Fashion's blue eyed girl

Priyanka Chopra

The former beauty queen's acting prowess and sartorial choices have made her a household name both in Bollywood and Hollywood.
Every time she's walked the red carpet, the actor has slayed it with her stellar looks.

For the love of saris

Sushma Swaraj

The Queen of style

Kangana Ranaut

The Ministry of refreshing dressing

Arundati Roy

IMAGE: Author Arundhati Roy is stylish in a minimalist yet impactful way. She can make simple clothes (like the one she wore on this cover, above) look so stunning, just as she can impressively carry off her salt-and-pepper look.

Crusader of simplicity

Nandita Das

Pop princess who is pushing the boundaries of fashion

Anushka Manchanda

IMAGE: Singer Anushka Manchanda is a pro when it comes to dressing casually -- you'll mostly spot her in a pair of rugged denims and a loose, oversized T-shirt. She's the one who can dress down -- or up -- without much fuss and still look stunning.

The one with the most sought after wardrobe

Nita Ambani

IMAGE: Chairperson and founder of Reliance Foundation Nita Ambani seems to have reversed her ageing -- she keeps looking younger and more enviable with each passing day.
Full marks to her for having some brilliant fashion moments -- she has successfully established an identity of her own -- at work and in her dress sense.

Newest contender in the style stakes

Dimple Yadav

IMAGE: UP CM Akhilesh Yadav's wife is one of those few politicians who takes great pains about dressing up in some gorgeous saris during campaigns, rallies, etc. Dimple's collection of handloom saris are the sort we'd love to steal.

The star of her show

Shaili Chopra

IMAGE: Raise your hands if you have ever wanted to wear your hair like the way author and journalist Shaili Chopra does? She's proof of the fact that journalists don't necessarily need to carry jholas and be dressed in khadi. She's clearly not one to shy from a good styling challenge.
