Sameera, Deepika, Mallika: Bollywood's new skin show

Along with flamboyant colours, a wide range of silhouettes and quirky designs, Bollywood's fashion trends are sometimes as curious as its movies.

The Herve Leger bodycon fever, which lasted for quite a while, had every actress worth her salt scamper for her favoured version of the bandage dress, unabashedly unmindful of how it sat on their bodies (in some cases) or whether they had the body to carry it off.

The bodycon dress's successor is the sheer detail in gowns, cocktail dress and sari blouses. Take a look!

Sameera Reddy

The actress, one of the many Bollywood patrons of designer duo Falguni and Shane Peacock, donned this outfit as they kicked off the latest edition of the annual Blender's Pride tour a few days ago.
