Iconic is something that stays in the mind of people. No matter where you are, if you hear a keyword you can imagine a vivid picture in your mind. If i say Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, then Kajol‘s sports dresses and hair bands come to mind. If i say Basanti, then Hema Malini’s Lehenga Choli look comes to mind. Such is the power of iconic dresses or looks in the world of cinema. Let us find out about some of them.
Knotted Cropped-Top Look:
Dimple Kapadia owned this look way back in Bobby. That knotted crop top with fitted skirts and half up down hair. This look took the fashion fraternity by storm and soon every girl was flaunting it.
The Figure Hugging Suits:
Her fringes and those tight and fitted churidars made quite a style statement back then. I do not know about the churidars, but her fringes or the most infamous Sadhna cut is very much still in vogue.
Huge Embellished Anarkalis:
Madhubala in Mughal-e-Azam made them famous. They became so famous that anarkalis are a preferred choice for any family function amongst girls of all age groups. Anarkalis are evergreen and comes in all forms, designs, shapes and sizes.
The drape of the saree was truly sexy and flirty. The look was effortlessly carried by Mumtaz in the song Aj kal tere mere. This look can still be seen carried around by many women.
Taking a cue from Madhubala, Rekha in her precious jewelry, with pearl hued brocade dress looked every bit sophisticated and elegant in Umrao Jaan.
Chiffon Saree Look:
This look was staple, when a rain scene has to be shot. A chiffon saree looks ultra-glam when drenched in artificial rain of course. Sridevi wore it best in the movie Mr. India.
Purple Satin Saree:
Whenever i think of purple saree a song always comes to my mind. The song is Didi tera dewar deewana from Hum Aapke Hain Kaun, movie. I love this movie and this is one look from the movie that has stayed with the masses, ever since.
When i think of cabaret obviously Helen comes to my mind. She has done so many cabaret numbers and each one of them has stood out. She was never dull and boring and gave her own identity to every dance number.
Short Shirts with Patialas:
Those colorful short shirts or kurtis with all the more colorful patialas and a jhola bag became a staple of every girl’s wardrobe. This look was successfully carried out by Rani Mukherjee. Patialas also became a rage after Kareena sported them with long tees in Jab we met.
If you want to know how to rock sheer kurtis then watch Madhuri’s iconic movie “Dil to Pagal Hai”. Her pastel colored fitted churidars with sheer kurtis made a great style statement in the 90s, when half of the Bollywood was really bad dressed.
Black Givenchy Dress:
As Wikipedia says Audrey Hepburn’s Black Givenchy dress is one of the most iconic dresses of all times. She wore this dress in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. This is the dress that started the trend of LBD’s all around the globe.
The White Halter Dress:
This look is nothing less than legendary. Marilyn Monroe’s LWD which was a white pleated halter in the movie “The Seven Year Itch” is the most recreated look of all times.
