We first caught a glimpse of Nimrat Kaur lighting up our TV screens when she playfully licked chocolate off her fingers while stuck in a traffic jam. So naturally, we were ecstatic when she went on from theatre to TV advertisements and finally lit up the big screen with ‘The Lunchbox’ followed by internationally acclaimed thriller ‘Homeland,’ opposite Claire Danes.

Of course, there’s more to her than just magnificent acting chops; this girl’s got swell style. From her initial appearances in primarily Indian wear to her recent fashion experiments for the promotion of ‘Airlift,’ the celebrity style of Nimrat Kaur has evolved and how!

Just like her gradual foray into the limelight, Nimrat’s style began from a place of comfort. In her case, it was a safe territory of Indian wear, wavy locks and generic straight silhouettes. Seeing a great deal of the star adorned in embroidered sarees as well as in staple bright lips that go with everything, it was no doubt a look that Nimrat wore well but we wanted more. Soon enough, our wish was granted.

It all began with a swipe of lipstick. From the reds and pinks which were almost second nature by now, Nimrat slowly began to move towards more experimental shades, think mauve and coral. Along with it were the ensembles, as they started to go beyond everything we had seen her in yet. The sequins, sheer panels and abstract designs found their way into her style and that’s the moment the evolution began.

Soon, a period emerged in the timeline of Kaur’s evolution, an abashed time where no rule of fashion was too steep to conquer and that’s when the greatest point of growth was witnessed. After defining her own personal style as cool, comfortable and graceful, Nimrat stepped out of her comfort zone with a variety of new silhouettes, variations in patterns and latest fashion trends galore. Boy, were we glad to see her in wrap dresses, ruffled couture gowns and even her dear Indian wear, but now in more inventive drapes and designs. Her ascent to style icon status wouldn’t be complete without being the showstopper at Lakmé Fashion Week, for which Nimrat has played the gorgeous part for Payal Singhal amongst others.

It wouldn’t be an evolution without one in the beauty department as well. Departing from playing safe, Nimrat began experimenting with a variety of hairstyles like the regal french twist and teased curl, transforming her look completely. The glossy pink lips has moved over to the dark side with oxblood and burgundy. The simple sprightly lashes was now replaced with defined brows and sculpted cheeks.

While her style has been on the rise for while now, it was during the leg of promotions for her movie, Airlift that confirmed the evolution of her style. Form fitted shapes defined her curves, her rich brown hair was worn side-swept and sophisticated styles took over her form. The circle of style was complete. Nimrat Kaur is no longer just the international actress who is a powerhouse of talent as style icon now fits into her bio as well.
