Yes, saris are the quintessentially Indian way of dressing for bada-bada occasions.

But a gown is the red carpet's blue-eyed child. And sometimes, rarely -- dare we say it -- a little more oomphy and less conventional than a sari.

A gown is about inspirational dressing, secret urges -- pretending to be Hollywood-ish/Met Gala-esque, something one longs to do if one had the courage. You know, once in your life believing you are The Supernova.

The beautiful folks at Bollywood are gown savvy. They know what to choose. And more crucially how to pull off a gown-wearing moment. Yup, their cooler-than-thou attitude in their one-off lavish, flamboyant pieces is a great energy to copy.

Because you too can bring out your most fabulous selves in custom gowns, no matter where you're headed. So become the superstar for a day, gals.

Presenting some of the hatke gowns we spotted in April to goad you ladies on.

Ananya Panday's gown is made of all the most charming fal-lal and froufrou in The Great Big Fashion Book.
The explosion of tulle in a most enticing hue.
A silvery off-the-shoulder bustier with a thousand sequins.
An asymmetrical hemline spread in rich folds on either side of her.
The delicate sparkle at the neck.
And those Cinderella shoes for a Prince Charming to find their live location on Google Maps.

IMAGE: Gulp! We've run out of glamzy enough words for Shamita Shetty and her startling, dumbfounding popping-out-of-the-phool attire.
But like all things Shamita, over the top is always roz ka mamla.
Nothing unusual for her to be stepping out in a sumptuous satiny mustard figure-hugging gown with, incidentally, a gigantic flower sprouting from her shoulder.
