If you thought Bollywood celebrities wake up looking like they’re ready to walk down a red carpet, you’d be dead wrong. Barring a few stars (Sonam Kapoor is a walking, talking style encyclopaedia), most of your favourite actresses rely heavily on their guardian angels (AKA celebrity stylists) to keep them from making a faux pas that would have forever tarnished their image.
Take for instance, Tanya Ghavri, who styles a mini battalion of A-listers including Kareena Kapoor Khan, Karisma Kapoor, Jacqueline Fernandez, Katrina Kaif, Jhanvi Kapoor, Freida Pinto, Pooja Hegde and more. Ami Patel is another renowned name in the industry who is the creative genius behind best dressed actresses like Alia Bhatt, Priyanka Chopra, Kangana Ranaut, Sania Mirza, Sridevi Kapoor and Athiya Shetty.
And if you’ve always wondered how Deepika Padukone and Shraddha Kapoor always look so fabulous, it’s all thanks to Shaleena Nathani. Parineeti Chopra, Shilpa Shetty, Huma Qureshi have Sanjana Batra to credit; while Sonakshi Sinha looks to Mohit Rai when in dire need. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Esha Gupta turns to Mohit’s partner, Aastha Sharma.
