Lrt Diaries — Bollywood Celebs Set Monochrome Trends In Black And White

Written by Fleur Xavier and Nethra RaghuramanOct 05, 2016
The Filmfare Awards 2015 red carpet saw a bevy of Bollywood actresses dressed in beautiful designer wear. Although there were several different styles of outfits, one thing that caught our eye is the number of celebrities who wore dresses in monochrome colours, which got us thinking – is black and white the emerging trend being set by the fashion conscious stars of Bollywood?

Some of the gorgeous ladies matched the 'Black Lady' (yes, we do mean the Filmfare trophy) as they turned up in sensational black outfits, including Alia Bhatt in a sexy Monisha Jaisingh gown, Tabu in shimmery Vizyon dress, Gauhar Khan in a Mayyur R Girotra tailed gown, Ileana D'cruz in caped suit by Nikhil Thampi and Kalki in a cropped saree also by Nikhil Thampi amongst others.

On the other hand stars like Deepika Padukone who opted for a ruffled Ashi Studio gown, Sonam Kapoor who chose a unique ensemble by Anamika Khanna and Shraddha Kapoor who wore a Shehla Khan gown chose elegant whites or off-whites to walk the red carpet.

Both colours were complemented with great styling and although all of them looked great, we're still deciding who ruled – black or white! What is clear though, is that, these two colors were the favourite for a dressy evening.
