Bipasha was styled to perfection in this black and gold Sabyasachi number at the inauguration of a jewelry store in Sharjah. She accessorized with a matching belt and clutched, and topped off the look with a chic faux-bob.

2. Kareena Kapoor in Payal Khandwala


Kareena wore this beautiful brocade kurta-and-skirt combo to the opening ceremony of the International Children’s Film Festival. With her hair in a simply ponytail and carrying a floral Anita Dongre box clutch, Kareena opted for a statement necklace by Suhani Pittie, a choice that really elevated this look.

3. Sonam Kapoor in Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla

Sonam never fails to impress in Cannes, and this year was no exception! Her best look came during a press junket at the Hotel Martinez, where she donned this stunning Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla sari with a sheer laser cut blouse. It was a bold, provocative look, and one that Ms. Kapoor worked to perfection!

4. Deepika Padukone in Sabyasachi


On anyone else, this sparkly Sabyasachi sari might have been a disaster, but on Deepika, it truly shone! Her height and frame, along with the elegant drape of the sari, kept this look from being overwhelming, and her understated makeup and low bun let the sari to do all the talking.

5. Nargis Fakhri in Priyal Prakash


Nargis rarely opts for Desi looks, but when she does, she works them like no one else! She chose this chevron print Priyal Prakash lehenga for a bridal event in London, and paired it with black off-the-shoulder top and a hasli neckpiece.

6. Bipasha Basu in Sabyasachi (II)

Bips and Sabyasachi certainly are a winning combination! The duo are making their second appearance together on this list for this ornate green jacket and anarkali combo. Once again, Bipasha was styled impeccably, with emerald and gold jewelry by Anmol accenting her look.

7. Aishwarya Rai in Rohit Bal


Aish looked drop dead gorgeous in this ivory and gold Rohit Bal anarkali at the opening of a Kalyan Jewellers store in Chennai. Her gorgeous face shone in understated makeup, framed by a tight bun and kundan and pearl earrings. The mogra in her hair was the cherry on top of the sundae!

8. Sridevi in Manish Malhotra


No one can rock a sari quite like Sridevi can! This heavily embellished Manish Malhotra look was tough to pull off, but the veteran actress managed it with ease. The elegant drape and pastel shade of the sari helped offset its blingy-ness, and her hair and makeup complemented the look perfectly.

9. Kareena Kapoor in Dev R Nil


East meets West in perfect harmony! Attending attending a panel discussion at the HT Leadership summit in Delhi, Bebo skipped a traditional blouse, choosing instead to pair this gorgeous Dev R Nil with a vintage Christian Lacroix jacket. She finished off the look with smoky eyes and a statement Amrapali necklace. Sure, sometimes less is more…but this look just goes to show that sometimes more is more, too!

10. Aditi Rao Hydari in Masaba


Aditi wore this adorable polka dot Masaba sari to the PK success bash. The design was young and fresh, and her nude makeup and ponytail kept the look casual. More importantly? It wasn’t a look we saw on any other stars this year. Extra points for originality!
