Top 5 Bollywood Movies for Fashion Inspiration

It is often said that movies reflects life and vice-versa. Perhaps that is why you can watch some movies again and again only to seek inspiration for your wardrobe. Following are five such recent Hindi movies. I haven’t seen a lot of old ones so I really can’t comment on them but these recent few are hard to miss.

1. High end fashion- Aisha

aisha movie
Yes I know the movie is horrible. It’s irritating how the movie butchers the beauty of Jane Austen’s best female character, Emma. The only genuine counsel “Aisha” is able to impart to her friends and the viewers is that of high end fashion. The movie is full of inspiration if vintage high end is your style. I love her clothes (styled by Pernia Qureshi), I love her hair and makeup, I love her “Knightley” and I can even tolerate the product placements by L’oreal but I hate the movie.

2. Indian chic- Jab We Met

jab we met movie
Kareena plays Geet in Jab We Met and her style is resembles a typical college student in Delhi/Punjab (Mumbai not so much!). She looks fab in her fulkari duppattas, tshirts and patialas, red nail paint and bunch of silver bangles. The look is girly but effortless and very wearable.

3. Sexy traditional Indian- Band Baaja Baaraat

band baaja baaraat movie
Shruti Kakkar, played by Anushka Sharma in Band Baaja Baarat is a fresh graduate student who starts her business of wedding planning after college. While in college she is spotted in tshirts and short kurtis, she soon switches to subtle yet typically ‘West Delhi-ish, Punjabi’ suits. Each and every suit in her wardrobe is worth drooling, be it the green silk suit or the electric blue suit in the song ‘lut gaya’ or the gorgeous saree in the last scene.

4. Sexy chic- Kambakht Ishq

kambakkht ishq movie
Kareena Kapoor’s look in Kambakht Ishq is aid to be inspired from the character of Carrie Bradshaw in Sex in the City. She plays a supermodel in the film and is spotted wearing CK, Dior and other designer labels. The look is definitely high end yet modern and wearable.

5. Traditional Indian- Devdas

devdas movie
Makers of Devdas went all out for the costumes of the film. Aishwarya rai has never looked more beautiful than her character in this film. The style is elaborate traditional Bengali. The jewellery and other accessories are given as much importance as the garments. The detailing of each and every look is hard to miss. You can happily mute the movie and just enjoy it visually.

These were the top five in my head. Which film inspires you? Drop in a comment below and share with us!
