Mindy Kaling hosted a Phenomenal x Live Tinted Diwali Dinner, calling all the phenomenal Indian-origin creators and actresses to celebrate this auspicious festival. Everyone looked dazzling, from Liza Koshy and Richa Moorjani wearing Papa Don’t Preach to Poorna Jagannathan wearing Anita Dongre. Mindy Kaling wore an exquisite deep purple Falguni Shane Peacock lehenga. It was amazing to see such remarkable women representing equally noteworthy Indian designers at an event of such calibre! As the festive season continued, Mindy Kaling looked breathtaking in a yellow ensemble from Papa Don’t Preach. Safe to say, she was radiating a glow in both her looks for Diwali!

Chrissy Teigen

Who said only Indians could dress up lavishly for the festival of lights? Chrissy Teigen was spotted wearing Papa Don’t Preach by Shubmika. Like Mrunal Thakur, she too wore two outfits, both sarees from Papa Don’t Preach. Her first saree was a purple embellished saree that the celebrity author pulled off flawlessly. Paired with a matching blouse and bright pink bag, John Legend accompanied her to the Diwali bash thrown by Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas. Her second saree consisted of a net embroider and slit with tones of coral and lilac. Chrissy Teigen did justice to both the sarees, no doubt!

Priyanka Chopra had several celebrations throughout the festival of Diwali. Enrobed in several outfits, her outfit for the Phenomenal x Livetinted Diwali Dinner hosted by Mindy Kaling was a standout. She represented designer Arpita Mehta splendidly, wearing their sand floral tiered print skirt and floral mirror blouse. This light skirt and beautiful blouse were paired with a gorgeous necklace, making her look enchanting. Another outfit that was loved by all, especially her hubby Nick Jonas, for Lilly Singh’s Diwali party was her matching floral set from Sabyasachi.
