The Rangeela stunner turns 40 today, February 4.

Credited with bringing back the sensual city girl back on screen with much success, Urmila Matondkar has been Bollywood's most spirited leading lady of her time.

Off screen too, the star of films like Rangeela and Judaai is quite the head turner.

A look at this gorgeous birthday girl's most fashionable avatars.

Fashion week fabulous 

A fashion week regular, Urmila was quite a draw in her simple yet exceedingly cute lace AND dress as she arrived for the last edition of Lakme Fashion Week in August, 2013.

This Anita Dongre maxi dress is a total win on so many counts, we may have to make a list.

Just the right shade of orange, the perfect flair and the neckline make this comfortable-looking dress seem like a dream come true.

Which is not to say that many people would be able to carry it off as effortlessly as Urmila does.

Urmila sets off the casual look of her white ruched dress by teaming it with gold accessories -- a shiny metallic clutch and strappy heels for a night event.

Wish we got to see this combination more often.

Dhoti pants and asymmetrical tops aren't necessarily for everybody but Urmila's willingness to up the ante works really well for her.

We are so loving those sparkly heels on her too.

Urmila made quite an entrance at a recent celebrity wedding reception in a breathtaking Manish Malhotra anarkali, wavy hair and colour coordinated jewelery.

As we always say, if it looks like you're wearing the anarkali and not the other way round, you've spot on with the look.

It's kind of like a prom dress but look how good the colour looks on her skin tone!
