She is the ultimate Diva, who is as much an enigma today as she was when she first came onto the screen. Rekha, who has set the gold standard in glamour, elegance, and style, has given us iconic moments on screen and off it too, for decades. If she is only seen in rich silks and heavy kundan and gold jewellery in public, she has also personified 80s’ glam in her puffed sleeves and big hairdo with bold, edgy earrings. Here’s looking at some of Rekha’s most loved looks that sparked off a trend in jewellery.

No one wears the passa and the maang tika like Rekha. In Umrao Jaan, Rekha was a vision in white and gold, kundan and pearls in Mughal jewellery. The majestic passa on her head coupled with the crescent-shaped maang tika and the long pearl necklaces were her signature look that could never be replicated.

Her delicate wrists are clearly strong enough to take on the weight of the enormous gold and kundan and meenakari bangles and kadas that she wears on every occasion. Perfect with her heavy silk sarees, this look smacks of supreme confidence and a distinctive sense of personal style.

Playing the role of a seductress, Vasantsena, Rekha carried off the bare-dare look with aplomb, doing justice to the intricate jewellery that accentuated her curves. It was all gold, with just a hint of precious stones

All through the 80s, Rekha experimented with looks that were in keeping with the era of punk. Her photo shoots were all about crazy hairdos, sharply defined eyebrows and eyes that cut through steel. The earrings kept up with her spunk – geometric and abstract designs with a generous helping of metallic sheen.
