Between sappy love stories, thumkas and flying cars (thank you, Rohit Shetty), Bollywood has managed to give us some brilliant fashion looks that ranged from quirky to chic. So here is the list of 10 iconic female Bollywood celebrity looks of the last decade.
Between sappy love stories, thumkas and flying cars (thank you, Rohit Shetty), Bollywood has managed to give us some brilliant fashion looks that ranged from quirky to chic. Who can forget Geet (Kareena Kapoor of Jab We Met) in her patialas or Deepika Padukone in her party girl (Cocktail) look?! These 10 looks definitely managed to catch our attention and had us all caught up in a fashion tizzy!
Kareena Kapoor in Jab We Met
Who can forget feisty Geet with her motor-mouth syndrome and a big heart to go along with it. Geet’s Punjabi personality was offset with comfortable patialas and long T-shirts in pastel colours. This outfit was simple and super comfortable and every girl was seen sporting it.

Aishwarya Rai in Jodhaa Akbar
Aishwarya’s grand look in Jodha Akbar makes for an ideal D-Day inspiration. Decked in elaborate gold, rubies and polki jewellery, this look is perfect for the girl who wants to go all out on her wedding day. Although Aishwarya sports some elaborate lehenga’s in zardosi work, remember to tone down your outfit if your jewellery is heavy.
Deepika Padukone in Cocktail
Sequins, sheer, neon lingerie and some more sheer (*sigh*). We can’t point out what we loved more in Cocktail – Deepika’s stunning body or her amazing look. Carefree, party-girl or just plain sexy, Deepika rocked every ensemble. This sequinned outfit is our favourite and is the perfect look to rock for a party.
Alia Bhatt’s Wedding Sari Look in 2 States
We’ve all seen the typical Bollywood bridal look – heavy lehenga filled with embroidery work and very heavy jewellery. We were ecstatic when we saw Alia’s bridal look in 2 States. Devoid of any finery, Alia wore an orange and raspberry red banarsi lehenga with no embroidery and plain chunni fastened with a kamarbandh. She looked absolutely radiant in this minimalistic avatar. We loved the mogra flowers in the hair and the subtle gold jewellery, perfect for the simple bride.

Lisa Haydon Hippie-chic Look in Queen
No one embodies hippie-chic quite like Lisa Haydon. Queen saw her sporting cut-off denim shorts, leather jackets, crop tops and combat boots and we couldn’t get enough of this free-spirited look. Want to get it? Pair your cut-off shorts with a mullet top and grab your flat tan boots.
Sonam Kapoor’s Sophisticated Girly Look in Aisha
You can’t talk about Iconic fashion in Bollywood and not include Aisha. Aisha was a two-hour runway show of the best in fashion from kundan jewellery to haute couture. She wore Chanel like a shining armour and wielded her Lady Dior like a sword. Dresses, blouses with high-waist pants and fascinators, what’s not to love!? We would trade lives with her in a heart beat.
Priyanka Chopra’s Bikini Blouse in Dostana (Desi Girl)
Circa 2008 and everyone was sporting a bikini blouse with their Indian wear. Thanks to our Desi Girl, Priyanka Chopra, the sari was the hottest thing you could wear to a wedding. If you’ve got the body to sport, this push-up bikini blouse is still pretty much in vogue and can be worn to a cocktail party or the sangeet with a plain sari.

Illeana D’Cruz’s Retro Look in Barfi
Simple printed saris, oversized sunnies and a big bindi decorating the centre of the forehead, Ileana channelled the innocence and beauty of a girl living in Kolkata in the 70s. Subtle makeup, the pouf in the hair and minimal jewellery, we simply can’t get enough of this look.
Aishwarya Rai’s Cut Out Swimsuit From Dhoom 2
Aishwarya scorched the screens with her bikini body and this cut-out swimsuit in Dhoom 2. Sporting a majority of cut-out tops and costumes topped with mini-skirts, this is one look that had us sighing for more.
Anushka Sharma’s bright suits in Band Baaja Baarat
Punjabi weddings are a riot of colours and this look had us gunning for our brightest patiala suits for the wedding season when Baad Baaja Baarat released. These eye-catching suits in contrasting colours of deep blue, red and yellow were the perfect mix of spice and sassiness.
