While her acting in Lootera gets all the praise, and rightly so! Sonakshi’s effortless styling in the movie needs a humble mention too.
Silks with Chinese collared blouses; georgettes & chiffons with three-quarter sleeved silk-brocade blouses; plain red bindi, she makes them all work and how! Apart from all this, what really caught CB’s eye were the gorgeous “half-sets” she wears throughout the first half of the movie (at least ten of them!). For the uninitiated, half sets are a matched combination of ear-rings (jhumkis/ chaand baalis/ studs/hoops) and neck pieces (pendants/chokers/neck laces). Made in solid yellow gold and pearls the sets are timeless, ethnic and oh so gorgeous! No glimpses of OTT diamonds, rubies or emeralds which is what made them perfect in their understated opulence.
Go on, watch the movie-for the brilliant direction, storytelling and acting by the main cast but do keep your sartorial eye out for the extremely simple yet beautiful clothes and jewelry.
Stay Gorgeous xx
