Who hasn't salivated in front of a big screen in a theater or a small screen of your TV watching our favourite Bollywood actresses shimmy about in stunning creations! Especially when it comes to elaborate Indian wear. So we have rounded up some of the most iconic lehengas from Indian movies that you'd want to get for yourself, regardless if you are the bride or the bridesmaid!
1. Aishwarya Rai - Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam
This is a statement lehenga, especially if you are planning on doing a performance at the sangeet! Plenty of twirl, a gush of turquoise and not only will you be the object of envy for everyone, you'll be breaking the monotony that comes with typical wedding hues like red and golden!
2. Deepika Padukone - Ram Leela
Ah, yellow! This is a really understated colour that is also underrated! A yellow shade is perfect for a day wedding, or any event leading up to the marriage happening under the sun. The soft hues, and the vibrant colour is going to definitely work in your favour!
3. Sonam Kapoor - Dolly Ki Doli
Dark purple and electric blue are colours you seldom associate with lehengas, especially for weddings. But if you are a rule-breaker and a trendsetter, this is exactly the lehenga to your liking! Lots of stunning brocade, jacquard, and silk will be shimmering in its glory in these colours!
4. Madhuri Dixit - Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani
Let's be honest, who doesn't love a bright golden lehenga to make the most of a sangeet? Looking like liquid gold, with red and black accents -you can give your lehenga a fun twist. Especially as these colours usually spell a night out in club, you can definitely aim to be the belle of the ball in this lehenga!
5. Preity Zinta - Kal Ho Na Ho
Back in the day when this movie came out, it included so many fashion statements, and that was extremely aspirational! This lehenga especially revolutionized the idea of wedding wear being very opulent and overdone. Beige lehenga with light blue accents is quite an elegant piece, and perfect for sangeet, and even wedding!
6. Kareena Kapoor - Gori Tere Pyaar Mein
We love how garba-esque this outfit is! Black with pops of red and pink make this piece fun and young without compromising on the traditional aspect! Accessorize it with some nice silver jewellery and dance the night away!
7. Katrina Kaif - Baar Baar Dekho
This is quite the perfect lehenga for a wedding brunch, or a floral themed mehendi! Floral lehengas with quirky accessories are a must-have during the season. Have a fun and girly themed mehendi or brunch for all of your favourite people and bask in the glory of all the compliments!
8. Alia Bhatt - Student Of The Year
Now this is what we call a party lehenga! Young, flirty, twirly, and full of shimmering pops of colour! This is perfect for a cocktail sangeet, where everyone is essentially just merry and in the mood to shake on too many legs!
9. Anushka Sharma - Ae Dil Hai Mushkil
If you want to add a traditionally Mughal theme to your outfit, this lehenga fits the bill. But it also fits the bill if it's your own sangeet or wedding! Understated, yet full of bling and colours, this is when you want some subtle ostentatiousness and glamour!
