When Salman Khan’s sister Arpita got married recently, a host of Bollywood actors attended the Mumbai reception, some looking great and stylish, others not so much. But each of them had a style tip to share, and here’s what they were.
Red is a great Indian festive colour. Sonakshi toned down the brightness with a light lip colour and minimal jewellery (the bare neck also showed off her recently-acquired sexy collarbones!).
A well-draped sari can easily cover up post-baby bulge. Brighten up an all-gold look with coloured gem stone jewellery.
A sharara is perfectly-acceptable wedding attire and a shaded one adds to the charm. While Dia Mirza chose a pastel palette, the embellishments and jewellery ensured she didn’t look washed out.
With a dramatic silhouette, you don’t need too much embellishment. A bold border and accessories should do the trick.

She’s sexy, she’s fashion forward, she’s from the bridal party and she’s not afraid to make a statement with a dhoti-sari and mesh blouse.
An off-white anarkali can be as regal as any bright colour, especially with a high collar. Give it a royal touch with the right shoes, and go easy on the accessories. BTW, the statement watch is a nice touch!
Yes, it is okay to wear black to a reception, and a bindi can brighten up your look instantly.
And a useful tip on what NOT to wear: Zarine Khan
Avoid tacky embellishments, please. Some designers are trying to use mirror work in wedding fashion, but it DOES NOT WORK! Also, you may want fuller lips but don’t go overboard with your lip liner and look like a clown.
