Deepika Padukone can wear a barely stitched cloth and still rock it with her sexy looks and sharp features. Put her in Manish Malhotra’s wardrobe and we have nothing more to add to that. As the storyline goes, we see that Deepika’s character evolves even in the way she dresses in this very movie. From a girl next door to hottie, the transformation is too much for bare eyes. The pretty blue sari that Manish designed for one song speaks for itself. The signature backless blouse, the simple looks and the blue saree are all it needs to make Deepika look extra special in the song.

7Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania


Being Manish’s lucky muse, Alia Bhatt’s look in this movie has been just top notch. The Lehenga for the song – D Se Dance is quite a show stealer in the movie. We sure couldn’t take our eyes off her. Isn’t it?

All said and done, talent comes with a huge hard work. Right from his first movie till now, the designer legend has followed his heart and made sure he has dressed everyone in the most trend-ethnic-sassy way. He has his own style of doing it and that is why he owns the number one spot always in the Bollywood industry. We are sure he is going to rock the fashion world more! Here’s to more success Manish!
