Shilpa Shetty Kundra is undoubtedly the original diva of Bollywood, one with an inimitable sense of style. Her distinct choices and the grace with which she carries herself have always put her in the spotlight—whether on the international front or back home in Bollywood. But the actress has never been one to follow trends blindly; she prefers to set her own rules. Always dressed to impress, it seems like this yummy mummy can do no wrong in the fashion department. Here we decode the style mantras of our favourite Bollywood glamazon.
Kundra doesn’t shy away from bright colours and pulls of cheery yellows and tangerine oranges with ease. Color blocking seems to be a go-to trend for the actress, as she often pairs contrasting bags and accessories with her colorful outfits.
Shilpa Shetty is the queen of draped saris, as is evident from her amazing appearances on numerous dance shows as well as the red carpet. And why not—an amazing height and statuesque frame make sure these figure-flaunting cuts always look elegant on her. On a side note—have you seen her abs?!
Despite being intensely loyal to Indian wear, Shilpa Shetty wears contemporary and fusion clothing like a pro. She tends to stick to a neutral color palette when it comes to new-age styles, but mixes in pops of color every now and then. Off-shoulder tops with dhoti pants, tailored Indo-western tunics and saris with peplum blouses—Shilpa’s hour-glass frame makes everything look good.
Shilpa is a part of that hallowed list of divas who inspire fashion messiahs like Tarun Tahiliani and Manish Malhotra. Often spotted in Malhotra’s classic twinkling outfits, and Tahiliani’s distinctive anarkalis and sari gowns, she sports her designer threads with élan. As evident, the diva isn’t afraid to experiment with her couture and wear something refreshing every time!
