Bollywood Fashion: Kangana Ranaut does a desi curl in Tanu Weds Manu

Tanu of Tanu Weds Manu is a vodka-guzzling, invective-spewing, small-town girl who likes to have people dance to her tunes. And from the promos, she also seems to love dancing, gossiping and has a penchant for drama.

Even as Tanu (Kanagana Ranaut) has totally bewitched her suitor Manu (R Madhavan), we’re admiring her desi bold look.

Speaking Chic breaks down Kangana Ranaut’s Tanu look:


Kangana Ranaut is mostly dressed in kurta-salwars in Tanu Weds Manu, wearing the small-town uniform to the T. While most young girls across India seem to have adopted the jeans-tee staple, we’re sure Tanu’s wardrobe is partly dictated by her circumstances—ladkewale and all that. 😉

But Tanu is bold enough to sport low-backed kurtas and blouses (with net saris), perhaps indicating her boldness?

FYI, the movie’s costume designer is Namratha Jani, who also did the forgettable Dil Kabaddi.

If there’s one thing Tanu loves, it’s her earrings. Kangana is sporting lovely Indian earrings, from hoops to jhumkas to jadau. Lots of bangles too! (We find this a bit surprising since the current trends favour a few chunky kadas.)

Kangana Ranaut has often spoken about her extremely curly (and troublesome) hair in interviews, but this is one movie where she’s making the most of them. And her crazy hair contributes greatly to her bold personality. Besides playing with her curls, Kangana has also played with texture by crimping her hair.


Smokey eyes go subtle! Kangana’s smokey eyes have been skillfully done—the smudged eyeliner/ kaajal blends seamlessly with the dark eyeshadow. In some scenes, you see Kangana in eyeshadows of colours like pink and light blue. Lips are glossy with a hint of colour.

We loved Tanu, partly because we see a bit of her in us. Or maybe it’s the other way around. What do you think?
