The widely celebrated festival of Diwali is known for bringing gifts, parties, food, celebratory wishes, and some fantastically colorful Instagram posts. Bollywood A-listers took to social media to share joyous Diwali greetings and of course, we were delighted to see every snippet of their traditional Diwali outfits.
Former Harper's BAZAAR Arabia cover star, Priyanka Chopra celebrated her very first Diwali as Mrs. Jonas in Cabo. The striking actress wore an embellished gold sari as she posed with hubby Nick in a post she captioned "Happy Diwali to everyone celebrating. From mine to yours...". From Jacqueline Fernandes' incredible outfit to Anushka Sharma's newlywed moment, BAZAAR has compiled our favorite moments from Diwali 2019.
Diwali celebrations weren’t just limited to India. The celebrations were evident in the UAE as well, with a multitude of Diwali events taking place aross the 7 Emirates. The absolute highlight though? A heartfelt greeting by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai on Diwali.
To all who are celebrating Diwali, let me wish them, on behalf of the people and residents of UAE, a truly joyful festival.
May the light from the festivities around the world shine a blessing of love and hope on us all.— HH Sheikh Mohammed (@HHShkMohd) October 24, 2019
