Ananya Panday Is The New Fashion ‘It Girl’ Of Bollywood. There’s Plenty Of Proof

Ananya Panday

The reins of sartorial dictation (at least here, in India) are more often than not, clutched tightly in the hands of Bollywood’s finest. Enter Ananya Panday – the star on the rise, the serial chiller (as per deets divulged in her Instagram bio) & industry’s newest trend setter. Her growing repute isn’t all talk no substance. Especially on the styling grounds.

If Ananya Panday’s glossy Instagram grid is to be believed, the 24-year-old star knows her fashion ABCDs well (due credit to stylist Meagan Concessio). From acing the six yard drape on festive celebrations to convincing us to bet our bucks on the denim on denim resurgence, she’s had all of us in a style grip.

So, here’s why we think Ananya Panday is Bollywood’s new fashion ‘it girl.’

Crescent Confluence

For the Lokmat Most Stylish Awards, Ananya Panday let her Tarun Tahiliani beige embellished lehenga do the talking. Characterized by a distinctive halter cutout choli, a ruffle hemmed skirt & a scalloped edged dupatta, this unconventional ensemble was equal parts fresh & visually delightful.

Pearly Whites

LBDs are sure great, but a well cut, sculpt white bodycon is all you need to spruce things a bit. Unpretentious yet head turning, this Nykaa Fashion X Revolve mini dress in white or eggshell or ivory (blame it on the lighting), is a rather interesting piece, especially with the furry fringes branching out of the bust cuppings. We’re digging this. A lot.

Pick Up Limes

An easily recognizable Abu Jani & Sandeep Khosla creation, this lehenga from the house’s Warli Collection features a sequinned skirt & a dramatic strapped blouse in a sombre green aqua hue. Embellished with spiky chaandbalis & a maang tika, this one’s a clear winner in the festive lineup.

Power Punch

And she aces the androgynous mandate too? Here, Ananya Panday opted for a pantsuit from Milan based label Del Core & chunky jewel layering, courtesy Swarovski. Given the unorthodox cut & design of the garment, this frontrunner gives ample insight into the Liger actress’ penchant to experiment & deliver.

Sheer Solitude

And Tarun Tahiliani makes his second entry on this list. Decked up for the recently concluded Diwali celebrations, Ananya Panday is lensed here, wearing the moon dust saree with delectable hand-embroidery & an ornate bustier encrusted with Swarovski crystals. Spotlight on the choker by Diamantina Fine Jewels. The ideal additive to complement the sari.

Denim Dalliance

It’s giving Britney from the early 2000s & we’re here for every bit of this revival. This one’s cherry picked from her vault surrounding the Liger promotion days. Wearing a denim co-ord set by the label Source Unknown, the slicked back ponytail & hoops are reinterpreted casuals at its finest. Brownie points for the sneakers.

Achromatic Ascension

A glorious offering from the house of Manish Malhotra, this Mijwan set makes a solid case for wearing black during festivities (only if the mothership approves). Embroidered with Chikankari threads, the tonal cape adds a whole lot of dimension & character to the ensemble altogether. And kudos to the scanty accessorizing. Suits the star perfectly.
