Every style, silhouette, colour, and pattern we can think of have been part of Bebo’s look-book, and she pulls them off with grace and effortlessness like no one else. Every outfit, including Kareen Kapoor’s co-ord sets, sarees, kaftans, skirts, and maxi gowns, looks like it was made just for her. She emanates a grace and confidence that elevates even the most casual clothing.
Her airport appearances and casual ensembles for intimate dinners stir up just as much excitement as her red carpet outfits. The supremely talented actress, stunning fashion icon, doting mother, and wife turns 42 today, and there could be no better day to look back on some of our favourite fashion moments that gave us major fashion goals!
Turning Heads In Traditionals
Unique saris and avant-garde lehengas are standard fare for a superstar of Kareena Kapoor Khan’s stature. If you want to add some new pieces to your collection of Indian clothing, you can always turn to Bebo’s outfit for some outfit inspiration. White from head to toe is a staple in her wardrobe, and so are beautiful pastel hues. Kareena Kapoor Khan’s keen eye has her choosing shapes that make a statement while looking effortless and easy. Strappy blouses and feather-light dupattas are a combination she swears by, and has been seen sporting multiple times including the ravishing ivory gown she chose for Isha Ambani’s wedding, that we absolutely adored. The ivory organza lehenga made with beautiful zardozi embroidery and delicate silver sequins is definitely an unforgettable piece.
Her selection of sarees is also one that ensures all eyes are on her. The risqué saree and blouse from Sonam Kapoor’s wedding reception, the baby pink organza item for Ranbir-Alia’s nuptials, the revolutionary champagne number, or the mustard yellow drape from Armaan Jain’s wedding all were iconic in their own way.
Her kurtas too are the perfect amalgamation of comfort and style. Light, breezy and yet beautiful- Kareena Kapoor Khan’s kurtis have everything from pastel hues, to zari embroidery to paisley prints. Her blue kurti for the promotion of her latest release Laal Singh Chaddha was also a hit in our books. Here is a look from Kareena Kapoor’s Instagram.
Glitter and Glamour
Her track record with western clothing is also one for the books. She has sported glamorous gowns and sparkling maxis on many occasions, whether it was walking down the red carpet during an awards ceremony or striding the ramp as a showstopper. Kareena Kapoor Khan has repeatedly experimented with dresses with surface manipulation, billowing sleeves, flares and tiers, metallic accents, and risqué necklines, paired of course with stunning beautiful embellishments. She doesn’t shy away from dramatic silhouettes and over-the-top patterns. Picking a favourite, was definitely a challenge but on the top of the list is the beyond stunning green gown, black layered mesh number and golden modern-age body con silhouette dress.
The faux leather ensemble, with a thigh high slit is also one of our favourites. The unique green and black colour pairing, sweetheart neckline as well as the entire silhouette is out-of-the-box yet gorgeous. The smokey eyes, black strappy heels and pin straight hair tie the look together beautifully.
Keeping It Casual
When it comes to blending style and sass with comfort and coolness, no one does it like Bebo and her casual outfits are proof of how she keeps it light and breezy while also marking a statement. From denim on from that is a timeliness favourite of the actress to oversized button-down shirts, Kareena Kapoor Khan looks great even when completing day-to-day chores.
Her looks encapsulate the vibe of an understated cool, that is stylish yet relaxed. Oversized sweatshirts, cycling shorts, sunglasses, statement sneakers, top knot bun- the list can go on because casual pieces are a must-have in her wardrobe.
Her classic signature kaftans are a favourite among fans, who turn to Kareena for immediate inspiration when it comes to breezy summer numbers. Her airport looks and gym fits, are aso nothing short of good-looking, casual pieces that anyone can inculcate into their day-to-day looks and elevate their style. Her coffee runs have become pretty much iconic, and are well-known for being the best inspiration for the quintessential day-to-day look.
Fancy In Formal
Kareena Kapoor Khan is the OG boss lady and she knows how to style formal looks to perfection. Whether they’re menswear-inspired coordinates or chic body-con dresses, she knows how to put together a formal ensemble that exudes grace, elegance and class. Her prior looks are testimony of the same, whether it’s blazers, trousers, formal dresses or shirts- she’s got the formal wear lookbook figured out. The cream shirt with a plunging neckline, tucked into black trousers and clinched at the waist with a waistband, looked chic to say the least. Her slicked back hair, minimalist makeup and dainty silver jewellery had us taking notes.
The monochrome number that she chose for the MAMI Movie Mela in 2019, was the epitome of tastefulness.
Another time was when she was styled in a sensuous jacket and chic pants, as she sported an all black ensemble during Veere Di wedding promotions. As styled by Rhea Kapoor, she tied the look together with a sleek bun, winged eyeliner and a bold red lip. Another stunning number in which she channels her boss lady energy is the blue pant-suit that looked absolutely power-packed. Corsets, blazers, pant-suits and sleek dresses are all wardrobe staples for the actress when it comes to formal occasions.
