Yellow might not be easy. But stars — like Kangana Ranaut in Dior and Neha Dhupia in a Shantanu-Nikhil floor-sweeper — are flocking to the hue. And even more importantly, are getting it right.

Unsurprisingly then, at a party thrown to celebrate the success of her film Raazi in Mumbai on Wednesday, trend-setting actor Alia Bhatt arrived as a vision in yellow. Wearing a summery chikankari anarkali we totally need to get our hands on, Alia looked like a bright ray of sunshine on a humid May night.

Alia’s Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla design was embroidered with ivory flowers. Accessorised with a pair of silver jhumkas and metallic flats, Alia’s sunny outfit made her stand out from the crowd in the best way possible. She let her hair down and paired the natural-looking curls with soft and feminine make-up.

At the height of summer, this gorgeous Alia Bhatt look is just what we needed when it comes to a little extra inspiration when we get dressed in Indian ethnic wear.

Of course, it’s not the first time Alia has given us major wardrobe envy with an outfit in the muted and moody hue. The actor — who can turn up the bohemian vibes one day and show up in a daring, sexy, sophisticated blazer dress the next — is often seen rocking yellow.
