Who were the most stylish celebs of 2014
The eight trendiest Bollywood beauties who made the cut.
Anyone who’s watched a beauty pageant in recent times knows that style has as much to do with a razor sharp mind as it does with impeccable taste and a killer body. As the new year dawns it’s time to look back at the year gone by and raise a cheer for all the gals who mastered the art of looking sensuous and innocent, bold and blushing, elegant and sassy. Women who know how to make waves without rocking the boat. So here’s Nykaa’s list of eight divine divas who lit up our lives with their unique brand of spunk and style in 2014.
This small town girl has officially made it big. Her odd accent notwithstanding, she was part of some of the biggest blockbusters in 2014, from Queen and Revolver Rani to Ungli. Her fashion sense is impeccable and Kangana’s thirst to grow immeasurable. As she says, “My biggest asset is that I know how to learn and that, I believe will help me in the long run.” We bet it will!
This stunning, lissome Bollywood actress, former model and badminton champion is dazzlingly gorgeous and surprisingly down to earth. This non-nonsense star with the dimpled smile has one of the most enviable figures in Bollywood. The former Kingfisher Calendar girl never misses a gym session and looks sensational is whatever she wears. She even manages to make simple cotton shifts look sexy! As anyone who’s seen Finding Fanny will attest to that!
This tech and media savvy, super talented star ranks right up there on the style sweepstakes. She is the only global Indian brand ambassador for fashion brand Guess, and rightly so. As the face of the Blenders Pride Fashion Tour, Priyanka is seen strutting down the streets of New York city with just the right amount of sassy attitude. Many devotees beleive the Instagram queen is solely responsible for bringing pouts back in vogue.
She’s always lived life by her own rules. In a live-in relationship with a much older Saif Ali Khan who she married, this stylish begum scoffs at naysayers and is living her dream, her way. Equally at home in commercial potboilers like Three Idiots, Jab We Met and Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, and critically aimed movies like Omkara, this light eyed actress continues to be much in demand. Whether it’s an award function or lounging at the airport, she remains one of Bollywood’s most stylish and fashionable divas.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan
The former Miss World transitioned to talented actress to devoted mommy like only she could. Stunningly gorgeous—remember her breathtaking appearances at Cannes—this model-turned actress makes the rules as she goes. As much at home in elegant saris and floor sweeping gowns showing off her hourglass figure. Never fazed by unkind jibes at the weight she put on while pregnant, she is back to being a swish, svelte fashionista. And devoted mommy to her tiny tot Aaradhya.
She is the quintessential fashionista, more known for her impeccable sense of style than her acting prowess. Her films may never have been box office successes but she has a loyal fan base oohing and aahing over her sartorial choices. The Vogue cover girl looks picture perfect in whatever she wears. Choosing Anamika Khanna off screen and onscreen, she graduated to vintage Chanel and Dior in Aisha, following that up with Jean Paul Gaultier Couture at Cannes. Outspoken to a fault with an uninhibited laugh this pretty actress wins our admiration anyday for staying true to what she loves most and does best!
She looks good in everything, from a jeans and blazer ensemble to a designer dress. Poised and pretty, this lissome actress carries herself like a lady. Her style is effortless, soft and minimalistic. Hair tousled in beachy weaves, peachy lips and a soft glow to her cheeks enhance her pretty features. Her acting skills may not be highly rated but one can’t but be bowled over by her mischevous smile and British accent.
Poor Anushka Sharma got so much flak for her enhanced pout that her unmistakeable style took a temporary backseat. But this gutsy, beautiful girl has a simple style philopsphy: “ I don’t wear clothes just because I want someone to follow me. If you are happy the way you are, it’s fine. Don’t be bothered by peer pressure. I detest it.” She says she doesn’t dress for anyone. “I wear nothing besides torn jeans, loose tees. Casual, shabby and grunge – that is my style of dressing. If I feel like a girl, I will probably wear a lovely dress but that really depends on my mood.” We can’t get enough of this chic and trendy gal.
