Hands down, the year 2021 was indeed a game-changing one, in terms of fashion. Putting an end to the fashion famine of 2020, these 365 days were nothing short of glamour. Rolling down the red carpet once again, we witnessed many high-end award nights, shiny premiere galas and glam-bam weddings taking place, thus satiating our inner fashionista.
With the pandemic of COVID still lingering around to dampen the fashion fervor and some of the festive occasions, there were some actresses, who held the style fort strong with their bang-on looks. Going all out, these tinsel town divas showed us the right way to slay a look, one outfit at a time. Be it a premiere or a party appearance, a film’s promotional event, or a festive look, they hit all the right notes with their unique style sensibilities.
Just like every year, we are delighted to bring you the best-dressed actress’ list, however this year with a fun& fashion twist! We happily collaborated with renowned designers Nikhil Thampi and ace stylists Eka Lakhani, Victor Robinson-Sohail Mughal, to bring forth their top picks for the year because what’s better than having the validation from the best?! Having said that, allow Peepingmoon.com and the above mentioned to present you our top contending actresses who made the right buzz with their impressive looks throughout the year. Caution- it’s extremely hawt!
Please note: there aren’t any ratings per se, they have all stood out this year!
