In the four years since she stepped into the industry, Janhvi Kapoor has never been able to resist the siren call of a scarlet-hued number—and once you get a look at her style files, you won’t be able to either. From red carpet-ready gowns to cocktail saris that will make heads turn your way on the dancefloor, there are endless ways to wear this colour in Kapoor’s rulebook and none of them are subtle.
Ahead, we take a look at all the times the Good Luck Jerry star extended her vote of approval to head-to-toe red:
As A High-Shine Gown With Risqué Cutouts
Looking to ensure all eyes on you? Make your grand entrance in a metallic red gown like hers, and go the extra mile by opting for an unconventional silhouette and interesting cutouts to stand out from the crowd.
As A Backless Gown With Coordinated Beauty Choices
Backless gowns are a dime a dozen in this red carpet savant’s wardrobe, but what made Kapoor’s Alexandre Vauthier number and coordinated knee-high boots stand out is her choice of finishing touches: a glossy wash of cherry red colour on her lips and a matching manicure on her nails.
As An All-Red Sari And Embellished Blouse
When in doubt, go for red. The colour has made its way into her Indianwear wardrobe with head-turning drapes, like her all-red sari from Manish Malhotra paired with an embellished blouse in a coordinated hue for maximum impact.
As A Shimmery Sangeet-Ready Lehenga
Who said red is only for brides? Lean into the scene-stealing impact of a head-to-toe sequinned lehenga by choosing one doused in the head-turning hues of flaming red. Kapoor dialled up the impact of hers by teaming it with a classic winged eye and a touch of shimmer on the lids.
As A Mirrorwork Ballgown
Channel your inner dancing girl emoji with a classic ballgown; Kapoor already knows that there’s no going wrong with this timeless silhouette. With her hair slicked back into a bun and a raincheck on all jewellery, she allowed the focus to stay on the mosaic mirrorwork bodice of her ruby Atelier Zuhra gown.
