She’s the reigning box office queen and Bollywood’s current “it” girl. But that’s not the only reason why we can’t seem to get enough of the statuesque Deepika Padukone. With undoubtedly the hottest body in the Hindi film industry (have you seen those abs?!), and the fabulous Anahita Shroff Adajania as her sartorial godmother, DPad has shot to the top of our style charts in the past couple of years. Whether it’s airport style, or some red carpet glamour, this model-turned-actress never fails to wow us with her uber-trendy ensembles. We give you 8 reasons why we'd love to take on the world Deepika Padukone style!
The epic style transformation she has undergone is truly remarkable - from being the play-it-safe newcomer back in 2008 who got it wrong at times, to the head-turning glamazon she is today. She isn’t afraid to experiment and take risks with her public appearances any longer. From racy and risqué to elegant and charming, she pulls off any look with ease.
When it comes to high-profile red carpet events, Deepika has done it all - she can show up looking adorably traditional in a stunning sari, or blow our minds in a risqué, cutout gown with vampy dark lips. The best thing about her - she always keeps us guessing and we love her for it! You can always count on her to keep it interesting with shiny embellished numbers and fun hair and makeup. Few other actresses can match her when it comes to some serious red carpet drama.
No, we’re not just talking about her role as the subtly sexy Naina in Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. Even in real life, you can spot Deepika having no qualms about sporting her black-framed glasses with her-uber stylish ensembles in public. There’s no doubt that the chashmish look, like her dimples, just adds to her charm.
It seems like the magazines can’t get enough of this stunner either - she’s one of the most sought-after stars when it comes to gracing their covers. Maybe it’s her modelling experience, or maybe it’s that certain je nais se quoi that she brings to everything that she wears, but Deepika sure has a knack for brightening up the pages of any publication. Admit it, you definitely want to pick up a copy when you see this hottie on the cover!
From barely-there blouses to dangerously short skirts, we’ve seen Dips sway those slender hips in the sexiest of ensembles - and she does it with flair. What would otherwise look rather skimpy on someone else, Deepika manages to rock with grace and comes off looking more ravishing than raunchy. We don’t know how she does it, but we love her for it!
It’s still one of our fave trends, and it’s like DPad is its mascot - she works the midi like nobody else. We’ve seen her step out in gorgeous midi skirts and dresses on multiple occasions, and she seems to get it right every single time. She’s probably inspired plenty of girls to shop this trend thanks to how she rocks the midi-and-sky-high-heels with complete pizzazz!
Deepika often trades in those high heels and figure hugging dresses for comfy boyfriend jeans, flats and cute tops for some off-duty style. She nails casual chic, and we can’t get enough of her girl-next-door fashion because it’s so relateable and effortlessly awesome.
If we were in love with her sartorial choices earlier, it’s grown even more thanks to the hunky companion she is frequently spotted with of late - we’re talking about Ranveer Singh, of course! He’s definitely one dapper charmer, and together they make Bollywood’s best-dressed couple, hands down. Plus, the fact that they absolutely glow in each other’s company definitely adds to their gorgeous factor!
