Aishwarya Rai Bachchan never fails to make an impression. Whether she’s walking down red carpets in showstopper outfits, going out to dinner with family and friends, or heading out of town, the celebrated beauty is always dressed to the nines, and more often than not, in black. Take a closer look at her sartorial go-tos, and you’ll notice how black is Mrs Bachchan’s happy colour. Japanese fashion designer Yohji Yamamoto’s discourse on the hue can easily explain Rai Bachchan’s preference for it. He said, “Black is modest and arrogant at the same time. Black is lazy and easy—but mysterious. But above all black says this: ‘I don’t bother you—don’t bother me.’” Neatly fits the bill for the lady in question.
A fail-safe red carpet pick, it’s a colour that has always served the actor well at gala affairs. For instance, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan recently paired a strapless Gauri & Nainika gown with her signature soft curls and a bold pout—a combination that never gets tiresome on her—for a Longines event. She has also mastered the art of extending the cocktail glam vibe associated with black to her traditional wardrobe. Cases in point: the Shahab Durazi lace panel sari, and the Anamika Khanna anarkali she’s been spotted in.
While the actor’s style tethers more in the classic territory, she is always game for giving the LBD an of-the-moment spin. Her Nedret Taciroğlu lace off-shoulder dress, or even her look in Bibhu Mohapatra’s cold shoulder version , shows us how to use this closet MVP to enhance a svelte frame, and keep up with the times without trying too hard.
When in the mood to unleash your inner drama queen, channel Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s look in Andrew Gn separates , with exaggerated sleeves and a fringed hemline. Black and airport looks ? A match made in heaven, if the actor’s repertoire is anything to go by. Keep changing it up with trouser and blazer combinations, sweatshirts or trench coats in the solid shade.
That’s the thing about black—it will mould itself to any occasion, sensibility or mood on your mind. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and her all-black ensembles have proved this time and again over the years.
