Tracing Radhika Apte’s complete style evolution
A glamorous transformation
Radhika Apte’s Bollywood journey began in 2015, with movies like Badlapur, Hunterrr and Manjhi – The Mountain Man, and only three years later, she has the country’s undivided attention. Her roles in Netflix’s Lust Stories, Sacred Games and Ghoul have seen her emerge as a force to be reckoned with. And she’s truly come into her own — today, the actor looks poised and confident. As her performances have evolved, so has Radhika’s sartorial style — an evolution that calls for a retrospective.
Prepare for a long but interesting journey as we take you through Radhika’s transformation — starting from 2015, when the actor donned simple dresses in both solid hues and prints, all the way to today, where we see her rocking designer ensembles by the likes of Bodice, Manish Malhotra, Vivienne Westwood, Gaurav Gupta and more.
Courtesy the work of celebrity make-up artist (and Radhika’s best friend) Clover Wootton, Radhika’s entire look comes together wonderfully, each time. And, given the unpredictable fashion choices she’s been making lately, we can’t wait to see what’s next.
