Off late, Punit Balana has become the go-to designer for our B-town girls. Alia Bhatt, Janhvi Kapoor, Rasika Dugal, Rakul Singh, Aditi Rao Hydari – you name them and they’re wearing the Jaipur based designer. And why should they not? New kid on the block (well, it’s been a while to that, but still) Tara Sutaria has not only been a fresh face in the industry but quite a trendsetter. The actress made her debut in Punit Malhotra’s Student of the Year 2 alongside Tiger Shroff and Ananya Pandey and was later seen in Marjaavaan opposite Sidharth Malhotra. If there is one thing this 24-year-old has taught us, it is to be poised and elegant wherever she goes! While her on-screen debut might have not raised the bars, she sure raised the temperature with her sartorial statement(s). Right from Armaan Jain’s wedding to walking at the Lakme Fashion Week, she has painted the town red one look after the other and we can’t get enough of her diva moments!
The Marjaavaan actress has left no stone unturned to put her ethnic foot forward. But it doesn’t always happen on your own to look this apt. And you can’t always be lucky to have made the right choice of aesthetics in your look for every event. Trust us, it’s a struggle to find the right designer, no lesser than finding a shoe that fits! Fortunately for Sutaria, she found designer Punit Balana pleasing her poised personality. Balana has taken the good space and satisfied our ethnic quench with his exclusive block prints, colors, organic dyes, and most importantly the eco-friendly techniques he uses for creating a piece. Honestly, what else could we ask for!
If you too are looking for the right wedding inspiration, we encourage you to check Tara Sutaria in Punit Balana, so you swish the upcoming wedding season with shimmer, mirror, and glamour, and all of this in ethical designs! Below, we list three of our favourite collaborations of the actor and designer and where you can wear these outfits…
The Royal Bagh – at your BFF’s wedding
B-town’s fresh sensation stole the show at Lakme Fashion Week in an enviable peach Lehenga as she walked for Punit Balana on the fifth day of the week. The contrast of nude tones and heavy embroidery on the lehenga-choli set came with detail of bootis on the hem. Celebrity stylist Tanya Ghavri’s work in creating the look was as subtle as needed by teaming gold earrings with drops of pearl and emerald from Shree Jewellers. Sutaria opted for soft-brushed nude eyes and glossy lips with light wavy hair flowing to the back. If you are attending your BFF’s wedding, this pick can work just perfectly for a show-stopping moment. And if you see Sutaria’s walk on the ramp, you’ll know how easy the lehenga is!
Rabari – at an engagement party
Sutaria went for all black from the designer’s Rabari collection during the promotions of Marjaavaan. The sharara set had intricate gold embroidery all over. This piece of ethnic wear itself has a deeper meaning to it just like the collection revolved around the origin, with dons of black, blue, mustard and dried henna. Stylist Ami Patel showed much appreciation to the emotions with her work as she teams it with an amla colored bindi and a pair of chunky jhumkas from Hazoorilal Legacy Jewellers. Her hair was loosely curled out and the glam makeup gave a lift to the ensemble. If you want to give a break to the nudes in your series of outfits this is the right choice to make.
Rabari – at your own mehendi
Tara Sutaria stunned in a breed of yellow lehnga from Rabari by Punit Balana as she appeared at the launch of the designer’s first flagship store in Mumbai and made quite a sight. The mirror worked lehenga-choli set came with a sheer mustard-yellow dupatta. Once again styled by Tanya Ghavri, the attire was layered with a polki choker from Jewel Saga. The rest of the look was left minimalistic and soothing to our eyes, for all the credit it received to the delicate and flattering work making the outfit spring-ready to crash at your best friend’s wedding, or even your own mehendi!
