Green Carpet at IIFA 2013

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on July 7, 2013

IIFA Awards 2013 started in Macau this past weekend. ‘Indian Fashion Police’ brings you the lowdown of the looks on the green carpet of this event.

IIFA-Deepika

Deepika Padukone looked uber hot in a coral floral all-over metallic beaded chiffon wrap-front gown from Naeem Khan’s Spring 2013 collection. Have to say that she has found the perfect designer in Naeem……….with his stylish designs, Deepika can seldom go wrong. Love this look on her.

IIFA-Deepika2

Deepika was also spotted in a Naeem Khan outfit at the IIFA technical awards as well. The beaded top was paired with pants that had a skirt overlay and was a unique choice for the red carpet. What was right that Deepka took a risk which was paid off with the correct styling. Demure choice…….ladies please learn few lessons here. 😉

IIFA-Madhuri

Madhuri Dixit opted for soft pink & blue ‘Manish Malhotra’ anarkali for the IIFA Technical Awards. The outfit spoke loads about style on the red carpet and did not need much styling….the light colours looked beautfiul on Madhuri. Like this look for sure.

IIFA-Madhuri2

Jade by Monica & Karishma designed Madhuri’s outfit for the main IIFA awards. Though I love the black & golden combination of this lehenga but the drapping part spoilt this look entirely. Wish would have drapped it in a more neater way rather than kust putting the pallu over in a jiffy. The hair & the jewels were glorious with this outfit.

IIFA-Anushka

Anushka Sharma was dressed in ‘Roberto Cavalli’ gown in white but the no accessories look felt too plain for a glamorous event. The hair too was lame as was the missing bling. A white pristine gown is a perfect canvas to experiment with matt gold jewellery or colour stone. Add some glam factor to this look Anushka……


IIFA-Sridevi

Sridevi opted for a sequin studded off shoulder gown for the big nite and boy did she look awesome on the green carpet. The side swept hair, stone embellished clutch, red lips and a pose to match said it all. This is how one should look on the red carpet…….Absolutely Glam!!!

IIFA-Neha

Neha Dhupia always stands out in a stylish manner at any event………….even at IIFA she was no exception as she walked the green carpet in ‘Anamika Khanna’ anarkali paired with black pants. The lace detailing of the outfit was elegant  and Neha kept the jewellery to the minimal. The hair  & the make-up blended well with this look………..Adore it on her.

IIFA-JAc

Jacqueline Fernandes also went all glam in this ‘Roberto Cavalli” outfit in shimmer gold. Love the vintage Hollywood-style hair that gave alot of focus on the décolletage area. For the event this look is definitely one of my favourite.

IIFA-Amrita

Amrita Rao in a shimmer gown as well failed to make any impression in this outfit. The hair was messy & not stylish, there was nothing new in her make-up and the look was devoid of any eye-catching accessory. Need Amrita to find her signature look. 

IIFA-Vidya

OK we have seen Vidya don Sabyasachi looks on the red carpet but watching similar looks over & over again is not that exciting at all.  Even in Sabyasachi’s recent collection there is so much of beautiful colours & designs………..so why not opt for those Vidya instead of sticking to dull colours. As for IIFA, Vidya is wearing ‘Sabyasachi’  lehenga.

IIFA-Huma

 Huma Qureshi decided to go black in this outfit by designer ‘Nikhil Thampi’ ………..not at all excited about the accessories which Huma opted for with this dress. I do like Huma’s hair & make-up but the nude lips with the chunky cuff & nude peep toes did nothing much to call this look amazing. So much experimentation in terms of shoes & accessories could have been done on this silhouette….sigh!!

IIFA-Lisa

Lisa Haydon in ‘Namrata Joshipura’ gown………something in this outfit reminds me of the term ‘Gothic’  but Lisa manages to make this look good on the green carpet. The braided hair compliments the look perfectly………..like it.

IIFA-Divya

Divya Dutta made a pretty picture in red saree at the IIFA awards…….even though this might not be the best look seen till date, Divya does look beautiful in this saree and this one of the good looks seen on Divya in a long time.



IIFA-Minissha

Minissha Lamba in ‘Ayesha Depala’ gown which had feather touch, was paired with a metallic belt. The look was not that great and wish Minissha would have opted for another outfit altogether………..this one made her look more like a blanket than glamorous.

