Filmmaker Karan Johar hosted a lavish birthday party for his Dharma Productions CEO and close friend Apoorva Mehta who turned 50 recently. Ace set designer Amrita Mahal, who is known for set designing of several Dharma films including Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani and Brahmastra, designed the theme of the starry birthday bash and we must say, she did her job pretty well.
Needless to say, this bash witnessed the crème-de-la-crème f Bollywood dressed in their stylish best. From sheer gowns to dapper suits and fusion drapes, this soiree witnessed it all and so much more. Check out the sartorial highlights from this star-studded gala:
Shining bright like a diamond was Janhvi Kapoor with her mirror-embellished Manish Malhotra gown that gave a peek of her feisty neckline and accentuated those envy-worthy curves. Skipping statement accessories, the diva opted for a dewy base with a shiny nude pout, smokey eyes and soft curls to complete her dazzling look.
Ananya made our jaws drop with her mesh Aadnevik number that bore a daring center slit and came with a sexy corset detailing. Going easy on the accessory front, the actress opted for a pair of elegant diamond studs to complement her outfit. A subtle glam with tresses styled in beach waves did justice to her beauty.
Host Karan made for both, the king of hearts and spades in a custom Kaushik Velendra tuxedo. His red and black tux was elevated further with a fancy satin bow tie, studded Louboutin shoes and spunky Loewe glasses.
La Vie En Rose! Alia channeled her floral power in a Magda Butrym number that featured a strapless midi with a daring neckline. She layered her outfit with a matching blazer that gave her sexy midi a bossy spin. Keeping her glam neutral, the stunner completed her look with a tinted glossy pout and beach wave curls.
