Deepika has shared screen space with Akshay in Chandni Chowk To China, Housefull and Desi Boyz.
"The best dressed man (in the industry) is Akshay Kumar. It's purely his effortlessness that makes him look the way he does. I think the fact that he has always been so athletic really adds to the way he carries off clothes," the actress told reporters.
Among women, Deepika named veteran actress Rekha as her top choice when it comes to dressing.
"She is someone who has always dressed the way she wants to. Trends have come and gone, but she stands by something she believes in and I appreciate that," said the actress on the sidelines of the launch of a limited collection of Van Heusen designed by her.
Deepika is currently busy shooting for Farah Khan's Happy New Year.
