As news of her untimely demise filtered in, we knew we lost not just a supremely talented actor but also a timeless style icon. Sridevi, veteran actor of the Hindi film industry and the paragon of style, is dearly missed as she succumbed to a cardiac arrest yesterday. Fit at 54 and always keeping it stylish and graceful, Sridevi set benchmarks for many. Phenomenons like her, leave behind inspiration for generations to come. FabFit casts a glance at some of her recent appearances.
Sridevi: The Diva in Indian Attire
Synonymous with grace and subtlety, she pulled off the Indian outfits with elan. Wearing Manish Malhotra most times, her manner of pairing the right hairstyle with appropriate jewels and outfit made her exemplify the elegant Indian look. Be it a Banarasi dupatta outfit for a wedding or sarees in elegant chiffons, Sridevi always did it right.
Sridevi: The Diva in Indo-Western
It is difficult to pin-down the greats, and such was the case with Sridevi’s style too. Exemplifying diversity in style, she carried Indo-Western looks with equal magnificence. While wearing Indo-western outfits of a neutral colour palette, she kept her lips bold with a dramatic red and eyes kohl-rimmed. Letting hair loose with a straightened look for a semi-formal occasion or opting for the quintessential side-part bun, she has left behind a statement that is beyond compare.
Sridevi: The Diva in western Outfit
From her style we learn how detailing matters. Keeping nails and lips bright complements her monotone western outfit. Adding curls to the straightened hair adds another hint of playfulness to the overall outfit in single tone. The straight-up blue of her dress is broken by the drama added by the red nails, maroon lips and the curled up hair tips. Ofcourse those oversized glasses too do their trick!
All that the world can do now is to piece together shards of memories of this beautiful lady we once had amidst us. We can pay her tribute by remembering her iconic performances in Mr. India, Chandni, Lamhe, English Vinglish and also the style statement that she has left behind. She will remain in everyone’s hearts forever!
