Indian outfits are now not just about bright bursts of colours, layering of sparkly sequins and saris hauled down by heavy-weight materials. This season, Bollywood's best-dressed ladies desired pastel tones even more than their essential sparkling lehengas and traditional Manish Malhotras.
At Ahana Deol's February season wedding, her sister Esha Deol went as far as corresponding her saffron coloured Shyamal & Bhumika with a stylish studded sling for her damaged arm. Anushka Manchanda appeared at the sangeet showcasing an edgy spikey harness over the top of her deep blue lehenga. Deepika Padukone and Sonakshi Sinha wore the same hues, commending the stylish newly weds in a bright yellow sari and royal blue anarkali.
Kangana Ranaut kept the bright colours very much alive this year with her multi-coloured Manish Arora suit. But the most vibrant sari award had to go to Vidya Balan. This year, she wore chiffons in bright pink and deep yellow. The sunset hues were also a top choice with Dia Mirza, the second biggest bride of 2014.
Going down the softer route, shades of soft blue and baby pink were a definite favourite. Kareena Kapoor Khan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan went for hazy rose and bright coral, while Priyanka Chopra and Jacqueline Fernandez chose baby blue.
Though Sonam Kapoor drenched herself within the brightest and liveliest of prints when endorsing her recent movie Khoobsurat, She went for a simplistic white Indian look, her Tarun Tahiliani sari and ivory Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla was undoubtedly her most stylish looks of the year so far.
The third main wedding that happened this year was Arpita Khan's. Each guest's stunning red carpet look was to die for, beginning with Sonakshi Sinha’s bright red Manish Malhotra, shadowed by Shraddha Kapoor's simple Shivan & Narresh sari.
