Get the look: Funk it up

Bollywood actor-model-VJ Nauheed Cyrusi (remember her from Piya Basanti Re?) looked effortlessly chic in a crayon blue skirt with a black, one-shoulder vest at a party hosted for American rapper Snoop Dogg, who has rechristened himself Snoop Lion.

To get Nauheed’s look, follow these guidelines:


The 30-year-old VJ left her shoulder-length, chocolate brown tresses hanging freely over her shoulders. To get a similar look, blow dry your hair, part it from the middle and throw it over your shoulder. Really simple!



She sported the barely-there make-up look with lightly kohled eyes, a soft pink highlighter accentuating the frame of her lovely face and nude lips. Her red nails added all the more oomph to her overall look. Go for Hashmi kohl (Rs150), Rimmel blush in Pink Rose (Rs550), Mac Lustre Lipstick (Rs1,700) and OPI Color So Hot It Berns (Rs300) for matching nail colour.



She accessorised with a pair of earrings, a thin silver bracelet, broad brown belt and a silver round clutch. For similar stuff, check out local stores, Accessorize or Saffron. You can grab a similar waist belt at Mango (for Rs1,200) and a clutch at Debenhams (for Rs3,000).



Nauheed was seen wearing a plain, black figure-hugging, one-shoulder vest over a long skirt. This black and blue combo paired with red nails and neutral make-up won her full 10 on our style-o-metre. Plain black tank tops are essentials in any wardrobe and can be found at Mango (Rs1,500) or Fiction (Rs500). However, for a skirt like this check out stores like Mantra, Mango, Debenhams or Zainab Market.



She opted for silver strappy sandals. Look for a similar pair at Marie Claire, Vincci or Charles and Keith (Rs2,000 to Rs4,000).
