The “Only” Zeenat

Zeenat Aman - Hare Rama Hare Krishna

Parveen Babi  got the name “The poor man’s Zeenat Aman”, Sarika was christened “Zeenat Aman 2” and Padmini Kolhapure was named “Baby Zeenat”, but we all know – that truly, there was only one Zeenat “Dum Maro Dum” Aman.

She rose to fame with her “Hare Rama Hare Krishna” act of a hippie. Wearing bell bottoms, psychedelic prints, large tinted shades, bold bikinis and thigh high dresses,  Zeenat was a representation of everything a woman of that time wanted to be, and men wanted to be with.

And as far as the influence goes – we bet it was her who got the winged eyeliner icon-ified (and not Cleopatra) – just saying.
