Deepika Padukone is not only a brilliant actress but also takes away the award for one of the best dressed Bollywood celebrities today. However, the gorgeous actress has come a long way and we can all take style lessons and some inspiration from Deepika Padukone’s style journey. Since her debut as Shanti in Farah Khan’s Om Shanti Om she has grown, not only as an actor but also as a style diva.

1. Opt For Pieces That Highlight Your Assets

As far as Deepika’s style journey goes, the sporty girl-next-door quickly transformed from tank tops and divided skirts to heavily embellished lehengas on the red carpet. It seems like Deepika’s inner style diva woke up on the wrong side of the bed. Deepika’s OTT wardrobe choices seemed to take away attention from her naturally lean body and head-to-toe embellished lehengas made her look tacky, over traditionally elegant.

2. Pair Your Outfits Right

With her movies releasing back to back, the actress seemed to be appearing on the red carpet quite often. However, her outfits came in the form of overly embellished gowns, layered in an unruly fashion that almost put us off to to sleep. Boring!

3. Trends Don’t Always Work For Everyone

The dusky actress was spotted flaunting a lovely Rohit Bal sari at the Cannes 2010 and from that day, she took the sari trend way too seriously. She dressed in ensembles that were too busy. I totally agree, the sari became a big trend then, but it doesn’t mean one trend can do the trick all the time. It’s important to continue experimenting.

4. Find Your Statement Style

Deepika Padukone was spotted dressed in a gorgeous red gown on Karan Johar’s chat show – Koffee With Karan. It looked like her wardrobe took a complete u-turn. The actress quickly shifted from casual tees and cargos to well-fitted jumpsuits and backless gowns with slits that accentuated her sexy legs and lean figure. Works doesn’t it?

5. Dress According To What Works Best For You

Padukone quickly rose from the actress that flaunted bling-y lehengas, to the actress that drove us crazy with her jaw-dropping gowns on the red carpet. Yes, she experiments with her style, keeping in mind what works best, even when it comes to traditional Indian numbers. See how the actress dressed at the Star Guild awards last night. Love!?
