Ace designer Faraz Manan once again shines bright in Bollywood– this time in the shade of ivory! Bollywood actor Sara Ali Khan, daughter of actors Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Rao, stunned in an ivory gharara set by Manan on the second day of IIFA Awards. The contemporary fusion of a blingy peplum and gharara pants was a winner at the red carpet!
The Simmba actor took to her Instagram with a series of pictures showcasing the ivory coloured heavily embroidered pant suit crediting Manan. The short peplum kurta, featuring a round neckline complemented her fit and flared silhouette with its long sleeves and scalloped borders. Khan paired the extensively embroidered top with matching sharara pants. Minimal matching jewellery, bold eye makeup, a nude lip, open tresses and shimmering silver pumps completed her look for IIFA.
In the comment section, Manan used emojis to applaud how beautifully Sara carried the ensemble. Documenting the feat, he also shared her pictures with the caption, “Sara Ali Khan in Faraz Manan.”
For many Bollywood stars, Manan has been a favourite for far too long. He has worked with several A-listers in India; be it late Indian superstar Sridevi, actors Kiara Advani or Shah Rukh Khan – his creations have been the talk of the town ever since the famous Bollywood stars couldn’t stop raving about him.
But what is it about Faraz’s work that attracts Indian celebrities so much? In simple words, it’s the intricacy of his designs that singles out his ensembles from the rest of his counterparts. But for him, it’s not Bollywood he is particularly interested in, it’s the actor. “I think more than Bollywood, it is the actor or the talent who appreciates your clothes and wants to wear them,” Faraz told Vogue India. “This is something very encouraging for any designer. It is one artist appreciating another artist’s craft.”
On the work front, Sara was last seen on the big screen starring opposite Akshay Kumar in Atrangi Re. Her upcoming project includes Laxman Utekar’s yet-to-be-titled film with Vicky Kaushal.
