When Deepika Padukone made her Bollywood debut with Om Shanti Om in 2007, she had already earned media’s attention for her panache in the modeling world. After entering Bollywood, her style quotient upgraded and she quickly adapted to the overblown ethnic wears, dramatic hair accessories and heavy makeup. Let’s find out the style evolution and many fashion moods of Deepika Padukone!
In her initial years, Deepika was more lauded for her sculpted looks than for her style sensibilities. DP has also gone through some embarrassing moments of fashion disasters just like other actresses in their initial years. Remember her tulle and fur which she had paired with her floor-length embellished sheer gown in pink for the premiere of Chandni Chowk to China in 2009?
The girl was smart enough to learn from her mistakes and 2 years later she was on her own, picking appropriate silhouettes that screamed only edgy trends paired with balanced accessories and makeup, making her look poised and elegant.
Undoubtedly, Deepika is blessed with a great body and some of her assets are just unmatched. And this makes her fit into a few pieces which is hard to be pulled off by anyone else in the circuit. For instance, Deepika rocked the one-shoulder metallic dress – CUE by Rohit Gandhi and Rahul Khanna. Deepika’s toned and athletic arms made full justice to this number.
And when Deeps fell in love with the New York based designer Naeem Khan, her wardrobe then went through a major makeover, of course with all the good elements.
The Chennai Express actress was all of a sudden seen in dynamic styling that ensures all of her best features that were not highlighted properly before.
As per Vogue,
“Her evolution into a sartorial savant, especially one who doesn’t shy away from daring red carpet moments, was cemented with two looks that generated a thousand headlines.”
Those two dresses were a Prabal Gurung cutout dress that she had worn for the Filmfare Awards 2014 and a Gaurav Gupta gown that she wore to the GQ Men of The Year awards 2012.
