B-Town beauties create waves wherever they go. Whether it is for the right or the wrong reasons is a matter of opinion. Although there is no dearth of fashionistas in Bollywood, there are some who send hearts racing and make jaws drop. Besides their acting skills (from outstanding to downright non-existent) these divas are known for their high fashion quotient.
In simple jeans and t-shirts, dresses and hats or flowing gowns, Preity Zinta's famous dimples have captured a billion hearts. Cricket venues to race tracks and on-screen appearances to the Cannes Film Festival, the bubbly actress has been as appreciated for her changing hair-styles as her versatile clothing.
If there's one thing every Bollywood diva needs to learn, it's that Indian men like curvaceous bodies. They have no love to spare for size-zero figurines, and one actress which has cashed in on this fact is Katrina Kaif. Her swaying hips and belly-dance in 'Sheila Ki Jawani' won't be forgotten anytime soon. Raised in a western country her penchant for modern clothes was always obvious, but the cute, hot and lanky lady took our breath away in sarees and other Indian outfits.
Featuring once at #1 on Maxim's World Hot 100 List, Bipasha Basu has since then maintained a position in the top 10. The Bengali bombshell has been hailed Bollywood's ultimate sex-symbol and is a trend setter for women all around the country. The voluptuous beauty has poise and panache to carry both traditional as well as western outfits, making heads turn at every step.
Arguably the most followed style icon for young ladies of the country, Kareena Kapoor has earned the right to inherit the crown from her very own sister Karishma. While the elder sibling transformed from an ugly duckling to a beautiful swan in front of the entire world, Kareena sent ripples across homes and hearts from day one. She created news with her size-zero figure during the movie 'Tashan', then came back on the scene with a full body and got men drooling again.
No list is complete without mention of the original diva of BollyWood, Rekha. At an age nearing 60, she has a timeless beauty which can give any young actress a run for her money. Appearing on a list of one of the sexiest women alive as recently as 2006 (British Magazine), she enhances her appeal due to the mystery which has always surrounded her personal life.
Aishwarya Rai, now the daughter in-law of the 'first-family' of Bollywood, is like someone crafted by the angels themselves. Bestowed with the title of the most beautiful woman in the world by not just a beauty pageant but also by famous talk show host Oprah Winfrey and the people themselves, she has achieved international fame with roles in mainstream western cinema. Like an elf she grows ever more beautiful with age, though many are of the opinion that her beauty lacks sensuality.
The world's biggest film industry has many more divas that have their own places in the hearts of men, albeit they rank lower than the ones mentioned above. Deepika Padukone, Malaika Arora Khan, Sonam Kapoor, Celina Jaitley, Neha Dhupia, Priyanka Chopra and of course the curvaceous Shilpa Shetty are names which make their fan's hearts skip a beat. Who is number one? Well, that's open to debate.
