Come Diwali and our favourite Bollywood celebs are seen strutting in their trendiest of ethnic ensembles, giving us the inspiration we need to look our best during the festive season. Until now, the beautiful divas were often seen in bright colours, with red, pink, bottle green, royal blue and orange being the prominent ones. However this year, for the festive season, instead of the predictable brights, many went in for the mystical and dreamy pastel palette with ivory, peach and cream being the noteworthy shades. It’s not just Diwali, but seems like this trend is here to stay for the wedding season as well, with brides opting for drapes and lehengas in cool shades of pastel cream, ivory and dusty pink.

We have curated the best Diwali looks of our favourite celebs in pastel hues and we’re sure that it’s all the inspiration you need to look your elegant and stylish best this festive season.
