Colorblocking | Red Carpet Inspiration

With the cold breeze bidding adieu, spring is almost here to say hello and so are colourful hues. It's time of the year when we welcome summer / resort trends and see them all around us. Some  fashionistas have been experimenting with these trends already, one of our current favourites being Colorblocking, a trend that burst on the fashion scene in the 80s - 90s and keeps getting bigger year after year. We saw it at Bottega Veneta, Akris among others last year and the trend is fast becoming a favourite on the red carpet too. Celebrities took to colorblocking and gave their outfits a spin of their own, but it looks like the orange and pink combination was a clear favourite. We spotted some popular Indian and International celebrities sporting this trend and we must say, it's turning out to be one colourful affair!

Who? - Taylor Swift
Where? - Grammy Awards (2016)
Taylor Swift shone like a bright star in this gorgeous Versace outfit, as she walked home with three Grammy awards this year. The custom coral and fuchsia two piece outfit, bold lips and that hot new hairdo was the perfect combination for a superstar. Slay it, girl!

Who? - Katrina Kaif
Where? - Fitoor Promotions (2016)
Bollywood actress Katrina Kaif was among the first few to sport the color blocking trend in 2016. Dressed in a Jill Jill Stuart two tone gown, Katrina kept it simple with just bright pink lips and a pair of gold hoop earrings by Isharya. Perfect to brighten up any dull day, no?

Who? - Rihanna
Where? - Night out in New York (2011)
Trust Rihanna to make us fall in love with everything that she picks! Although she wore this outfit in 2011 (Yes! Almost five years ago), it is still one of our favourites. The magenta and orange combination here is perfect for both Fall and Spring. Perfect outfit to channel your inner rockstar, no?


Who? Emma Stone
Where? - Met Gala (2014)
Ah! The queen of colour blocking. Is there anyone who can nail this trend better than her? Remember her Giambattista Valli peplum ensemble? We couldn't take our eyes off that gorgeous look. Though she has impressed us with her colourful choices at several red carpet events, one of our favourites has to be this pink on pink two piece Thakoon outfit, that she chose for the Met Gala in 2014.

Who? - Richa Chaddha
Where? - Dior dinner (2015)
Another Indian actress, this time Richa Chaddha chose this gorgeous Andrew Gn outfit for a Dior dinner last year. The bright, bold colours compliment her gorgeous skin tone perfectly. Oh, and we love how she has kept it minimal with both less make up and accessories.

Who? - Leslie Mann
Where? - The Other Woman premiere (2014)
Now, this lady is some serious inspiration! Flaunting that perfect figure and looking absolutely stunning in this orchid silk linen gazar bandeau and poppy silk gazar draped ball skirt by Monique Lhuillier is none other than Leslie Mann. What's amazing is that instead of going minimal, she chose to add a touch of drama by colour blocking her nails and lips as well. Also, don't miss those gorgeous Oscar Tiye Cleopatra sandals.

Well, we can't wait to sport the colour blocking trend this season! We are eyeing our favourite outfits and accessories already. Do you have a favourite colour blocking look? Do let us know.
