Seek inspiration from the Karvachauth get-up of actresses

Our favourite Nirma Beauty Soap diva, Sonali Bendre dressed up in a gorgeous red silk saree with a golden patti for Karvachauth 2019. Her simple yet classy look was completed with a gold chain and earrings. Acing the short-haired look with her husband Goldie Behl by her side, Sonali posed for a warm picture on Karvachauth, and we can’t stop admiring its love and sweetness!

For Karvachauth 2021, Sonali took her styling game to a whole new level. She wore a 19-year-old wedding lehenga by Manish Malhotra, and the bright combination of her lehenga colours, makeup, and hairstyle have our hearts! She accessorised her pink and orange lehenga with a Bulgari Mangalsutra, and diamond studs. Along with her Karvachauth pictures, Sonali Bendre also posted a heartwarming caption describing what Karvachauth means to her.

For Karvachauth 2022, the fitness queen Shilpa Shetty donned a stunning red saree with a gold foil print sleeveless blouse gold. She paired the saree with an emerald and diamond necklace.

Shilpa Shetty’s 2021 Karvachauth look featured a red kurta with golden-bordered sleeves. She kept her look traditional and elegant and accessorised with the classic red bangles, mangalsutra, a red bindi, and sindoor. The entire get-up, with her hair let loose, made Shilpa look like a glowing newlywed bride!

Shilpa’s 2020 Karvachauth look is our favourite because she made the effort to document the entire process of breaking her fast in the traditional way, with her husband Raj Kundra, fasting with her. The colour red features through all of Shilpa’s Karvachauth look, and she wears the colour beautifully. For her 2020 look, the actress chose a red saree with gold buttis and accessorised it with small jhumkas, red bangles, and a heavy neckpiece. For her hair, she chose a neat, clutched look where her wavy strands beautifully complemented the attire.

For her 2020 Karvachauth look, PeeCee chose a plain red ruffled saree and paired it with a strappy white blouse. She accessorised her saree with a simple gold chain, a big diamond, a gold finger ring, matching earrings, and white gold bangles matching the other jewellery. She wore a traditional Indian bindi, red lipstick, and sindoor to complete the look.

Priyanka Chopra’s 2019 Karvachauth look features her posing for fun and adorable pictures with her husband Nick Jonas, where she wears a red silk saree and Nick wears a traditional Indian off-white silk kurta. Priyanka’s saree has a rich gotta pati, and her blouse has intricate gold work on it. The actress completes the look with mehendi-dyed hands, a beautiful stoned finger ring, red bangles, a simple golden chain with a pendant, and gold-toned chime earrings.

Ditching the desi saree look, the gorgeous Mira Rajput Kapoor chose to celebrate Karvachauth 2021 wearing a fuchsia-printed sharara set by the renowned designer Ridhi Mehra. Mira’s Karvachauth post caption echoed the same sense of redefined approach to Karvachauth that her outfit had. She went for an open-haired look with the front strands neatly pinned. Mira kept it plain and simple with emerald and diamond earrings and posed for her Karvachauth picture, which is simply adorable!

One of the most adorable star couples, Virushka’s 2019 Karvachauth pictures are such goals! Anushka looked radiant in a red chiffon floral saree, while Virat slayed it in a black kurta. Anushka paired her saree with elaborate chandbalis, gold, diamond, and red bangles, a neat bun with roses, a mangal sutra, kohled eyes, and some sindoor. Their Karvachauth picture is flawless and so gram-worthy!

Bipasha Basu rocked two looks for Karvachauth 2020, and we love them both! While a preplanned family dinner compelled the couple to celebrate Karvachauth on the go (that is, completing the ritual of breaking their fast) right outside their car, the couple still managed to look stunning! The bong beauty wore a white chikankari suit, while the dashing Karan Grover wore a white V-neck t-shirt and a black checked blazer. Bipasha’s look was made complete with bangles and silver-plated chandbalis.

The couple had the ritual of fasting for each other, and their celebrations were as sweet as this gesture. Bipasha chose a rusty orange suit with heavy gold work around the neck and on the dupatta for her second look. Her look was completed with matching jhumkas, finger rings, and bangles. A big red bindi, red lipstick, and sindoor made Bipasha look stunning and radiant!

Katrina Kaif celebrated her first Karvachauth with Vicky Kaushal in 2022, and she was glowing in her traditional attire. The actress chose a red saree with a gota patti and paired it with a multi-coloured blouse. She completed her look with red bangles, a mangalsutra, classy dangler earrings, a subtle red bindi, and sindoor. The pictures Kat posted on Karvachauth are love and sweetness personified!

Natasha Dalal and Varun Dhawan’s love story goes way back, and their Karvachauth pictures from 2022 exhibit the depth of their relationship. The happy couple posed with genuine smiles, and Natasha Dalal looked pretty in her simple yet elegant pink coord set. She paired it with a bandhani shrug, a silver bindi, jhumkas, and complementing bracelets. Varun looked handsome in a striped kurta of the same shade as they posed for their Karvachauth pictures!
