Bollywood movies are the primary source of entertainment for most Indians and they have evolved and how! Be it with respect to storylines, screenplays, female characters and fashion, obviously (We’re still waiting for that to happen with Indian TV, TBH). Amongst all things that can make or break a film, costumes is an important one. And when it comes to fashion, these movies definitely managed to crack the code. Let’s check out 6 of our favourite high fashion Bollywood movies that you can certainly take inspiration from!
 

Aisha

This movie was loved by everyone for its ‘Gossip Girl’ inspired costumes and Pernia Qureshi did a brilliant job styling Sonam Kapoor, Ira Dubey, Amrita Puri, Lisa Haydon and Abhay Deol. The 2010 movie which was an adaptation of Jane Austin’s book ‘Emma’ proved to be a style inspiration for many!

 

Dil Dhadakne Do

The styling in ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’ was all about easy-breezy silhouettes and had everything from retro hats to party dresses, jackets, culottes and more! The film was shot on a cruise and also amidst exotic locations like Istanbul. The outfits looked perfect with the picturesque backdrops increasing the aesthetic appeal of the film and made us want to steal Anushka and Priyanka’s pieces.

 

Cocktail

The Saif Ali Khan, Deepika Padukone and Diana Penty starrer was like a breath of fresh air to the Bollywood fashion scene. From Deepika’s urban chic looks to Diana’s subtle style transition from ethnic to casual western, we loved almost everything about the styling of the movie! Vogue fashion editor Anaita Shroff Adajania also won the Colours Screen Award for the best costume for this film. Extremely well deserved, we must say.

 

Dostana

The movie was a hit, sure. But along with the movie what else became a huge hit was Priyanka’s ‘Desi Girl’ saree! Every girl wanted to dress like Priyanka who wore a quintessential Manish Malhotra number. Not just that, the movie’s costumes will give you some major summer holiday inspo!

 

Fashion

This movie starred Bollywood’s fashion icons Priyanka Chopra and Kangana Ranaut, it obviously had to be a fashion riot. Apart from showing us the supposed reality of the industry, ‘Fashion’ also gave us some stunning runway looks to take inspiration from. Our favourite? Kangana’s black gown, for sure!

 

Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani

Looking for some fashion inspo for ethnic, festive, wedding wear? Watch YJHD. From Deepika’s stunning blue cocktail saree to her sexy haldi lehenga, we couldn’t decide which one was our favourite. Kudos to Manish Malhotra and Samidha Wangnoo for creating magic with the costumes!
