Living up to her impressive Kapoor genes, Kareena Kapoor Khan bagged the Filmfare Award for Best Female Debut for Refugee in 2000 — just a year shy of two decades ago. Ahead of her first film, she has had ample exposure to the film fraternity, thanks to accompanying sister and actor Karisma Kapoor to shooting sets. In fact, when she first burst on the celluloid, her style fell in line with the widely accepted Bollywood stereotype — embellished Indian wear, overdone highlighters, caked makeup base. Her style has, however, evolved since.
“Kareena Kapoor Khan doesn’t follow trends, she quite literally fabricates them. Right from her debut in 2000 in the film Refugee, where she owned the Indo-western short kurtas with pants and dupattas winning the best debut award,” says stylist Kareen Parwani, who manages veteran actors like Hema Malini to the young brigade like Tamannaah Bhatia, Soha Ali Khan and Jennifer Winget.
