If you’ve seen the Band Baaja Baaraat promos, you’ve seen Anushka Sharma as the Dilli kudi. As an ordinary Delhi girl, Anushka Sharma’s look is neither glam nor fab, but very girl-next-door.
Wearing mostly cotton kurtis, kurtas, tees and shirts with straight and skinny jeans, Anushka Sharma is comfortable playing a goal-oriented, organised and smart young woman. But costume designer Niharika Khan has given Anushka’s Band Baaja Baarat plain-Jane wardrobe a stylish twist with a plethora of scarves and dupattas. These complement Anushka Sharma’s clothes and define her character’s (Shruti) style statement.
What we’ve spotted already are plain crushed dupattas with kurtis, and printed stoles with tshirts and shirts. In one scene, Anushka has casually draped a shawl over a green kurti and jeans.
Niharika Khan has carefully contrasted colours and clashed colours, and selected prints that are easy to carry off and what a typical Delhi girl would opt for. She’s ensured that Shruti’s clothes are relatable, and, more importantly, accessible to every young woman across the country.
Of course, there’s no ground-breaking fashion to be seen in Band Baaja Baaraat (at least in the promos), especially since Shruti wouldn’t be the type to experiment with fashion. But hey, we wouldn’t be surprised to see girls flaunting their scarves over the next few weeks. I’d be one of them. 🙂
PS: Also check out Anushka Sharma’s patiala salwar in a song from Band Baaja Baaraat. These have been around on-screen and off-screen for a while now, and seem to rise and decline in popularity every couple months.
