There isn't much that hasn't been said about Bhumi Pednekar's fat-to-fit story (she famously risked gaining 23 kg for her debut in Dum Laga Ke Haisha). But not enough has been said about the actress's style evolution since then.

Pednekar, who had a stellar 2017 with hits like Toilet: Ek Prem Katha and Shubh Mangal Saavdhan, seems to up her style game with every appearance on the red carpet (check out her ethereal look at the Virushka reception) and off it.

Thanks to magazines that have featured her on their cover, her impressive evolution has been well-documented.

With Pednekar appearing on the cover of Verve this month, we look back at her journey.
