While Bollywood Beauty Deepika Padukone is at the top of her game when it comes to cinema, this actress is surely the reigning queen in terms of fashion and style – getting it right each and every time. Be it a formal gown, a sari look, a chic dress of sexy shorts, Deepika is simply killing it – right down to her perfectly styled hair and flawless makeup. While there’s simply no faulting her appearances, we took a pick at some of our favourite looks.
While most actresses in the past shied away from donning the traditional nine yards on the international red carpet, Deepika brought back in the trend at the 63rd Cannes Film Festival in 2010, looking sensual and stunning in a Rohit Bal creation. That same year she a bright red Neeta Lulla sari for the premiere of her film, ‘Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey’.
Owing to her tall and slender frame, Deepika carries long kurits and anarkalis beautifully. During the promotions of film 'Chennai Express', last year, Deepika made several style statements in these traditional creations.
She donned a gorgeous cream Anamika Khanna creation with jewellery by Amrapali. Another favourite was a mustard coloured Pankaj & Nidhi sheer-sleeved creation, which was accentuated with the jhumpkas and bright lips.
When it comes to evening gowns, no one does it quite like she does. Deepika picked a stunning emerald green backless Gauri and Nainika gown with side ruffles from the waist down for the 18th Screen Awards. The 19th edition saw her in a beautiful lace Dolce & Gabbana gown.
The Bollywood beauty also proved time and again that she's not afraid to go risqué. She showed off her rocking hot bod in a sheer cutout black Prabal Gurung with a sleek ponytail and red lips. She once more experimented with the sheer risqué look in a gold Gaurav Gupta with side swept hair.
While most Bollywood divas prefer to keep away from colour, our girl wears it in style. She looked fun and yet kept it stylish in a black midi dress paired with a Quirk Box boyfriend jacket and a statement necklace for an award show.
Given her body type, there's no denying that this girl can even carry off a sack, however she has worn some lovely and chic jumpsuits for both formal and casual occasions. One look saw the actress in a bright orange strapless Alexander McQueen jumpsuit, while another saw her as the epitome of style in a chic white Céline jumpsuit with nude coloured peep toes.
Given that she has a beautifully toned body, Deepika is known to flaunt her mid-riff be it in ethnic lehengas or sexy crop tops. For her performance at the Screen Awards 2014, Deepika wore a gorgeous neon orange lehenga by Mayyur Girrotra with a nude sheer blouse featuring mirror work.
For another formal outing, Deepika was absolutely ravishing in a in a cropped Zara top with a matching pencil skirt and Louboutin stilettos.
Deepika also has a good eye for dresses and carries them off with élan – whether mini, midi or maxi. She went floral in a pretty lace Dolce & Gabbana dress with nude pumps. Deepika also went geek chic in a stylish red hot belted lace dress by Nidhi & Pankaj. And for her mini look, the actress flaunted her sexy legs in a black belted Halston Heritage dress with leopard print ballerinas. For the maxi look, we picked the gorgeous white maxi dress from Alice + Olivia which Deepika worked beautifully with her maroon lips and dark luscious tresses.
Even when it comes to dressing down, Deepika still manages to look amazing and makes heads turn. For a dance show in the city, the actress picked a black tank top, ripped denims and oxford shoes. While a film screening in the city saw her in a shiny crop top with skinny jeans and tan oxfords.
When the occasion demands it, Deepika can surely go glam as well. She shimmered and shone in a DvF maxi dress for an award show. She also looked gorgeous and majestic in a beautifully embroidered zardozi outfit as she walked the ramp for designer Manish Malhotra.
