On Malaika Arora's birthday, here's a look at her stunning style
With Arjun Kapoor by her side, Malaika Arora partied the night away with her famous friends and family.
Malaika Arora has not only been captivating the entertainment industry for over two decades, she's also cemented her status as a fashion icon through the years. Her sartorial choices over the years have been equal parts glamorous and game-changing.
Whether she wears an unapologetically sexy Manish Malhotra dress or an understated Zara jumpsuit, or pairs her looks with her classic red lip or by having rumoured boyfriend, actor Arjun Kapoor, at her side, the star knows exactly how to make a statement. Since starting off as an MTV VJ in the 90s', Arora continues to push fashion boundaries.
And while her fans might be convinced that she seems to be aging backwards, on Wednesday, October 23, is her birthday — and she turned 45. She celebrated the momentous occasion with a glam birthday bash in Mumbai.
With Arjun Kapoor by her side, Malaika Arora partied the night away with her famous friends and family. Celebs like Kareena Kapoor, Akshay Kumar, Twinkle Khanna, Karisma Kapoor, Amrita Arora, Janhvi Kapoor, Shanaya Kapoor, Ananya Panday, Arjun Rampal, Shilpa Shetty Kundra, Rajkummar Rao, Patralekha, Aadar Jain and Tara Sutaria were spotted at Malaika Arora's birthday party.

Malaika Arora has been stepping onto the red carpet in memorable outfits that elicit audible gasps, but when it comes to combining daring, sexy staples with athleisure ones, she's your go-to girl.
A penchant for statement all-white ensembles — her style mantra really does seem to be 'when in doubt, throw on some white to make your outfit 10 times more sophisticated' — and eye-catching prints make Arora's street style eclectic, polished, and impossibly cool.
On her birthday, check out eight outfit ideas you'll want to steal right now from the unapologetically sexy Malaika Arora:

Malaika Arora’s recent red carpet appearances have proved one thing: her outfits are anything but boring. And testimony to this statement is the India’s Got Talent judge's look from the Vogue Beauty Awards 2019 in September, where the star chose a romantic white gown by Aadnevik.
Featuring pretty eyelet details, the breezy number stood out for its simplicity, and the highlight of her dress was her maxi gown’s thigh-high slit. Layered rings were her choice for the evening. With her hair lightly blow-dried, Arora completed her look with shimmery makeup: champagne gold glitter on the eyelids, coats of mascara and glossy deep red lips.

There’s no denying that when it comes to gym wear, Malaika Arora‘s wardrobe is full of cool looks. Whether it’s adding a printed jacket or sprucing up her look with a pair of neon sneakers, Arora has proven time and again that she’s a pro at taking basic workout looks a notch higher.
Spotted at the gym in July, the fitness enthusiast was seen in an all-black workout look, but this time with a whole new twist. Instead of basic black separates, Arora went with a cut-out sports bra, which she wore with matching ripped leggings. The combination is perfect for anyone who loves risqué silhouettes.

One wardrobe staple that has always won Malaika Arora’s nod of approval is the white dress. Every now and then, the actor is seen favouring different iterations of this wardrobe classic, be it an off-shoulder mini ruffled dress or a maxi number. In June, Arora was seen in a midi white dress once again in Mumbai.
Given the casual nature of her outing, the star rounded off her look with a pair of black sunglasses and brown flip-flops that are just perfect for the Mumbai rains. She picked a strappy white dress which featured a plunging neckline and a triangular cut-out at the waist to share a peek at her perfectly toned midriff. The actor wore her low-key ensemble with barely-there makeup, and tied her hair back in a bun.

In May, Malaika Arora and actor Arjun Kapoor were seen in Mumbai at the screening of the latter’s movie, India’s Most Wanted. The movie premiere also doubled up as date night for the duo, who both gave a nod to the logomania trend with their outfits.
While Arora teamed her flared jeans with a Balmain bodysuit that flattered her slender frame, her rumoured boyfriend complemented her laid back look with a black Gucci T-shirt, jeans and a black baseball cap. A small sling bag in emerald green worked as Arora’s go-to accessory for the date night.
Arora kept things effortless with her long tresses left open and minimal makeup—black eyeliner and a brown matte lip, leaving her base bare. The impact of her look was casual, yet streamlined.

Malaika Arora has never been afraid of experimenting. In May, Arora made a statement once again by picking a slinky slip dress, but in a cool camouflage print. For a sweet yet strong look, she wore her military-inspired dress with metallic heels and a green sling bag for her dinner outing.
The most exciting accessory, however, was the pearl-studded barrette she wore in her hair. The strappy midi was crafted out of light, satin fabric that made it perfect for casual dinner plans. Beauty wise, Arora went with her signature look yet again: dewy makeup, nude lips and mascara, and that barette was an interesting addition to the overall look.
