December 28, 2016 14:45 IST

Presenting this year's most stylish looks ever.

As 2016 gives way to 2017, we take a look at the best Indian celeb looks of the year.

Topping the list was, of course, a Bollywood-Hollywood star, who hit a sartorial high this year with her delightful wardrobe choices.

A few elegant men made it to our list, one of them al 60 year old who experiments with his look (yup, we are keeping you guessing).

Pregnant women find a special place here -- proving that maternity fashion is mainstreaming.

Let's rewind and take a look at 2016's trending outfits.

Anil Kapoor

Sonam Kapoor

Sonam added a fresh take to the traditional outfit. Take the red-and-white sari for instance, which she wore to Bipasha Basu and Karan Grover's wedding.
