Top Ten Best Dressed Women of India

In my best dressed list, I have included women who belong to different age groups.  One common thing about the older women in the list is that they have each figured out what look suits them the best and they choose the clothes and the accessories that they are comfortable with to enhance that look.  Maybe it comes from being comfortable in their own skin. (All photos are from Google images)

                                                                 Best Dressed

                                                                             No 10
                                                                     Poonam Sinha


Sonakshi didn't make it to the list but her mom did. Very few women wear fresh flowers in their hair these days and manage to make them look glamorous - she does. The bindi maybe too big but she has a style very much her own.
                                                                           No  9                                                                    

                                                                    Dolly Thakore

From a news anchor on Doordarshan in the eighties to now,  Dolly has transitioned well.  She is always impeccably dressed - whether wearing a saree or something else.

                                                                        No. 8


Her daughter-in-laws didn't make it to my best dressed list, but she did. Arguably the first mom of Indian industry, she is always very color coordinated. With a handbag that matches her saree and just the right amount of jewelry- diamonds or pearls- that reflect the same color, she has figured out a look that works for her.
                                                                      No  7                                                    
                                                                   Lara Dutta


Since getting married, Lara's style has become more elegant. Whether she is wearing Indian clothes or western, I feel she bears in mind her new status and dresses accordingly.
                                                                      No 6                                                                    

                                                                Madhoo Shah


I like the way she dresses. She tries to wear different things - not always successfully - but in the end manages to look good. 

                                                                         No 5
                                                                   Sonia Gandhi


I admire the way Sonia Gandhi has made saree her own. But of course she had a great role model in her mother -in-law who was one of the first women to show India how to wear cottons well.

                                                                        No 4

                                                                  Simi Garewal


She does a good blend of eastern and western fashion and always dresses very age appropriate.

                                                                       No.  3

                                                                  Sonam Kapur


Her fashion sense is very youthful - just right for her age. I have not seen any photos of her where she is not dressed tastefully.

                                                                                 No. 2
                                                                       Karishma Kapur


Very few Indian women know how to wear both Indian and western fashions well. Karishma does. She does a very good mix of both.                
                                                                            No. 1

                                                                   Chanda Kochchar

When it comes to effortless style no one, in my view,  comes close to Chanda Kochchar. Perhaps it is her job and title -  CEO of a major financial organization, that add glamour to her understated elegance but she always looks classy - with just the right amount of diamonds - never gold.  Plus she knows how to wear colors well. I can't say enough about her style. She was the inspiration for this list.
