With every season comes a new trend and with every new trend comes great responsibility! Bringing creations from the past with a tinge of freshness into the zone is the fashion industry’s way of making sure it doesn’t stale. Last year was all about unveiling velvet from eveningwear and turning it into a cool daywear material. This season, satin is being ushered. Stylists and bloggers have inspired us to dress in satin in the most minimalistic ways either by just adding it to white tees to glossy track pants to even the most voguish ways by glamming satin with gold chains and high slits.
Satin slip dresses have been quite the rage of 2018 and continue being the same in 2020 as well. Celebrities too have been under this satin umbrella. We’ve spotted them multiple times, pairing their outfits in quirky ways (blazers, sarees, gowns…you name it!) and with different accessories all the time. While some of these outfits didn’t turn out to be so pleasing and did not make it to our list, some were quite a hit and we bet you would want to have a look at how celebrities made satin the new black!
Malaika Arora swears by her fitness regime and diva looks. This year Arora hosted LIVA Miss Diva’s grand finale where she took satin wear to a whole another level. The yellow gown by Georges Chakra was a high thigh slit gown opened to many layers giving it a flowy day look. The one-shouldered ruffled top made it look more than just a regular gown. The look was teamed with golden stilettos and loose curls (styled by Tanya Ghavri) and became the highlight of the event. But let’s be honest, when is Malaika Arora not the highlight of the event!
Janhvi Kapoor is a living fashion look-book without trying too hard. Her effortless sartorial picks are always in talk. In February she was seen looking like an absolute go-to girl wearing a blue, one-shoulder Kayla dress as she drove all the blues away from the event. The asymmetrical, silk-satin outfit was from Atelier ExC’s collection. Stylists Mohit Rai and Miloni Shah gave the ensemble an even more ruffle look by adding gold-lock jewels and blush heels to it.
In 2019, Kirti Kharbanda went for the love of orange as she wore a back-cut slip dress from Deme Love’s satin collection. She looked jaw-drop gorgeous with her straight flowing hair complimenting the elegant look she pulled off for the promotions of Pagalpanti. The fitted bodice highlighted her frame and brought a great balance between cheeky and classy by stylist Anisha Jain.
Kareena Kapoor Khan
Kareena Kapoor Khan looked ravishing in Monisha Jaising’s couture (kaftan, couture, put Kapoor Khan in anything and she’ll look as ravishing). The Angrezi Medium actress wore a black-strapped moonlight blue dress as she launched the then-latest collection for Lakme Absolute in 2018 when satin slits had just dropped back in the house. The look was put together by Tanya Ghavri. Kapoor Khan opted for smooth-smokey eyes, nude heels, and hair loosely tied back giving the ensemble an ultra-modern look.
Who said you couldn’t do satin the saree way? Dia Mirza tells us how in a classic black saree look for an event of the first edition of the Humanitarian & Tolerance Awards in Dubai. Till now we saw gowns and slip satin dresses and now that Mirza went for a traditional saree, she has won some extra stars. It was a simple black saree from Manish Malhotra’s collection. The border of the saree had gold motifs and the jet black satin drape was wrapped around in a saree that went appropriately with the evening. Her makeup was natural and not at all cakey and jewelry by Manish Malhotra was an X-Factor to the entire ensemble. Styled by Theia Tekchandaney, this look is an absolute winner!
