Bollywood celebrities took fashion to a whole new level.
The best-dressed actresses in Bollywood today are an interesting bunch.
Divas like Deepika Padukone and Bhumi Pednekar use their celebrity status to make a statement.
Their style may be confusing to some, but many of them are certainly not followers.
Many of them take the role of trendsetters when it comes to their fashion choices, and they answer to no one.
On the other hand, some Bollywood divas don’t appear to care about fashion at all.
Others attempt to follow in the footsteps of bold fashion trailblazers but don’t quite make it. Others, well, are just plain weird.
Historically, there have been many horrific dressers who also happened to star in Bollywood blockbusters.
Let’s focus this list on our current crop of fashion superstars.
Without further ado, DESIblitz presents the top 15 most stylish Bollywood stars of 2023.
