It should come as no surprise to see that Malaika has championed contemporary festive looks over all these years. Her back-to-back traffic-stopping looks often come in a package of coveted elements long before they're officially trends. No, she doesn't do it just for the Gram, and her along with her stylist, Maneka Harisinghani, they create lust-worthy looks that just set our morning mood right. A recent outfit of hers that made us sigh in envy is this ombre sequin saree by Manish Malhotra, that also pushed us to take notes and get the gradient trend right.
This saree is from MM's recent larger-than-life collection, Ruhaaniyat, and is every bit as attention-worthy as his other styles. True, the ginger-bronze style is understated in itself, but the sequins and the ombré colours mark themselves as MVPs of the look. The actress went the traditional way while draping the saree, teaching us that sometimes, taking the classic route while styling a contemporary saree can prove to be the best bet. And since the earthy gradient hues also call for quite a few head-turns, it's best to keep the tone minimal and classy. Her sweetheart-necklined bralette-style blouse hit the right spot for a modern vibe.
While Malaika wore this stunning piece to judge the reality dance show, India's Best Dancer, you can wear it for the upcoming intimate Christmas bashes that await you. The diva wore her ombré piece with diamond-encrusted studs and a kundan ring, making the saree as the climax of the look. Her highlight-heavy waves are party-chic too, so take out your curler and opt for bouncy beach curls. To complement the bespoke shades on the outfit, you can douse yourself in a glowy bronzer and nude brown lips.
