Deepika Padukone Gets Listed In The Business of Fashion 500 List As The Only Indian Actress. And Damn, Are We Proud!
I’ve always been told how one never really ends up having it all. Be it on a professional front, or in your personal life, the idea of having it all has always seemed a little too far fetched to be taken seriously. And somewhere along the road, using it as the best way to console ourselves, we ended up believing it. But only if Deepika Padukone too had thought this way, we would’ve never had among us a woman, who has broken all the barriers to global domination and proved, that there is nothing she can’t achieve by her own hard-work, will, and accord. A statement that has recently been established as a fact, as Deepika Padukone becomes the only Indian actress to be featured on the Business of Fashion 500 list!

The Business of Fashion is proud to unveil the #BoF500 of 2019. Now in its seventh year, our core vision for the #BoF500 has not changed. Each year since 2013, we have been sourcing and discovering new names to add to our community of the people shaping the global fashion industry, based on nominations from existing #BoF500 members. The community itself – now made up of more than 70 nationalities in more than 45 countries – has been an invaluable resource for the BoF team as we sift through hundreds of nominees and conduct research to make sure we are getting a complete picture. For the unveiling of this year’s #BoF500, we are introducing one important change. Instead of removing names each year to make room for new talents, going forwards, we will add 100 new members to the #BoF500 each cycle, resulting in a community that grows stronger and more meaningful over time — including all members from previous years.

The business and fashion portal that globally acknowledges the talent behind shaping the million-dollar fashion industry of today, for its 2019 list of BoF 500, handpicked by a learned and exemplary panel of editors at Business of Fashion, have announced Deepika Padukone as one of the 500 members, who’ve had major and significant contributions to the fashion industry. Earning not just a title but also the status of being the only Indian actress to be on it, Deepika has once again swooned us all over with her long list of merits.

The Padmaavat actress who has also earlier made it to the Forbes Highest Paid actresses’ list, has found yet another feather to grace her hat with, as she continues to shine on and brings back accolades for herself and the country. Business of Fashion also shared about Deepika Padukone that, “One of the highest-paid actors in Bollywood was featured on the April cover of American Vogue and has become a red carpet mainstay by mixing Parisian haute couture labels with home-grown Indian designers.” The only other Indian who accompanied the actress on her mention in the list was Founder and Chief Executive of Saitex, Mr. Sanjeev Bhal.
And it is no surprise that Deepika Padukone made it to the list. She has been a trendsetter for most of her looks, especially her recent on-fleek Dior look for the Paris Fashion Week this year and no matter her once a blue moon fashion faux pas, she is one of the very few, who owns up to whatever she dons on her back and makes a statement out of it. Perhaps, it is due to such bold decisions, both regarding her wardrobe and choices of films, that she is where she is today.
On the work front, Deepika is currently shooting for her upcoming film 83, where she can be seen playing the role of legendary cricketer Kapil Dev’s wife Romi Dev, alongside her own husband, Ranveer Singh.
