It’s not every day that Bollywood girls are brave enough to slip into a latex catsuit that comes straight off the catwalks of Paris. Ananya Panday, for a change, does. Sharing her photos from the star-studded Swarovski dinner in New York last night, the 25-year-old was clicked mingling with international superstars like Emily Ratajkowski, Irina Shayk, Lucy Hale and more.
While others might be drowned in the bling of her jewelry, her presence at the illustrious affair marks an upward trajectory for the new actress. Having started her career only seconds ago in the film industry timeline, Ananya is one step closer to absolute annihilation in the competition. Janhvis and Saras of the world, are you listening?

A look at Ananya Panday’s sartorial sensibilities
Hiring stylist and Gen-Z confidante Meagan Concessio (@spacemuffin27 on Instagram) as part of her glam squad was a game-changer for Ananya. for her last appearance in NYC, she wore a Cat Woman-esque black jumpsuit, an outfit few would approve of, especially for an event such as a large-scale dinner party. However, AP held firm.
Instagram force Diet Sabya also applauded the effort, writing, “It gives editorial flair. It’s giving that I’m aligned with the Bella/Kylie school of aesthetics,” and ending with the question, “Is Ananya the fashion star of her generation? (sic)” We are here to answer with a resounding “yes”.

Even if the previous appearances must be taken into account, the liger star has often been portrayed as the risk-taker among her contemporaries. Take a look at her set of oversized monochromatic blazers from a September event that I personally always seek out as a sartorial reference.
What else is in Ananya’s chat?

Along with working with Dharma Productions, signing a film with Zoya Akhtar, and starring alongside Deepika Padukone and Ayushmann Khurrana in her previous and upcoming films, Ananya is already making her mark with some informed career decisions.
While many may not trust her acting abilities, I’m a strong believer in the skill she possesses – a glimmer of which we’ve seen in Gehraiyaan. She’s ready to bare her soul on screen, something her competitors aren’t quite comfortable with yet. This is the distinguishing factor. And now, with her appearance in New York, the verdict is clear: Ananya Panday is here to change the game and it is better to prepare for it!
