Alia Bhatt’s designer anarkali is just perfect for a mehandi celebration

Alia-Bhatt

Alia Bhatt has been very busy promoting Kalank lately, and today seems to have been no different for the actor. This afternoon, the star was spotted spreading word about her upcoming film once again on the sets of a reality show. Her pick for the outing was a pretty peach anarkali by Anita Dongre. Bhatt accessorised her look with a pair of silver earrings by Minerali and gold heels. Accompanying her at Kalank‘s most recent event were co-stars Varun Dhawan and Sonakshi Sinha. While the former complemented Bhatt’s pastel look with a soft pink kurta, the latter played with prints in Anamika Khanna separates. If you’ve been on the lookout for a peach wedding-ready look, however, Bhatt’s anarkali is the one you need to check out.

Alia Bhatt’s designer anarkali is for every woman who loves soothing hues

If you’ve been keeping up with Alia Bhatt’s recent sartorial choices, you would know that keeping her on-screen character’s look in mind, the star has been dressing largely in Indian ethnic wear for Kalank‘s promotional rounds. While the first look of Kalank had Bhatt dressing in a white Manish Malhotraanarkali, the launch of its song ‘First Class’ saw her meeting fans in a striking black Anita Dongre kurta. Her latest anarkali featured delicate embroidery and a lightweight tulle dupatta that made it perfect for a day event like a mehandi party, or even a poolside engagement celebration. Bhatt went the elegant route with her beauty look and opted for lightly kohled eyes, glossy lips, dewy makeup and freshly blowdried hair. A pastel ensemble like Alia Bhatt’s is a refreshing addition to your festive wardrobe if you’re bored of bold jewel tones. Get something similar for yourself today!

5 Easy Hacks to Customize and Perfect Your Shoes

We celebrate and glorify running shoes at Runner’s World, but we also aren’t afraid to modify and customize them. After all, they’re a tool to help you accomplish your goals. Here are our favorite tweaks to make footwear meet our needs.


No-Slip Grip

You don’t need a fancy traction device to run on snow and ice. Hit the hardware store for #10 x 3/8-inch hex-head screws. Drilling into the thickest parts of the sole, add six on the forefoot and four on the heel. You can take them out quickly (with a power drill) to run in dry conditions, and replace the screws when they wear down.

Lace to Fit

A few years ago, we got shoes that were missing a top eyelet. The heel slipped, so we grabbed a pair of hole-punch pliers and added our own. These pliers are essential for runners who want to adjust the lacing of their shoes to fix fit issues.

Install Drainage

A problem with too many shoes is that when water gets in through the top, there’s no way for it to get out. Break out a ¼-inch drill bit and add six holes through the thinnest spots on the forefoot. When you run, you’ll pump the water out.

Patch It Up

A common tool for runners until recently was Shoe Goo. Parts were always coming loose on shoes. That doesn’t happen much anymore, but occasionally a rubber patch will work loose. Just add a dab of glue and stick it back on.

Let ’Em Breathe

If you find a new shoe causes blisters on your pinky toe late in runs when your feet swell, or presses a little too much on a bunion. Take an X-Acto knife to the upper and cut a window, or make small slits over the areas of pressure for extra room.
