Alia Bhatt is one of the many star children who have literally grown up in front of their audiences and within filmy circles. The daughter of Soni Razdan and Mahesh Bhatt, she definitely had the right gene pool to become the power house performer she is today. Alia’s impactful work is what makes her a force to be reckoned with but she knows that as an actress in Bollywood, it’s all about the glam as well. Perhaps why she chose from within her inner coterie to dress her for her debut film Student Of The Year.

Manish Malhotra has been a favourite of Bollywood divas since his foray into styling and designing in the 90s. His inimitable knack for keeping his creations relevant and appealing to a younger generation has earned him a place on the speed dials of millennial starlets as well. Alia Bhatt is one such ride-or-die who often calls upon him to dress her for everything from film promotions to wedding soirees. A flip through her looks over a years will prove that she’s been seen in a Manish Malhotra creation for every event on her social calendar.

Most recently Alia was seen in a plethora of Manish Malhotra designs for the promotional rounds of her latest movie Kalank. An effortless transition as he was also the costume designer for her character on screen as well. Cementing their relationship as creator and muse even further. It’s extremely apparent that whenever Alia finds herself needing to dress in her Indian ethnic best, she looks to her trusted friend and ace fashion designer. And he has never let her down ensuring she turns heads in a statement worthy ensemble in every silhouette he has on offer.


Indian ethnic separates are definitely a wardrobe staple for most women so it comes as no surprise that Alia is also rather partial to them especially for less formal occasions. She has been seen in a number of Manish Malhotra designs ranging from palazzo sets to anarkali kurtas to churidhar kurtas and salwar suits. Yellow, cream and lilac seem to be absolute favourites of hers possibly because they flatter her peaches and cream complexion beautifully. The embroideries are as varied as the styles but whether it’s chikankari or diamantes, they’re always understated. Alia’s personal style statements have always been about ‘less is more’ and that certainly carries forward into her ethnic wear choices.

Flared lehengas are certainly a signature look for the petite lass because they balance out the proportions of her tiny frame by giving the illusion of height and curves. Every lehenga worn by Alia comes with an uber stylish and deliciously sensuous blouse that’s a Manish Malhotra signature. Even at the very start of his career it was his inventive and experimental blouses that made Manish Malhotra a household name. Alia has picked his creations for friends’ weddings, promotional events, society bashes and Diwali parties, proving that she loves his work even for her personal wardrobe.

Alia is seldom seen in saris but when she does choose to drape herself in the six yards of fabric, it’s very often than not a Manish Malhotra. His creative genius is on display with saris too, as he spins his magic with both traditional and contemporary versions with effortless ease. Alia has been photographed in a slinky net and sequined number, an elegant floral printed version with a contrasting strappy blouse as well as a decidedly more ethnic silk and brocade half and half sari. Clearly paying homage to Manish Malhotra’s design range that has something for every event and every taste spectrum.
