Every lust-worthy designer bag in Jhanvi Kapoor’s closet

Hermès for days

Sridevi is no fashion slouch, and it stands to reason that she passed on her sartorial gifts to her daughters, Jhanvi and Khushi as well. And blame it on the millennial need for instant gratification, but 20-year-old Jhanvi isn’t waiting for her actual big screen debut to begin making inroads in tinsel town. While Karan Johar flips a coin and decides which star kid to hand out a big break to next, Jhanvi has been quietly, and assuredly, punching in her presence on every best-dressed list available.

Her ascension to the next big thing is backed up by a healthy appetite for designer handbags, Hermès and Chanel being her partners in crime. We took stock of the many, many luxury labels dotting her closet and here’s what we have to report.

5 statement bags we’d love to steal from Jhanvi Kapoor

While her wedding closet has been unofficially sponsored by Manish Malhotra, Jhanvi's off-duty look is dominated by crop tops and her signature Goyard Saint Louis tote. Roomy enough to stash everything in, including probably a backup outfit reserved for run-ins with the paparazzi, it isn’t hard to see how Jhanvi landed on this winner. 

When it comes to statement Hermès bags, Jhanvi doesn’t discriminate. From the classic two-toned Birkins to the cherry red Kellys, there’s room for everyone in her airport wardrobe. 

When your parents are the crème of the film fraternity, your uniform involves Chanel quilted bags. Jhanvi took her tan sling to the movies for the Mirzya screening, but ensures that her classic black number regularly sees the light of the day (and the lens of a camera) too. 

She may have lost the lead in Student of the Year 2 to Sarah Ali Khan, but Jhanvi Kapoor won’t be making any concessions in the best dressed lists. The 20-year-old peppers her monochrome airport outings with a colourful pick from Fendi’s Strap You offering. The beige works with most colours in the wardrobe, the geometric detailing on the strap keeps things playful. What’s not to like? 

Jhanvi and Khushi: Bollywood’s own Kendall and Kylie?

 New recruits Jhanvi and Khushi Kapoor have become bona fide Instagram celebrities already, even before the first movie offer comes in the mail. Here’s how they step out in style always.

The late superstar Sridevi's daughters, Janhvi and Khushi, are bona fide Instagram celebrities already, thanks to their insane style cred. We dare you to tell us that this little black-and-white snap isn't giving you lowkey Kardashian vibes already.

Like any good sister duo, they don their designer threads together and then share the limelight together. Note the safe arm's length distance; no jostling for space in the front camera for a cramped selfie. These are two individuals who have enough faith in themselves, and in their father's taste in real estate, to fan out over the room and still command equal attention. 

While Janhvi's idea of sheer is a graphic number by Temperley London...

Together they stand, in sickness and in health. And in the faux fur checkout queue.

To conclude, all that glitters may not be gold. But it is definitely the photogenic Kapoor clan.

Being the close-knit pair that they are, they test-drive the same trend together. High-waisted pants for deux, please.

We swear, they couldn't be more co-ordinated if they lugged around a colour-coded binder with an hour-by-hour inventory of the perfect twinning outfits.

Needless to say, that good taste in clothes runs to their choice in friends as well: Manish Malhotra has taken both the Kapoor daughters under his wing. That's the cast of the next two Student of the Year instalments right there, Karan Johar. Might as well relieve your casting director of his duties.

Khushi is glad to give feminine florals a whirl.
