If silver screen melodramas, fashion glossies, and runway shows were serving you some serious fashion inspiration then maybe your mood board needs an update. The real fashion is happening on television. Courtesy our loved femme fatales of television, who tame some of the most dramatic looks in their day to day life on small screen, we get to witness high octane glamour. Though their ever impeccable exaggerated eye makeup, unconventional lip shade choices and decadent outfits often evoke a sense of wonder coupled with repulsion, we will have to admit, keeping away from this pomp and show is not easy. 

Taking cues from Karan Johar’s larger than life dance sequences television has also repetitively encashed on the wedding paraphernalia.  Drama with cheesy antics punctuated with heavy bridal lehengas and jewellery make for a perfect television wedding drama. Leading the pack are our very own television actresses who do not shy away from embracing the ‘desi girl’ in them.  Be it the recent big screen entrant Mouni Roy who has laid a trail of fans owing to her seductive portrayal of ‘Naagin’ or leggy Karishma Tanna, the leading of ladies of television have decked up as a bride time and again. The most recent one to take it to her Instagram is ‘Naagin 3’ star Anita Hassanandani who looped in the reds and gold to whip up a traditional bridal look.

Here are some of your favourite television actresses who gave us some major bridal fashion goals.

Be it mastering tricky winter layering skills, rocking a heavily sequined number or embracing her inner ‘desi girl’, ‘Naagin 3’ star, Anita,  knows how fun with fashion. Recently she took to Instagram, all decked up as an Indian bride, wearing a net dupatta, a gold elbow length blouse, a rich red lehenga complimented with traditional Indian bridal jewellery.  For those of you who want to go light, maybe this look is not for you. But for those who don’t believe in holding it back, take cues from Anita.

Karishma Tanna Schools On How To Loop In A Non-Bridal Hue

Though the leggy television star appears to be a denim and t-shirt kind of a gal but when it comes to slipping in something ethnic, Karishma knows how to put up a show. Recently she was seen in this canary yellow Sailesh Singhania lehenga choli paired with traditional Rajasthan inspired jewellery pieces. In case you think red, maroons and oranges are done to death, maybe yellow can be your preferred shade. Make some notes.

Surveen’s effortlessness in donning a variety of silhouettes make her a star to watch out for.  From picking up a Raw Mango power suit made in traditional handloom or flaunting a double slit gown on the red carpet, Surveen’s been turning heads lately. A few weeks back she was seen donning a cream lehenga with a green dupatta, she complimented her look with a clean bun and chandbalis from Anmol Jewellers.  Just in case you want to make a statement without being loud, this palate is for you.

In case you want to take in some beauty inspiration for all things bridal, Sana’s instagram serves some up do-able ideas. A few months back she was seen looking pretty in pink and to contrast, she threw on coloured stone jewels. Though many might opine that the palate is a little OTT, but if you can carry it then why think twice. And Sana is all about bright hues. We say it’s a winning look for a summer mehendi.

Among a number of high profile star-y weddings last year, small screen actress Aashka Garodia got hitched to Brent Goble and we are still following her bridal fashion trail. Not only did she manage to look impeccable at her wedding ceremony but her sangeet look also registered a strong presence among those reds and pinks. It was a blue ensemble by Archana Kochhar complimented by some intricate jewels from Orra. So, the lesson learned is, do not go the traditional route when picking up colours for your sangeet or mehendi.

‘Bepannah’ star, Jennifer is known for her sartorial choices on the red carpet. A few months back she stirred up the internet with her thigh-high slit gown and instantly made her way among the best dressed in the showbiz. While she was a part the hit series ‘Beyhadh’ she took to instagram and posted a picture wearing an earthy toned bridal ensemble complimented with intricate jewellery pieces, enough to shame royalty. Now, your cue is, you can go easy with your bridal ensemble and amp up your look with heavy jewellery.
