Before there was Pinterest or Instagram, people used to get their fashion ideas from Bollywood celebrities. When there was no influencer culture, these actresses were the only ones who set trends. Expanding on this, Twitter user apparition now enquired online what one particular costume that a Bollywood actress wore that could be considered a "era-defining piece" and had an impact on women's wardrobes. The tweet brought back a lot of memories as Indians on social media shared pictures of actresses dressed to the nines.
Others praised Deepika Padukone from Piku while some preferred Alia Bhatt from 2 States. Additionally, Katrina Kaif was mentioned in the 2000s. People also shared pictures of hefty jewellery and deep kajal looks.
Check out the responses:
One responded, “for me it has to be Piku. Her style is soo understated, elegant and classy. The bindi & the comfy kurtas really made ethnic wear cooler <3 (The graphic is from an internship I did)” the other responded, “Madhuri from Hum Apne Hain Kaun. Kajol in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, the hairband esp.” “When it comes to the traditional look
NOTHING comes remotely close to Madam Rekha... Anything she did with her drapes, hair or bindis became an instant hit with women viewers..” said the third
OTHER FEW COMMENTS WERE:
“Trisha cotton sarees from VTV & kurta+jeans+stole look from 96; Shalini amarkalam saree; Radhika chithi saree from Chithi serial (plain saree with golden motif borders); Anjali chudis (Engeyum Eppothum); My mum’s gen apprntly learnt to wear sarees from Suhasini + Revathi films," commented a Twitter user.
Another person said, “this immediately made me think of Deepika’s sarees in YJHD (this and the blue one!) for a full two years everyone at every school I knew was wearing it for their farewells and there were imitation copies of it in everyone’s closet.”
