Old is gold, and who knows this better than fashion industry where fashion designers invariably bring back popular styles and designs of yesteryear every few years with a sprinkle of their own spice. This is now also the case in Bollywood, where divas are showing all their love for retro Hollywood fashion. The recent events held in Tinsel Town have seen actresses and celebs donning dresses styled after fashion that was in & hot a few decades ago. Elbow length sleeves, modest knee or ankle length skirts, belted waists, laces and sheer fabrics lending modesty to cleavages, demure necklines taking modesty up one more level, bold whimsical colors; yes, the 70s' are definitely back in the wardrobe choices of our beautiful ladies. BollyCurry takes a look at some of the recent retro comebacks donned by the stars.

Nargis Fakhri

This beautiful actress sported an all-black ensemble from a high neck sheer-laced Burberry top to the knee length flaring leather skirt from Zara at the launch event of Noble Faith. However, what made this retro-look appealing to the eyes was the broad leather belt with a gold buckle cinched at her waist. Very chic and very 70's indeed. The Rockstar actress rocked it.

Priyanka Chopra

Spotted at the promotional event for her latest flick Mary Kom, Priyanka was wearing a Rachel Gilbert knee length dress in a shade of icy blue. The whimsical translucent overlay in darker shades of blue, a very modest neckline alongside elbow length sleeves lent it a complete yesteryear look. The cinch at the waist gave an appearance of a slim belt in a very 70's fashion. Pairing up pure white pump heels with the pale shades of the dress was a wise move. The up hairdo was a cherry on the cake and PeeCee carried the retro look with prim elegance.

Malaika Arora Khan

We were again transported to 70's with Diane von Furstenberg dress that Malaika wore for a launch event. However, instead of bold colors, hers was glittering shade of gold. But with kaftan style sleeves, clever knot at the waist and a plunging slim V-neckline - the gown spoke for itself. A signature style which started in 70's, came back in 90's and is now again turning heads in 2014. Of course the fact that it was Mrs. Khan donning it, only added to its oomph factor.

Kangana Ranaut

Here is one actress who is always fashion forward, be it on screen or off screen. The Queen star appeared for the launch of Noble Faith in a Burberry rustic-red blouse with a deep sweetheart neckline, a sheer collared and buttoned up full sleeved lace top over it, which was paired with a form fitting calf length plain white skirt. Apart from style, the solid color contrast of the ensemble was very reminiscent of retro fashion. Even her classic geometrically correct white Dior bag was a testament to Hollywood style of 70's.

Nimrat Kaur

Beautiful Lunchbox actress Nimrat Kaur was seen in a Neeta Lulla design at the same movie's DVD launch. Not only did her blue dress confirm the cut and nuances of a retro style, it went a step ahead and was of a vibrant color that was a norm in 70's. Moreover, it sported an overall bold floral print, which was so intrinsic of that decade. The elegant hair do and the ruby red lip shade that the actress was wearing only added to her loveliness and the authenticity of the era of her getup.
