Happy birthday, Alia Bhatt: Proof she has the perfect dress for every occasion
Alia Bhatt turns 27 today. To celebrate her special day, here's a guide to making a sartorial statement with dresses à la Alia Bhatt.
Much like her personality, Alia Bhatt’s sartorial disposition is also very real-girl-meets-cool-girl. Her choices are unpretentious and fuss-free. Whether she's wearing an easy lilac dress with a pair of edgy yellow heels or an eye-catching sequin dress with kimono sleeves, the Raazi actress brings a bit of understated elegance to all of her looks. No wonder then that her style choices have become some of the most-watched in Bollywood. And in case you were looking for some inspiration, most of Alia Bhatt’s looks are easy to recreate as well. From statement-making neon lehengas to luxury pyjama separates, Alia Bhatt offers an easy masterclass in millennial dressing.
However, when not in her trusty tracksuits or easy T-shirts, the star is partial to dresses — for everything from film promotional outings to the red carpet. To mark Alia Bhatt's 27th birthday (March 15), here are some pictures that spotlight her stellar style, and prove the actress keeps her dress collection as versatile as it can get.
Blazer dresses seem to be Alia Bhatt’s favourite. Cases in point? Her white Retrofête number with a ruched hem and that belted Roberta Einer plaid dress with fringe detailing. Bhatt’s versatile roster of dresses can easily make it to all your fashion mood boards — be it for a beachside vacay or a calendar populated with pool parties. So take note, and style similar ensembles the next time you're planning a special outing.
Creating your vacation checklist? Alia Bhatt’s knotted asymmetrical dress by Jonathan Simkhai with a midriff cut-out is made for beach bar hopping in Bali, while her rainbow-striped Missoni dress is as fitting for poolside drinks as it is for a rooftop weekend sundowner with the girls. Her doodle print pink tie-neck dress by Burberry is one of her many long, billowing dresses that are undeniably vacation-friendly. Recreate her breezy looks with some fun-coloured beach-ready slides and a set of statement sunglasses, and don't think twice about picking up the next straw hat you find.
If you’re looking to channel your inner party girl, you will find your fashion match in Alia Bhatt’s floral Stella McCartney jacquard mini, featuring statement sleeves and paired with pop-coloured heels — perfect for that glamorous date night at a swanky bar. Her red candy-striped Silvia Tcherassi calf-skimming dress, on the other hand, is what you need for a mid-week dinner at your favourite restaurant.
Hosting friends for board games and gin cocktails? Choose a monochrome floral print-on-print dress, like the star’s Michael Kors number, to get your hostess on. And if your party wardrobe has you in a fix, fret not. Let Alia Bhatt lead the way — choose a sequinned dress with leg slits for a night out with the friends, like Bhatt's Michael Costello look, or a midi one, like her Ralph Lauren one for a festive party with your inner circle.
