1. The Cape Power Suit
The year 2019 has truly been all about the power suit. And Deepika Padukone added her own twist to the power suit earlier this year when she sported a caped Alberta Ferretti power suit. The unconventional power suit is one of Deepika Padukone’s best looks this year we think. The ensemble featured a pair of chic bootleg pants and a double breasted blazer with a caped style garment attached to it. She enhanced the look with a pair of diamond drop earrings and opted for a loose bun with some strands undone. For her makeup look, the Padmaavat actress opted for a bronze and earthy palette with her eyelids in hues of brown as well as her lipstick. With an overall bronzed look, this outfit was a total winner in our books and Masala! approved.

Her appearance at the Cannes Film Festival this May was a much-anticipated affair. The world eagerly waited to see her grace the red carpet and once she did, she left jaws dropping with her unexpected, bold sartorial choice for the mega event. The Bajirao Mastani actress arrived on the red carpet in a voluminous, neon tulle gown by Giambattista Valli and left heads turning. The gorgeous Giambattista Valli gown had a long train and was coupled with baby pink bows.The starlet accessorized with a contrasting head piece and her hair tied back in a bun. She opted for minimal makeup and a nude pout and most certainly stole the show and all the limelight that comes with the Cannes Film Festival.

Deepika Padukone is most often styled by her close friend and celebrity stylist, Shaleena Nathani. For the Jio Mami Mumbai Festival, Deepika Padukone was clad in a pretty pink tiered tulle gown by Giambattista Valli and it truly looked like what pink dreams are made of. The dress featured three layers of gorgeous tulle and a black tube at the top. For her hair, Deepika Padukone had it scruffily pushed back and tied back into a bun with some loose strands left atop her head.

5. Making Waves On The Ramp
This year, designer duo, Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla celebrated 33 years of being in the fashion industry and celebrated with an extravagant showcase in Mumbai for which Deepika Padukone turned showstopper. For the show, she was clad in a stunning lengha choli and made a dreamy appearance on the ramp. She was dressed in a cream full-sleeved choli with mirror work adorned all over it.
