Kangna Ranaut: The queen of sexy cool

Fashion comes naturally to Kangna Ranaut. In fact, the 23-year old looks like a seasoned fashionista whenever she steps out. Chalk it up to her slender figure or delicate bone structure, Ms Ranaut sure knows how to strut her stuff.

This year alone, Kangna was snapped in very chic and unusual outfits at various events. And we're not talking films here.

Incidentally, her only film so far this year, Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai, saw her in retro garb, something which must surely have got her kicked about the role. We think it must have something to do with this 1970s inspired gold dress that she wore to the film's success party last month.

Though a little too retro for our taste, this diva can still work her magic with her attitude. Here's a look at some more of Kangna's style chic.

Kangna shows off toned arms and legs in this mini dress. Notice her fondness for the one shoulder style.

Strappy heels complete the sleek silhouette.

Kangna made heads turn when she showed up for the IIFA red carpet this year in this flowy georgette gown designed by Manav Gangwani.

The embellished bodice gave the modestly endowed actress a much-needed boost.

Kangna later changed into this structured strappy satin dress in royal blue, also designed by Manav Gangwani.

Paradoxically, she chose to go for an updo for the evening do which gave her a sexy but cool vibe.

It's not only western outfits that Kangna can carry off with style.

Check out this deep purple net sari she wore to this year's Stardust Awards in Mumbai. Despite the netting and heavy embroidered golden zari with matching brocade lace, Kangna made the look cool and chic by offsetting it with a sleeveless banarsi blouse.

Jackie O!

Kangna goes retro again, this time in Jackie O style, complete with an oversized tote and a string of pearls.

What's missing are oversized sunglasses and gloves, and she is good to go.

Uh oh. Looks like Kangna has forgotten the fashion rule of not repeating an outfit.

In this case, it's the strappy heels which you must have seen her wearing with the Jackie O inspired outfit.

Notice that she's back to her fave one shoulder style.

Kangna ditched her off-shoulder dresses for this demure traditional outfit during Sanjay Dutt and Maanyata's wedding anniversary earlier this year.

However, her behaviour was far from demure after she was caught on tape in what looked like a kiss with actor Dino Morea at the party.

It's back to dresses as Kangna worked the red carpet in this olive coloured outfit teamed with peep toe pumps.

Notice the picture perfect pose.