IIFA-Shahid

IIFA-Shahrukh

What is the most common mistake that Indian actors make when they are dressed on the red carpet………they forget or absolutely ignore to shave off the unnecessary stubble when they are wearing a Tuxedo. Please go all clean when one wants to wear a tuxedo on the red carpet……….cleaner the look the better dressed one looks.

Red Carpet at TOIFA 2013

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on April 7, 2013

Times of India Film Awards or better known as TOIFA was held this weekend in Vancouver, Canada. IFP gets you a glimpse at the red carpet of TOIFA and how our stars fared on it.

Photo Courtesy : http://www.businessofcinema.com & Indiatimes.com

TOIFA-ASHABHI

Abhishek & Aishwarya pose on the red carpet at TOIFA complimenting each other’s style in Indian wear. Aishwarya was dressed in a green anarkali by ‘Sabyasachi’ while Abhishek was spotted in a bandhgala. As a couple they looked nice but I still believe this look would have been much more glamorous.

TOIFA-Nargis

Nargis Fakhri dressed in a glittery ‘Komal Sood’ gown posed in style. On someone else the gown would have been a total wash-out but Nargis looked ‘Hot’…………..especially the fuchsia pink lips.

Toifa-Pri2

Priyanka Chopra dazzled in a black & golden ‘Arpan Vohra’ outfit at TOIFA………..this one is definitely one of her best red carpet looks. The dress is sexy, her side swept hairstyle is fashionable and the make-up is beautiful. Wish Priyanka would continue these amazing red carpet appearances in future too.

TOIFA-Neha

Neha Dhupia knows how to work a ‘Sabyasachi’ outfit. IFP loves her military inspired look which was definitely a tough one to carry but Neha pulled this look off with sheer elegance. The pulled back hair, flawless make-up and minimal accessories…….. 🙂 🙂

TOIFA celbration

Ileana D’cruz shares a joke with Prabhudeva on the red carpet………here I actually felt that Prabhudeva looked way better than Ileana who is usually dressed perfect. Maybe this was her day off………………not liking the gown or styling of this look. 😦

TOIFA celbration

Ranbir Kapoor has finally heard IFP’s plead to woo us on the red carpet…………….the man looked dapper in a three piece suit and trimmed stubble. This is definitely how we want a star to be seen on the red carpet. IFP has got at least this wish fulfilled………sigh!!

TOIFA-SG

Shahrukh & Gauri Khan wanted to paint the town red………..well at least their appearance did feel like that. Shahrukh finally opted for some colour by wearing a maroon dinner jacket while Gauri wore a ‘Tarun Tahiliani’ saree. I do like  Gauri’s hairstyle which is a refreshing change & it works with this outfit.

TOIFA-Aditi

Aditi Rao Hydari in a ‘Gauri & Nainika’ gown could have been a match made in fashion heaven…………..unfortunately the reverse happened. I cannot pin point if it was the shiny fabric or the colour that did this look in……..wish the gown would have been in fuchsia colour. Maybe it would have worked……………at least for now this look spelt disaster.

TOIFA-Anushka

Anushka Sharma wore a suit again on the red carpet…………not that IFP has any complains since she looked so good with those hair bangs & red lips. Anushka was the ‘Host’ for the evening along with Ranbir Kapoor so I think they had a dress code to follow for this event……….but a fabulous girl like her deserves to be seen in couture gowns & Indian-wear………there is always a next time.

L’oreal Paris Femina Women Awards 2013

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on March 20, 2013

Starting since 2012, L’oreal Paris & Femina magazine have collaborated to honour Indian women who have made a difference to our society by their work. Women who have been achieved extraordinary feats in their lifetime were nominated for these awards. IFP takes you through the red carpet of this event held in Mumbai.

Photo Courtesy : http://www.oneindia.in

 

LFWA-Ash

Take a beautiful ‘Rohit Gandhi + Rahul Khanna’ gown, have hair & make-up done………then pop in a day wear blazer to spoil the entire look………..that is what Aishwarya did at the event. Aishwarya who is always impeccably dressed seems to be eager to cover up her post baby body. It is a personal choice, but please don’t wear clothes that look like a tent on the red carpet.  Seriously I am disappointed this time around.

