Best Bollywood Style – Fashion Inspired By Bipasha Basu, Katrina Kaif + Malaika Arora

If there’s one thing Bollywood is known for, it’s vibrant, spirited opulence, so it’s no surprise that Bollywood actresses have a penchant for festive designer fashion when they hit the Red Carpet. If your Indian wardrobe could use a little glamour, let Luxemi help you get the Bollywood look!

Bipasha Basu has been a Bollywood Red Carpet mainstay since her 2001 Filmfare Award-winning role in Ajnabee, so we’ve had a lot of chances to see this celeb’s sensual style evolve. One of our favorite Bipasha looks is definitely this sunny Yashraj saree she wore on the Super Star Awards Red Carpet. With shiny foil and pearl embellishments and a chic contrast border, Luxemi’s Yellow Georgette Saree with Brocade and Pearl Border bears a striking resemblance to this Bipasha Red Carpet look!

Another major Bollywood style trendsetter is Katrina Kaif, who we recently spotted wearing this bold pink saree with a Gladiator-inspired gota border. You can get the same strong look by rocking Luxemi’s Navy and Pink Georgette Border Saree, which features a wide, heavily embellished gota border and gorgeous fabric that shifts from red to fuchsia to navy blue.

Actress and dancer Malaika Arora always brings a unique fashion style to Bollywood events, but we love her most when she takes a twist on the traditional. Malaika made major fashion waves when she wore this purple, red and white Laila Motwane creation. (Full disclosure: Laila Motwane is one of our absolute favorite lehenga designers!) You’ll make the same ethnic impact as Malaika Arora when you wear Luxemi’s Scarlet and Purple Lehenga with Gota Work by Laila Motwane. This designer lehenga has it all: intricate gota work, striking contrast borders, and a chic color pairing only Laila Motwane could dream up.

Whether you’re hitting the Red Carpet or just want to infuse some excitement into your wardrobe, Luxemi has the perfect look for you. Check out our collection for more sarees, lehengas and salwars that will reinvigorate you and your wardrobe!

A Bollywood Life – Get The Look From Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam

It’s hard to believe that it’s been more than a decade since the classic Bollywood musical Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam (Straight From The Heart) hit the big screen, especially considering how much it still influences Indian film and fashion today! Here’s how to capture the extravagant, opulent spirit of Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam in your daily life.

Famous Bollywood romance movies romantic comedy

For those of you who haven’t seen this Bollywood blockbuster, here’s the 1-minute synopsis: When Sammer Rafilini (played by Salman Khan) travels from Italy to India to receive music and singing lessons from classical musician Pundit Darbar (played by Vikram Gokhale), he ends up falling in love with Pundit’s daughter, Nandini (played by one of our favorite actresses, Aishwarya Rai). The catch? Nandini is already arranged to marry a guy named Vanraj (played by Ajay Devgan). Nandini’s father is furious that his student and his daughter have fallen in love, and banishes Sammer from the house. Sammer eventually goes back to Italy, and Nandini marries Vanraj, despite her feelings for Sammer. When Vanraj learns that his wife is still in love with Sammer, he does something unexpected: He takes Nandini to Italy to reunite the two lovers. But through all the tribulation of trying to locate Sammer together in Italy, Nandini and Vanraj grow closer, and Nandini eventually realizes that Vanraj is her true love.

Even as the plot shifts between India and Italy, director Sanjay Leela Bhansali never lets the movie lose its unmistakable grandiose Bollywood feel. Between lavish, traditional dance numbers and extravagant gilded sets, Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’s visual look evokes just as much emotion and classic Indian spirit as its plotline.

Want to weave a little Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam influence into your life? Luxemi can help.
