Sonam Kapoor:: Style icon Sonam Kapoor, is known for her fashionable outfits. ‘Delhi 6’ was one of the movies which brought to light her elegance and grace on-screen. Patiala salwars, high-necked kurtis and Anarkali salwars became a huge hit after the movie and almost every woman was spotted donning one! Another movie where costumes made women go gaga, was ‘Aisha’. Fashion was an important element in the movie, moving away from chiffons chiffon saris and tight tops that were so popular in Bollywood films for the past decade. If the movie showed off high end brands like Christian Dior and Salvatore Ferragamo, one would also spot stuff from flea markets.
