Through the years, these fashion queens - Deepika Padukone, Priyanka Chopra and Sonam Kapoor - have wowed us with their sartorial splendor both on and off screen. Today, our actresses and designers are well versed with all kinds of trends from all around the world, let alone India.
Designers like Manish Malhotra, Sabyasachi Mukherjee, Anaita Shroff Adajania and many others take the centre stage and portray their designs and looks through films and star-studded Bollywood events. There is no denying the fact that they make Bollywood stars look exquisite and make us drool upon a plethora of their remarkable designs.
Doing complete justice to the work of our designers and also famous international designers, some Bollywood actresses stand out and define the fashion industry today. These divas have set in motion trends and styles that are followed religiously by Indian women.
Her elegance, her beauty, her grace and not to mention her brilliant acting skills have made Deepika the ultimate queen of Bollywood. Her fashion sensibility never fails to flatter us. On screen, her looks in movies like Cocktail, Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani and Tamasha took the fashion industry by a storm. And it's not just Bollywood, she has worked her magic in Hollywood as well with her recent debut in xXx. Time and again, she has proved she can pull off anything from casual summery dresses to superlative gowns and lehengas.
Some of her best looks include a Monique Lhuillier Fall 2017 number she wore at the 89th Academy Awards after party. She looked no less than a stunner in that beautiful black and gold gown. To complete the look she wore smoky eyes and nude lipstick, keeping it simple and yet fashionable.
If you haven't already started wearing the denim dresses or if you still have any doubts about how flattering they can look, Deepika is here to inspire. She was spotted wearing a short one-sided cold shoulder Denim dress at an event in 2016. To funk things up, she teamed it up with a pair of colourful Dolce & Gabbana peep-toe heels. It was indeed perfectly chic and classy!
Manish Malhotra's royal red lehenga at the India Couture Week 2016 made Deepika look like a dream. His designs were inspired by Persian architecture and the valiant royals that ruled their kingdoms. Deepika was the show stopper and she definitely made heavens smile as she walked down the ramp.
She has also recently launched her own fashion brand for women called ‘All About You’. It is a line of comfortable and trendy clothing that will surely make your summers ‘cooler’ and are available on various online shopping platforms.
Miss World 2000, an incredible actress, India's first legit international superstar and a singing sensation! Truly, nothing is impossible for this talented young lady. She has achieved unfathomable heights of global success and stardom. Priyanka Chopra has made our heart throb with her charisma, intellect and her bold and beautiful fashion sense. Her looks in the film Fashion are still appreciated and admired. In the movie, she wore 137 outfits and looked 137 sorts of stunning!
This year at the Oscars, the Quantico star was slaying it in her white Ralph and Russo column gown. This gown was an ideal combination of bold and bling and its structured bodice highlighted PC's perfectly toned body. Her confidence and her grace along with this flamboyant gown definitely made heads turn at the event.
At the 2016 TIME 100 Gala, Priyanka stood out in her sleek white suit with a black box clutch and heels. She completed the look with a Y necklace that added the ‘chic' element to her very sophisticated attire. Who says only a dress can make you look sexy? Priyanka Chopra killed it in her suit and looked uber hot in it.
And white is not the only colour in which she made us go gaga. At the 2016 Emmy Awards, our beloved international superstar looked jaw-droopingly gorgeous in a red Jason Wu gown. It was a red, one-shoulder scarlet gown and Priyanka looked like a vision of beauty in it. She definitely thrilled her fans with this look.
Sonam Kapoor has earned the title of ‘Bollywood's Fashionista’ and she, undoubtedly, has lived up to it every single time. She is looked upon by the youth as a fashion icon for all the right reasons. The most iconic movie in terms of fashion that she delivered was ‘Aisha'. It is one of the most stylish characters that anybody has ever played in Bollywood and it is also known to be one of the first fashion films of India. Every outfit in the film has been carried off with great panache by Sonam.
Her look at the Cannes Festival 2016 consisted of an all-white, cold shoulder, Ralph and Russo couture gown. The train that trailed behind was heavily embroidered and looked spectacular. To top it all, the diva wore a white choker and completely dominated the red carpet with her look.
At the Indian Films festival of Melbourne, Sonam Kapoor won an award for her exceptional performance in her recent film Neerja. The fashionista graced the occasion in Anamika Khanna's couture matching grey coloured pant and vest separates, an extended duster coat and finished the look with a bold red lipstick and a bulky necklace. The fish scale style of the outfit made it look eccentric and contemporary. Sonam Kapoor looked resplendent in it. She pulled it off like a true diva.
Sonam broke the internet recently for a ‘Fashion-tastic’ reason! She sported Masaba Gupta's ‘denim -pant- saree which was wholly fabricated from recycled jeans. This genius creation includes a crop top, pleated pants and a pallu, all made of denim. She accessorized it with a tan-hued belt and loafers and did a phenomenal job pulling off this edgy outfit. Masaba Gupta could not have chosen a better actress to flaunt this saucy new saree.
These Bollywood divas along with several others have helped place India on the fashion world map and made us all proud. They truly reign our film industry with their fashion sensibilities and have set some ever- green trends. They sure do top the list of most glamorous celebrities in Bollywood, however, the young guns like Alia Bhatt, Parineeti Chopra, and Shraddha Kapoor have also come a long way and are not far behind.
They have rightly followed the footsteps of their counterparts and are now fashion icons to the young women of India. We hope these impeccable B-Town queens continue to inspire us and keep Bollywood fashion friendly forever.
