Madhubala's jewel-embellished Anarkalis in Mughal-e-Azam has made into the fashion game, and we still love to wear ethnic Anarkalis in our wedding parties or even Diwali.

Mumtaz saree was a statement piece, and it still trends in fashion. Mumtaz wore a body-hugging orange-tinted layered saree. It was an experimental costume by Bhanu Athhaiya who won the Oscars as the first Indian. Mumtaz later wore this kind of saree in other movies too. And it became iconic after her film Brahmachari's iconic dance number.
Dimple Kapadia's Bobby prints
Dimple debuted in the film Bobby in opposite to late legendary actor Rishi Kapoor directed by Raj Kapoor. In the movie, Dimple wore black and white polka-dotted blouses and paired them with trousers, skirts and flared pants and since then, the polka dots are called bobby prints, and we love them! Don't we?
Sridevi's chiffon saree
Late veteran actor Sridevi donned in chiffon saree for her film Chandni, and it became iconic. She was seen wearing a chiffon piece late in Mr India, and we still deck up in chiffon sarees with pearl sets or statement pieces.
Urmila's bold dresses
Urmila Matondkar participated in the fashion game a little late, but oh she spun our head with her bold dresses. She was the actress who took the daring step in wearing them. Though it's nothing in recent times, it was everything 20 years back.