LFWA-Sonam

Sonam Kapoor dressed in ‘Atsu Sekhose’ gown and vintage hair + make-up walked the red carpet at the event. Though the lace bodice combined with printed skirt might not appeal in the very first look, but the styling got me convinced that Sonam did look beautiful. Love her shoes which were so understated but so fashionable.

LFWA-Aditi

Aditi Rao Hydari was dressed in ‘Anand Kabra’…….the hair & make-up teamed with the short anarkali looked good on Aditi but it was the salwar that bothered me. I wish Aditi had combined these anarkali with a pair of straight leg pants rather than these voluminous salwar.



LFWA-Mini

Mini Mathur decided to ditch her saree look and opt for a western look in this sheath dress which she combined with a ‘Bottega Veneta’ clutch, a funky neck-piece and golden heels. Black stilettos might have looked better with this outfit but Mini was able to carry this look of well.

LFWA-Neha

Neha Dhupia combined 2 designer pieces together for this look. ‘Anaikka’ top that had detail-work on the neckline & ‘Ranna Gill’ skirt. Now that was something new seen on the red carpet and I must say that Neha looked really good on the red carpet. Only few people can take fashion risks on the red carpet, Neha is sure one of IFP’s favourite.

LFWA-Shabana

Shabana Azmi was the red carpet surprise of the evening as she walked in wearing a ‘Manish Malhotra’ outfit. Love her new hairdo which made her look so fresh……..Shabana donned a bright pink colour which women at her age might shy away from, She looked elegant and IFP is loving Shabana’s look for the evening.

LFWA-Richa

Richa Chadda wore golden shimmer ‘Vizyon’ outfit  paired with matching heels………….I must say this is one of her good appearances on the red carpet since a long time. I do like her neat, sophisticated look which she worked well……..maybe a bit of ‘pop of colour’ was required but hey that is just me.

LFWA-Sakshi

Sakshi Tanwar also made an appearance at this event in a saree which had phulkari motifs at the border. Sakshi accessorized the look with earrings, kangan & a ring. She looked beautiful in this outfit and it is a relief that she stayed away from the usual beaded ‘soap opera’ style of saree.



LFWA-Vidya

Vidya Balan in her signature saree style attended the event but I am not in awe of her look which had too much printed combined in one outfit. The zari border print saree would have worked better if paired with a black blouse instead. Hope to see Ms. Balan in churidhar kurti look for a much awaited change.

Renault Star Guild Awards 2013

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on February 18, 2013

Star Guild Awards held in Mumbai and hosted for the very first time by Salman Khan [can’t wait to watch that] ……the red carpet had many Bollywood haseenas strutting in their designer wear. IFP takes a look at who wore what at this event.

Renault-Priyanka

Priyanka Chopra opted for Shehlaa Khan glittery outfit that she paired it with what seems like a ‘Pinky Saraf’ clutch and blue-golden sandals. The look which was again in pastel colour did not stand out plus the shoes made the look even worse. Just not feeling this styling which could have been way better.

Renault-Anushka

Anushka Sharma manages to do a 360 degree turn around on the red carpet when she walked in in a saree, pulled back hair and jhumkaas. The ‘MAnish Malhotra’ saree looked good on her but it was the earrings that IFP is absolutely in love with. Anushka rocked this look especially after seeing her in series of mini dresses & gown.

Renault-Ekta

Ekta Kapoor was promoting her upcoming movie ‘Ek thi Daayan’ by wearing this one shoulder ‘what-to-call’  outfit. Pair it with space jumping shoes and voila you have a modern day style diva from hell. As good as her movies are and as much as money she makes from them, she could afford the best in fashion to style her. Sigh……

Renault-Vidya

Vidya Balan again opted for ‘Sabyasachi’ but this time there was a twist in form of shimmer blouse. The blouse alone is somewhat too loud but Vidya seems to have played this look well by combining an understated saree & avoiding heavy jewellery. A good look but not one of her best for sure.

Renault-Eleana

Ileana D’cruz wore a floral ‘Dolce & Gabbana’ outfit which seemed too busy with the print & net combined. Plus the hair too was not  working with this outfit. Wish Ileana could have opted for simple silhouette than this one.

