Kangana Ranaut, who turns a year older on March 23 is not just a powerhouse of talent, but also boasts of a classy and elegant fashion sense. Just as much her career choices seem a reflection of her indomitable spirit, her fashion choices too — right from her formal dresses to the gorgeous six yards — are an extension of her fierce personality. On her birthday this year, we list some of her power-packed, futuristic and fierce looks.

The actor rocked an all-black grunge look ever so glamorously. She opted for a full-sleeved, high-neck top, which she styled with a matching mini skirt. But more than her little black outfit, it was the thigh-high boots from Tom Ford that we loved the most. The brown and black, leather boots gave her a fierce touch. The footwear could be really difficult to pull off, but not for Ranaut as she did it effortlessly. Also, the tinge of brown on the boots helped break the monotony of the all-black ensemble. One more noteworthy detail that we found in the actor's look was her thickly-lined eyes that added a lot of drama. A nude palette make-up with slight pink lips and curly locks pulled back in an updo balanced the edgy vibe with a bit of softness. (Source: Express Photo by Varinder Chawla)

Ranaut made a classic fashion statement at the airport in a crisp white pantsuit that she wore over a striped T-shirt on her way back from London. It seems the versatile actor has taken quite a liking to sporting a jacket-over-casual-tee look and is nailing it, every time. (Source: File Photo)

Her power-packed punch in an ERDEM X H&M floral print black pant suit has got us hooked. Styled by celebrity stylist Ami Patel, the actor looked stunning in the floral pantsuit that she teamed with a pair of blood red heels and rimmed Tom Ford glasses. She wore a Victorian necked blouse underneath the suit with a black pussy-bow lace around the neck. With hair styled by Sanjay Kumar Dohalia, Ranaut’s otherwise curly, wild mane was pulled into a bun. Her toned-down, dewy-fresh make-up with just a hint of rose on her lips balanced out the colour pop in her look that the red of her footwear gave. (Source: Instagram)

Ranaut was clad in a vibrant floral print pantsuit from Zara. She teamed the ensemble with an ice blue pussy-bow blouse from Gucci and we like how the subtle colour contrasted nicely with the extravagant rose prints on the suit. Another interesting element we love about her attire is the chic Gucci Dionysus handbag she was toting; especially the stylish defining tiger-head buckle and the roses embroidered with a three-dimensional effect. Clinging more to comfort than fashion, Ranaut chose to wear thick framed brown glasses, which we think looked a little out of place with her soigne attire. The actor wore her hair pulled back in a ponytail and black shoes and minimal make-up rounded out her look nicely. (Source: Express Photo by Varinder Chawla)

All decked out in Gucci pieces from her printed shirt in red to the soft brown pants, the actor kept it sleek and elegant. However, what really caught our attention was the fuzzy scarf she stylishly draped around her neck. Another Gucci piece with chic fur detailing, the scarf added an element of oomph to her attire. We like the suede loafers from Tod’s that she paired her outfit with, which blended in well with the overall tenor of her look. She kept her make-up minimal with just a nude lip and hair tied into her signature bun. Rounding off her look with a pastel coat, bag and black shades, Ranaut was every bit sophisticated and we absolutely love her airport look. (Source: Express Photo by Varinder Chawla)

She wowed us when she stepped out in a Bibhu Mohapatra piece, while attending an event in Sri Lanka. For the occasion, the Queen actor was decked in an ivory-grey off-shoulder top with slashes of brick red adding a pop of colour to the top. It was teamed with a vivid burgundy skirt, with oriental floral prints on it. Stylist Ami Patel teamed the outfit with a pair of matching burgundy shoes from Lanvin and kept the accessories to a bare minimum. Ranaut chose to complement her look with nude make-up, kohl-lined eyes and a quirky chignon. (Source: Instagram)

The actor made a grand appearance at the opening ceremony of the Jio MAMI 19th Mumbai Film festival red carpet and she stole the show with her impeccable style, wearing a risque dress from Ulyana Sergeenko’s spring-summer 2017 collection. The maroon and off-white ensemble is not easy to carry but she pulled it off with flair and panache. The off-shoulder dress was a fine combination of boldness and sophistication. The maroon velvet corset bodice, with deconstructed strap detail and the ruched sleeves, was the highlight of the look. The shine on the embellished off-white skirt was perfectly paired with Tom Ford’s metallic pumps. With zero accessories and matching dark lips and tresses styled in a faux bob, stylist Ami Patel did a fantastic job. (Source: Express Photo by Varinder Chawla)
