Celebrity stylists are the backbone of Bollywood fashion.
From Deepika Padukone to Paris Hilton, every icon needs a stylist. Here’s some of India’s finest celebrity stylists that made a mark in 2022.
Behind every fashionable star is a talented and hardworking stylist. From red carpet dramatic looks to putting together a series of looks for movie promotions, they have done it all. This year, every celebrity stylist has put their best foot forward and taken on challenges to ensure their star looks the part.
They are responsible for setting trends and also at times end up being on the receiving end when the star gets trolled for an outfit he or she has worn. From curating outfits, to mixing and matching jewellery to fixing a last minute stitch, there’s a lot a stylist does and to celebrate their work, here’s celebrating the best stylemakers who make the impossible possible for your favourite stars.
