This year's best dressed - Kalki Koechlin

Year 2012 saw the rise and fall of many a star in the best and worst dressed list. While regulars like Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Priyanka Chopra exited the best dressed list, giving way to a fresh new fashion brigade, some worst dressed remain on this year's list, because they can't just seem to get their style right. Team Yahoo! Lifestyle brings you a look at who made it to the top of the style charts.

Kalki Koechlin is an unconventional diva. Her girl-next-door charm and unabashed quirkiness make her very endearing to watch. Her dressing has a predominant free-spiritedness that you associate with her.

She usually dresses casual in cotton fabrics and easy-on-the-eyes prints. However, being a little too fair for the Indian palate, she dresses in a lot of colours that compliment her complexion.

She teams chic yet casual dresses with classy footwear and portrays an extremely high fashion look which garners her major plus points. Her dress sense is very relatable and appeals to the inner hobo in all of us.

Her 'don't-give-a-damn-attitude' shows in her dressing as well. Though she has a chilled out air, it's quite evident that she loves fashion and loves to dress up and is extremely stylish. Her simplicity and fresh dress sense on most days are a huge draw.

She has a very easy style and takes to fluid kurtas or shorts to add a fun element. Her dressing is very young and hip and her mixed French heritage adds a certain edge to her ensembles.

She can also be very glamorous -- the way she had her own spin on a Sabyasachi Mukherjee sari she wore for the Cannes Film Festival, made eyes pop and take notice of her.
