If there’s one Bollywood starlet who knows how to work an array of looks and versatile styles, it is none other than Deepika Padukone. The actress has most certainly made her mark in the industry and is recognized for her stellar performances in a myriad of films, her bold sartorial choices and her sense of style. The starlet has been making waves in the industry and never fails to leave heads turning each time she steps out. She serves major style inspo with her fashion forward looks and bold sartorial choices; and has had her hands full with a number of projects as of late. The Padmaavat actress made a bold statement at this year’s Cannes Film Festival as well as at the MET Gala and social media was going gaga for her looks.
Deepika Padukone is also an avid user of social media and loves to share glimpses of her life and her style with her fans. She recently took to Instagram to launch The Deepika Padukone Closet which will allow fans to own pieces from her closet and in turn, the money will be donated to mental health awareness. She also shares pictures from her film’s promotional campaigns and this may have been Deepika Padukone’s best year yet; sartorially speaking. With that being said, we realized that Deepika Padukone’s Instagram is home to all the fabulous looks she’s sported throughout the year and so, we decided to scroll through her Instagram and decode her best fashion moments of the year.
1. The Unconventional Power Suit
Deepika Padukone often opts for white and there’s every reason that she should wear it more often. One of our top picks from Deepika Padukone’s looks this year was the Alberta Ferretti cape power suit which had us swooning. 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 Piku 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.
2. Fabulous In Tulle
Deepika Padukone has quite the penchant for tulle and just like last year, rocked tulle at the Cannes Film Festival this year. Her appearance at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year 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.
3. Hey There Sunshine
While Deepika Padukone left heads turning in tulle at the Cannes Film Festival, she went on to make a bold statement in yellow. While her tulle Giambatitsa Valli gown turned heads the world over, we feel she was more elegance personified in this yellow Sabyasachi sari. The sari was unconventional to say the least, with its baggy sleeves and front bow detailing.
Deepika Padukone completed her look with a pair of statement earrings and with her hair slicked back in a neat bun, Deepika Padukone’s pictures in this look were circulating across social media. Deepika Padukone opted for bronze eyes and a minimal overall makeup look and most certainly stole the year with this look.
Meanwhile, on the work front, Deepika Padukone just wrapped up shooting for the Kabir Khan directorial, ’83. She will be seen alongside her husband for the very first time since they tied the knot and will be essaying the role of RomI Bhatia, wife of legendary cricket player; Kapil Dev. The film is all set to narrate the story of how Kapil Dev lead India to victory in the 1983 World Cup. Deepika Padukone is also gearing up for the release of Meghna Gulzaar’s Chhapaak in which she will essay the role of real life acid attack survivor; Laxmi Agarwal.
