a fuss-free sleeveless blue dress from Pankaj and Nidhi. We like her easy-breezy style that works for both casual and semi-formal. Stylist Anisha Gandhi kept the accessories to a minimum with just a pair of silver hoops. We like her pink-tinted make-up and lips that rounded out her look nicely. (Source: ihansika/ Instagram)

MISS: Madhuri Dixit stepped out in a Rimple and Harpreet Narula outfit. Though we love the opulence of the piece, something the ace designers generally bring to their creations, we wish she had opted for a more trendy styling. To no one’s surprise, the designer duo’s royal blue anarkali was a lavish number. The two, who have been designing costumes for Bollywood’s period dramas like Padmaavat, Bajirao Mastani and others, have a reputation for opulent clothing with intricate embroidery. And keeping with their signature style, Dixit’s ethnic ensemble had generous gold embroidered patterns all over it. The outfit was teamed with a sheer light blue dupatta with gold border and we think it looked lovely. Stylist Ami Patel accessorised the look with a pair of gold jhumkis and a ring, keeping it easy in the accessory department. The Dhak Dhak girl went with a nude palette for make-up and pink-tinted matte lips. She rounded out her look with hair styled into a chignon. (Source: shnoy09/ Instagram)

HIT: Manushi Chhillar was spotted wearing a midnight blue bodycon fishtail gown during an event in Indonesia. We like the sequinned off-shoulder number from Maria Ruth Fernanda Couture, featuring tassel detailing on the bodice. We think Chhillar picked a great outfit to up her glamour quotient. She balanced out the glitzy gown by keeping it easy in the accessory department with just a pair of diamond danglers with a wink of blue. For the make-up, the beauty opted to go with a nude palette and neutral lips, while highlighting her eyes with a midnight blue hue. She rounded out her look with soft wavy hair and we think she looked gorgeous. (Source: manushi_chhillar/ Instagram)

HIT: Neha Dhupia stepped out in a chic black outfit to attend an event in Jaipur. The actor wore a black cropped top from Salita Nanda teamed with a colour crazy vibrant skirt from the same designer. We like the cute semi-sheer cape it was paired with. The outfit is chic and alluring for a fun evening party, and you can also opt for less colour if you’re going with heavier accessories. The actor kept the accessories to a minimum with a gold cuff and a floral patterned cocktail ring. (Source: nehadhupia/ Instagram)

MISS: Shruti Haasan stepped out in a monochrome white ensemble from Varun Bahl. We give the actor credit for tapping into the hot trend of monochromes, but the choice of the outfit was boring. Haasan wore a criss-cross patterned white top with tassel detailing at the hem that was teamed with a pleated skirt with frills at the hem. We wish stylist Shreeja Rajgopal could have added some element to give the outfit a bit of lift. To be fair, Rajgopal did try to add a pop of colour to the monochrome outfit by accessorising the actor’s look with a pair of green earrings from Hyperbole Accessories, but it was way too little and made no impact. The actor’s nude make-up was another disappointment and we wish she had gone with some colour on lips to balance out the pale colour of her outfit. She rounded out her look with middle-parted soft curls and highlighted brows. (Source: shreejarajgopal/ Instagram)

HIT: Genelia Deshmukh stepped out wearing a chic pair of striped pants from Bennch, which stylist Sanjana Batra teamed with a black top and layered with a vibrant blue Zara blazer, accentuated by white hem on the sleeves. Though the actor’s outfit was a combination of loud patterns and bold colours, we think she pulled it off fabulously. A round of applause goes to Batra for curating the ultra-sassy look. The actor rounded out her look with sleek middle-parted hair and minimal make-up. (Source: sanjanabatra/ Instagram)
