Style and Kareena Kapoor Khan go hand in hand. The stunning actor makes a statement whenever she steps out - even on the dullest of days- so one can only expect perfection from her on days she decides to glam up. She was spotted donning an Asos bodysuit paired with a Retro Fete skirt, winning the colour-blocking trend in style even before the trend itself became a rage. Styled by the brilliant Lakshmi Lehr, the spurt of neon colours might seem unusual, but the actor pulled off the look effortlessly, making it an enjoyable visual experience. We can't wait to see more looks like this from her all summer! Natural makeup always works in favour of the actress, and her nude lipstick shade perfectly complemented her soft waves.

Deepika Padukone has once again left us in awe with her seamless ability to pull off intense colour separates, nailing the much-loved trend of colour-blocking. Styled by Shaleena Nathani, a while ago the actress made a grand appearance at a book launch event. Her ensemble featured a striking fuchsia one-shouldered top tucked into a pair of high-waisted and cropped red pants with pink rose fuchsia satin pumps from Balenciaga. To keep it simple, her choice of delicate pearl earrings was perfect. The flawless bronze makeup, featuring delicately lined eyes, nude lips, and defined eyebrows surely added to her beauty, proving once again that Deepika is a true colour-blocking fashion icon.

Janhvi Kapoor is a fashionista who isn't afraid to experiment with bold trends (her changing style over the years is proof of this). The actress was spotted wearing a colour-blocking playsuit that will have you dreaming about summer days. The Patinya playsuit features a flap of fabric on the front to create the illusion of a mini dress. The star added a neon belt on the feminine playsuit to create a more daring look. Styled by Lakshmi Lehr (wondering if it’s Lakshmi who really loves colour-blocking), Janhvi completed her outfit with quirky, heart-shaped Olivia Dar earrings in hot pink and soft pink pumps. With Janhvi's colour-blocking fashion game on point, we can't wait to see what she has in store for us next.

We're clearly sensing a pattern here with stylist Lakshmi Lehr who is definitely smashing it out of the park with the colour blocking. Samantha made a rather ravishing appearance on the last season of Koffee With Karan. Her coffee couture made heads turn but also strengthened her position in the fashion world.
