Sashay in a red sari a’la Sonam Kapoor! We absolutely adore this fashionista. Sonam has a way with ethnic outfits as well as western wear. You can recreate this look by pairing your simple blood red sari with a black embellished blouse and a gorgeous updo. Keep the accessories to a bare minimum.
Beauty in black, Diana Penty, rocks this gown that can also double up as a long kameez. If you choose to Indianize an outfit like this, just carry a studded clutch and drape a sheer dupatta around your wrists.
If you are a fan of the floor-length Anarkali, then give this look a shot. Bollywood beauty Jacqueline Fernandez personifies grace in this carrot orange and pink Anarkali. So modest yet so sexy! Wear yours on stilettos, with some antique-finished gold and pearl jewellery; and dress your hair in a long French style braid.
If you have a midriff to die for, flaunt it in a small lehnga-choli just the way Ileana did during Lakme Fashion Week a few months ago. This hot pink lehnga-choli, with a waistband that runs up into a neck chain, looks uber stylish yet so simple on Ileana.
If you want to westernize your lehnga-choli, take some tips from Karisma Kapoor. We think Lolo looks absolutely stunning in this Indo-western halter midriff top and a long flowy mint blue lehnga (or should I call it a maxi skirt?) This diva always scores 10 on 10 with fashion.

Do you want to be the bold and beautiful sex-icon just like Nargis Fakhri? Take a look at her outfit – the deep plunging neckline of her mint blue blouse and the rose pink lehnga accentuates all her curves the right way. Recreate this look with soft beach waves in the hair and only a statement choker for added oomph.
Pastel shades will never go out of style and Shruti Haasan knows that alright! We love this powder pink number that Shruti wore at the LFW. You can work with any pastel shade of your choice and add some pearly embellishment to make it seem dream-like. Keep your makeup nude or natural.
