Sridevi’s Stunning Style Evolution: From Then To Now!

If we were to describe Kim K’s transformation over the years in one word - DRASTIC! Not in a bad way of course, under Kanye’s “helpful” guidance, the woman has learnt to style neutrals like a PRO!


We racked our brains over who closer to home would come close to this level of ‘glamover’ and the answer was unanimous - Sridevi.


Gone is the OTT makeup, the frizzy hair and the strict adherence to the same colour H2T, in its place, is neatly straightened hair, a flawless base, and an enviable collection of Sabyasachi and Manish Malhotra sarees, trench coats and neutrals.    


Endless binge watching of What Not To Wear has taught us that when a procedure as sacred as a makeover is undertaken, it is imperative for the make-over-ee (if that’s a word) to make the rules they learn a habit and not something they do occasionally.  


This seems to happen by default when you grow older, as age teaches the best makeover lessons (+ a team of stylists never hurt anyone). You finally come to terms with your body and that you need to learn to work with what you’ve got (insecurities who?), you learn what works best for you and your body, what trends to adopt and what trends to give a miss.


That’s why Sridevi has aged like a bottle of fine Merlot, and with two mini-fashionistas in the offing to boot, we’re not going to stop talking about her anytime soon.


But she’s still doing the same thing, just in a way that’s a lot more refined. To continue the wine analogy, the grape is the same, it’s just been stored a little longer. 


Let us illustrate this style evolution theory for you.  


1. Accessorising To A Tee  


Coco Chanel once said, "Always remove one thing before you leave the house. Less is more." Most of us have difficulty grasping this concept, but Sridevi has mastered the art of accessorising just enough.

2. Saree, Not Sorry! 


It’s not just Sridevi that has come a long way. The humble Indian saree has too. The styling, the fabrics, the variety of blouses. We’ll credit this particular transformation to Manish Malhotra, who has been styling her in the movies since the late 80's.

3. Metallic Mania


Let’s not blame her for this one. ‘Twas the era of the dance-pop and Madonna, but look how gracefully she rocks this metallic saree now.

4. Glamour Of Gold 


Let’s blame Madonna for this one again, shall we? But pulling off a gold pantsuit and making it look chic and NOT like she just stepped out a Bappi Lahiri video, BRAVA!

5. All White


Clearly, she struggles with embracing white in all its simplicity, but she got around to making it work for her - a classic button-down with a maxi skirt.

6. Through The Looking Glass


Her spectacle game has always been strong - an aviator frame to a perfectly round one.

7. Print Paraside


From bright and loud floral prints to chic co-ord pantsuits in autumnal colours, she's done and worked them all.
