Indians are no doubt obsessed with fair complexion and Bollywood is no exception. Apart from the fair toned beauties ruling the fashion world there have been the dusky divas who have looked super confident in their skin tone. Wheatish complexion can be carried with attitude and ease with the right colors to enhance that perfect look. Read to know the perfect 10 colors worn by Bollywood dusky divas with panache.
With the correct shade, fabric and silhouette, red can surely make you look like a Diva. At the recently held Emmy awards function, Priyanka glowed in a one shoulder scarlet red dress by Jason Wu. The flowy empire waist dress accentuated her curves along with the skin tone. With hair tied neatly in a ponytail and red pout, the actress looked like an international super star.
Yellow is one color that looks absolutely stunning on a darker tone provided it’s a subtle shade and not a loud one. At the recent theatre festival, Lara looked like sunshine in the Sukriti and Akriti yellow ensemble. Her stylist Esha Amiin made her look like a complete Indian beauty with the flowy gotta patti sharara styled with a gajra tied on a neat bun. The look was rounded by a golden Anthropologie clutch.
Pastels work best for wheatish skin tones as they help to enhance the glow by bringing out the best of your yellow undertones. Shilpa Shetty donned this color in a Deepankshi and Reena dress with a cascading ruffle at the back. Her stylist Sanjana Batra made sure the look was very chic and sexy with statement earrings from Isharya and puffed hair.
Cream and beige can never go wrong as it complements darker skin tones more as compared to fairer ones. Neha Dhupia looks great in an embroidered cream and beige lehenga by Rahul Mishra with an embellished jumper shirt. What looked best were the white clutch, Sunita Shekawat jewellery and red lips.
Two colors that can never go wrong when comes to any skin tone are Black and White. Just go carefree and wear them for that sexy feel. Look at Sonam Kapoor at a recent event where she carries a Stephane Rolland gown with upmost attitude and elegance. Red pout and perfectly tied hair complemented the overall look.
Black is the perfect color that works well for both fair and medium brown to wheatish skin tones. Kajol looks splendid and sexy in a black fitted gown by Gauri and Nainika. The belted gown did wonders to the look when combined with tear drop earrings from Farah Khan Jewellery. Loved the different shade of lip color that gave a refreshing look to the entire ensemble.
Pink is the hottest colour when it comes to bringing that perfect glow on your skin. And you need not be peaches to cream complexion to wear it. Candy pink, coral, peach or rose pink can be our best bets but fuchsia and hot pink will also look super cool for that bold statement. Take a clue from Esha Gupta who is wearing a pink lehenga from Swati and Sunaina. Her simple crop top with a printed lehenga and dupatta looked pretty impressive. What added to the look were bangles from Amrapali and earrings from Gehna jewellers.
Green colour needs to be chosen with utmost care as the wrong colour can kill your complete look. Choosing a teal green or olive green can make you look like a diva. Just stay away from bright greens and neons. At a recent event, Diana Penty wore a teal green maxi dress from Payal Khandelwal. She stole the look by wearing a cluff and necklace from Isharya with tied up hair and nude lips. Pretty as always.
Grey, black, ivory are a few colors that are a current rage for that perfect trendy modern chic look. These colors can never go wrong and gives that sober and subtle look be it a casual outing, lunch with friends or meeting with a client. Deepika surely looked like a girl next door with a grey knit long sleeve dress from H&M with black pumps, Isharya earrings and puffed hair. So simple yet elegant.
Electric blue or indigo blue are the colors that work effortlessly when it comes to wheatish tones. Pooja hedge looked amazing in an indigo gown by Swapnil Shinde where her curvy bodice was accentuated with a well fitted ruched gown with an off shoulder detail. Curly hair with little makeup did the trick. Totally loved it.
