The newest bride in tinseltown, Katrina Kaif was seen leaving for her wedding festivities dressed in a bright yellow sharara set by Anamika Khanna. The outfit featured a kurta with detailed floral embroidery in white and pastel shades with a V-neckline.

A pair of statement earrings along with a stack of bangles and rings rounded off the set.
The gorgeous Kiara Advani sported a sharara suit quite a few times this year. But two particular looks stay in our minds rent free. During Shershaah promotions, the actress was seen wearing a yellow and white sharara set by Tamanna Punjabi Kapoor that featured a yellow kurta decked in floral embroidery, silver gota patti work, and a flattering halter neck.

The actor paired the blouse with high-waisted sharara pants.

Shilpa Shetty also slipped into a vibrant yellow sharara set by Seema Gujral. The fuss-free sharara set was crafted using lightweight georgette and completely doused in intricate mirror work. The highlight of the look was the strappy peplum-esque kurta that featured a sweetheart neckline and a front slip. The piece was paired with equally comfy flared pants and a matching scalloped dupatta. Shilpa chose traditional silver accessories like a pair of earrings, a stack of kadas and an ornate oxidised nose pin.
For a pre-wedding festivity, Alia chose a vibrant pink sharara set by her go-to designer, Manish Malhotra. The separates consisted of sharara pants and a crop top, all embroidered with pretty floral thread work in shades of yellow, green, blue and pink. Instead of a kurta top, her top was a sultry corset blouse. The look was paired with a sleeveless jacket cover-up, rather than a cumbersome dupatta. The star completed the look with a pair of chandbali earrings with uncut diamonds and a bracelet.
For a Diwali party hosted, Priyanka chose a velvet sharara set from the shelves of Sabyasachi. The outfit featured a strappy bold floral kurta embellished in gota patti work on the hem, with similar work being mirrored on the borders of the accompanying zari dupatta.

The tinted sunglasses she accessorised with gave this outfit a distinctly throwback 70s feel, as did her long vintage, beaded necklace and stacked silver bangles.
Karisma chose a shimmering red sharara set by Ritika Mirchandani. It featured a kurta that was intricately embellished with beadwork all over the bodice, and its geometric surface work extended to its sheer full sleeves. It bore buttons and structured shoulders that gave the short kurta a sharper look, while its peplum silhouette added a feminine touch. The kurta was teamed with matching sharara pants and the look was sealed with diamond earrings and fingerings.
Disha opted for a teal sharara set by Arpita Mehta for her friend’s wedding festivity.
