At MissMalini, we keep a close watch on celebrities and what they’re wearing when they’re out and about. Since their clothes are always under close scrutiny, they don’t want to make a faux pas. Which is where the experts come in. In Sonam Kapoor’s case, she got it easy, sister Rhea Kapoor styles her whenever she needs to attend an event; but what about the others?

While everyone isn’t lucky enough to have a sister-cum-stylist, they enlist the help of professional stylists to take over their wardrobes.

We thought it would be great to give you a glimpse of who the brains behind all the glamorous celebrity clothes are.

It makes sense to start with fashion’s royalty, doesn’t it? While Deepika Padukone knocks it out of the park with her clothes every time she steps out, Vogue’s Fashion Director, Anaita Shroff Adajania is the mastermind behind her trendy-luxe look.
