Dimple Kapadia in and as Bobby in her midriff-baring polka-dotted retro tops and teeny-tiny skirts became a rage in the '70s. Even the bold orange bikini in the film became iconic!
Kajol's character Anjali in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai was such a rage that every '90s kid got the same short blunt haircut as her and wore the same hairbands. Anjali paved the way for athleisure fashion in 1998 with her DKNY tracksuits, casual sweatshirts and denim jackets.
