RANI MUKHERJEE IN BUNTY AUR BABLI-
I literally kicked myself out for missing this major trendsetter out? My apologies:)Always a stunning actress,Rani yet made vibrant coloured,short collared kurtis a massive style statement throughout the country. She made sure that the 'babli'ness & radiance that she transmitted from those creative kameezes would lure many other young girls to purchase them from the nearest shop.Tres chic!
AISHWARYA RAI BACHCHAN IN HUM DIL DE CHUKE SANAM-
The role that brought the "World's most beautiful woman"on the verge of national visibility. And how would she not be,what with blue coloured Rajasthani ghagra choli! Showing us her impeccable dancing skills,Ash's image in this blue choli makes her look more heavenly and perfect than ever!Hum dil de chuke sanam indeed!!!!
ZEENAT AMAN IN HARE RAMA HARE KRISHNA-
Zeenie makes another smashing appearance in this list,this time armed with "flower power"too,in a look that perfectly symbolizes the hippie culture of the late 60s and early 70s. Those over-sized tinted glasses; the hippie-chic bell-bottoms and bright flowery tops; that orange kurti accessorised with yellow marigold garlands as she gets high in the Dum maro dum sequence, complete with an incongruous red bindi on her forehead. Aman’s flower-power style of dressing brought boho-chic to Hindi cinema long before we had even heard of the term.
DEV ANAND IN GUIDE(ALMOST ALL HIS FILMS!)-
High-collared shirts and jackets, dressed up with a casually-draped scarf, and topped off with that signature quiff of hair modelled on Gregory Peck?Sounds weird?On Dev Saab however it looks incomparable. But then that is why he's Dev Anand. Always experimenting with his looks,& coming out with a common yet distinctly individualistic fashion,Dev Anand in a deerstalker hat packs a punch. Flamboyance and class ,thy second name is Dev Anand.
SRRIDEVI IN CHANDNI-
Sridevi in anything is a vision. Sridevi in a white Amrapali costume is something on a different,mind-blowing level however. Trust Sri to rock the simplest and blandest of colours like blue and white,& trust her to come out triumphant. Her tall,feminine,curvaceous body,grace of her lithe figure & angelic face make Sridevi look like an apsara out of a picture. In fact Sridevi's white costumes were so popular throughout India that they gave rise to the "Chandni look".
MADHURI DIXIT IN SSAILAAB-
While many of the users picked Madhuri "Jhoothe Do Paise Lo"ghagra choli,I believe Mads dressed as a traditional Marathi mulgi is the most iconic of all. Decked up as a traditional Maharashtrian fisherwoman with her navel suitably exposed,Mads looks at her hottest best. This lavani dancer look has been replicated by many including Katrina Kaif herself,but nothing can touch the original not by any inch.
KAJOL IN DILWALE DULHANIA LE JAYENGE-
Ewwwwww Shrek's colour!!!!!Ewwww!!!!Dark green lehenga?Blech!Surprisingly on Kajol this flashy dark green ensemble looks too fetching. And when you think of Mehendi Laga Ke Rakhna indeed the one image that pops up is Kajol's blech.....green ensemble. The dress became hugely popular in wedding circles too.
SUSHMITA SEN IN MAIN HOON NA-
In school I used to always love Chemistry. But after watching Sushmita Sen in Main Hoon Na I fell head over heels in love with it. One appearance of Sush in those classy yet chic polka-dotted colourful saris & all the male population of India was left wishing they had a Chemistry teacher just half as hot. Sodium+HCl is explosive she says? I tend to disagree!!!!!!
PRIYANKA CHOPRA IN DOSTANA-
I must say no other bikini has made such an impact on me.Ever.Period.For the most part of Dostana,Priyanka Chopra looked like a zillion bucks in short,chic mini-skirts & hot pants,& bikini tops(including a golden sari). But the moment when she emerges out of the water,her sun kissed skin glimmering in the hot Miami daylight,her curvaceous yet perfectly tone body with meat in the right places,& that golden bikini. The design & structure of that beautiful golden bikini against Piggy Chops's gorgeous tan made half of the men in the audience crave for her.
RANBIR KAPOOR IN SAAWARIYA-
Saawariya was a bomb at the box office. Ranbir & his towel however were not. The talented young Kapoor scion,shed er...more than just his inhibitions as he pranced to Jab Se Tere Naine in nothing but grasp yourself....a white towel. And then when he dropped even that & gave us a little peek-a-boo,it raised the eyebrows of many but more than that skipped many young girl's heart beat(including me.Wink,wink!).
Sorry guys I've been a bit late in making Part 2 cause I was really busy over the past week. I made this post because there were many requests to include in many other favourite dresses,& I agree missing some was a major oversight. Hopefully you liked this one too!!!Thanks:)
