A name that easily comes to our mind when talking about fashion and style in Bollywood is none other than Sonam Kapoor. The diva ticks all the boxes as one of the most influential style icons of our times. The actress has over the years become the style diva of the entertainment industry. But her acting skills are questioned by many, and so, Sonam retorted by saying that movie stars who are not good-looking are often considered ‘good actors’. Well, this is the reason the actress chooses to look presentable always and slays it in the fashion scene, maybe or maybe not to conceal the shortcomings of her acting on screen.Also Read - Urfi Javed Trolled by Diet Sabya For 'Gandi Copy' in Barely-There Black Top, She Gives a Sassy Reply

But, guess what, not all actors have to be ‘not good-looking’, as claimed by Sonam. There are artistes in B-town who are far more evolved that Sonam when it comes to style sense. One of them is none other than the Margarita with a Straw actress Sayani Gupta. The actress, who awed us all by portraying the blind Pakistani-Bangladeshi woman in the movie who is Kalki Koechlin’s love partner, is a dark horse (or mare, shall we say). Sayani (pronounced Shyoni) is one gem of an artiste not many people know about. Also Read - 5 Tips to Flaunt a Flawless Back in Those Backless Blouses This Wedding Season

It is really difficult to believe that Sayani, who has passion for dance, drama and theatre used to lead a nine-to-five life in the infrastructure industry. But soon, she ventured into the entertainment industry to thoroughly enjoy the experience of art in every form. Sayani has a zealous sense of style. The actress did not find much scope to experiment with her looks in the movies she starred in, but her Instagram account is proof enough of her fashion sense.

Slaying it in nude!

The young actress with sleek, short hair has a radical sense of fashion. In a very versatile way, Sayani can slip into costumes that might not look aesthetically good on others, yet manage to look striking on her. Sayani slays it in this nude high-slit dress. Keeping the accessories just right with a choker and a body chain, the actress carries a unique antique telephone dialer clutch. Her slightly tousled hair and burgundy lipstick completes this bold look, not to forget the golden footwear that accentuates the nude dress.

Sayani in the Supergirl in cape!

Yet another classy dress from Sayani’s wardrobe is this beautiful black embellished gown. She is giving us all the more reason to wear a cape dress and to well embrace the superhero in us! We are sure no one else can pull off this chic backless dress with a cape. Sayani is flaunting those long legs in the high-slit dress like a diva!

Going asymmetrical

At the IIFA Awards 2016 Green Carpet, the new fashionista on the block chose to wear this unconventional pretty little asymmetric dress. The ivory dress looked rather chic on the actress. Sayani paired the dress with the most stylish oxblood pumps and gave us all the more reason to follow her style book!

Posing like a BOSS!

Nobody else on earth can manage to look chic wearing a tie with pineapples imprinted on it! But Sayani did, and she teamed it up with an all the more eccentric suit. We know that power pantsuits are making a comeback, but this look is definitely hard to pull of! Yet Sayani manages to look unperturbed and pose like a BOSS. The ivory pant suit has a fitted jacket with flower prints. Sayani teamed it with a flared bottom to balance the structured outfit.

Sayani goes playful!

Sayani is bubbling with zest wearing this monotone jumpsuit and displaying her playful side. The side cutout strappy jumpsuit is one of the most simple yet fun looks of the actress. She manages to have a surprise element in each ensemble; in this particular look she has kept it casual and simple, yet the shiny lace-up comfort shoes stand out in the look.

Sayani, the goddess!

Sayani looks like a goddess in this traditional look! The actress has kept her short hair off the face by pulling it into a bun, with a few strands loose to add to her look. The ivory lehenga and its perfect fit is accentuating Sayani’s slender body and toned abs. The actress cannot make it more perfect, with the heavy choker necklace, nath nose ring with chain and the bindi! The contrast between her fun, casual avatars and this one is unbelievable.

Colour blocking, the right way!

Colour blocking is in, and Sayani teaches us how to put on the perfect colour block outfit. Here, the actress has teamed a bright sunshine yellow cape poncho with a bright blue palazzo and tan shoes. The off-shoulder top and the whole breezy outfit is one thing that can definitely lift your spirits up on any given day!

With each and every look, Sayani amazes us with how she uses her outfits to express herself in the most creative way. She puts together an outfit in the most confident way, while showcasing her perfect sense of style. All the fine-looking attire that she wears looks like it belongs to her and her only! No-one else can indeed even think about pulling off such unconventionally styled apparel! By unconventional we are not talking about the weird ‘Lady Gaga’ kind of extreme costumes but some really good style that only Sayani can manage to impress us with. So, we think this lady can surely dethrone Sonam Kapoor in the fashion arena, at least! What do you think?
