Aishwarya Rai Bachchan – Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla
Be it at Cannes or the IIFA – Mrs. Bacchan’s wardrobe has always come under the microscope by fashion critics the world over. This international beauty icon wears Indian and Western ensembles with great ease and can always been seen in colorful traditional Indian attire at both ceremonies in the industry and at her family affairs. She’s a Jani-Khosla loyalist – wherever she goes, she makes sure her dresses have been created by this brilliant designer. It also helps that the designer duo is a close friend of the entire Bachchan family.
Sonakshi Sinha – Anita Dongre
Anita Dongre is the queen of Indian wear, which is also incidentally something in which Sonakshi looks best. Be it a saree, a kurti or an anarkali suit – Miss Sinha sizzles in whatever Dongre attires she rocks. It’s quite evident that the two are comfortable with each other’s presence and that is reflected well in Sonakshi’s ensembles and attitude.
Deepika Padukone – Sabyasachi Mukherjee
Miss Padukone sure has her own unique style and when it comes to Western wear, the actress scours through various labels, both national and international. But when it comes to Indian wear, Sabyasachi Mukherjee is the only designer she truly places her trust in. The designer’s exquisite ensembles enhance the leggy lass’s curves, making her look breathtaking in Indian wear.
Kareena Kapoor – Manish Malhotra
Now Kareena is someone who ranks quite low on the list of actresses willing to experiment. She’s stuck to Manish Malhotra’s designs from the very first day she set foot in the Indian film industry.

Sonam Kapoor – Anamika Khanna
Everybody accepts the fact that Sonam Kapoor is Bollywood’s uncrowned Queen of Style.

But Zara is the one brand she keeps going back to, especially because their team helps come Anushka come up with detailed style sheets to make her options as varied as possible.
