If we have to name one Indian fashion designer who has the maximum vogue with Bollywood celebrities, it will have be Manish Malhotra. Celebrities flock to Manish Malhotra and they just love his designs. It is very rare to find a Bollywood beauty who has never worn Manish Malhotra lehengas.
Lehenga cholis are no longer considered too traditional for formal occasions. Just like sarees are worn for special red carpet occasions, lehenga cholis too are treated as proper formal Indian wear these days. And many leading ladies have walked down the red carpet wearing Manish Malhotra lehengas. The best thing about Manish Malhotra lehengas is that they are not overtly bridal. You can wear them even for a birthday party.
We have seen almost all celebrities in Manish Malhitra outfits at some point of time or other. This season, Ameesha Patel wore a Manish Malhotra lehenga to the Cannes 2013 red carpet. We also saw Madhuri Dixit in a lovely lime green lehenga choli from this designer's couture at IIFA 2013.
Here are some of the celebrities wearing the best of Manish Malhotra lehengas.
