Rekha in Khoon Bhari Maang (1988)

Rekha's fashion in this movie is playful, fun,edgy and a wee bit over the top (fabulously so). It seems the stylist was inspired by the fashion in the top soap operas of the time like Dynasty & Return to Eden where the film in fact got its inspiraton, there are also shades of Grace Jones in her styling

I loved this scarf and sunglasses combo, this style was very popular in the 80's and Rihanna was recently seen in something similar

Love the make up, she truly has a flawless complexion

Gotta love the lace gloves and lame gold headscarf, looks like something you'd find at Topshop these days

Loving this Karate Style outfit

She also wore some amazing retro style sunglasses, i'd totally buy this pink one above

Gotta love the attitude

i love the croc skin giant clutch she has

Not so sure about this one, seems inspired from Star Trek, I know Lady gaga would kill for those shoulders though

Proof That Fashion does indeed go around in circles

Watch a hilarious dance competition between the two leading actresses from the movie to see who's the fiercest one (lol) Who gets your vote, Rekha or Sonu

This is one of my favorite movies of all time. Gotta love the classic 80's revenge thriller! Props for making the connections between Rekha's outfits and contemporary retro inspired looks.
