She is a stunner! She is the unconquered queen of Bollywood! Yes! none other than the Mastani to Bajirao and the Shanti to Om, Deepika Padukone. Calling her a fashion trendsetter wouldn’t be an exaggeration. Apart from her excellent acting skills, she is also known for her impeccable taste in latest fashion trends. Her fashion styles speak volumes about her magnetic personality. She makes a lethal combination of beauty and talent.
When she first burst onto the scene in 2007 with Om Shanti Om, model turned actress Deepika Padukone’s style stayed true to the widely-accepted Bollywood actress stereotype look – embellished Indian wear, strong highlights in her hair and dark make-up. It was in 2011, that the star really came into her own and started picking silhouettes and edgy fashion trends that suited her model good looks and poise.
But Padukone’s biggest year so far has got to have been 2013, which she spent shooting for and promoting four films without a hair (or red carpet look) out of place. The star has been spotted in everything from an Alexander McQueen gown to a Shehla Khan lehenga, Sonaakshi Raaj saree gown and that barely-there Gaurav Gupta gown.
Three years later, the tables haven’t turned much. Now Padukone doesn’t just have a killer body, she’s got an equally deadly wardrobe full of hot fashion trends to show it off.