Renault-Aditi

Aditi Rao Hydari in a peach ‘Payal Singhal’ saree looked as if she put the entire look in hurry. The big curls with the draping of her saree spoilt this entire look which could have been so elegant if styled differently. This look lacked grace in it……….not liking even a bit.

Renault-Hema

Hema Malini wore a ‘Neeta Lulla’ saree in pastel which was just too shiny for me. But Hemaji worked the look with her choice of clutch and diamond jewellery. On anyone else the look would have come across as garish but not on Hema Malini.

Renault-Neetu

As much as I love Neetu Chandra’s yellow saree, it is her halter blouse & make-up which makes me twitch.  The saree could have been paired with a contrasting brocade blouse with short sleeves rather than a stringy halter. The foundation appeared too light on her face than her neck…………wish Neetu would wake up from a bad dream.

Renault-Sonakshi

Sonakshi Sinha in a ‘Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla’ design which did look elegant on the red carpet but with the designer dupatta trailing the floor, Sonakshi should have worn it better. The look lacked colour since the accessories, the shoes and the outfits itself were done up in pastels. Wish Sonakshi would have added emerald or ruby earrings for that ‘pop of colour’.

Renault-Sophie

Sophie Choudry who is immaculately dressed on the red carpet, seems to have take a day off………Sophie wore ‘Alice+Olivia’ gown in black combined with a red lips. This outfit which had sheer skirt, screamed for bold accessories. A contemporary neck-piece might have worked better. Not a fan of this look which was evidently too simple & boring.

Renault-Sridevi

Sridevi in ‘Sabyasachi’ lehenga which was an unusal choice for the red carpet but definitely an excellent one. Sridevi combined this outfit with a potli bag, dangling earrings & a side swept braid. Love this look on her which was classy, sophisticated and beautiful.

Red Carpet at the Filmfare Awards 2013

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on January 21, 2013

58th Filmfare Awards were held at Yashraj studios in Mumbai. Ranbir Kapoor & Vidya Balan walked away with the leading actor awards, yet again. Annu Kapoor & Anushka Sharma took home the filmfare for their supporting roles while Barfi was awarded the ‘Best Film’ award. Many congratulations to the winners………….now getting back to our fashion business, Filmfare Awards are a big deal for fashionistas as it sets the tone for the year ahead in terms of celebrity fashion. IFP takes you through the red carpet of this event & reviews the fashion.

Photo Courtesy : Bollyone.com

Filmfare-Deepika2

Deepika Padukone in a demure Prabal Gurung…….with a body like hers I feel she did absolute justice to this outfit. On anyone else this gown would have looked trashy but Deepika wowed me…….the fit, the cut [especially the cut work], sheer draping,  no accessories, coral lips and hair tied up. Deepika is back to rule the red carpet for sure. Love it…….. 🙂


Filmfare-Ileana

Ileana D’cruz wanted to shine for the big nite…..she did bag the ‘Promising Newcomer’ Award for her role in ‘Barfi’. This ‘Roberto Cavalli’ outfit reminds me of the glittery 1970s where sequins were very fashionable. Not a fan of this outfit, but Ileana did manage to tone the look down with tasteful jewellery, clutch & shoes  to match.

Filmfare-Ranbir2

Ranbir Kapoor dressed in all black three piece suit which did look vintage especially the button detail on the jacket. I wish Ranbir would surprise us with much more fresher looks especially in Indianwear. The stubble & the all black attire is turning a bit boring. He is a fine actor of this generation, but would love to see him rock the red carpet too. SIGH!! 😦 😦


Filmfare-Priyanka

Priyanka Chopra has been wearing alot of colour lately but never expected her to wear something so loud. The colour with so much of glossy sheen was simply over the top……..add the trail of the gown & we  have a Prom Queen. Hate this look on Priyanka though neck up she did look very pretty but the outfit is altogether a different story. 😦 😦 😦



Filmfare-Alia

 Alia Bhatt making a graceful appearance in ‘Manish Malhotra’ lehenga in which she looked pretty. But why opt for something so safe, why not experiment a bit with your style???

Filmfare-Anushka

Anushka Sharma made me remembered the 1960s era where the flower power was on its rise and the winged eye-liner trend at its peak. The canary yellow colour is lust worthy and the entire looks spells vintage. She is wearing a ‘Victoria Beckham’ gown. L-O-V-E in capital for this look………that aside,  Anushka would look wonderful with a fuller figure though……what say people???

