When one thinks of this actress they usually imagine her in a western attire but there have been numerous occasions where this lady has impressed many by appearing at events in beautiful sarees. The surprising thing is that she wasn’t always able to get it right but with a bit of help in the right direction and some experimentation she learnt what worked and what didn’t.
On the 16th July Katrina Kaif celebrates her 35th birthday and to mark this occasion, BizAsiaLive.com will take a look at some of Kaif’s traditional looks from her films.
‘Singh Is Kinng’ (2008)
Who can forget Kaif in the song ‘Teri ore’ as she looked absolutely stunning in a black net sari. That was perhaps the first time the audience got to see her on screen in a sari properly and boy did she get it right. Her sari had a bright pink border along the edges which added a little colour to her outfit. Her make up was kept simple with dark kohl in her eyes and minimal jewellery. With her wavy locks she managed to complete the look showing the audiences that she too can wear a sari and look amazing.
‘Mere Brother Ki Dulhan’ (2011)
There is a small segment in the song ‘Ishk risk’ where Kaif can be seen dressed in a Mughal look along with her co star Imran Khan. Although it was only for a couple of minutes Kaif in an Anarkali dress and churidar trousers, looked majestic. Her dress was covered in gold work and she wore a hat which kept her dupatta in place. The dupatta as well as having embellishments had a thick gold border around the edges to match her dress. She tied her hair into a plait and wore some gold jewellery to match her outfit. We hope to see her in a look like this again as it suited her very well.
This film saw Kaif’s character experience many situations in her life. She goes from being a happy go lucky girl to a woman who has many responsibilities on her shoulders. In the first portion of the film she is seen wearing lots of bright coloured clothes mostly consisting of churidar, kameez suits. Her hair would be left down and in terms of adorning herself she would wear a small red bindi with minimal jewellery. It was a casual way of dressing in a desi attire but it worked.
In the second half of the film when her character enters the world of politics her wardrobe changes. She goes from wearing bright, patterned clothing to dull and plain. She was seen wearing cotton sarees with colours like maroon, blood orange and dark green. The sarees were simple but they evoked a seriousness or one could say they gave Kaif an official look. She kept her hair tied back into a neat bun or at times in a pony tail. Looking at her in this avatar she really did look like a politician.
‘Tees Maar Khan’ (2010)
Kaif is seen making an appearance in the song ‘Wallah’ wearing a sparkling orange, coloured sharara suit. On her head is a long net dupatta that has a silver border which most likely will have had a lot of intricate work done on it. She was bedecked in beautiful silver jewellery, big, chunky jhumke with a matching silver tika and bangles. Kaif was presented like never before but the outcome was positive and she looked amazing.
Not only in this song but she was seen wearing various outfits from different coloured lenghas, to sarees throughout the film to suit her character of a struggling actress.
‘Baar Baar Dekho’ (2016)
The film had Kaif play the role of a bride so she was seen in various wedding outfits. One such outfit was a floral lengha that she is seen wearing at an event. The pastel colours gave it a summery touch and her simple make up was spot on.
However one has to admit that Kaif never looked hotter in a sari than when she appeared in the song ‘Kala chashma’. At the beginning of the song she is seen in a traditional red and gold lengha. Her head is covered with a dupatta and her hair is tied back. Yet when the beat kicks in she transforms into a red and gold sari, her hair is let loose and she appears as a modern bride.
What finished off the look was the blue bindi she wore and of course her black shades.
The team at BizAsiaLive.com wishes Katrina Kaif a very happy birthday.
