Katrina Kaif And Kiara Advani Gave Us The Two Kinds Of Date Night Pink Dresses And We Love ‘Em Both
I have always been one of those girls who would stand in front of her closet and sigh “I have nothing to wear”, literally every single morning. Even though I have a well-stocked wardrobe of essentials and fun pieces alike, I am always pressed for choices when it comes to being undeniably feminine and girly. For someone who lived in band T-shirts all throughout college, imagine my level of anxiety when I have to pick out an outfit for a first date. Usually, I like to uphold my casual vibe, but sometimes it is fun to go all out in ladylike colours and silhouettes. The only problem is, I can never tell when it is “too much”!
As I mentioned, I have always been fascinated with hyper-feminine clothes. I look to celebrities and fashion stars for pointers on how to do it just right. And only sometimes, I manage to strike gold with my incessant Insta-stalking. One of these rare moments occurred just today when I spotted Kiara Advani in a ruched bubblegum pink dress, that reminded me another star in a similar shade looking like a total stunner. I would replace my many LBDs with a pretty pink dress any day, and in one of these two forms:
Katrina Kaif’s sexy plain bodycon style…
….or Kiara Advani’s very cute and girly ruched number. I don’t wish to spoil myself with too many options!
The reason these adorable dresses struck my fancy has a lot to do with my obsession with 80s high school rom-com movies, one of which is the dangerously underrated feminist classic Pretty In Pink. In it, we have a strong 18-year old female lead, coming-of-age as an even stronger woman, all the while wearing gorgeous pink outfits that she sews herself. The use of fashion in this film, to show the colour pink in a very non-stereotypical way, has always struck me as imaginative and unique. I mean, you can be a rock n’ roll lover and still love ruffled pink dresses, there are no rules. It also helps when we consider how this girly shade has been adopted in a power dressing staple like the pantsuit and become a legit celeb favourite for the party season.
