Calling out a celebrity’s outfit and giving it our nod of approval is something that happens on a daily basis. The actor or actress’s look is broken down, given a thumbs up and we even let our readers know who styled them. It’s the stylist who has those magic powers that transform a celebrity’s look. Whether they make it to a best dressed list or not – it all lies in their stylist’s hands. So of course, it’s only fair to give them a shoutout – after all, we wouldn’t have anywhere else to get our daily outfit inspirations from it it wasn’t for them, right? So here are the stylists who indirectly influenced our style in 2015.
All three women have had a big year in Bollywood and all their #ootds feature outfit credits that belong to Ami Patel. From Kangana Ranaut‘s always chic get-ups, Alia Bhatt‘s playful numbers and Priyanka Chopra‘s sultry favourites, Ami manages to pull it all off. It’s no wonder our style pages are filled with Kangana, Alia and PC. She even styles Athiya Shetty.

You’ve tried aping Deepika Padukone‘s look at least a couple of times this year. But it’s Shaleena Nathani who picks out her outfits, and it’s those picks that we fall in love with every time Deepika steps out.
She’s one of the country’s top fashionistas and her sister Rhea Kapoor can take the credit for that. Rhea and her team of Abhilasha Devnani and Chandni Wahabi not only make sure Sonam Kapoor stays on top of every best dressed list, they have also taken on the responsibility of styling Anil Kapoor, Fawad Khan and Sooraj Pancholi.
Tanya Ghavri has the power to make Jacqueline Fernandez, Katrina Kaif and Kareena Kapoor Khan sexier than they already are. We hold our breath every time these ladies step out, and stare in wonder as to how they manage to look hotter with every event. She even styles Kajol.
A couple of months ago, Sonakshi Sinha‘s stylist, Sakshi Mehra gave us tips on how to get Sonakshi’s style. Those curves are on every Desi girl’s wish list, and Sakshi and Chinar Desai know exactly how to make them look fantastic.
While her sister Kareena is off looking sexier than ever, Karisma Kapoor looks more like a royal with each passing day and the credit for that goes to her stylist, Esha Amin. She even dishes on all Karisma’s style secrets, see them here.

What can we say about Ranveer Singh‘s style that hasn’t already been said? As for where he gets his quirkyness and sass from? It’s Nitasha Gaurav who takes care of that. From giving no f*cks to being one of the most stylish men out there – she can make Ranveer look good in anything and everything.

No best menswear list is complete without Imran Khan and Imran Khan’s style isn’t complete without the duo behind Vainglorious. Priyanka and Kazim have him wearing the coolest brands and the best styles no matter where he goes. They’ve started using their powers for Aditya Roy Kapoor, Avantika Khan and we’re hoping the list continues to get longer.
While Allia Al Rufai might be more about the campaigns and editorials, she styled Anushka Sharma for her Dil Dhadake Do promotions. You don’t need me to tell you how great those outfits were.

Kriti Sanon‘s Dilwale promotional looks are fresh in everyone’s minds and Sanjana Batra is the stylist behind all her quirky outfits. She even styles Shilpa Shetty. Take a look at some of our favourites on Kriti…
So is it safe to say that these men and women have influenced your style this past year? They’ve certainly influenced mine :)
