Oomph and oops: Bollywood stars and their fashion choices in first half of 2015
Glamorous, over the top, overstated or ridiculous — they sported it all. We give you a lowdown on Bollywood fashion that made us sit up and take notice in the first half of 2015...
Whether it's a red carpet appearance or a bold choice for a night out, Bollywood stars manage to grab just as much attention for their fashion choices as for their movies. While there are some who can rock a suit as well as a pair of sweatpants while getting their daily caffeine fix, at the other end of the spectrum is an exasperating bunch of actors, who despite having a personal stylist and access to the latest sartorial trends, end up making some cringeworthy fashion choices. Like every year, 2015 too has seen a mixed bag so far. hitlist tracks the stars' lookbook...
He's proved his acting chops, but what he probably doesn't get as much credit for is his red-carpet appearances. It's safe to say that Shahid is well acquainted with what is in vogue in the men's world of style and is slowly mastering the art of sophisticated fashion.
The young actor may soon master the art of casual yet sophisticated dressing. We like his mix, match, wear and flaunt dressing that exudes street fashion and almost yells out 'preppy, sporty but classy'.
We would like to take a bow to simply appreciate the amount of fashion risks this actress takes. From vintage hairdos to wild curls and denim rompers, she's worn them all, and worn them in style. From the actress' playful choices, it's easy to say that she is currently leading the brigade when it comes to flaunting fashion in all its outrageous glory.
What is praiseworthy about PeeCee's fashion sense is that it has progressed and gotten better with time. With her wavy, beach struck hair and lithe figure, she can carry off both sweats and a bohemian style dress with a quiet confidence.
This young gun deserves a spot on this list based merely on the fact that he might be the only actor in Bollywood who experiments with his clothes and is, in all probability, not scared of making mistakes. Be it his spiffy tuxedos or Sylvester pajamas, the man can be quite a tease with all those fun clothes and yet ooze an almost debonair appeal.
Leading the gang of actors who need to hire a stylist ASAP is the “other PC”. While her stylish cousin is a regular on the best-dressed lists, this actress' best efforts have often gone in vain, her look usually ending up in the trying-too-hard fashion archive.
Fashion disaster and Huma have started to go hand in hand. We are not quite sure what's worse, the silhouette or the outfits gone terribly wrong. It's time that the actress got a new stylist.
Commendable how she tries, but we have a piece of advice for the actress. With all those shoulder-accentuating, figure-hugging outfits that she's been donning, the collective body of fashion police is getting a fever. Try a loose blouse with a well fitting pair of pants, perhaps. Simple and minimal does the trick at times.
Could do better
She's been on a roll since her debut in 2012. While her personal style is edgy, fun and chic, we do wish the young actress would dress her age a bit more and experiment with trends.
Thanks to her svelte frame and red carpet-ready confidence, this actress rarely ever looks bad, but that right there might bethe problem. If she took a cue from her contemporaries and experimented with her clothes a bit instead of blindly aping trends from the West, she would be a fashionista in every sense of the word.
