Karisma's class act!

Karisma Kapoor may have given the silver screen a miss these last few years, but she cannot escape the public gaze as she continues to redefine and grow her sense of style.

Verve magazine's Shirin Mehta probes the reclusive fashion diva's style depths.

Rewind a decade, or more. To a time of celluloid innocence, a time of histrionics and performance but little style.

A time when a teenaged Karisma Kapoor, daughter of the first family of stardom, broke through familial taboos of girls joining the industry and stepped into roles that belied her age. Albeit with the carelessness of the very young, guided by the lack of aesthetics of directors and bushy eyebrows to boot! This was not a time when Bollywood would score brownie points for style! And remember, the girl who was churning out films then, had more energy and gumption than pizzazz, being all of 16 years old.
