Sridevi in and as Chandni

In a stellar career with too many faultless performances to count... Chandni stands tall. God, what a performance. How incredible she looked. How well she danced. The magnificent Sridevi. The definitive Bollywood heroine.

UPDATE:

For the records, would like to capture every single Indian and western ensemble worn by Sridevi in the fashionable film Chandni; the film is a classic in many ways (music, romance, dialogues, acting) but so severely stylish (Silsila is another one worth capturing every frame of!)  Though made in 1989 (and the 80s having been a diabolical designer dud in many ways), somehow Yash Chopra's imprint and innate style translates and remains a timeless classic in sartorial selections.

Three designers - and Sridevi's own input - worked on the film. The Oscar-winning BhanuAthiya, who left the film midway due to "creative differences" with director Yash Chopra, Leena Daru and newcomer Neeta Lulla (who went on to become a fashion force in later years) filled in. Sridevi looked perfect in every frame - that's not just the fan in us stating that.
