In the world of Bollywood movies where fashion trends generally take a back seat, giving way to all that’s showy and skimpy, Diana Penty’s character in “Cocktail” comes as a refreshing change. Her style statement through the movie is all about layering, and she plays it up with the hottest colours of the season: pastels. Her ever evolving personality and lifestyle is reflected in her wardrobe choices. The one thing that stays constant is her penchant for layering, be it cardigans, jackets or wraps.
Meera’s casual outfits are composed of jeans, capris, vests and floral tops. Here choice in colours like pinks and light blues add to her youthful charm. She wears everything from crocheted vests to shirts to long cardigans, and cinches them with a slim belt over the waist. A chunky bangle every now and then, long, beaded necklaces, and a couple of roomy totes are all the accessorising she needs.
What I loved most were her blazers in floral prints, polka dots, and even stars. This is part of her work-wear look (she’s a designer by profession, remember?), but she stretches it to her-evening wear look too. If you are blessed with long, slim legs like her, you can opt for short-jumpsuits, like the one in the hit song “Tum hi ho bandhu”. However, for those who feel that looking sexy is outside your comfort zone, you can try long jumpsuits for a perfect day-to-night look. Wear a blazer over it, and accessorise with a pair of heels, stacked bangles, and a clutch for instant glam. Like with Meera, layering can be your key to chic.

All you girls need to take just one look at Deepika’s long (and very toned) legs in Cocktail to send you running to the gym! She plays Veronica in the film, a girl who looks like a million bucks, and knows it. Confidence drips from her as she struts around in her casual day wear and sexy party wear.
Deepika’s cropped tops, worn with distressed denims and printed pants scream fun. She has looked oh-so-feminine in her strappy tops, sheer blouses and frilly tube dresses, and naughty-but-nice in her high-waist shorts, comfy vests in solid colours, and dresses and T-shirts with smart nautical stripes. Watch out for some earthy tones coupled with pastels, as well as some funky tribal prints. And when Veronica is in a mood to party she wears short printed skirts and dresses that do complete justice to her marvellous figure. With her well-done eyes, lush hair and chunky accessories, she has nailed every look.
My favourite? Her outfit in “Tum hi ho bandhu”; the midriff-baring top and teensy printed skirt. And if you think you have a bit of a “Veronica streak” in you, how about sending us some of your pictures?
