In four short years, B-Town’s resident curvy beauty Sonakshi Sinha has curated a wardrobe of such drool-worthy ensembles and lovestruck fans that her status as one of India’s formidable style icons is truly elementary, my dear Watson. (No? Okay.) The lady’s all va-va-voom and we love the confidence with which she works that red carpet for all it’s worth - STOP IT SONAKSHI, YOU’RE STEALING OUR HEARTS! Deep breath in; here’s why we’ve got the hots for this babe:
Sonakshi graduated with a degree in Fashion Designing from Shreemati Nathibai Damodar Thackersey Women's University, Mumbai before Dabangging her way onto the silver screen in 2010. A beauty with brains, she even styled for Mera Dil Leke Dekho way back in 2006 before her acting debut.
Sonakshi is raking in the likes on her instagram account @aslisona, which gives us an insight into her glamorous avatar as well as the occasional sneak peek into her daily life. Brownie points for those #shamelessselfies girl, the sillier the face, the better we say!
Sonakshi’s edgy L’Officiel cover (September 2014) is testament to her gradual shift from girl-next-door to experimental diva. Her willingness to flirt with new styles is a gift that just keeps. on. giving. Her constant reinvention both on and off screen, ensures our eyes are always peeled to this lovely chameleon. And we love that she's a real woman, with real curves.
They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend but we bet our asli Sona thinks otherwise! Her best accessory is undoubtedly those trademark cascading, Rapunzel-esque locks. Having recently had the big-chop though, the sexy long bob makes her look tres chic and all grown up!
“I don't like my clothes to overpower my personality” she says, and it’s refreshing to see a Bollywood actress embracing her own tastes rather than being a mannequin to trends. She might make a fashion faux pas or two but has the courage to stand by her choices and ain’t got no time for the haters! The lady’s recently been channeling her inner Victoria Beckham style, as seen on We The People with Barkha Dutt, where Sinha took an anti size-zero stance, embracing her curves and femininity.
It’s moments like this that remind us how powerful and inspiring a woman of substance can be. So here’s to Sonakshi Sinha; may she forever shimmer in the sun-kissed horizons of Bollywood.
