Sara Ali Khan
Sara Ali Khan loves her kurtas and dresses, but crop tops are a clear favourite for the young star. The actress keeps coming back to this wardrobe staple for her outings, be it for a workout session, a casual dinner in the city or even for red carpet events. On January 15, the star showed off her midriff in a white off-shoulder crop top by Bambah, which featured pink polka dots and multi-tiered ruffled sleeves. Spotted out and about with Katrik Aaryan in Mumbai — whom she will soon be seen sharing screen space with in Love Aaj Kal 2 — Sara Ali Khan paired her crop top with a pair of blue denim shorts by Manish Arora embroidered with multicoloured sequin hearts, which gave her look a quirky spin. She accessorised her crop top and shorts combo with a pair of strappy heels and a chunky ring.
Janhvi Kapoor has been gaining attention for her sartorial choices ever since her Bollywood debut in 2018. Whether the actress is stepping out for a workout or walking a red carpet, she never fails to surprise her followers with her ensembles. With fun colours, interesting silhouettes and millennial-approved looks, the Ghost Stories star can never be accused of having a boring style. The latest addition to her ever-evolving closet? A colour-blocked playsuit by label Patinya, worn for a shoot with film critic Rajeev Masand on January 15 in Mumbai. The asymmetrical number, which came in lilac and powder pink, featured an extra flap of fabric on its front to create the illusion of a mini dress. It was styled with a neon vinyl belt. To complete her outfit, Janhvi Kapoor added one more unexpected hue to the mix by way of her accessories, picking a pair of quirky heart-shaped Olivia Dar earrings in hot pink. The star’s look proves that colourful pairings are worth the risk.
Shraddha Kapoor is currently gearing up for her first 2020 release, Street Dancer 3D — the third instalment of the ABCD franchise. On January 14, the actress stepped out in Mumbai for the promotional round of the movie along with co-star Varun Dhawan to make an appearance on a reality television show. For the outing, Kapoor chose a black outfit from Reem Acra’s autumn/winter 2019 collection. The two-piece look came with a top featuring tie-up shoulder straps, and wide-legged bottoms in velvet. The highlight of her ensemble was definitely the luxe crop top. The Beirut-based designer used floral brocade to craft the top, adding a regal touch to the look. For Shraddha Kapoor’s latest outing, a pair of gold earrings by Jet Gems served as a statement accessory. Her choice of footwear — strappy gold stilettos by Jimmy Choo — complemented her outfit seamlessly, while the minimal choice of jewellery ensured that her romantic brocade blouse remained the hero of the look.
On January 11, Instagram feeds filled up with pictures from this year’s edition of the Zine Cine Awards Telugu, which took place in Hyderabad. On the guest list were notable stars including Ram Pothineni, Shraddha Srinath, Chiranjeevi and of course, Samantha Akkineni. Not only did Akkineni nab an award for her movies Oh! Baby and Majili, she also made sure to catch everyone’s attention in her look for the evening: a show-stopping yellow Jonathan Simkhai dress. The see-through lace number featured an in-built bustier and a ruffled asymmetrical hemline. With a dress as dramatic as hers, she balanced the look with minimal accessories: Samantha Akkineni styled her head-to-toe yellow dress with a pair of matching embellished Manolo Blahnik pumps and a pair of delicate sapphire drop earrings by House of Aynat.
