Ever since we’ve set eyes on Tanu Weds Manu Returns’s Datto, we have not been able to get the tom boy look out of our mind. We recently gave you a list of B-Town divas that rock the look off-screen. Now let’s look at 5 actress who got the tom boy act right onscreen. Yup, totally worthy of being copied (for most part, at least!).
Agreed, Kat is super feminine and looks angelic in girly attire. She, however, looked equally awesome in her tomboy avatar in the first half of Mere Brother Ki Dulhan. It was all about kohl rimmed eyes, ripped jeans, loose tank tops and black combat boots. The lady kept her long locks intact though, albeit stylishly tousled.
As Anjali in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Kajol became an overnight fashion icon for girls looking to adopt the tomboy look. Designer t-shirts, colourful jackets, short hair and big headbands became a rage. To complete the look, Kajol was often seen sporting a watch with a fairly large dial, a trend that girls still love.
Amrita’s whimsical act in Main Hoon Na was so spot-on that for quite some time, the audience just didn’t want to see her play a girly girl. Un-kept hair, baggy pants, combat boots, big belts and full-sleeved tank tops marked her look, complete with very dark eyes and top hats. The thick nose ring was a nice, contrasting touch, as were the fingerless gloves.
A true tomboy in real life, almost every character that Preity has played has had boyish shades. This was most apparent in Dil Hai Tumhaara, a romantic comedy where she was seen as a fiercely independent girl. Boot cut jeans, well-fitted t-shirts, matching caps and short hair, marked her look. Her “Super girl” tee became quite popular with the girls.
Yes, the tomboy look goes that far back. In 1964, Ashaji donned collared shirts, khakhi pants, tailored blazers, cowboy hats and boots to play the role of a rich, spoilt brat who is forever wielding a gun and threatening to blow peoples’ heads off. Don’t miss the scarves!