Filmfare-Chitra

Breaking away from the conventional lehenga & anarkali style, Chitrangada Singh made me proud in this ‘Anand Kabra’ outfit. The side swept braid, vintage jewellery and the colour all get browny points from IFP. Chitrangada has been a risk taker on screen as well off it and her style shows positive signs of the same.

Filmfare-Minnisha

Minnisha Lamba in a Krishna Mehta pastel outfit………….with the lack of some bright colour this look was a total wash-out on Minnisha. I wish she would have added the colour in form of jewellery or bright coloured lipstick. I did see this collection of Krishna on the runway and also liked it. But not liking the way this outfit was styled on Minnisha. Sigh…:-(

Filmfare-Neha

 Neha Dhupia wore a ‘Victoria Beckham’ outfit in black with hair accesories to highlight her look. I do like this look but wish she would have added some more drama to her look. The plain outfit of hers is like a canvas which Neha could have made look a lot more glamorous with addition of a belt to match her jewellery.  Nonetheless simple look works as well.

Filmfare-Yami

 Yami Gautam in a ‘Tarun Tahiliani’ pastel lehenga…………waist up she does look pretty but it is the detailing on lehenga which was not needed. The corset type choli would have looked better if it was paired with a plain net lehenga. But hey, that is just me……….do you like this look of hers???

Filmfare-MAdhuri2

Madhuri Dixit Nene went all glam in this shimmer blue ‘Alberto Makali’    …………..she has taken a risk opting for this gown and unfortunately this one comes across as too flashy than classy for me.  I wish she would have given one of those ‘Dior’ looks in which she looks heavenly………shimmer in subtle proportion looks good but too much can spoil the entire look.

Filmfare-PArineeti

Parineeti Chopra seems to be taking a liking to Gothic looks coz her ‘Rajat Tangri’ dress goes feel dark to me. On Parineeti the dress is a misfit…………just not feeling this satin attire. Wish Parineeti would have opted for a more colourful appearance that go all black in satin. I find this look totally dated. 😦 😦

Filmfare-Sridevi

Sridevi in coral ‘Alberta Ferretti’ gown is a surprise for me……..fortunately it is a pleasant one. Though this might not be her best looks till date but the elegant manner in which she carries off this look is superb. Pairing the outfit with a Judith Leiber which works well with her outfit, IFP is happy to see Sridevi take risks. 🙂 🙂

Filmfare-Vidya2

Vidya Balan in her trademark ‘Sabyasachi’ saree posed along with her hubby Siddharth Roy Kapur. Though we have seen the check saree on her earlier too in a different design, I wish Vidya would opt for something out of the designer’s new collection. It is boring to see her don the same look while taking no risk. 😦

Filmfare-Raveena

A cocktail saree in black & green looks beautiful………top it off with hairstyle with tight curls and you have a recipe for style disaster. That is exactly what Raveena Tandon did to this look.  I do like her outfit but her hair……..please someone tell her hairstylist to have some mercy.  😦

Filmfare-Urmila

Urmila Matondkar in her ‘Manish Malhotra’ style did manage to look good after a lonnnnnnggg time. She absolutely had me on the colour of her outfit plus the styling was in sync with her attire. Absolutely like this one 🙂

Filmfare-Aditi

 Aditi Rao Hydari went the saree route in this Gaurav Gupta……….she looked amazing in this grey shimmer saree that gave a very gown like feel to the look. She kept the look understated with minimum accessories………one of the few looks given by Aditi. 🙂

Filmfare-Shahana

 Amongst the celebrities who opted for traditional attire, Shahana Goswami was a delight to see. Dressed in a ‘Sabyasachi’ black lehenga, she did look glamorous and perfectly styled for the evening. The hair pinned up in a bun, the red lipstick and only earrings look works for me………what about you???

Filmfare Nominations Bash 2013

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on January 15, 2013

Filmfare Awards Nominations for the year 2013  were announced in Mumbai. ‘Barfi’ leads in the nominations and IFP hopes it wins the award for ‘Best Picture’. IFP takes you through the red carpet of this nominations bash to see how well the celebrities were dressed.

