The top 8 celebrity trendsetters of 2016

They came, they saw, they conquered, and well, they gave us some serious fashion goals.

  • It's one thing to be a Bollywood A-lister and have access to the best fashion designers and stylists, but to have the attitude to carry the outfit flawlessly and make a statement that leaves a mark is another matter altogether.

    We're talking about our beloved actresses-cum-fashion-divas who set trends in 2016 with their killer confidence and well, the ability to take those fashion risks and make a success out of it.
    Here, check out our favourites.

  • Sonam Kapoor Brought Back Denim With a Bang
    Whether it was the 90's-chick look with a choker or a cute-girl-in-a-denim-over-a-maxi look--Sonam sure made 2016 the year of sporting denim in the most creative ways. We loved how she rocked the lampshading trend in that denim dress over thigh-high boots.
