Remember when we used to watch everything in black and white? Well, the era left us decades ago but looks like Bollywood is not done with its fascination for black and white. And for a good reason – these are classic colours which when adorned with the right accessories and the perfect silhouette, can transform any girl next door into a Hollywood diva. Our Bollywood beauties have already experimented with white and now let’s talk about their fascination with monochromes.
A lot of big brands have jumped the bandwagon and started churning out clothes in monochrome, including big wigs like Zara, Mango and Topshop. Why? Because monochromes look effortlessly chic and can be worn in gorgeous variations. For example, black and white can be experimented with stripes, blocks, prints, polka dots or even gentle gradation. Since these two perfectly complement each other, they make the perfect combination to wear.
Without further ado, here are some Bollywood beauties who ROCK the monochrome style.
Think monochromes are boring? Think again because Deepika Padukone looks stunning in her two-piece black fish tail skirt paired and a plain white tank, finishing off her look with a breathtaking piece of Anmol statement necklace. She added an extra punch with a slick of hot red lipstick. Needless to say, she looked super chic.
And let’s not forget how similar her look was to Aishwarya Rai Bacchan’s 2013 Cannes interview session in a black Zac Posen mermaid skirt and white Saint Laurent shirt.
Aishwarya Rai Bacchan
How can any beauty and style list be complete without the mention of an ethereal beauty like Aishwarya Rai Bachchan? She opted for an “English” look and the hat was a smart touch!
It’s very rare to see someone like Aishwarya shed her inhibitions and opt for such a dark look, and that too during day time. Her dresses for the remainder of her duration in France were all monochromes, so it would be safe to say that the beauty steered clear of colour. And those blood red lips along with metallic manicure? She completely rocked it in the color black.
Here are some actresses who rocked the colour black.
The international fashion icon donned the cover of Harper’s Bazaar July issue in a monochromatic Gucci striped gown paired with Viange Vintage gold. Her smokey eyes and hair bouffant channeled Hollywood’s 60s vibe and we must say that Miss Kapoor pulled off this very difficult look effortlessly.
Can you blame these Bollywood divas for going down the monochromatic road? They look breathtaking in these outfits, shunning the myth that there’s very little style and variety when it comes to monochromes.
