From Kareena Kapoor's Baby Bump Style To Harry Styles' Gown, 12 Biggest Fashion Moments Of 2020
Whether it was celebrity baby bumps on display or stars flouting gender norms, these 12 fashion moments made headlines in 2020.
1. Fashion Weeks Went Digital
Fashion showcases, as we knew them, were held in swanky hotels and expansive grounds with everything from fabrics drapes to celebrity showstoppers coming to life before our eyes. Not in 2020. The Coronavirus pandemic closed down the large scale events across the globe and from Milan to Mumbai, the week-long fashion showcases were live-streamed on websites and social media. It also led to designers moving to e-commerce platforms from brick-and-mortar stores to retail their goods.
2. Kareena Kapoor's Baby Bump Style Made Headlines
Kareena Kapoor never fails to make fashion headlines so a pregnant Kareena Kapoor only does that doubly so. When the star, with husband Saif Ali Khan, announced that baby number 2 was on the way, the news went viral. Since then, the star's pregnancy style has been trending with every outfit she wears, whether it's a fitted bodycon dress or a two-piece track set with her baby bump on display.
3. Moschino's Baguette Bag Looked Good Enough To Devour
Cannot get enough of carbs but keeping a watch on your calories? Then Moschino's baguette bag might just do it for you. Fashioned to look like a loaf of the lengthy French bread, it wasn't just the design that turned heads but also its price. The interweb couldn't stop talking about the bag that retailed at almost 1 lakh Indian rupees. If you still can't get enough, they also make bags that look like croissants and cake slices.
4. Priyanka Chopra's Plunge Neck Gown Turned Heads
At the Grammys 2020, no one could take their eyes off Priyanka Chopra. Wearing a navel grazing Ralph and Russo white flowing gown which showcased her studded belly button, it took us back to the JLo early 2000s era. Whether you loved it or hated it, you couldn't ignore it.
5. Harry Styles Wore A Gown
In lace blouses and pearl necklaces, Harry Styles has always been one to flout gender norms. When he covered Vogue US's December 2020 magazine wearing a tiered gown, it took things up a notch. It definitely came with its fair share of controversy accompanied with chants of 'bring back manly men' but will go down in history as an iconic fashion moment.
6. Bollywood Couldn't Get Enough Of The Sequin Saree
The sequin saree emerged as a hot fashion trend during the Diwali season. Everybody who was anybody, including Kiara Advani, Malaika Arora and Katrina Kaif sported the shimmering ethnic look. Something tells us we're yet to see more of it this holiday season.
7. Gucci's Upside Down Glasses Grabbed Attention
Gucci never fails to make a statement with their line of luxury garments and accessories. This season, the upside down glasses did that job. An inverted form of the regular cat eye spectacles, it retailed at approximately Rs.60,000. Though unusual to say the certain, we're certain whimsical dressers would like to try it.
8. Celebrity Bridal Looks Were Red All Around
The Coronavirus pandemic notwithstanding, a number of Bollywood celebrity weddings like that of Neha Kakkar and Kajal Aggarwal's took place in 2020. Red was a running bridal fashion trend throughout and whether in lehengas or sarees, the fiery crimson shade was an integral part of their wedding looks. Bridal fashion designers like Falguni and Shane Peacock too included red in their bridal colour palette.
9. Deepika Padukone Went Back To Black
Whether in athleisure at the airport or on the red carpet, Deepika Padukone often reverts to black. While she did exactly that at the start of 2020, she changed things up with her makeup. Her messy cropped long bob hairstyle and bronze makeup was a far cry from her usual dark lips and sleek buns and we couldn't be happier about it.
10. Bollywood Got Its Own Celebrity Wives TV Show
The Indian TV and film industry finally got its very own reality TV show centred on celebrity wives of Bollywood actors and personalities Seema Khan, Neelam Kothari, Bhavana Pandey and Maheep Kapoor. Modeled on the likes of Keeping Up With The Kardashians and Real Housewives, with Fabulous Lives Of Bollywood Wives it's safe to say that now the stars of the show might be more popular than their celebrity husbands.
11. Face Masks Got Designer Upgrades
While face masks were solely for sanitary purposes at the start of the year, by the latter half of 2020, it got various premium touches. Designers like Karleo and Payal Singhal designed sequin and lace trimmed face masks which are a top choice by the swish set of fashion lovers who've got a new designer accessory to add to their closet.
12. Ranveer Singh Wore A Pearl Necklace
Ranveer Singh possibly learned a thing or two from Harry Styles' jewellery game and wore a string of pearls of his own paired with a t-shirt and snapback cap. Controvery ensued about gender normative dressing in the masculine context. We think no one else could slay the elegance of pearls with a sporty cap like Ranveer can.
