Inspired by the Stars
An old saying goes like this: “You can take the soldier out of the country, but never the country out of the soldier. The same idiom comes to mind when we talk about celebs and fashion. You can always take fashion away from a celebrity but never take a celeb away from fashion. Celebrities and fashion go hand-in-hand. Whether it is a party, a fashion event or an awards night, celebs always step out dressed in the latest trends—be it their gowns or jewellery.
The fashion choices of celebs are keenly followed by fashion critics, the press and the fans. These choices are debated and discussed across all social media platforms. The latest fashion-spotting was Aishwarya Rai’s purple lipstick at the recently concluded Cannes Awards. While some people lauded the Bollywood star for her bold choice, most of the media and general public were unforgiving of her “purple pout”. But rest of Aishwarya’s Cannes fashion journey was dazzling. She rocked the Red Carpet in Elle Saab, Naeem Khan and Ali Younes Couture gown. Coming to jewellery, the actress opted for the minimum/no jewellery look for most of her red carpet appearances. She did, however, showcase rose gold jewellery from Boucheron and a heavy neck piece by Deepa Gurnani for two media events.
Aishwarya’s co-brand ambassador at Cannes, Sonam Kapoor, is a favourite with the fashion police and media alike as she has donned many interesting looks at the French Riveira over the years. This year, she stuck to Ralph & Russo throughout with some intricate jewellery choices. She accessorized her Ralph & Russo ensembles with Bvlgari stud-rock earrings, feather blooms diamond neck piece, stud earrings, ear trinkets and an embroidered choker. Her other jewellery outings included a “stand out” black collar necklace and Chopard diamond neck piece.
Closer home, actress Kangana Ranaut made a bold style statement at this year’s National awards ceremony. Just like last year, she ditched the traditional saree and anarkalis to go “all Western” at the function. Her icy-hued Georges Chakra off-shoulder dress was a sight for sore eyes.
All the celebrity fashion choices, be it gowns or jewellery, do leave an impression on their fans. So if any of the jewellery worn by your favourite celebrities has caught your fancy, do drop in at your nearest Jos Alukkas store and get them made to suit your taste and budget. Stay stylish, stay happy!
