Some Bollywood ladies are born beautiful, some expertly groomed themselves to look pretty right from their debut, and then there are a few who surprised with their new-found looks. Here’s a list of celebrities who’ve had mind-blowing transformations.
1. Vidya Balan – Hum Paanch to Oooh la la
Bringing comic relief to the mundane lives of people in the 90s, Vidya Balan’s geeky and awkward character in Hum Paanch is what we most love her for. Now, sari-clad and slaying the red carpet, she’s no longer bespectacled and shy.
Breaking stereotypes and portraying refreshing characters, Vidya Balan brings more than fashion and beauty to the screen – she oozes panache.
2. Kangana Ranaut – The Gangster becomes the Queen
Kangana Ranaut went from the newcomer to the headline-making brave woman we know and love. Stirring up conversations and emotions, both on and off the screen, she’s just as beautiful in her new avatar.
Discarding her thin, pencilled-on and sharp brows, Kangana’s settled for a softer and more natural look. Her hair has undergone a noticeable taming session. Despite our love for her wild hair, we’re digging the fresh look too! She’s sure to continue surprising and entertaining us as always.
3. Kareena Kapoor Khan – Refugee to Begum
Kareena Kapoor Khan has moved from her Refugee avatar to her regal Begum elegance. Known for her physical fitness routine, she gives us total fitness goals! Having discarded her brown lipsticks, she’s moved on to a more colourful palette.
Giving her hair its natural dark colour back has also done wonders to her latest look. Dark and luscious kohl-rimmed eyes are her signature style. Kareena, we’d love to take grooming tips from you any day!
4. Priyanka Chopra – Miss World goes to Hollywood
Nearly two decades ago, Priyanka Chopra was crowned Miss World. And from her first movie in Tamil, Thamizhan, all the way to her upcoming Hollywood release, she’s been an inspiration for her transformation.
Switching from her basic Indian beauty look to a more global fashion sense has done a lot to her image. Dropping the thin and rounded brows, she’s opted for natural and sharp ones instead. PC, we’re all for your current glam look!
5. Anushka Sharma – From Baraats to Bobs
‘Shaking off her girl-next-door look, Anushka Sharma has effortlessly shifted into a more urban sense of style. Tossing aside her girly choice in clothing and make-up, she’s expanded her wardrobe to include more feminine and elegant looks instead.
Snipping her long hair to a delicious bob instead, Anushka managed to turn heads and stop hearts at the same time. And now she sports chignons and slicked back hairdos that we’re gaga about. We sure are looking forward to her next transformational project!
