Bollywood has always been known for its extravagant style and fashion and the costumes of the leading actors and actresses reflect the same. We a mesmerized by the beauty and the designs of the outfits and most of the times they become the trend of the entire country. One such example was Rani Mukherjee’s collared Kurtis in Bunty Aur Bubly. She grandly paired them up with Patiala and long skirts and we went gaga for that style.
