The Karisma Kapoor we have come to know today is the culmination of a long and successful Bollywood journey. Her style now is impeccable with clean, crisp lines and form-fitting silhouettes. Her signature style is very modern and contemporary yet rooted in the classics. When she chooses to dress in traditional Indian wear, she turns to regal outfits with well-chosen accessories. But….. her style was not always like this. Her debut in 1991, and the following years saw the actor in loud colours, bold prints and frilly dresses. Her beauty styling consisted of big brows, kohl-rimmed eyes and a front fringe with ribbons in her hair. Scroll down and see the actor’s beauty evolution through the years…

Her makeup changed ever so slightly during ‘Judwaa’, and got more chic. It turned more matte and she wore her hair sleek and straight.

She began looking like the person we know today during ‘Dil Toh Pagal Hai’. Sleeker hair teamed with makeup that revolved around nude-brown shades.

The girly ponytails briefly made a comeback in ‘Haseena Maan Jayegi’, but in a more coming-of-age avatar. The makeup remained minimalistic.

She began looking more and more like what we now recognise as her ultra-chic style with barely-there makeup and flawless porcelain skin in ‘Fiza’.

We think her personal style really began to express itself after we stopped seeing her in movies. Classic, elegant makeup with no-fuss hairstyles became her go-tos.

She looks more resplendent as the years go by, wouldn’t you agree?
We are in love with the actor’s style evolution. From girly curls, ribbons and that wide, doe-eyed newbie to a legit style icon, oozing elegance and class, she remains inimitably, Karisma Kapoor.
