In Bollywood, Kangana Ranaut is known for her style sense. She has an effortless air about her way of dressing. Whether she decides to dress it down with loose jeans and a tee or wear something formal, she always turns out trendy. She’s one of the few mainstream actresses who steps out with minimum make up and has also learned to work her curly hair to her benefit, again with minimum styling.
