The Hindi film industry has delighted audiences for decades with its colorful costumes, a dress — known as ‘filmi’ which is flashy, excessive, or revealing, and frequently all of three. Whether its Raj Kapoor wearing iconic costume in ‘Shree 420’ or Jeetendra wearing white bell bottoms in ‘Humjoli’, to Neetu Singh wearing kick-ass boots and 70’s style jacket in ‘Ek Main Aur Ek Tu’, the Hindi film fraternity has given some unique style that not only became a trendsetter but it has touched the hearts of millions of people in India and across the globe.
When we talk about style, how can we forget the name of style diva Mumtaz. When one think of Mumtaz, a young, slim image of a girl dressed in a figure hugging orange saree passes through one’s mind and that style has resonated in everyone’s heart and mind and from one generation to an another generation. Her screen persona, charm, and childlike innocence have made millions of fan crazy.
Best thing about Mumtaz was she played every role to perfection she was offered and she made any attire a part of who she was. She was the one actress who has used different hues and shades of yellows, reds and orange and mostly seen in these shades.
She has inspired the whole generation with her charismatic style statement that, it became a trend setter for generations thereafter.
