There’s more to a best-dressed list than exclusive labels and statement bling. There’s an art involved that transcends fashion into style, and being able to couple that with an individual's personality is what the job of a stylist is all about. Craft, taste and truly being in the know are the magic ingredients that go into every look of a celebrity, and their stylists are involved in the process from the very beginning: right from understanding their taste and body shape, to making their look memorable and iconic.
 

Tanya Ghavri for Kareena Kapoor Khan

Tanya Ghavri for Kareena Kapoor Khan

Kareena Kapoor Khan, the face of Lakmé, certainly has had a remarkable style-evolution, and one name to applaud for that journey is none other than mega talent-house Tanya Gharvi. She strikes an interesting balance between Kareena’s minimalist sensibilities and her chart-buster star image by giving her the most opulent designs and keeps jewellery to a minimum.

Anaita Shroff Adajania for Deepika Padukone

Anaita Shroff Adajania for Deepika Padukone

That Deepika won hearts in her first appearance, few will deny, but that she roared with confidence, style and panache post blockbuster Cocktail, now that no one will dispute. And while we can credit that largely to the actor herself, it would injustice to sideline Vogue’s very own Anaita Shroff Adajania. Forget just on cellulite, whether it’s airport sightings in a pair of skinny-jeans or trailer launches in twin-sets--when Shroff’s work is at play, Deepika Padukone leaves us floored, time after time.

That PC makes even the most layered designs look comfy as a pair of PJs is no doubt a feat, but that her stylist, Ami Patel, understands that so well, now that’s an achievement. Never failing to bring her carefree, don’t-kill-my-vibe tude to her style, Ami Patel brings us the most closeted designers and labels. Stylespiration: when she styled a pair of pointed heels with beaded detailing with a basic tee, making the actor look super stylish without having to compromise on the her preference for simplicity and effortlessness in her look.

The very talented Allia Al Rufai styles the fresh-faced Anushka Sharma. With a band of interesting silhouettes, colour palettes and labels, the stylist has had a role to play in cementing Anushka Sharma’s name in the industry as the one to watch out for. From award-ceremony staple Roberto Cavalli gowns and Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla anarkalis to more experimental looks courtesy Rohit Gandhi + Rahul Khanna--Rufia has shown us the chameleon Sharma can be, and we for one, aren’t complaining.

Sakshi Mehraa for Sonakshi Sinha

Sakshi Mehraa for Sonakshi Sinha

Sakshi Mehraa successfully convinced the actor to change her wardrobe and give way to sexier preferences. So now, right from bodycons to crop tops and trendy sari blouses, Sonakshi experiments like none other. And hey, did we mention that Sakshi and Sonakshi knew each other since college? Yes, well we guess that worked in the stylist’s favour to understand Sonakshi’s style better, don’t you think so?
