We have chalked out the best Diwali 2021 Looks of Bollywood Actresses that are sure to help you finalize your picks for the approaching wedding season. Let's get started already!

Wedding Fashion Inspiration From Bollywood Divas' Diwali Looks

Alia Bhatt In Simplistic Bandhani Lehenga

Alia Bhatt once again reinstated her love for Sabyasachi creations and opted for a purple bandhani lehenga from his coveted collection this Diwali. Her simplistic outfit featured minimal golden accents on the blouse and lehenga borders. A pair of jhumkis and a tiny bindi is all she needed to round off the look. PS: We're majorly eyeing that blouse design! Btw, bandhani is here to stay and you can bookmark her look for a mehndi or a haldi ceremony.

Malaika Arora Goes Bold In Saree

Malaika Arora is hands down the OG fashionista of the tinsel-town! She proved the same yet again with this year's Diwali party look. Not that we needed another proof, but she has us immensely impressed with the bold route she took. The Chaiyya Chaiyya girl was stunned in a Manish Malhotra saree that came in a vivid combination of magenta and metallic parrot green. Furthermore, she upped the glam game with a statement head-turning potli. Want to nail the bridesmaid look this season? Take cues from Malla, we say!

Shanaya Kapoor's Simple Saree with A Standout Blouse

Never underestimate the power of a standout blouse! Well, that's the lesson Shanaya Kapoor's Diwali look screams. She slipped into a basic green saree with a petite border and paired it with an embellished metallic blouse that took the style quotient a notch higher. Yet another steal-worthy bridesmaid look you must pin!

Also, you cannot miss out on this uber-simple yet so chic mogra hair bun!

Priyanka Chopra & Her Glam Pastel Fits

Beating FOMO the right way, Priyanka Chopra hosted a big Diwali bash for her desi friends abroad. She also attended an array of parties this festive season. Of course, in some surreal lehengas. She shone like a patakha in glam pastel lehengas - one of them was a floral Arpita Mehta ensemble with an ornate mirror-embellished bustier blouse whereas the other one was a nude-hued statement Falguni Shane Peacock lehenga with threadwork splayed all over.

Be A Colour Riot Like Sanjana Sanghi

Love embracing colours? Then you might just wanna steal some major inspiration from actress Sanjana Sanghi's recent festive looks. She rocked a quirky printed Torani lehenga for this Diwali and oh boy, we love how she owned the outfit replete with vivid prints and motifs. A fresh, natural-looking makeup teamed with an ornate pair of danglers and a contrasting bindi is how she styled it. That's a perf mehndi look, we would say!

Another colourful outfit Sanjana rocked this season is this Sukriti and Aakriti Anarkali featuring a great play of colours on a white canvas. Have a day wedding ceremony to attend? This is the outfit you should be eyeing at.

Jacqueline Fernandez's Romance with Red

A red Banarasi saree. That's exactly what Jacqueline Fernandez slipped into to celebrate Diwali this year. Are we complaining? Hell, no! Being suckers for glam looks soaked in traditions, Jacqueline made our hearts flutter in absolute joy. Also, that romantic old-worldly rose-replete hairdo is worth obsessing over. Jacqueline's Diwali look is a reminder for brides that a red Banarasi saree is a trousseau-essential.

Khushi Kapoor's Princessy Pink Lehenga

It would be an understatement to say Khushi Kapoor made our hearts skip a beat with her Diwali look this year. The diva, who recently turned 21, gave us a major princessy vibe in a pink Manish Malhotra lehenga. Dusted with a dash of sequin and glorious chikankari details, the lehenga is straight out bridesmaid dreams. Special mention to the off-shoulder blouse featuring statement sleeves that upped the glam factor by multi-folds.

Janhvi Kapoor Hails Mirror Embellishments

Just like cousin Shanaya, Janhvi Kapoor also donned a green Manish Malhotra saree. However, Jahnvi played the bling game well with her mirror-embellished ensemble. If you are on the lookout for something minimal that also matches the glitz of Indian shaadis, a mirror-work saree with a standout blouse is a great option.

Sonam Kapoor's Embraces The Whimsical White 

White is Sonam Kapoor's colour. Her ivory-themed mehndi function made it quite evident. And must we add, brides, are also not shying away from this hue for their wedding festivities. Serving the new-traditional feels right, Sonam Kapoor embraced a heavy white chikan Anarkali.

Deepika Padukone's Simplistic Elegance

Simplicity is the key! And that's the road Deepika Padukone took this Diwali. She donned an exquisite silk organza kurta set in a pretty grape pink hue. Featuring intricate embroideries and a scalloped dupatta, the Torani outfit had us smitten at the first glance. This suit is a great pick for a bride's trousseau or to attend an initiate day wedding soiree.

Mrunal Thakur's Mustard Romance

Mustard lehengas and Indian weddings are a match made in heaven! Be it haldi, mehndi or the main wedding ceremony, it is one colour that complements all the occasions. Amid a vast ocean of mustard lehengas, Mrunal Thakur gave us a look to remember this Diwali. She wore a Puneet Balana ensemble comprising a bandhani skirt, embellished blouse and solid dupatta. Quite a refreshing take on Bandhani lehengas!
