They say age is no bar when you are confident. Our favourite Bollywood actors have to not only work on their craft but also on their fitness and lifestyle to look good and stay relevant for their fans.
There are some yesteryear actresses in Bollywood who have been able to not only remain stunning but also stay at par with all the latest fashion trends. Actresses like Madhuri Dixit, Neena Gupta and Tabu have been in the industry for decades but their fashion sense is still strong and does not waver even when we see them off the screen. They remain crowd favourites for their acting skills and their fashion statements. Even today, they have not backed down in setting fashion trends and giving everybody else a run for their money.
Here are our top picks of Bollywood actresses who are our favourites because of their killer fashion trends
1. The timeless beauty, Madhuri Dixit
Standing strong and beautiful in her 55th year, this Bollywood diva still has fans swooning over her. She was one of the leading actors in the ’80s and ’90s and made her most recent appearance in the OTT space. She loves glamming up and posing on the ramp and is often spotted with her family on a casual day out. In a recent promotion for her newest OTT release, she had worn a floral three-piece lehenga that was a mix of ethnic and modern and set a fashion trend. Even when she disappears from our screens for a while, her fashion game remains on point.
2. The dream girl, Hema Malini
Would you believe us if we said that our very own dream girl turned 74 this year? Well, she has and continues to be unstoppable. She is a one-woman show because she has acted in over 50 movies, produced a few, is a passionate classical dancer and is also a successful politician. While being a complete superheroine, her fashion game has not dropped one bit. Hema Malini has always been in the limelight and was recently spotted at the airport. She is usually dressed in casuals or in traditional sarees — making heads turn either way.
3. The evergreen, Tabu
This stunning lady is over 50 and still gracing us all with her magnetic beauty and aura. She has always wowed us with her performances on screen but her off-camera looks are no less. She is always spotted as the elegant personality that she is and dresses that way too. Tabu’s fashion statement is all about elegance in simplicity. She is mostly seen in classic ethnic attire or stylish designer wear that always makes our jaws drop!
4. The ageless beauty, Neena Gupta
With over four decades in the industry, Neena Gupta has been a treat to watch both on and off-screen. She has always been beautiful and entertained us with her brilliant acting in versatile roles. She recently revived her career in Bollywood and thank god for that because she is giving us some serious fashion goals. She was most recently seen in the Netflix show Masaba Masaba, and to be honest, one favourite look is not enough. Be it a bright yellow chiffon saree or a three-piece semi-casual professional suit, she carries it all off like a fashion diva!
5. The girl next door, Neetu Kapoor
Despite being surrounded by a family of Bollywood biggies, this yesteryear actress cannot be dulled. She was always considered the girl next door and a trendsetter for every girl back in her day. She recently stepped into cinemas and the limelight again and we are glad she is back. With her movie in theatres, she was spotted at red carpet events, reality TV shows and promotions and she looked like a complete fashionista. With over 100 movies behind her, she is a fashion icon for women of all ages.
6. Queen of hearts, Sharmila Tagore
Considered one of the most beautiful women of Bollywood in the ’70s, this veteran actor had stolen many hearts back in the day. Her fashion game was always elegant and brought something new to the screen. Be it a chiffon saree, a pantsuit or a two-piece, this beauty has always been fashion-forward. She had the courage to start fashion trends that no other actor could, and almost half a century later, all of it is returning on screen. Now, she is seen at events draped in sophisticated sarees and spotted in casual wear and she is still breaking all the fashion trends.
7. The stunning, Shefali Shah
This Bollywood actress has time and again pleasantly surprised us with her outstanding acting. There is no way one would say that she is almost 50-years-old, given how she still maintains herself and continues setting fashion trends. She has recently been setting the OTT scene on fire with her appearances in movies like Darlings and web series like Delhi Crime. That’s not all. She has also been flaming us with her social media photos where she is wearing a monochrome saree with a belt and a retro blouse. She sets fashion trends for everybody to follow.
This has been one of the most difficult lists to curate for us because there are so many fashionistas that have been setting fashion trends but these are our top picks! The fashion game of these Bollywood actresses is one to follow!
