Fashion face-off: Kareena Kapoor, Janhvi Kapoor Rock The Pleated Dress
Pleated dresses could be the next big thing. From Kareena Kapoor to Janhvi Kapoor, these Bollywood starlets have rocked the pleated dress and we decode their looks
It was very recently that the most prestigious Elle Awards took place in Mumbai and Bollywood’s leading ladies dressed up to the nines and made their way to grace the red carpet with their presence. From Kareena Kapoor to Anushka Sharma and Janhvi Kapoor, the who’s who of Bollywood was in attendance of the awards ceremony. From pleated dresses to floor-length gowns to long trails and lots of bare skin, the red carpet saw it all. Bollywood’s fashionistas most certainly turned up the style quotient and left us with all sorts of style inspiration.
With the awards ceremony over and done with, we couldn’t help but think back to Janhvi Kapoor’s stunning copper pleated dress. Janhvi Kapoor’s avatar for the awards left heads turning and most certainly left us speechless. Janhvi Kapoor sizzled in the metallic pleated gown by fashion label Maria Lucia Hohan. The Dhadak actress’s pleated gown in a metallic copper colour featured both a thigh-high slit and a plunging neck line. The dress cinched at the starlet’s waist with a thick waist band and also featured a purple tone towards the inside of the dress.
For this look, Janhvi Kapoor opted for extremely voluminous curls which were parted to the side. For her makeup look, Janhvi Kapoor opted for bronze shimmery eyelids and an overall bronzed look. The look was rounded off with an earthy hued lip and a side of sass!
While we loved the look, we could help but notice how similar this dress was to something we’ve seen recently. After much deliberation we came to the conclusion that Kareena Kapoor wore a similar looking dress when she walked the ramp at Lakme Fashion Week earlier this year. The starlet was clad in a teal and purple-toned pleated dress when she walked as the showstopper for Monisha Jaising.
The dress clung to the starlet’s body at the shoulders and featured some criss cross detailing allowing Kareena Kapoor to bear some skin.
Kareena Kapoor looked glamourous as ever for her walk down the ramp with loose beach waves and dark, kohl-rimmed eyes. With an overall bronzed look and rosy cheecks, Kareena Kapoor rounded off her look with a nude pout and a whole load of sass.
On the work front, Kareena Kapoor is gearing up to be seen in Karan Johar’s Good News alongside Akshay Kumar, Diljit Dosanjh and Kiara Advani in pivotal roles. It is set to hit the theatres on December 27, this year. The actress will also be seen in the upcoming film Angrezi Medium alongside Irrfan Khan. The movie is a sequel to the superhit film Hindi Medium. Fans can’t wait to see the starlet on the big screen once again.
Meanwhile, Janhvi Kapoor will be seen essaying the role of IAF pilot Gunjan Saxena in her biopic followed by Dostana 2 alongisde Kartik Aaryan and Karan Johar's magnum opus Takht. She is also in talks for two other big projects that will go on floors next year. But we're now waiting to see the magic Jahnhvi can bring on the web too!
