The Hindi film industry or Bollywood has seen the unfurling of attractively
lively fashion statements in its movies this year. It was a very fashionable
year 2010. Hindi films have always inspired Indian fashion clothing. The
year 2010 also displayed a plethora of new styles, colors, fabrics, fashion
wear for Bollywood heroines and the Indian women as a whole. Overall we

As January began with "Pyaar Impossible" we saw Priyanka Chopra

This year saw the release of India's first truly fashion movie in the
form of Sonam Kapoor starrer "Aisha". The dressing styles of each
of the characters in the movies from the lavish Sonam Kapoor, the flamboyant
Ira Dubey to the simple debutante Amrita Puri, costume designer Kunal Rawal
and the stylist Pernia Qureshi had created a whole new aesthetics for the
film. They gave a very rich and luxurious feel to the characters through
their dressing styles. There was both the oomph factor as well as the
elegance in Sonam Kapoor dresses in the movie. Designer Alpana Mittal has
rightly said that the movie "Aisha" is actually a reflection of
the urban fashion. It has created a fashion statement of modern India,
something that every young woman is wearing today. The film style is totally
with the time.

sarees in light pastels and bright colours. She had put a minimal make-up,
used sober jewelries like a nose stud and a pair of round ear dangling with
colourful glass bangles. But that was enough to give a traditional look,
something that can be followed in day-to-day lives as well by modern Indian
