The dream girl of Bollywood, Hema Malini was hailed as the most popular actress of her time. Not just for her beautiful Indian features, but her iconic bubbly and sassy style, which won hearts all over the country and beyond. On the occasion of her 70th birthday, we bring you some of the actor’s dreamy looks that have bowled us over.
Resplendent in an orange-pink hued sari, Hema Malini is a picture of grace. We love the broad borders and the embroidered pallu of the sari that the actor chose to wear loosely. Rounding off her look with an elegant kundan necklace in maroon, the actor looks spectacular. See here:
Clad in a vibrant pink and white sari, Hema Malini looks lovely. With a broad magenta border and accompanying silver embroidery, we love the way the actor teamed it with a sheer-satin matching magenta blouse. The colours come together to bring both pop and elegance. An antique gold necklace complements the outfit and we love her taste. See here:
Known for her cheeky and sassy roles, the actor look cute in this yoga pose for Subodh Mukherji’s Abhinetri. In an all-black ensemble with contrasting white stripes around the arms and neck, the actor takes us back to the 1980s. We love her signature winged eyeliner and freshly scrubbed face, the actor is cute. See here:
Also hailed for her dancing skills, Hema Malini is a trained Bharatnatyam and Kathak dancer. One of our favourite photos of her dancing is one in which she’s decked in jewels. We love the dark and dramatic eyes with her signature winged eyeliner. See here:
Hema Malini and Dharmendra’s romance is heart-warming and we love their cute candid from the movie Jugnu, where the actor sported a big black hat with cascading curls, which added attractiveness to the entire look.
Playing the village belle in the movie Sapno ka Saudagar, Hema Malini looks like a diva in a lehenga choli with her hair parted on one side.
Starring opposite Dev Anand in Shareef Badmaash, the actor bowled us over with her classically gorgeous looks. A master when it comes to draping saris, the actor teamed her embellished sari with a sleeveless blouse and jewel-studded necklace and earrings.
You can’t think of retro looks, without thinking of the dream girl. Her bow tie with a pantsuit – tight curls framing her face – is another of our favourite looks. Kohl-rimmed eyes and full lips round out her look nicely.
Though her style statement has changed over the years, she rarely fails to disappoint us. Clad in a shell-pink sari with extravagant silver embellishments, the actor is stunning and we love the diamond pendant nesting on her chest which adds elegance to her ensemble.
Simple yet chic, Hema Malini hardly ever fails to enthral us and we love the actor’s floral print sari, which is an eye-catcher. The deep yellow sari paired with a pink blouse make a good contrast and we love the sophistication of her attire.
