A title like ‘the most beautiful woman in the world’ is not easy to hold, but it’s one that has been repeatedly conferred upon Aishwarya Rai Bachchan ever since she was crowned Miss World in 1994. Today, the beauty-queen-turned-actress is as celebrated for her filmography as she is for her pageant-winning looks. It is her innate confidence that has kept her movie star allure intact even after all these years.
When Rai Bachchan is not posing in princess-inspired bespoke ball gowns on red carpets around the world, you’re most likely to find her in equally well-tailored dressed-down looks. Her personal stylist Aastha Sharma attests to the star’s penchant for comfortable ensembles. “With such a strong personality, Aishwarya looks cool in just about everything.
But rather than OTT, she prefers her wardrobe to be classic, chic and comfortable. Good fit is extremely important to her.” Skinny jeans with a jacket or blazer, easy dresses and kurta sets are looks the actress is most at home in, according to Sharma. “She is very confident and sure about what suits her. Gucci, Roberto Cavalli and Armani are some of her go-to labels,” adds the stylist.
Rai Bachchan is rarely seen without her trusty jackets—a mix of structured fits and relaxed silhouettes depending on the occasion. When on mom duty, she favours sharp blazers and jeans with ballerinas (Salvatore Ferragamo’s powder pink Varina ballet flat seems to be a favourite). For down-time with the family, she mixes it up—think capes by Shivan & Narresh and kaftans by Saakshi & Kinni.

Or an olive green belted jumpsuit and boyfriend blazer set accessorised with jewellery from Chanel for some off-duty glam. While the star doesn’t shy away from prints and bold colours, it’s monochrome combinations or head-to-toe black that she truly loves. Often topped off with black boots or booties, poker straight hair and her signature red lip.
If not skinny jeans, a simple (but definitely timeless) white chikankari kurta or a gota work kurta and palazzo set, often by Sukriti & Aakriti, wins her favour. Scroll down to look at some of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s most memorable off-duty looks.
