Shweta Tiwari fans, get ready to eat your hearts out.
Shweta's daughter Palak Tiwari is racing ahead in the style stakes in the Palak Fans vs Shweta Fans tournament.
Palak is the subject of major-major social media infatuation among her three million followers. Every pic she posts causes a flurry of finger movement nation-wide, as admirers hurry to like her latest beauteous avatar. Palak Tunnel Syndrome is going to be a thing now for the phalanges (meaning, for anatomy ignoramuses, finger bones).
Those of us not playing the Ma-Beti socials game, can still pick up a few fashion tips from the budding actress...

Vermillion, white, sugar, spice and all things nice -- that's Palak for you.
She looks a tad like Archie's Veronica Lodge in her preppy outfit and cascade of hair.

Do the sad-looking folks sitting in the bus stop behind know the cheerful sight they are missing?
Fashion Point to Note: A black jumpsuit can easily trump an LBD should it want to.

Even in a room filled with neutrals in a neutrally-dress Palak is a girl on fire.

Instead looking for a sequin dress go shopping for shimmering separates.

There are still a few take-home tips: Style your hair before popping into the water. And always wear a little light make-up to the pool, but don't do any underwater or cannonball dives. Else stock your makeup almirah with waterproof stuff.
