Epitomes of Style: Best Dressed Celebrities of Bollywood
14 th Oct 2015

Movie stars have always been revered like drop dead gorgeous Gods walking this earth by mere mortals who gasp every time their favourite screen icons make an appearance on screen or in pictures. This kind of crazed hero worship might seem a bit excessive to some but diehard fans of Bollywood celebrities have been known to erect temples for their favourite stars and worship them like deities. While some love their screen gods for their power packed performances, for most others it is all about the aura of the star and their image. In a land of such utter devotion to movie stars it is needless to say that when it comes to fashion Bollywood celebrities rule the roost in making and breaking trends. Their fans obsessively stalk each fashion statement from looks in movies to those worn at movie promotion events and the all important red carpet appearances for awards and film festivals.

While celebrities considered an entourage of hair and make up artists, fashion designers and stylists unnecessary in the past, it is a non-negotiable requirement for the stars of today. Smart phones and social media have made the world an increasingly visual place adding to the pressure on celebrities to get their looks on point for all public and not so public appearances. As television shows, newspaper articles and magazine columns dedicated to dissect celebrity looks are becoming ever popular it is not surprising that some stars emerge as fashion darlings while others are labelled fashion victims in serious need of a style overhaul.

We have compiled our own list of the best-dressed celebrities of Bollywood to serve as inspiration for your next barrage of Google searches in the hunt to look outstanding for your wedding, that big date, your annual holiday or even just the coming weekend. With so many stunning ladies in Bollywood the men usually get left out of nearly every best-dressed celebrities of Bollywood list. Our list also features men in an effort to bring some balance to these lists and to give these stylish gentlemen some much-needed credit.

1. Sonam Kapoor

A list of the best-dressed celebrities of Bollywood would be incomplete without a mention of Sonam Kapoor. Styled exclusively by sister Rhea Kapoor for major events, Sonam Kapoor knows fashion like the back of her hand. She may have declared herself an icon on an episode of Koffee with Karan and became the topic of hilarious memes and jokes but her contribution towards seriously stylish red carpet fashion cannot be denied. She experiments with international labels as well as homegrown brands with effortless ease while always keeping it ultra modern, sophisticated and chic. As a former larger girl she knows that being sexy is not about flashing skin but about being comfortable in it and this philosophy has served her well as she makes heads turn wherever she goes.

2. Deepika Padukone

The former model turned actress is a real life Cinderella story in terms of fashion. Deepika started out making disastrous wardrobe choices until fairy godmother Anaita Shroff Adajania sprinkled her magical styling dust on the leggy lass. Her transformation into a sultry vixen that oozes sex appeal secures her a spot as one of the best-dressed celebrities of Bollywood. With her killer body and height she works western and ethnic ensembles like a pro often making most women green with envy and most men weak in the knees. Deepika proves that flawless genetics and an immensely talented stylist can do wonders for ones image and career trajectory in Bollywood.

Even with her hectic schedule spanning across USA and India, she manages to look impeccably dressed and perfectly poised for every event. This best-dressed Bollywood celebrity is styled by Ami Patel who impresses upon celebrities the importance of letting their own personalities shine through their ensembles.
