Mujhko hui na khabar,
Chori-chori chhup-chhup kar,
Kab pyaar ki pehli nazar,
After a series of comedies (and Raja Hindustani), Karisma Kapoor sabka 'dil le gayi le gayi' with her power-packed performance in the 1997 Award-winning movie Dil Toh Pagal Hai. So much for the song reference, it's not the movie that we're celebrating today, but the National Award winner's 44th birthday!
That's right, the gorgeous Karisma Kapoor turns 44 today and we're having a flashback of all things magical, take her outfits for example. Here are 10 of her looks that are too fashionable and stylish to exist.
Having looked at her most recent airport look, all I can think about asking Karisma is, "What is mobile number? What is your smile number?". In a beautiful white on black dotted midi dress paired with beige pumps and a silver printed jacket, this look is easy to try and stylish to fly.

Here go the summertime sadness thanks to Karisma and her strappy sundress. Treat yourself to some whites in this season of florals for that one in a million look. Here is a maxi dress for maxi(mum) fun! Glam up with a crossbody bag and hoops earrings.

Sarees don't always have to be of the 'shaadi' kind. Just like Karisma, we too are turning monochrome one outfit at a time. This linen saree with a black printed border is earthy yet ethereal. Beat the heat with stylish braids, a simple bindi and statement jhumkas to add a little oomph to your outfit.

Forget palazzo or salwar and brace yourself for a hawa-hawai summer with stylish dhoti pants. Easy-breezy fashion, high on style and an excellent way to nail the fusion trend. Pair it with a boxy top and juttis like Karisma or with a kurti and open flats this season.

A shimmering midi skirt with all-over glitter paired with a t-shirt, here's an idea for the next party you have to attend. Take a cue from Karisma to style for the occasion without going OTT. Just strap on your best heels and dance the night away.

Sona kitna sona hai Karisma's fairy-like gown. This embroidered mesh flared gown in a beautiful dusty pink colour is what fashion dreams are made of. Match your makeup to your outfit and go easy on the accessories for a royal look.
This longline overcoat with tie-up details is love at first sight. The subtle yet dramatic print on this olive jacket is what's been missing from my winter wardrobe. And her sunglasses and matching heels are proof enough that anything can be made to look high-street fashion instantly.
POPxo Recommends: Unisex Square Sunglasses (Rs 8,390) by Ray-Ban.
We love the details Karisma is bracing in this outfit starting with the studded heels, the slogan clutch purse and the theatrical ruffled sleeves on one-shoulder. In a room full of little black dresses, make yourself stand out by investing in quirky accessories and footwear.

When Karisma traded her heels for a pair of white sneakers with her culotte three-piece set, we saw street style fashion in a whole new light. Also, we're totally bringing back the half-tie hairdo this season. Are you?

Simple can be sexy too, Karisma shows us how. She paired cropped denim culottes with a black top and bold lips. Seriously, that's all it takes to make a basic outfit look anything but basic.
