Kareena Kapoor's vivacity is well translated in her clothes.
After playing the sober Naaz in J P Dutta's Refugee, her next film Mujhe Kucch Kehna Hai portrayed the actress in a glamorous light.Cool colourful hipsters, polo neck jerseys and short skirts with side slits became a rage with teenagers.
Be it in salwar kameezes, the intricate amprapali suits of Asoka or the ultra hip costumes of Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, Bebo, as she is affectionately called, is always wearing her best.
Friend and fashion guru Manish Malhotra who designed her wardrobe in Mujhe Kucche Kehna Hai, Asoka and Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham says, "She can carry off anything that she wants to. She is someone who can look good in jeans and in an Indian outfit."
A look at Kareena's collection:
Mujhe Kucch Kehna Hai---
Asoka---In the period drama, Asoka, Kareena's character Kaurwaki had a certain recklessness. This aspect of her role was brought out via her look, where she sported body art, frizzy hairdos, kohl-lined eyes and amrapali costumes.
Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham---Flamboyant furry jackets and scarves, skimpy tops, tight leather hipsters, tinted glares and tons of attitude went into what Kareena called, 'something never seen on screen before.'
Mujhse Dosti Karoge---Kareena's look in Mujhse Dosti Karoge was not an extraordinary departure from her earlier Yaadein, Ajnabee or Mujhe Kucch Kehna Hai. But she looked splendid in Western attire in the first half and ethnic wear in the second half. Witness her pink backless costume in the Sanwali si ek ladki number.
Jeena Sirf Merre Liye---In her latest film Jeena Sirf Mere Liye, Kareena tones down the hot girl pattern seen in K3G and MDK. In bell-sleeved tops, funky skirts, boot cut denims and pastel churidars, Kareena plays cute and the coquette with equal elan.
