It seems like yesterday when Sonakshi Sinha made her debut with Dabangg, way back in 2010. The actress has time and again proved that there's much more to her than her stellar acting. Eight years later, here we are celebrating her awe-inspiring fashion sense on her 31st birthday.
If today I'm comfortable in my body, it's because Sonakshi taught us to, "Be comfortable; be you. What's most important is to understand what suits your body type and personality. Stick to that, and you can't go wrong!".
Here are 31 style tips for curvy girls, courtesy Sonakshi Sinha, for a better, comfortable and stylish year ahead.
