Deepika Padukone – Apart from being a versatile actress and a sartorial stunner, the diva also championed the noble cause of raising awareness for mental health and ways to combat depression. Probably one of the first actors to openly speak about her struggles with depression and mental health in 2015 in an interview, Deepika Padukone paved way for other actors to go vocal on their vulnerabilities. The Live Love Laugh Foundation (TLLLF), which she founded in 2015, published its 2018 National Survey Report: How India Perceives Mental Health. While the survey shed light on the statistics of mental health consciousness amongst the Indian population across major cities, Deepika Padukone articulated on the misconception that depression only happens to someone who is successful. She also spoke on agenda of her foundation that believes in focussing on fewer programmes that deliver a larger impact. Consuming everything in moderation was her firm stance on the effect of social media on mental health. Ushering this positive change relentlessly but steadily, Deepika Padukone channelled a simple yet significant vibe through the powerful monochrome vibe. She was styled by her go-to fashion stylist, Shaleena Nathani.
Deepika Padukone – Effortless Chic, always!
Deepika Padukone paired separates of a white Proenza Schouler top and fitted black pants with fringed hem from Gucci. Keeping up the monochrome vibe with black pumps, Deepika Padukone went down the minimal accessory way and sported dainty pearl studs.

Makeup artist Rosario Belmonte gave Deepika a flawless makeup, accentuated by bold eyebrows, lined eyes, and nude-toned lips while hair stylist Gabriel Georgiou gave her a sleek middle-parted low back ponytail, nailing the crisp look perfectly.

While her style shenanigans are always under the media scanner and are much of a delight to fashion aficionados and critics alike, Deepika’s signature style personifies three C’s- Chic, Classy, and Cheeky! On the professional front, Deepika is riding high on the phenomenal success of the magnum opus, Padmaavat. Her project with her Piku co-star, Irrfan Khan – a biopic on Sapna Didi to be directed by Vishal Bharadwaj is on the backburner owing to Irrfan’s illness.
