What’s life without some glitter and sparkle? Acing the shimmer dress trend are our favourite Bollywood divas who gracefully inspire us with fashion staples of the season. If you love the glamour and shimmer as much as these stars but lack the confidence to style your outfits, you’re not alone. Take inspiration from these queens who light up every room they enter with their confident stature and statement-worthy ensembles.

Adding the drama to Bollywood and serving us with envious shimmer dress looks are 8 Bollywood actresses who believe in the bling game.

Captioned chandelier chic, Ananya Panday in her regal Kylie-inspired shimmer dress gown is a vision to behold. Taking to her Instagram handle, this is not the first time the Gen Z actor has served us with her brazen outfit choices that are keeping us glued to the ’gram. Seductively stylish, Ananya’s nude and silver shimmer gown with matching jewellery and sleek bun updo is something we can use for the festive season.

Stunning us in an oxblood mini wrap shimmer dress, Kriti Sanon looks ravishing. Her sultry smokey eyes, ring clusters and sexy black heels draw the right kind of attention to her long, toned legs. There is no doubt that maroons and pinks have overtaken muted colours for the season, and this diva shows us just why the LBD is a yesteryear choice. Oozing panache, Kriti’s outfit is perfect for an intimate date night dinner.

The next Gen Z star from the Kapoor clan is the effervescent Janhvi Kapoor. Looking fabulous in a purple halter neck shimmer dress, the star is seen posing with her younger sister and budding actor Shanaya Kapoor in matching shimmer dresses. Her deep neckline and perfectly fitted ensemble complement her vibrant makeup with soft smokey eyes. Flaunting her textured open hair and bubbly girl-next-door-smile, Janhvi’s sparkling dress is ready to conquer the shimmer trend in Bollywood.

The Queen B of shimmer dresses, Malaika Arora bagged the title of glamorous diva back when the Gen Z star kids were literal babies. The OG of bold fashion pieces, Malaika stuns in a floor-length gold and nude shimmer gown as she poses for the ’gram. Looking like a fine wine with her open luscious golden locks and minimal makeup, Malaika can make any outfit look runway ready, and this one is proof.

The Pataudi princess is among the few experimental young divas who embrace new trends with elegance. Looking ravishing in a bustier-style mini shimmer dress in olive green, Sara’s ensemble looks fierce and flawless. Showing off her voluminous mane with soft brown eyes and glossy lips, the diva’s no-jewellery look is every carefree Gen Z’s dream look. Styled with matching pencil heels, you can try this look for a semi-formal dinner party with friends.

There’s a reason Priyanka Chopra is an icon and legendary star of the industry. Seen in an offbeat combination of rust and psychedelic shimmer, Priyanka’s sexy high-slit glitzy dress is every girl’s dream outfit. Looking like a queen ready to conquer, with voluminous curled hair and a cat eye look, is something we will fantasise about for a very long time. PC’s matching pumps and old-world charm are an example of luxury couture at its best.

Hello yellow! Looking radiant in a bright shimmer dress, Kiara Advani’s thigh-high slit gown with a plunging neckline and strappy back is creating a ruckus in Bollywood. Her perfectly chiselled cheekbones highlighted with a strobe of colour and neatly braided hair, compliment her clean aesthetics as she flaunts her sexy silhouette in a sensuous floor-length gown.

Looking like the brightest North Star, Disha Patani’s nude bustier shimmer dress is a show stealer. Glammed up from head to toe in matching makeup and charismatic charm, Disha’s ethereal number has left us in awe of the actor’s outfit choices. Disha’s dramatic look is saved in our book of fashion picks that come in handy during cocktail parties, intimate gatherings and more.
