In an industry chock-full with young celebrities constantly striving to garner the spotlight, Ananya Panday has proven time and again that she’s a fashion girl, and quite effortlessly at that. The actor has showcased range not just on the big screen but also through her proclivity for natural diamonds. Whether she’s acing her layering game with the perfect combination of dainty diamond necklaces or making a pair of contemporary diamond earrings the focal point of her ensemble, she always does it in style. From traditional choices to fine jewellery with a modern edge, here are eight prominent ways you can exude main character energy with diamonds, just like Ananya.
Ananya has an inherent fondness for silhouettes and styles that are intrinsically feminine. To mirror the heavily embellished bodice of her tiered dress, the actor layers a radiant-cut natural diamond tennis choker and a fancy shaped solitaire choker by Diamantina Fine Jewels offset with a gentle pear shape diamond pendant. Classic solitaire studs adorn her ears, perfectly balancing out the drama of her high-low tulle gown. This red-carpet worthy ensemble is an ideal example in showcasing how delicate pieces can create high impact.
At the Filmfare OTT awards last year, Panday chose to pay homage to classic Hollywood glamour. Her floor sweeping gown was accessorised with a stunning rose & full cut contemporary diamond bracelet by Diamantina Fine Jewels. With side swept hair and a sweetheart silhouette, the neck was left bare, drawing attention to her ears that were studded with several intricate natural diamond ear cuffs in rose gold. Through an outfit that packs a punch, Panday proves that a classic silhouette can be taken to new heights with modern jewels.
The Roaring 20s
To celebrate Karan Johar’s birthday, Ananya picked an outfit appropriate to celebrate an evening of bling. With hints of showgirl and Burlesque, the high-neck gown was accentuated with a matching pair of diamond-studded cuffs by Diamantina Fine Jewels and finished with stud earrings laced with dancing diamonds by designer Renu Oberoi. Following the motto of “Go big or Go home”, Panday dripping in diamonds was a sight to remember.
Dazzling Diwali Look
A much-awaited occasion that beckons intimate gatherings with near and dear ones, being creative when it comes to dressing for Diwali every year can be challenging, but Ananya shows you how to conquer the festive season. The actor was bedecked in a scintillating uncut diamond necklace featuring tiny pearls that was further complemented by diamond polki bangles and minimal studs all by heritage brand Amrapali Jewels. Her choice of jewellery perfectly complemented her trend-forward bralete and wide-legged pants combination. If you’re a traditionalist at heart, here’s how heirloom diamond jewellery can serve you in the present and the future.
All White Everything
Never underestimate the power of a timeless pair of diamond hoops. Keeping it casual in an all white uniform of a textured shirt by resort wear designers Shivan & Narresh, paired with a classic denim skirt and knee high boots, Panday emanates low-key sophistication. The diamond hoops by Gehna Jewellers are no-brainer investment pieces and can embellish the simplest of outfits, take notes.
Beyond The Nine Yards
Ananya shines with a sari moment while sporting a classic cluster of an uncut diamond necklace paired with exquisite uncut bangles by Manish Malhotra. Channelling retro Bollywood through wispy hair and glam makeup, she highlights the versatility of an uncut diamond necklace that delivers in stellar fashion for traditional and western outfits.
Wedding Season Look
For a family wedding in Udaipur, Panday proved yet again that she’s an expert when it comes to amalgamating modern with traditional. Exuding a girl-next-door charm, her lightly braided hair was accessorised with a statement natural diamond encrusted maang tikka featuring floating pear shaped diamonds by Anmol Jewellers, the only piece of jewellery she wore, and one that delivered. In line with the celebratory spirit, she wore a heavily embroidered strappy kurta and sharara set in a zesty hue of lime green and burnished gold.
Clutch Thy Pearls
We’ve established that through her personal style Panday loves hitting that sweet spot between timeless and trendy. Her choice of ensemble for the IIFA 2022 green carpet in Abu Dhabi was an understated yet dazzling sequined sari by Manish Malhotra embellished with intricate Chikankari work. To compliment this all white look she chose a pair of sparkling diamond dangling earrings with pearl drops – sealing the deal on the all-white theme.
