Bollywood has always been our go-to resource for everything related to fashion and style. Be it the crisp chiffon saris our heroines manage to flaunt in sub-zero temperatures or the casual lounge looks modern day heroines flaunt on their Miami shoots, we find everything sassy, gorgeous and trendy when tinged with B-town fever. Not many realize though that these looks are the creation of designers who toil hard and make lavish clothes so that the actors/actresses look like a million bucks. Neeta Lulla is one such name that will live on as long as style remains in Bollywood.
