There’s no denying that most fashion trends in India have been greatly influenced by what our Bollywood heroines choose to wear. Young girls and women in India are more likely to go for a particular outfit if they see their favourite actress flaunting it on the silver screen. This video will breeze you through seven decades of Bollywood fashion history in less than three minutes to give you an idea of how style trends in India have evolved.

From the sari with short, puff-sleeved blouses worn by Nargis in the black and white 50s era to the bold see-through look rocked by stars like Deepika Padukone today, Bollywood fashion sure seems to have come a long way.

 

The video also does a good job of reminding us of the influence yesteryear beauties like Zeenat Aman with her hippie Dum Maaro Dum look and Dimple Kapadia in her iconic polka dot dress from Bobby have had in shaping our sense of aesthetics.
