Ever since Arora made her silver screen debut while dancing atop a moving train with Shah Rukh Khan in Dil Se, she has been the numero uno in Bollywood when it comes to the contentious item numbers in movies. She proved this recently as she made an appearance in Ayushmann Khurrana’s An Action Hero to dance to a remixed version of ‘Aap Jaisa Koi’.
While she experiments with textures and prints for her outfits, she has a particular affinity towards metallics, be it head-to-toe shine or accents in her ensembles.
Arora regularly gives her followers a masterclass in wearing metallics and how to shine like a true star. Like how she looked like a gilded goddess in her Naeem Khan gown which she paired with a gold and emerald choker and her hair cascading down her back in soft waves.
Once in a while, she skips the slinky gowns and saris in favour of co-ord sets, like the oversized metallic Ralph and Russo suit she wore for an award ceremony recently.
Now that we’re inching towards the end of this year, we’re already prepping for year-end bashes and metallics are always a good bet. We’ve selected some of our favourite metallic looks from Arora’s wardrobe to give you inspiration for your own shiny, disco ball moment.
