Actor Karisma Kapoor may have been away from the film scene for quite a while now but she surely hasn’t forgotten how to look stylish. The light-eyed beauty looked classy and elegant in a simple black pair of pants and a contrasting top at the launch of the Driver’s Day campaign in Mumbai. Here’s a breakdown of how you can mimic her look.
Karisma looks totally en vogue in a stylish braid with a side-parted, twisted puff on the front. She surely made quite an effort at that one and boy, are we glad. For a similar hairdo, backcomb the front of your hair and twist and tie with clips or bobby pins on the sides of your head. Now tie the rest of your in a low-lying braid..
When you have flawless skin like Karisma, there is not really a need for make-up but the actor looks fresh with the lightly blushed cheeks and kohl-rimmed eyes. Try out Rimmel’s Volume Flash mascara to enhance those lashes along with Rimmel’s Scandal Eyes Waterproof eye pencil for perfectly defined eyes. Apply MAC’s Prolong wear powder blush in Whole Lotta Love shade for such shiny pink cheeks and MAC’s Right Image Lip gloss for lips like hers.
Karisma tops our list of casual hot with this chic ensemble. The black lace and bead detailing on her nude bubble top by Cherie D adds the perfect touches to her overall simple yet uber-classy outfit. For a similar pair of cropped pants, check out Next (Rs3,500) or Debenhams (Rs4,000). A top like this can be found at Mango (Rs3,800) or if you are one of those creative minds, try hitting your local bazaars and get it stitched for half the price.
Accessories and shoes
While her overall look was bang on attractive, Karisma sported minimal accessories with a strappy black watch and a pair of diamond studs. We would have loved to see a couple of string bracelets or a statement clutch. Patent black peep-toes seem to have become the safest fashion option. A similar pair can be easily found at Charles and Keith (Rs4,000) or even your local shoe store for cheap.
