Kiara Advani's sartorial looks have been the point of reference for many of us. When she's not rocking lust-worthy neon pantsuits or bodycon dresses, the diva often marks her aesthetics as a modern traditionalist with her festive looks. Her roster of ethnic styles is often re-imaginations with a pinch of contemporary. The latest addition to it is this modified gharara set from Arpita Mehta's latest collection, Blurred Lines 2020, that Kiara rocks with a lot of oomph.
Undoubtedly a contemporary rendition of the classic gharara, this berry-hued style with a plunging sweetheart neckline on the embroidered blouse is not for the faint-hearted. We love the mish-mash of current trends, with retro-chic polka dots on the pants (never not trending) and leheriya-inspired stripe dupatta. Giving it a touch of bohemian are the chic cowrie shells. Since gharara sets are cinched at the knee and super-flared at the hemlines, we love how the latter is accentuated with a geometric-patterned embroidery. If you want to explore your dupatta-draping skills, take notes from this look, and style it like a saree's pallu.
The diva looked extremely 'Preeti' (pun intended) as her stylist for the look, Eka Lakhani, paired a classy three-tier kundan choker with the outfit. This fail-proof combo works for every occasion, making it a classy investment.
Kiara's glowing skin did most of the talking, along with little to none pink blush. She also makes a strong case for winged eyeliner, which makes us want to master the cat-eye ASAP. Her care-free blown-out waves make the overall look lean toward young and chic, as opposed to the run-off-the-mill pin-straight hair.
