The primary influence on Indian fashion trends is the latest Bollywood fashion that hits the screen. The moment an actor is spotted with a certain kind of outfit on or off screen, people clamour to get the exact same look for themselves. Given this trend, it is not surprising that celeb spotting elicits so much interest among the fashion conscious. So we too decided to feature our favourite looks from Bollywood ladies and the celebrity we chose this week is none other than Deepika Padukone.
Deepika Padukone started off as a model and in record time skyrocketed to become the reigning queen of Bollywood with back to back hits. The leggy lass from south India has not just established herself as a fashion icon, but has also been instrumental in defining the latest Bollywood fashion. Whether it is going the traditional way in Ram-Leela or the girl next door look in Yeh Jawani Hai Diwani or that of a classy working woman look in Piku, she has pulled off a myriad range of looks with élan.
Deepika Padukone is one actress whose off-screen appearances also are in keeping with the latest Bollywood fashion. You can find her in high street and hot couture brands at public appearances and award ceremonies. Her USP is that she comfortable in her skin and puts her best foot forward every single time. She does not just go in with established designers but also experiments with clothes from the new breed of designers. Here is a look at some of our favourite looks from Deepika Padukone.
Deepika has always pushed the envelope when it comes to the red carpet and it was no different when she arrived at HT’s Mumbai’s Most Stylish awards in a white Monisha Jaising cut out gown. We’re not complaining about the peek-a-boo gown, given that cut-outs are the latest Bollywood fashion trend. Paired with red lips and a messy updo she looked drop dead gorgeous! We love this look of hers!
Ever an epitome of poise and elegance, we think that Deepika looks splendid in a saree and this look of hers at the IIFA green carpet is something that is etched in our memory. Whatever the latest Bollywood fashion is, the saree never loses its appeal on the red carpet and this appearance proves exactly that. Clad in a shimmering Sabyasachi saree, with scarlet lips and chandelier earrings, Deepika looked every bit the diva that she is!
Deepika has always maintained that while her daily style is simple and comfortable, she loves to go that extra mile when it comes to dressing up for the red carpet. The Filmfare awards last year bore testimony to that. Her risqué Gaurav Gupta gown made sure that it set the pulses racing on the red carpet. She made the look work for her with side swept hair and red lips.
Got any other look of Deepika’s that you think should have made it to this list? If you’d like us to feature some other celebrity and her latest Bollywood fashion, do let us know!
