Bollywood actor Aamir Khan is a very busy man these days. But that doesn’t mean he doesn’t make time for family and friends, especially on special occasions like the Indian festival of lights. With his much-anticipated Dhoom 3 just days away from release, he hosted a huge Diwali bash at his Bandra residence in Mumbai, India on November 3, 2013.

He threw a party for Diwali last year too and this year’s guest list was just as full of celebrities. One of the more stunning ladies at the do was actress Anushka Sharma who stood out for her wardrobe choice.
Anushka went traditional for the party – a good idea on both the convention and fashion front. Her choice of attire though was hardly what you would call traditional. She wore a very colorful sari that boasted a myriad of colors, mainly lime green, bright pink and black with secondary splashes of yellow, silver, gold and grey.

The three primary colors were color blocked on the majority of the nine yards while the remaining shades made modern geometric patterns on the border. The color blocking effect teamed with the symmetry of the geometry came quite close to clashing but instead resulted in an interesting visual that was light, youthful and contemporary.
Her yellow blouse was a thing of beauty. It had a backless cutout tied up with neon orange which was simply too sexy.

It’s a bold outfit, to say the least, and not the easiest to pull off. But we applaud her courage to experiment and think she’s done quite nicely with it.

She balanced out the contemporary vibe of her ensemble with ethnic makeup – dark eyes which were both kohled and heavily mascarraed, pink lips and a tiny black bindi. Her hair fashioned into a romantic chignon completed the look.
