We chart Indian actress Deepika Padukone’s red carpet journey, from over embellished saris to Prabal Gurung gowns on the red carpet.

Deepika Padukone Ram Leela fashion

We’ve been following Deepika Padukone‘s style since her film debut in 2007, and like many Bollywood actresses, her sartorial choices have greatly improved over the past couple of years. From heavy makeup and ill-fitting dresses, Deepika (with the help of a stylist) has graduated to wearing gowns and saris by Sabyasachi, Naeem Khan, Dolce Gabbana, Gauri and Nainika and Mary Katrantzou – making her one of the most exciting Indian actresses to watch on the red carpet.

 

Take a trip down memory lane and witness Deepika’s style evolution from her film debut in 2007 to the red carpet master she’s become.
