Yeh kaali kaali aankhein, ye gore gore gaal!
Kajol! Yes that’s the name which crossed our minds while humming this song. One of the powerful female actor Kajol who made her acting debut in 1992 with Bekhudi and then gave her first hit Baazigar. The actor is known for her acting skills but was quite defamed for her fashion sense. But her journey from being a fashion disaster to a fashion diva gets her 10 on 10.
These images are collection of Kajol’s appearances in award functions. Where she is very much in her “I don’t care about how I look” avatar. She pretty much believed in comfort and in her dear friend Manish Malhotra. She once also mentioned in an interview that- “when I was acting I was always told what to wear. Only later I realised it was because I never really had an opinion on what I should be wearing”.
2007: Black and white saree teamed with semi precious red danglers at Star Screen Awards.
2008: Earthy shade suit at Apsara Awards.
2009: Multi-colored suit at Stardust Awards.
2010: Bright multi-colored saree at Filmfare.
2011: Gaudy jacket style suit at stardust Awards.
Probably she was a blue pill then! She has been pinpointed for her bad dressing sense quite a lot of times by fashion police.
But only after Triporna Majumder started experimenting with different colors and her hair she became a fashion diva. Triporna is a celebrity stylist. Apart from Kajol she has also styled Vidya Balan, Amrita Rao and Kajal Agarwal too. Triporna said- “At the time when I met Kajol she had her favourites in place and did not want to budge from them. Like she would only look at black among everything that I would line up for her and stick to only neutral shades for lips. Gradually I started trying new things choosing fresh silhouettes brighter colors and I played a lot with her hair. It worked each time for us as her face was receptive to every kind of hairdo her skin shone in all new colors that she had earlier stayed away from”.
Kajol showed immense transformation effortlesly. Earlier she would stick to Indian outfits by her dear friend Manish Malhotra but now she can be seen wearing a range of looks from different designers. From Sabyasachi to Prabal Gurung, her sarees are no longer usual Manish Malhotra.
The images above are the evidence of her transformation.
2012: Strapless gown by Ayesha Depala on Red carpet of Vogue beauty.
2013: One shoulder dress by Nandita Mahtani for 59th Idea Filmfare Awards.
2014: Sparkling suit at HT most Stylish Awards. Something really unique and risky to be worn on the red carpet. But yes it slayed.
2015: Shantanu and Nikhil pink net gown at Filmfare.

With no doubt now Kajol has managed to make space for her in the list of fashion divas. She forms a great team with her stylist. She can now be seen in fashion-forward outfits.
