There is a fine line between inspiration and bluntly copying style of a fellow actor. And I think Alia Bhatt is tripping perilously between the two at the moment.

Alia opened Karan Johar’s Koffee with Karan Season 5, sharing the couch with Shahrukh Khan. They are out promoting their new movie, Dear Zindagi, set to release on November 25th 2016. Styled by Ami Patel, she walked in hand-in-hand with SRK, wearing a beautifully tailored white pantsuit, with pointed-toe fishnet Louboutin. She accessorised the look with a mix of feminine and chunky antique silver rings, against black clipped nails. She kept her makeup classic – smoky eyes, delicate pink blush and red pout.


While she looked lovely, she resembled Deepika Padukone to a startling degree. It had a lot to do with centre-parted beachy hair, classic pout and the infamous pantsuit. Deepika is more often than not seen channeling the #girlboss in tailored pantsuits, and has subtly marked her territory as far as suiting up for fairer gender goes.

Though Alia looked lovely, she seemed a tad bit old for her 23-year old self. Also, she is one of the few actresses in Bollywood who have a unique, not-heavily-influenced-by-a-stylist way of dressing that works wonders for her. She manages to adopt trends in ways that work for her personality AND age, and we think sticking to that mantra might just be the best thing for the lovely young star.

And on that note, let’s look at some of her most stunning looks in recent times, where she looked every bit of Alia Bhatt that we have come to love:




P.S. The first episode of Koffee with Karan was amazing. It had me in giggles more than once; do watch it every Sunday (I think) at 9PM on StarWorld if you fancy some OTT Bollywood masti.
