Other than fasting and praying for the safety and long life of husbands and fiances, Karwa Chauth also serves as one of those days where women recreate their bridal look, and if not, at least dress up in vibrant ethnic wear. Even though this may sound fun, for some it can get really difficult to stand out in the crowd.
To make your life easier, we have curated a few looks of Bollywood celebrities for inspiration. Right from Alia Bhatt’s bright chartreuse lehenga to Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s gold embellished sari, Katrina Kaif’s beautiful take on red lehengas to Shilpa Shetty’s unusual ways of draping saris, here’s a compilation of some of the best ethnic otfits sported by the fashionistas.
Sonam Kapoor stepped out in a bright blue lehenga set from designers Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla and the simplicity of the lightly embellished number had an old-school charm to it. Stylist Rhea Kapoor accentuated the actor’s look by accessorising it with a pair of statement earrings from Gehna Jewels.
Make-up tip: Prominent smokey eyes will round out your look nicely.

Karisma Kapoor looked absolutely stunning in a Sabyasachi lehenga and jewellery. The green blouse was matched with a flowy floral lehenga and accessorised with an elaborate choker necklace, maang tika and a bangle on each hand.
Make-up tip: A neutral make-up palette will be preferable with this look.

Kapoor also showed how to ace an all-white lehenga – by teaming it with a bright-hued dupatta and statement jhumkas.
Make-up tip: Opt for light pink lips.

Malaika Arora opted for a muted coloured lehenga that was teamed with a semi-sheer dupatta draped in an unusual manner. Although it was her oversized, statement neckpiece that was the highlight of her look.
Make-up: Too much make-up will spoil the look.

Katrina Kaif donned a red lehenga while attending an event and we can’t get over how beautiful she looked. From the house of Anamika Khanna, the lehenga had a threadwork embroidery that muted down the flamboyancy of the lehenga. We love how stylist Tanya Ghavri paired it with a pearl necklace that nested elegantly against the actor’s neck.
Make-up: Keep your make-up muted.

On another occasion, Kaif looked ethereal in a red and beige lehenga from Manish Malhotra, teamed with a red semi-sheer dupatta. Keeping her accessories and make-up minimal, she went for a diamond choker and soft wavy hairdo.
Make-up: Keep your hair open and make-up neutral.

Looking truly elegant, Alia Bhatt opted for a chartreuse lehenga featuring floral golden embroidery on it from Sabyasachi. She teamed with a matching sheer dupatta with golden borders. Styled by Ami Patel and Sanjay Kumar Dauhaliya, the duo further accessorised her monotone ensemble with heavy jewellery that included a statement pearl beaded choker and maang tikka, also from Sabyasachi.
Make-up tip: Opt for nude lips to balance the bright colours.

Aditi Rao Hydari opted for an elegant outfit that included a black and gold lehenga featuring colourful embroidery oll over it.
Make-up tip: Hair tied in an updo or kept open will wonders with this outfit.

Deepika Padukone grabbed all our attention when she stepped out clad in an ivory saree by Sabyasachi. Curated by celebrity stylist Shaleena Nathani, she teamed the floral printed sari with a matching sleeveless blouse. We absolutely love the statement golden necklace, also from Sabyasachi that added a lot of elegance to her look.
Make-up tip: A minimal make-up palette will look great.

Anushka Sharma was seen donning a deep green sari with a heavy golden border and polka dots all over, produced by local artisans. She looked lovely but we couldn’t help but wonder why she paired it with a velvet blouse. In this case, we think a silk one would have made more sense and would have definitely added to the regalness that the sari exuded. Her outfit was styled with a heavy gold choker, a stack of gold bangles and simple studs.
Make-up: Hair tied in a neat updo will do justice to the look.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was seen in a glorious Manish Malhotra sari in gold. The heavily embellished semi-sheer creation was accessorised with a pair of gold danglers and a cocktail ring. We think giving the neckpiece a miss was a clever choice, with the glittery gold of the sari adding all the oomph needed.
Make-up tip: A light palette with bold red lips will look good with this outfit.

Bhatt looked splendid in a dual toned sari from Manish Malhotra. The gorgeous ensemble featured two different shades of pink with gold embroidery on the hemline. Stylist Ami Patel teamed it with a matching cut-shoulder, blouse and accessorised with a pair of statement earrings.
Make-up tip: Matching lips will complement the look.

When it comes to experimenting with a sari, nobody does it better than Shilpa Shetty Kundra. The actor pulled off an interesting look in a Shantanu and Nikhil creation that included a magenta ruffle sari teamed with an off-shoulder magenta and gold blouse. Gold earrings from Flowerchild, tousled hair styled by Sheetal Khan and make-up by Ajay Shelar rounded out the look. Needless to say, the actor looked gorgeous and the belted design at the waist complemented her svelte frame.
Make-up tip: Dark smokey will go well with this look.

Priyanka Chopra picked a beautiful sari from Tarun Tahiliani’s collection. Draped in a lilac georgette sari that was accentuated with intricate lacework and French knot appliqué border, the actor looked lovely. We particularly like the matching deep-back blouse with embellished fringes on the sleeves.
Make-up tip: Go for bold lip shades.
