Long before red carpet fashion became customary for Bollywood’s leading ladies, Rekha oozed goddess-like glamour through her perfectly accentuated eyes, glossy red lips and lustrous black hair.

While today’s fashionistas rely on designers, stylists and high-end brands to spice things up, the star of Ghar, Umrao Jaan and Khubsoorat created her own signature style draped in a gorgeous collection of resplendent kanjeevarams accessorized by gold and mogras.

Truth be told, every single Rekha appearance is an exciting exercise in drama and razzle-dazzle.

Bollywood’s enduring enigma turns 59 on October 10. Here are, dear readers, ten of her most sparkling sari-clad avatars to marvel over, just for you.

Ornate sari, glittery potli purse, striking baubles, impeccable make-up, not a hair out of place, Rekha is the A to Z of luminosity.
