When it comes to Indian wear, style watchers can pick out a quintessential Deepika Padukone look with a blindfold placed over both eyes. Indeed, over the years she has spent in front of the lens, the star has managed to hone her tried-and-tested template to perfection.
There is the sari—crisply draped over a high-necked blouse and edged with a statement choker. And then there is the hair—slicked back into a high-shine bun and serenaded with smoky eyes. Every now and then, you’ll catch a faint murmur from fans wanting to see something new but when served with her signature flair, the formula never feels formulaic. Padukone clearly understands the enduring elegance of a timeless classic, and it stands to reason that her red carpet wardrobe would follow suit with impactful minimalist gowns.
Make no mistake, Padukone understands the merit of an unfussed, striking silhouette—as evidenced in the statuesque velvet gown she chose from Gauri and Nainika’s atelier for the promotions of ‘83. And yet, for those events when she has the eyes of the world on her, the star refuses to play by her own rules.
Cue the frothy tulle confections that have won her vote for her most iconic outings on the red carpet. Festooned with ruffles, swirls and bows, this is not for the shrinking violets—there is exuberance in volume, an unapologetic insouciance in silhouette.
Owing to the incredible response it has received over the last 2 years, #TheDeepikaPadukoneCloset, 16 closets later, is all set to launch monthly collectibles much to the delight of fashion aficionados and social change-makers.
This month’s lineup features plenty of uber stylish winterwear and statement jackets, formal dresses along with exquisite ethnic wear.
Sharing the update on the closet, in the caption, Deepika wrote, “The sixth edition of the “Frontline Assist” is here!
We are proud to direct proceeds from #TheDeepikaPadukoneCloset towards supporting the mental health of our country’s real heroes through our partnership with Sangath.

The sale is a part of the “Frontline Assist” assist initiative with the Live Love Laugh Foundation, providing mental health support for frontline workers affected by the pandemic. This preloved fashion initiative also serves the environment – when purchased preloved over newly manufactured, the latest drop saves over 1.7 lakh litres of water, and as much carbon as driving the average car for over 4785 km!
On the work front, Deepika is currently basking in the massive success of her production ’83’, and gearing up for her next ‘Gehraiyaan’.
