Manish Malhotra Turns 50!

Manish Malhotra Turns 50!

Celebrating the iconic celeb-designer’s 50th birthday

If there is one man who is a quintessential Sagittarian - think idealistic, curious, and with a strong sense of style - Manish Malhotra  it is! The lasting impact of Manish Malhotra’s vision is stamped all over Indian cinema and fashion alike. No other designer has ever been able to seamlessly cross over the two and emerge a champion. His contribution to costume design has given us many iconic cinematic moments that will go down in history. As the legendary designer hits his milestone birthday on December 5, he’s already on a super secret project with Katrina Kaif in Maldives, and we hear that his BFF Karan Johar has a birthday bash planned that is set to be even more star studded than Malhotra’s fashion week FROWs. To commemorate his big 5-0, we look back (with a tear of nostalgia dripping down one cheek) at some of the greatest fashion moments in Indian movies that changed the face of pop culture. 

Urmila Matonkar in Rangeela
The 1995 movie was a turning point for both the actress and Manish, inspiring Indian girls to not be scared of hot pants and knotted tops.
Kajol in DDLJ
One of the highlights of the movie that redefined Indian cinema was Kajol’s parrot green lehenga that set the trend of wedding outfits in the ‘90s.
Kareena Kapoor Khan in K3G
That peach sharara will forever be the uniform for ‘karwa chauths’ in India.
Katrina Kaif in Baar Baar Dekho
In a forgettable movie, Katrina’s Kaala chashma saree will remain immortal!

Anushka Sharma in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil
The famous 17 kilo lehenga is a piece of art in itself, marking the most crucial moment of the hit movie of the year! Anushka gave us serious wedding fashion goals!
