Honest opinion about the Indian Fashion Scenario

Amazing Celebrity make-overs

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on January 19, 2011

 I have always wondered how hard do the celebrities work at looking good???? Do they have a checklist which they follow every single time they step out of their residential door???? Or their stylist does all the running around to find that perfect look for them??? It is not that even they were born perfect……………….but in the course of time in this competitive high fashion world they have achieved perfection. Some people change their looks with time, reinvent themselves and once they find their signature style………………they stick to it for a lifetime. This is what exactly happened with these celebrities who looked just like another person but are one of the stylish people around.  

Saif Ali Khan

Way back then

  

‘Chote Nawab’ as he is called with love, started his career on a low point without any help from his family………..for years he stayed in the shadow of famous parents and an equally famous wife. But that did not deter Saif Ali khan from experimenting………….though the initial years were tough for him since he was always offered second lead roles in films. His long hair, loose ill-fitted clothes and bad fashion sense made things only worst for him…………..until ‘Dil Chahta hai’ happened. In comes Saif Ali Khan with a new shorter hair cut, clean-shaven look, and bit of muscle………..and what you have???  Women screaming their hearts out for this cute dude!!! He has gone on to look better and better and better with every passing day……………..he is the lead actor for big budget films, walks the runway as show-stopper and has a hot, hot Kareena Kapoor as his partner. Need I say any more about one of the best transformation in Bollywood history.  

Now

 

Shilpa Shetty

 

Before

Can you imagine our very own Shilpa Shetty looking like that in her before pic…………..I am glad that we get to see her in the ‘After’ avatar now. If I had looked at her earlier pic, I could have never imagined that this young girl would go on to become one of the most stylish woman with oodles of sex-appeal. Must say one thing, that Shilpa has worked hard not just on her bod, but her hair, her clothes, her face and her attitude………….Love every bit of it on her. She started out with a small role in ‘Baazigar’, was paired opposite all the famous actors on-screen but that did not do much for her image in the filmi dunia. She wore bright jhintak colours with bad hair and equally bad make-up. People said that her days in Bollywood were as good as over.Then in comes ‘Big Brother’ and her whole world changes…………….. thanks to designer-friend Tarun Tahiliani, the ugly duckling became a Swan at last. Offers stated pouring for Shilpa – fashion week, movies, launches, premiere, IPL team……………she was all over the place. I am glad that good things came her way since she is one of the soft-spoken and ever-smiling celebrities that I have come across. She deserved her long-awaited success.

After

    

Salman Khan  

Salman Khan in his earlier days

 Yes the young man in the pic above is Salman Khan during the earlier 1990s………………all bones, no muscles. Salman Khan started out in the movie industry as a simple guy you would love to take home to meet your parents……………..but over the years he has become a dread you would fear to take in front of your parents……………………please do not take my comments to your heart. But this ‘Dabangg’ has revolutionized so many fashion mantras among the common people, be it with his attitude, his style, his clothes, his sunglasses, hosting a reality show or his humanitarian project ‘Being Human’…………………………..he always does it in style. Over the years one has seen Salman turn from a gawky looking young fella to a Macho man fit for our Indian version of ‘He-man’. Many controversies shook his life, despite the setbacks Salman always focused on evolving his looks for his roles, taking up newer challenges. One thing commendable about him is that he never followed the herd…………………the crowd came wherever he went. He might not be my top favourite stars, but I still love to see him host ‘Big Boss’ and his movies………………maybe that’s why the phrase exists……You can love me or hate me, but can never ignore me. That is the reason why Sallu bhai features on the list of ‘Best Bollywood Transformations’.

Twinkle Khanna

Twinkle while starting out in Bollywood

 Twinkle Khanna is the daughter of Legendary actor Rajesh Khanna and beautiful actress Dimple Kapadia…………….know though she is also known as Akshay Kumar’s better half but Twinkle has established herself as a ‘Fashionista’ making to the ‘Best Dressed List’ all over the leading mags. Amazingly Twinkle never looked this good, the photo above does prove that to quite an extent. Curly big hair, sleepy eyes, frumpy baggy clothes never did much good for the lady. Today I can swear by her choice of outfits, hairstyle and accesories……………she looks like a million dollar buck. Thank God for the transformation, we have a ‘Diva’ on this list.

Sridevi

 
Before

We have seen Sridevi since past 30 years go from an ugly duckling to a glam queen of Bollywood to finally becoming a ‘Graceful Swan’………………..I prefer her look in her 40s than her in earlier years. Long gone are the days of flashy lipsticks, huge bindis,traditional  kanjeevarams, ghajra as hair decoration, big jhumkas and in comes ‘Herve Leger’ outfits, chiffon designer sarees, subtle diamond jewellery and Jimmy choos to match her outfits. Sridevi has never looked better since she started out in Bollywood……………………can’t wait for her to make a comeback in movies. But she does make to my list of ‘Most Amazing Transformation’. She makes me believe that ‘Life does begin in your 40s’…………….at least fashionwise.

    • You know something she was very much on the list but was unable to get her earlier pic which would give her.full front face. Hence had to drop her but I will be soon doing a write up only on her style in the coming month.

  2. Interesting read. I wish I could make myself write such good posts onto my own blog. It is hard.
