Sonakshi Sinha’s asli style


The Khandaani Shafakhana actor and MyGlamm’s newest beauty ambassador details her fashion evolution

From fashion disaster lists to cover girl and being a showstopper for the likes of Tarun Tahiliani and Monisha Jaisingh, Sonakshi Sinha has come a long way in the style department. That she is now the face of European beauty brand MyGlamm only cements her role as a fashion icon.

Speaking about Pose, MyGlamm’s HD make-up range created for Indian skin tones, this vocal supporter of animal rights and PETA says she was drawn to the brand’s cruelty-free status. Referring to the collection that includes blush, highlighter and bronzer duos, setting and banana powder, and 20 lightweight lipsticks, she continues, “I like to think of myself as versatile — I need to be able to convincingly play a small-town girl on film one day and pull off a glamorous magazine cover the next. That’s where the collection matches my personality, because it can create looks from fresh-faced to full-on glam.”

In the past few years, the actor has taken on diverse roles, from playing a social justice warrior in Akira, to a journalist in Noor, and a housewife/murder suspect in Ittefaq. The trend continues with the just-released Khandaani Shafakhana, in which she runs a fertility clinic. And in the upcoming Mission Mangal (releasing August 15), she plays a scientist. “It is not a conscious effort, but I’m someone who goes by my instincts; that makes me choose scripts that are so different from each other,” explains Sonakshi, who is reprising her role as Rajjo Pandey in Dabangg 3, set for a December 2019 release. She has also wrapped up a war drama, Bhuj, that will release next year.

Sonakshi is just as multifaceted when it comes to her wardrobe. A quick scroll down her Instagram page will find her in everything from sequinned pant suits by Dhruv Kapoor to wrap dresses by Johanna Ortiz. Manish Malhotra’s saris are another favourite. “Over the years, my style has evolved because I’ve consciously started choosing outfits I’m comfortable in. I don’t want to be boxed into a certain look. Whether it’s a floral summery dress, a bold in-your-face print, a simple elegant sari or ethnic separates, it really depends on what I feel,” says the 32-year-old star, who is quite vocal about body positivity. In a few months, she will soon step up as a judge on upcoming reality show, Myntra Fashion Superstar. For now, here’s breaking down her various looks.
