Since this one does not come as a surprise, we thought we would just put it out there first. Sonam is without a doubt, one of the best dressed celebrities in Bollywood. All the credit goes to baby sister Rhea. Not only is she one of India’s leading stylists, she also a producer, having produced and won several awards for Veere Di Wedding. And yes, she was the lead stylist for the movie. Rhea Kapoor headed a 10-member team to curate different looks for each protagonist. If you’ve seen the movie, you know that every look was worth drooling over. "When we started off, the brief was to create a young and contemporary wardrobe for each of these women. In the second stage, we had to take into account the style of each character - their outfits had to be unique to their personalities in the film," said Rhea Kapoor. Apart from Sonam Kapoor, Rhea has also styled Kareen Kapoor Khan and Janhvi Kapoor.

Nitasha Gaurav, a former fashion editor at Femina, and currently the woman behind Ranveer Singh’s quirky looks. She has styled Ranveer for the past six years. She told the quint: “He loves colour, he is flamboyant and extremely confident as a person. He is not looking for approval. And that immediately sets him free in a way that you can't even imagine. He wears what he is drawn to. He likes print on print on print. He is almost childlike, actually! How children are drawn to color and bright vibrant things? And things that cause a degree of excitement when you see them. Even he responds to bright, cheerful and happy prints in the same way.” Ranveer Singh is the only actor who would be able to attempt something like this and actually pull it off.
