malaika arora khan is like the indian version of j-lo. she is always smokin hot and, no matter how old she gets, maintains her diva status.
leave it up to malaika to bring us insane short dresses showing off her insane body, wild prints, crazy cuts and flashy bling – all the time looking sexy and not over the top.
she even makes the occasional shalwar kameez/sari/lehnga ooze with sexiness.
here are my top 5 malaika looks from throughout the years:
:: amrita arora sangeet 2009 ::
malaika doesn’t usually make appearances in eastern wear, but when she does – boy is it worth the wait. i loved her in this shantanu and nikhil outfit as soon as i saw it. the silver shirt is embellished with zari and contrasting emerald stone work. it is paired with a simple chiffon dupatta and green churidaar. i love this look. gorgeous emerald earrings finish off the look.
:: louis luxury cruise launch 2009 ::
what an absolutely beautiful color – it works perfectly against her skintone and her hair color. this fun, bright tiered dress is paired up with nude peep tow louboutins (obvi) and stacked gold bangles.
::star entertainment awards 2010 ::
malaika does victoria beckham before any other bollywood diva out there. and man oh man does she do it well. i loved that she picked such a basic vb design, proving that she can do sophisticated as well as she does sexy. a python clutch, a black cuff and off-white peep toes complete this very minimalistic look.
:: dabaang premiere 2010 ::
thas what i’m talkin bout baby.
malaika + cavalli –> nuff said.
:: filmfare 2010 ::
this is one of my favorite looks out of bollywood. this monisha jaisingh gown is just to die for. it is such a breath of fresh air, especially in a place where jewel tones, satin, skin-clinging dresses seem to be everyone’s favorite. the white, again, is exquisite on her. it would have been an ethereal dress but you know malaika had to bring is some oomph, hence the thigh-high slit. skin-show aside, i do think this look is lovely. i am especially fond of the white and gold combo.
