The dimpled beauty and the queen of hearts Deepika Padukone is called the ‘style icon’ today which she says she got it by default, and we agree to disagree on this fact! The tall leggy lass started her career way back in 2006, where the world saw a new superstar in the making. Being the daughter of ace Badminton player Prakash Padukone, she was to follow her father’s steps, in which she managed to play many national level championships before stepping into modeling and finally making it into movies. Started her career in modeling, Deepika got many film offers where she finally debuted with the king Shahrukh Khan in the blockbuster Om Shanti Om. Bollywood was her calling and eventually she came out to become the highest paid actresses. But the journey between her modeling days and the filmy career had a rocky terrain when it came to fashion. There were misses and hits before Deepika got on to being the most stylish person. Let’s check out how Deepika went on to become a style blunderer to a style icon!
The Journey from Bling to Bingo!
The style Diva in her modeling days during which she got her first stint in Bollywood, was typically styled as the most stereotyped actresses with dark make-up, bold highlights and typically embellished Indian wear in and around 2007. The initial years for Deepika were disaster. From casual tees and cargos to wearing heavy lehengas, it somewhere hid Deepika’s beautiful body.
The star had a typical way of wearing bling- full outfits which didn’t really go well with the fashion critics. Eventually, by 2011, Deepika had got a hold on to right kind of silhouettes and tried experimenting with different designers. Rahul Khanna and Rohit Gandhi were her rescuers for some time when she met her then favorite New-York based designer Naeem Khan whose evening gowns were her personal favorites. The red peplum gown is what comes to our mind where the ‘Bachna-Ae-Haseeno’ actress absolutely nailed the look. Probably 2011 was a year of her transition where she decided to dress for her figure and show-off her sexy slim body.
After this Deepika never looked back and only showed the best out of her closet; dresses that could accentuate her curves. Gowns looked extremely elegant and sexy, thanks to her tall and lean figure. Deepika didn’t stop experimenting with newer styles and carried them with a lot of grace and poise like the cutout dresses, Bell bottoms, collars and long skirts, lacy ensembles, unusual bold floral patterns to say the least. Deepika was becoming a stylist in herself and now had a way of dressing and she had everybody drooling!
From the year 2014, Deepika has never had a fashion blooper till now unlike the past. Now not just her public appearance was as appealing, her style in movies evolved too. Deepika’s role in all her movies was different from each other and demanded creative dress sense which she clearly had by now. Movies like Cocktail, Love Aaj Kal, Tamasha had her best outfit moments as she got most accolades by the fashion police. Her laid back, happy-go-lucky charm seemed to work with all the ensembles put together. In all these films, she chose to go with the typical urbane chic who is confident, sexy and stylish. Talking about her Indian dresses, Bajirao Mastani and RamLeela had the most beautiful and elegant batches of all times.
Deepika Padukone believes that dressing has to be simple and minimalistic which she learned from her mother Ujjala who Deepika considers to be her very own style icon. These days, you can see Deepika in her very casually effortless outfits and laid-back hairstyles which make her look absolutely stunning.
