From a Television sweetheart to be an International star, the super talented Sajal Aly has come a long way – both in career and in fashion choices. Her fashion sense has evolved with time – transforming her girl-next-door image into a drop-dead gorgeous diva.

The actress turned heads as she walked on the red carpet in a boho-inspired outfit having a perfect mix of Eastern and Western cultures.

The Alif actress looked breathtaking in black frilled gharara pants beautifully paired with a crop top and blazer. Along the outfit, she opted for minimalist make-up with black kohl eyes, and a bold red lip colour adding the required oomph factor to her persona.
