An intimate affair

The fashion fraternity curates an array of stunning celebrity looks to lend colours to the muted Eid celebrations

This Eid, as celebrations are more intimate, the fashion fraternity have curated an array of stylish and fabulous celebrity looks for you. From fuss free silhouettes to colours to boost your festive mood, the collections are versatile and can be styled in multiple ways to assure both sustainability and value for money.


Brand: Lovetobag

  • The black metal beads potli dazzles actor Shanaya Kapoor’s ensemble to the T. Elegant and timeless, this piece of art is hand-embroidered with fine beads in an awe-inspiring pattern. 
  • Actor Surveen Chawla flaunts the panache potli with elan. Inspired by the opulence of the golden period in the French history called La Belle Époque, this potli is hand-embroidered with Japanese bugle beads. The tiered tassel in neutral tones adds a vintage touch to the design.

Style it right: The black metal beads potli and the panache potli can be styled as a sling pouch or a short classic handbag and can be paired with an ornate Lovetobag handle. The potli can be adorned with an array of Indian and western outfits. You can carry it as a sling bag with your blue denim, classic blouses, maxis and evening ensembles. It also gives a classic yet contemporary look when paired with traditional Indian attires such as lehengas and sarees.

Style it right: All three anarkalis – red sufi, sona blue and suhana can be worn either for day or night occasion.

The ensemble comprises of a floral mix-print kali jacket with delicate zardozi and sequence embroidery around the neckline and center front to add a touch of gold, a geometric print inner and straight fit ankle length pants.

Style yourself with versatility and comfort for the season of celebration.


Brand: Amaris by Prerna Rajpal

  • The time turner choker is an epitome of grace and royalty. An interplay of precious stones and Mughal motifs, the design celebrates intricate craftsmanship. Wearing this piece of art is actor Deepika Padukone. If you look closer you can see the three Russian emeralds take centre-stage. The piece is adored with uncut diamonds, pearls and tanzanite and the pastel colour tone creates a classic and coveted look.
  • Actor Kiara Advani looks stunning in the Nizam choker, which pays ode to the romance of the Mughals. This piece of art features a 35-carat Zambian carved emerald surrounded by uncut diamonds in an open polki setting.
  • The blue revolution worn by Mira Kapoor is a timeless beauty. The design details feature a blue sapphire, a princess cut and marquise shaped diamonds. A modern-day piece with clean cut lines, the ring will bring warmth and colour to your ring wardrobe.

Style it right: The time turner choker blends well with Indo-western gowns, pre-pleated sarees or even contemporary co-ord sets. Ring in the celebrations with the blue revolution ring and pair it with a green or deep yellow western outfit or pre-pleated saree. Keeping in mind the contemporary look and feel of the Nizam choker, it looks stunning on bold neckline blouses and stands out with green and ivory outfits.
