A star in the making
Janhvi Kapoor is definitely the next big thing to look out for. She comes with a starry lineage that cannot be overlooked. Daughter of the iconic late actor, Sridevi, and film producer Boney Kapoor, the debutante also counts the likes of Anil Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja and Arjun Kapoor as her closest kin. Safe to say, acting and style are probably ingrained in her DNA. Her impending Bollywood debut Dhadak opposite Shahid Kapoor’s brother Ishaan Khatter has been produced by filmdom royalty and mentor extraordinaire, Karan Johar.

An early debut
Kapoor is no stranger to camera flashes. The 21-year-old made her first red carpet appearance as early as 2011, accompanying her mother to a number of fashion shows and events. Her teen-friendly wardrobe was replete with bandage and strapless dresses, form-hugging minis and playsuits, which she used to colour-block with neon heels back then. From a teenager still finding her fashion footing to turning into a bona fide trendsetter today, she’s made all her major sartorial moves with the spotlight trained constantly on her.
A star is born
As a card-carrying member of the Insta-famous generation, topping best-dressed lists is already one of Kapoor’s headlining resume skills; though she also possesses the effortless, almost careless, nonchalance of someone who doesn’t take her wardrobe too seriously. It’s hard to place the actor’ style into any one category—she’s glamorous on some days and normcore on others, but always confident. She can dress down as easily as she can dress up, and can shine equally in a Temperley jumpsuit and an Anamika Khanna peplum corset.
Much like other millennial sartorialists her age, she loves sneakers and furry slides, normcore and Off-White, and Gucci tees and Kenzo sweatshirts, but she balances her coveted of-the-moment buys with classics from labels like Chanel, Goyard and Hermès.

As far as Kapoor’s off-duty looks go, you’ll either spot her in figure-flaunting workout gear or nondescript kurta palazzo sets. And just when you feel you’ve pinned down her style, she’ll stop traffic in a barely-there sequinned chain halter top or a Zimmermann ruffled dress. From white crop tops worn with Stella McCartney patchwork denim pants to Fiorucci cropped numbers with ripped jeans and sneakers or even fringed jumpers from Chloé, it’s clear that crop tops and denim bottoms are definite staples in the Kapoor’s wardrobe.
As for traditional wear, she seems to believe in the more-is-more philosophy. It’s unlikely that you will spot our cover girl at a festive occasion without her trademark ornate lehenga, often worn with a contemporary blouse and embellishments like feathers, fringes and ruffles. Though her track records shows that she’s a Manish Malhotra loyalist, she can be seen in Sabyasachi and Tarun Tahiliani every once in a while too.
