Bollywood and Bengali Fashion

With the ongoing festive season, it is but natural that we bring out our best attire and start pampering ourselves a little bit more! With the onset of Mahalaya, and Navratri season, it’s important to seek some fashion inspiration 😉 

I love the way Bengali beauties often look the most ravishing during Durga Puja. I am particularly inspired with the puja saree. The eye-makeup holds a lot of importance along with the attire. And least I miss – the red bindi! It’s not just about the traditional sarees, but the Bengali attire in today’s times has many modern designs to woo every kind of woman. 

If you are as fascinated with the Bengali culture (like me, and our popular Bollywood), do check out these leading ladies from the Indian film industry. I have compiled these photographs for the fashion savvy.
