Whether old or young, Bollywood actresses have started experimenting with what they want to wear, and are stepping out confidently with their own, unique sense of style. Best part – they all are different yet stylish in their own ways. On the occasion of International Women’s Day, we bring you the seven Bollywood actresses who have carved their own niche in the world of fashion.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan
Former Miss World and one of India’s most beautiful women, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was the first Indian woman who put Indian fashion on the global map. From representing India at Festival de Cannes, dressed in the choicest of gowns to setting the silver screen on fire with one after other moving performances, Aishwarya has come a long way and continues to slay. But her biggest contribution has been drawing attention to Indian faces and ensembles with her stylish international appearances. When Aishwarya embraced motherhood, she chose to dress differently and beautifully embraced her bodily changes – that made her a global icon.
Clearly, the harbinger of international fashion in India, Sonam Kapoor is the true fashionista of Bollywood. There is not an international designer Sonam has not worked with and with her stylist sister, Rhea Kapoor in tow, Sonam can be credited with popularising international fashion trends in India. From palazzo sari to denim sari – Sonam has set trends we could never think of!
The golden girl of Bollywood, Rekha made wearing saris fashionable. While actresses moved on to wearing dresses on red carpets, Rekha continued to slay in her rich golden kanjeevaram silk saris. Rekha bleeds elegance in saris and accessorises her silk sarees with golden jewellery and big round bindis.
A Bollywood actress who always speaks her mind, Kangana’s fashion sense is also exclusive and unique like her personality. From dressing in the most expensive branded clothes to wearing pyjamas to the airport, Kangana has done it all. Her newfound love is saris and we love how easy-breezy she makes them look. Since the time she started wearing the nine-yard wonder, saris have all of a sudden become the cool thing to wear to the airport.
She’s undoubtedly India’s greatest export to United States of America. One of Bollywood’s most loved actresses and now an American sensation, Priyanka Chopra has come a long way when it comes to reshaping her career and we are proud of what all she has achieved. But, we also need to talk about her style evolution which has been an amazing journey.
From doing the princess act on stage in a pretty gown at the Miss World competition back in Miss World 2000 to being the true fashionista walking through the famous streets of America, PeeCee has her fashion game absolutely on point. She creates buzz with every appearance she makes.
She’s the mother of one of India’s most famous designers, Masaba Gupta and we are pretty sure Masaba got it from her stylish mumma! At 59, Neena Gupta is not only doing the best roles in Indian cinema, but she’s also setting some serious fashion goals. She has one of the most enviable wardrobes in b-town and lots of cues of how to look 40 when you are heading to 60!
Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor is known for her sartorial choices. Be it her red carpet appearances or her casual outings, it’s hard to miss Kareena’s look. While she surely has one of the most glam teams in the industry to deck her up, we’re also a fan of her personal style because she is living every girl’s fashion dream. If there’s someone who has made fashion most wearable – it’s Kareena. From her gym wear to her airport looks, each outfit is something a girl next door would want to pick up.
