Remember, I had written about Kalki’s look in Dev D and That Girl in Yellow Boots recently? I hope you tried out the looks (and stunned everyone with your makeover). Let’s check out her style from three more of her popular Bollywood movies.
If you like Goth, but don’t want to wear too much makeup, this style might appeal to you. Wear a black strappy bandage dress, pair it with black Mary Janes, paint your nails black, put on a black and white beaded bangle, and some black eye liner. And if you want a more Goth-y, all-black look, switch this bangle for a black one, along with heavily hooded eyes and dark lips. What do you need to rock this look apart from the dress and accessories? Tons of sexy attitude!
What comes to mind when you think of ethnic wear? A pretty girl eating aloo tikki at a Punjabi wedding in a jazzy ghagra choli replete with sequins, or maybe a jhola-donning journalist in a maroon cotton kurta and Kolhapuri chappals. In Shanghai Kalki shows us how to look effortlessly chic and chilled out in ethnic wear. Pair a crisp white kurta (sleeve length is left to your discretion) with brightly coloured leggings, and tone down the brightness with a scarf/stole/dupatta in pastel shades. I think flat sandals would be ideal, but you can also try kitten heels. Make up would kill the look; apply lip balm generously for supple lips. Keeping accessories to a bare minimum, wear only a slim watch. Easy peasy!
Not too many girls would say no to the Chanel jacket, Hermes or Tod’s bag that Kalki was seen sporting in Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. Sigh! Let’s try to recreate her look in the movie, minus the designer bags (Bagwati et al). I wanted to take a classy strapless dress and make it a little casual by pairing it with playful wedges. I think it works! Couple it with a smart clutch and feminine watch. And if you want a more dapper look, trade the wedge heels for off-white or nude pumps, and for a more fun look, try experimenting with neon peep toe pumps.
