Bollywood’s Desi girl has been away for a while now and she’s back in town with a bang! She wore two Sabyasachi sarees recently for the promotions of her upcoming movie “The Sky Is Pink.” And we feel that this red polka dot saree by the elite designer will perfectly fit in for your Diwali celebrations. The saree has an off-white base and PeeCee paired it with a full-sleeved red blouse. With her hair tied into a neat bun and pretty long earrings, the actress looks like a million dollars!

2. Alia Bhatt

Alia wore a breezy, printed red saree by Jaipur-based label Picchika by Urvashi Sethi to Durga pooja this year. She kept her style simple and elegant and paired the saree with a plain-vanilla sleeveless blouse. The only accessory she wore was a classic golden jhumka and she kept her hairstyle subtle with soft romantic waves. The 26-year-old star chose a clean-base makeup with nude lips and a dash of bronzer. If you are a fan of simple and elegant looks, you can follow Alia’s style for Diwali. With all the running around, your body will thank you for choosing something that will keep you comfy.

3. Kriti Sanon

Earlier this year, Kriti Sanon wore a beige-colored sequin saree by ace designer Manish Malhotra for Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations. The matching halter neck blouse and oversized earrings make her look drop-dead gorgeous! She chose a bit of brownish nude makeup with smokey eyes that accentuated her whole look. If you are someone who likes to cling on to the bling, this is one look you’ve got to try! Also, don’t forget the messy hair bun with the gajra to complete the stunning avatar.

4. Sonam Kapoor

Bollywood’s favorite fashionista who is hailed as the queen of trendsetters wore a simple dark green saree to the show Movies Masti With Maniesh Paul a few months ago. She came to the show along with co-star Rajkumar Rao in order to promote her movie Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga. Her saree, designed by Masaba Gupta was an all-in-one with ruffles, puffed-sleeves, and flares. The floral printed outfit had a square neckline and the black metallic silver jewelry totally complimented the overall look. Sonam’s makeup gave her a folksy look and her Cleopatra-style eyeliner was totally on point. If you want to look stylish without ditching the saree, this is what you should wear this festive season.

5. Karisma Kapoor

Even if she’s not acting in the movies, Karisma always has her own spot on Page 3 owing to her unmatchable dressing sense and evergreen elegance. This festive season, Karisma wore an off-white Anarkali with dark violet, statement-setting dupatta. The outfit by designer brand Ekaya was paired with long golden earrings that look ravishing on Karisma. This outfit is a must-try for everyone who loves to flaunt their dupattas.

6. Radhika Apte

Moving away from the regular saree/ salwar look, Radhika Apte chose something different this year. Just like her taste in movies, her taste in clothes is also very unique. She wore a champagne gold outfit from JADE by Monica and Karishma that looks really beautiful! The exquisitely handcrafted outfit boasts a shimmery boho glam and it has both pearl and golden work throughout the dress. Radhika didn’t wear any accessories for this look since the outfit is so majestic on its own. Well, if you want to replicate this look, we’d recommend you to try a huge single-stone stud with this dress. Also, don’t forget Radhika’s smokey eyes and maroon lipstick!

No matter what look you choose, don’t be reluctant to give it a little tweak of your own. Which one of these actresses won your heart? Let us know in the comments below. Also, have a happy, prosperous and safe Diwali ladies!
