Turning heads as they walk down the red carpet is the forte of Bollywood’s leading ladies. They leave us spellbound and yearning to know the secret behind their looks. Here’s your guide to your own red-carpet look.
1. Beauty basics 101.
If you’ve got the basics covered, it’s half the battle won. Build on your basics to complete your bombshell look. From statement jewellery to coral lipstick, the key is to figure out what matches you best.
Like Kareena Kapoor, the red carpet is all yours when you marry simplicity with elegance.
2. The fit must be a hit.
Find the right outfit for your body type and skin tone, and most importantly find the right fit. An ill-fitting dress is a recipe for disaster. Choose one that accentuates your best features.
Also, trying an outfit a week before the occasion gives you time to do any quick fixes, if needed.

3. Never underestimate subtlety.
Whether it’s the make-up, the hair-do, keep it subtle and classy and in sync with your outfit. Overdoing anything will only mess up the whole look. With the deftest finishing touches, you must find the balance in your look.

4. Bold is Beautiful
While you manoeuvre through the essentials, you can’t forget your distinct style. There is no space for copycats in the limelight.
Get ready to experiment. Play with patterns and textures but as it is with all things fashion, even the bold must be balanced.
