Manish Malhotra’s envy-inducing saris and lehengas have been Kiara Advani’s sworn go-tos. The Kabir Singh actor’s personal style has found expression in a roster of Indian wear looks by the couturier that stand out from the crowd. In 2018, she was spotted in several show-stopping pieces by the designer. Isha Ambani’s wedding had her opting for a blush lehenga that came with a sleeveless blouse with an attached dupatta, whereas she relied on an orange sari by the designer for another wedding in the same year. In December, for Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas’ wedding reception in Mumbai, the actor gave a Manish Malhotra lehenga sari her stamp of approval.

Did you notice Kiara Advani’s striking blouse?
As expected, the soiree was attended by a host of celebrities including Sara Ali Khan, Anushka Sharma, Katrina Kaif, Salman Khan, Janhvi Kapoor, and Mira Rajput Kapoor and Shahid Kapoor, among others. Kiara Advani chose a silvery-grey lehenga sari for the occasion. Her sari + lehenga hybrid came with a pre-stitched skirt and an attached draped dupatta that created the illusion of the six-yard staple. The skirt, bereft of embellishment, was simply enhanced with vertical lines of sequins and crystal work at the hem. But it’s not the accent on the ensemble that got everyone talking; it was Advani’s not-so-basic blouse. The strappy top came completely doused in embellishment, arranged in a way that made it look like it was dripping in crystals.
Kiara Advani went minimal with her jewels
Allowing her silver-grey lehenga sari to take centre stage, Kiara Advani subscribed to a subtle aesthetic for her choice of accessories. She rounded off her Manish Malhotra ensemble with just a pair of diamond and ruby encrusted earrings by Renu Oberoi. The star preferred to go minimal with her jewels, but that did not stop her from experimenting with her beauty look. Her makeup, complete with smoky eyes, highlighted cheeks and bold red lips, really hit the ball out of the park. She wore her hair in soft old-Hollywood curls.
