Some sparkling outfit ideas, right here!

Sequins hold an ultra glamorous place in Bollywood imagery.

Think Helen's itsy-bitsy Monica O My Darling number in Caravan, Parveen Babi's Jawani Janeman jumpsuit in Namak Halal, Rishi Kapoor's Om Shanti Om gig costume in Karz or Madhuri Dixit's glittery Ek Do Teen dance in Tezaab.

But if you thought they are only good for fancy-schmancy dance numbers, think again.

Wish to wear sequins off screen?

Sukanya Verma digs up some sparkling Bollywood tips for you.
