We all love to stalk this tall, toned model-turned-Btown-star through pictures when she’s out and about. Be it a photograph snapped as she hurriedly walks from her car into a party, or pictures of her at promotional events, this Bollywood beauty is a sight for sore eyes because she is uber-fashionable.

While Deepika has always been graceful and poised, the quirkiness in her style only really kicked in during Cocktail — when we saw her wild, fun side in the movie and a fashion-forward side during promo events. In her upcoming film Chennai Express, Deepika plays a South Indian girl Meena, the daughter of a don. The few shots and posters we have seen of the film show Deepika in typically traditional South Indian saris and jewelry.

At her recent promotional events, Bollywood’s in-house style diva has gone traditional, wearing anarkalis, saris and floor-skimming dresses. The hair has mostly been tied back and there has been lots of mustard and orange in her outfits.

In a recent interview, Deepika talked about her style mantra. “Orange is my favourite colour and that’s why I [wear] it. I don’t really know what colours are in, but I am someone who will always wear something that I’m comfortable with. I decide the colours that I would want to wear. The important thing is to keep it cool in summers and yet look stylish.” “I love putting my hair up at times, and am always open to experimenting with different styles. I just like to try out something new and different,” she added.
