Anushka Sharma Vs. Sonakshi Sinha - Style Comparison
Social media is abundant with cases of faceoffs between Sonakshi Sinha and Anushka Sharma. While both the actresses are almost of the same age, Anushka entered Bollywood two years ahead of Sonakshi, and both have tasted success in their debut films—Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi and Dabangg, respectively. Although on the professional front, they fared equally well; on the fashion front they have seen their successes and disasters.
Girl-next-door vs. glam girl
Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi gave Anushka the girl-next-door image. However, over the years, Sharma’s fashion statement evolved from safe evening gowns and ethnic wear to boho-chic attires and more comfortable outfits. She likes to restrict her outfits to jumpsuits, pantsuits, pants and crop tops or shirts.
But when red-carpet events demand, she surprises us, as she steps out of her comfort zone and dons the glamorous avatar. It is obvious that Anushka does shy away from being bold and experimental—in outfits as well as makeup.
Sonakshi, on the other hand, evolved from being a safe player to bold and daring when it comes to fashion. She trashed her conventional dresses for spunky and more fashionable ones. She is now slaying with her stylish appearances and unique sartorial choices. She toys with bold colours, outfits, makeup and accessories. Sonakshi is spotted in the most fashionable and trendy attires like denim from head to toe, neon-coloured separates, coordinated outfits and modern-styled sarees. She has even shunned her glamorous avatar and donned an athletic avatar.
Sonakshi’s footwear choice varies from juttis and kolapuries to coloured and white sneakers to pumps, ankle boots and heels and sandals. She loves handcrafted juttis by designer Neha Sahu. Sonakshi has a large collection of sneakers in every possible colour.
Anushka chooses different makes of sneakers to match her boho outfits. She is also seen in pumps, heels and strappy sandals. Her favourite shoe designers are Alexandre Birman, Aquazzura, Christian Louboutin or Givenchy.
Makeup or no-makeup
A major part of Sonakshi’s makeup consists of her eye makeup—she loves to highlight the eyes and keep the rest of the makeup soft and nude. Her bold and coloured eyeliner adds drama to her eyes. Sinha also goes bold with eyeshadows like green and orange. She likes filled-in brows and a nude lip. But when she keeps her eyes bare, she uses red and pink lip colours.
Anushka likes to keep her makeup real and not in excess. She likes to bring out the girl-next-door image with soft and casual makeup. She prefers nude lips and minimalistic eye makeup. She is usually seen with kohl-highlighted eyes, bare cheeks and just a pop of colour on her lips.
Sonakshi loves to experiment with her hairstyles. She tries out funky hairstyles like messy curls and braided hairdo. Other times she is seen with centre-parting and tresses open straight, wavy or casual loose curls.
Anushka has also experimented with her hairstyles. She is seen in low buns to pixie haircuts to colouring her tresses in shades of red and gold. She usually keeps her hair messy with centre or side parting, poker-straight hair or loose waves.
