The Iconic Stylistas of Bollywood

Fashion in India is the trend that stars follow in Bollywood movies and their real lives. Indian’s do not need the Fashion channels; they are content with following their onscreen idols and aping their looks. Here’s a list of the seven most stylish people that Bollywood has ever had.

1. Rekha

She could be a fierce competition to the current divas in Bollywood. Years have passed by since Umrao Jaan released and Rekha still looks as gorgeous as she looked back then. Her sarees and jewellery become the talk of the media at any public event. Her appearance at the Rajya Sabha oath taking ceremony was no different. Her elegance remained unmatched even though she sported a simple saree and light jewellery. She is a stylista par excellence.

2. Rahul Khanna

You might have noticed him in movies like Dil Kabaddi where his looks were set to kill. He is the suave and dashing hero who does not need heroism to prove he is a man. His sense of style is impeccable and he carries off a suit and a t shirt with equal oomph. This guy could not make it much in Bollywood but has definitely left a mark among the most stylish men here.

3. Helen

She is Bollywood’s first item girl and perhaps the most glamorous one. Kareena’s ‘Ye Mera Dil’ act in Don was no match for what Helen had already achieved by seducing Amitabh Bacchan in the old Don. Helen looked scorching as the ‘Marathi mulgi’ in the song ‘Mungra’ and titillated the senses of men with her extremely sexy number ‘Piya Tu’. This blue eyes damsel still has an amazing screen presence. Most Bollywood dancers look up to her standards and copy her moves and expressions even today.

4. Rajesh Khanna

He was the ruling Bollywood actor at one point of time in the industry. Girls would swoon at the sight of him and do crazy stunts just to profess their love for him. Rajesh Khanna was not defined by his clothes, rather he gave his clothes a definition by making them a rage among youngsters who wanted to become like him. His style captured the heart of sixteen year old Dimple Kapadia who married him without a second thought. That is the charisma possessed by this man lovingly known as ‘Kaka’ among his fans and friends.

5. Sonam Kapoor

She always manages to look pretty and sports the latest designer wears and branded accessories. Call her a fashion maniac but this diva knows how to carry off her ensembles and is confident about her fashion sense. Not once have the fashion police caught her picking up a wrong dress from her wardrobe. Sonam Kapoor is the reigning style diva of Bollywood.

6. Salman Khan

Known as the brat of Bollywood and always in the news for wrong reasons but this guy never goes wrong with his style. He can carry off torn jeans, a blue bracelet and being human t shirt; that’s enough to make the girls go gaga over him. His rather weird look in Tere Naam, became the rage of the nation and guys allover started emulating his hairstyle. If only looks could kill, Salman would’ve created a massacre.

7. Twinkle Khanna

Before her marriage to Akshay Kumar, she had done a handful of films but none of them really brought out her real potential or her style mantra. In real life, she complements her better half and is perhaps the most well dressed star wives of all. She is pregnant with her second child now but her fashion sense has extended to her maternity wardrobe too. Akshay Kumar is a lucky man indeed.
