Karwa Chauth is one of the most awaited Indian festivals for most married women in Hindu culture. This year the festival will be celebrated on November 4. On this day women fast as prayer for the long lives of their husbands, and in different states different traditions are followed. The women don’t consume even a drop of water after sunrise and only break their fast after they see the moon through a seive, usually. Other than the fasting, another common element across states is dressing up. On this day women dress in traditional Indian attire like lehenga, saree, etc., they get henna drawn on their hands and dress up in full make-up, jewellery and decorate their ‘maang’ with bright red sindhoor. And if you are also going to fast for Karwa Chauth and are out of outfit, hair, make-up and accessory ideas, here’s a guide to some of the best Karwa Chauth looks that can be inspired from the gorgeous outfits donned by these Bollywood beauties including Deepika Padukone, Sara Ali Khan, Alia Bhatt, Kangana Ranaut, Vidya Balan, to name a few.
