Karisma Kapoor knows how to add a modern twist to a classic lehenga | vogue india

Karisma Kapoor’s love for white is no secret. From pre-draped sarees and traditional weaves to anarkalis and lehengas, she has been seen cutting an elegant figure on different social and professional occasions. Some of her most memorable all-white looks are by designer and longtime friend Manish Malhotra. These include the white open-back anarkali worn at the wedding of actor and cousin Armaan Jain and the white saree with gold sequin trim for Sonam Kapoor Ahuja’s reception, among other outfits. More recently, the 47-year-old star wore another white Malhotra creation. This time around a white chikankari lehenga. Ahead, we give you a glimpse of her classic outfit with contemporary details, and also where you can buy a similar lehenga to build your Indian clothing collection.

Karisma Kapoor’s chikankari lehenga came with a strappy blouse

Playing Manish Malhotra’s muse, Karisma Kapoor can be seen in a stunning white lehenga from her Mijwan line. The look, while steeped in traditional craftsmanship, also carried the designer’s signature sparkle and glamour. From the voluminous skirt and blouse, the entire lehenga showcases the intricate tone on tone chikankari to work. Adding a touch of modernity was the sexy blouse with thin gold straps and the dupatta that featured white feather detailing on the edges, making an otherwise traditional chikankari lehenga perfect for a night out like a sangeet or a cocktail party.

Karisma Kapoor added color to her white look with makeup

Karisma Kapoor kept her bold beauty with a fresh base, kohl eyes, elongated lashes, well-defined eyebrows and a red pout. Her hair too was styled in side curls, giving an old Hollywood vibe. If you love drama but want to follow a classic trend, then this makeup is for you. Although she ditched the jewelry when posing for the camera, we suggest opting for diamond chandelier earrings or pearl pieces to accessorize.
