Know the Bollywood-inspired ethnic ensembles in vogue this festive season
Fashion and Bollywood have long been closely associated with each other. If fashion breathes glamour and style in Bollywood movies, making them enriched in their appeal, the Bollywood offers a larger-than-life medium to inspire fashion trends and give a pronounced effect to style. Whether it is bringing out the beauty of the Indian culture, adding an Indo-Western twist to an ensemble, or oozing a prominent contemporary vibe, Bollywood redefines the fashion game with a touch of creativity and exclusivity.
As we continue to revel in the festive vibe, it is hard to look at festive clothing minus the influence of Bollywood and Bollywood stars on the styles, cuts, silhouettes and designs. While Bollywood stars take the fashion game beyond movies and extend a star value to their off-screen fashion, we take a look at the finest ethnic wear adorned by Bollywood stars in recent times.
