From goth-inspired playful pieces to slinky diamond hoops and studs, Bollywood really did impress us with their latest looks
The Nykaa Femina Beauty Awards was a starry affair, and we mean quite literally; everywhere we looked, we saw diamonds and cheerful coloured gems glistening on the celeb fashionistas. But we loved how the millennial icons kept things fancy, and yet not too dressy or jumpy. We spotted a lot of slinky diamond earrings, mood-switching petite diamond necklaces and a whole lot more. Here’s a closer look at the best celeb looks from The Nykaa Femina Beauty Awards 2020:
Deepika Padukone absolutely ruled the red carpet in her vintage but racy look complete with layered diamond necklaces and diamond shoulder-duster earrings; at this point we have to credit her stylist Shaleena Nathani for figuring out exactly what works for the actor. Deepika’s monochrome look is relaxed, fancy-free and terrifically classic and prim, and may even be her best look yet.
Anushka Sharma let her breathy, earthy makeup shine as she ditched all bling except her dainty drop earrings featuring champagne coloured diamonds (brown diamonds are huge in the global scene too); her look works for us, although she could have easily added some funky faux piercings and diamond rings too.
Asha Negi pleasantly surprised us with her spirited but low-key bling for the night; her shimmery diamond earrings by Lashyaa were sophisticated, understated, yet noticeable and went perfectly with her sequined Ports 1961 gown.
Katrina Kaif is finally taking some risks and all the right ones too! The star who’s not a big fan of high jewellery opted for some oversized diamond hoops for the event, which went really well with her white structured gown.
As much as we love dainty diamond necklaces, Aahana Kumra’s look is almost too basic; her single-string diamond necklace by Izaara is too boring. There was obviously room for some more drama in her look, without compromising on the minimalism. Maybe some expensive Balinese gemstones strung on a droopy choker or even some layered chains?
Sapna Pabbi went for a racy vibe with her cocktail, slitted gown and diamond jewellery, and we love it! Her diamond necklace and earrings from Rajesh Tulisiani are just the right kind of extravagant and amp up her look. Her diamond necklace features asymmetrically cut stones which add a chic edge to her get-up. This is also a great tip for styling black evening gowns: Go for a quirky diamond necklace, instead of something basic.
Trust Shruti Haasan to go for goth when we least expect it; the starlet kept things super classy with a slew of funky diamond rings of myriad shapes and sizes and some diamond stud earrings to go with her dusky silver dress. This is also a great hack for styling monochromes; Shruti’s dark pout and playful bling is very youthful and original.
Rakul Preet Singh
Rakul Preet pleasantly surprised us with her minimal look; she opted for a pair of sleek, no-nonsense diamond earrings by Lalchand Dhalamall Sons(Mumbai); the danglers add a dash of class to her look, and goes perfectly with her all-white ensemble.
