The auspicious festival of Navratri is about to end but not without a bang. The last day of the festival falls a day before Dusshera, so the festive spirit is still in the air. This nine-day long festival is celebrated to mark the victory of Goddess Durga against the mighty demon, Mahishasura. Each day has a certain colour assigned to it and on day nine, we have purple. After wearing yellow, green, grey, white, orange, red, royal blue and pink, you are expected to wear purple coloured outfits on day nine of this holy festival. Navratri 2021 Day 8 Colour Pink: Katrina Kaif, Jasmine Bhasin and Other Beauties Whose 'Pinkalicious' Avatars Had Our Hearts (View Pics).

Purple as a colour stands for royalty, Besides being extremely royal in nature, the colour also signifies wisdom, grandeur, dignity, creativity and independence. It's not a colour that you easily find in one's closet but thanks to our beloved celebs who have made it quite popular these days. From TV beauty, Hina Khan to star wife, Mira Rajput, ladies are swooning over this bright shade and their affinity towards it is only making us adore it even more. Kiara Advani Brings Diwali Early Looking Like a Patakha in Hot Red Lehenga Choli, View Pic.
