Sridevi cemented herself as one of the strongest pillars of Indian Cinema. Her career in Indian cinema spanned over 5 decades, in a range of genres from slapstick comedy to epic dramas. She was also known for her reticent and introverted personality, but she let her headstrong and outspoken screen persona, do the talking. Regularly playing strong-willed, sophisticated women, Sridevi squashed all the barriers and stereotypes for women and carved a niche for the generations to come.
Apart from her acting stints, the yesteryear diva has an avant-garde vibe and she set new fashion goals over the years. Interestingly, it seems even the celebrities in the west are taking notes from the actress who knew how to style any ensemble.

Well, the world’s most popular and snazzy family - the Kardashians and Jenners - are taking inspiration from our own late superstar who set benchmarks with her chic looks and sassy ensembles.
Now, one of Sridevi's fan pages shared a collage of two pictures, consisting of the veteran actress’ look from her photoshoots in 1990 along with the latest photoshoot of Kylie Jenner in 2022. In the pictures, both were seen donning identical silver outfits paired with a middle-parted simple hairdo.
Along with the collage, the fan page also claimed that Kylie’s recent look was inspired by Sridevi as the caption read: “When Bollywood was way ahead of its time. P.S. Sridevi ji aced it.”
Meanwhile, another fan page shared a similar collage of Sridevi and Kylie’s photoshoot and claimed that Sridevi's picture was from the 1980s photoshoot and not the 1990s. Along with it, the fan page wrote, “This is a proof that Sridevi was way ahead of her time in terms of understanding style and fashion.”
In no time, Sridevi’s fans flooded the comment section with praises and compliments on her pictures from the 1990s photoshoot.
The two were seen wearing shimmery silver tops which featured a cowl neck and hood from celebrity stylist, Xerxes Bhathena's huge collection.
Sridevi opted for a middle-parted neat hairdo while heaving a strand of her hair on her face. Along with it, dewy foundation, thin strokes of eyeliner, glossy lips and highlighted cheeks completed her look.
On the other hand, Kylie's outfit is reportedly from fashion designer, Paco Rabanne's 1997/98 fall-winter collection. Kylie teamed her shimmery top with dual-toned pants and nude makeup identical to the veteran actress, Sridevi.
Speaking of Sridevi, the actress tied the knot with filmmaker-producer, Boney Kapoor in 1996 and together, they were blessed with two daughters, Janhvi Kapoor and Khushi Kapoor. After her marriage, she took a break from her acting career and made a thunderous comeback with her movies like English Vinglish, Mom and Zero.
However, the news of her sudden demise in Dubai in February 2018 sent tremors across the nation.