Photo Courtesy :MSN India &  Bollywoodlife.com

FF-Priyanka

Priyanka Chopra wore a white ‘Dior’ with a glittery clutch to add the zing to this look.  Love the hairstyle with bangs and love the way Priyanka looks classy. 🙂



FF-Alia

Alia Bhatt in a peach gown which had floral bodice that she could have flaunted with her hair pulled back. Plus the bronze oversized clutch does not compliment her look at all. I do prefer her Screen Awards outfit over this one. 😦

FF-Anushka

Anushka Sharma wore a ‘Rohit Gandhi + Rahul Khanna’ ……..waist up she does look nice but the pants & the shoes are another story all together. It would have been preferable if the top would have extended as a knee-length dress. Sexy stilettos would have helped too to glam this look for a red carpet event.

FF-Sridevi

Sridevi went the rouge in this chiffon top in balloon sleeve teamed with high waist trousers. The top, hair & make-up get our thumbs up but the length of the trousers & the fur clutch bag were the spoilers. A smaller clutch & a knee-length skirt might have worked here. 😦

FF-Imran

Imran Khan in a grey suit looked amazing…… IFP loves the way Imran is always dressed fabulously at events. Liking this look at the way for sure 🙂

FF-Sonali

Sonali Bendre in a Manish Malhotra anarkali which came as a surprise since she usually opts for well-known designer duo. She did look pretty in this outfit and IFP thinks she looked elegant. 🙂

FF-Deepika

Deepika Padukone opted for wide leg trousers with a sequins jacket ……..unusual choice for red carpet but IFP has no complains. Deepika can carry off this look with sheer ease……..the hair, make-up, clutch & the outfit blend well. Plus she looked different & comfortable in this look.

FF-Ranveer

It sure has been a long time since IFP last saw Ranveer Singh on the red carpet. Dressed in a basic black suit & a beard to go with it! After seeing his casual looks in the past, this one surely looks good on him. Hope Ranveer continues his suited booted looks in near future too. 🙂



FF-Aditi

Aditi Rao Hydari wore a fuchsia ‘Gaurav Gupta’ gown but the pose seem too stern for such a beautiful outfit. Love the outfit and the hair but a cuff or bigger earrings would have look glamorous. Sigh!

FF-Ileana

Ileana D’cruz was spotted wearing a BCBG Max Azria one shoulder gown, the shades of blue were indeed soothing. The loose curls are what that are a mismatch with her serene outfit. Hope she would have tied her hair up in a pony or an updo. As for the outfit, I do like the gown due to its colours.

FF-Sophie

Sophie Choudry in ‘CUE by Rohit Gandhi + Rahul Khanna’ outfit looked smoking hot. The outfit had glittery accessories & shoes to complete the look. Sophie can surely carry the sheer neckline well without looking tacky. 🙂

FF-Raveena

Raveena Tandon in a Manish Malhotra Anarkali………….She did look pretty waist up but I felt Raveena could do way better than this look. Seeing her in Anarkalis has become a routine. How about adding sarees & gowns to the collection?

Screen Awards 2013

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on January 14, 2013

Screen Awards 2013 held in aamchi Mumbai, had many celebrities line up on the red carpet. Here is an update at who wore what & how did they fare??

Photo Courtesy : MissMalini.com

Screen-Amitabh

Starting with the legend himself, Amitabh Bachchan walked the red carpet in an off- white bandhgala with black trousers that matched his pocket square. He looked at ease in this attire and we love him for this very fact that he is always an original.

Screen-Deepika

Deepika Padukone who is always amazingly dressed up for any occasion, left me high & dry in this look of hers. The D&G lace gown in teal fell flat on Deepika…………..plus not a fan of the big hair. I wish Deepika would have pulled her hair in an updo & worn strappy sandals to make this outfit work. Sigh! 😦

Screen-Parineeti

Parineeti Chopra is super cute, but her style here is not. I do love the ‘Sabyasachi ‘skirtthough but the blouse & the big bow belt spoil the entire look. The look is neither formal nor casual…………in fact not fit for the red carpet at a grand awards event. I so wish PArineeti would have opted for a choli or a corset instead of a button-up shirt. 😦 😦

Screen-Sonakshi

Sonakshi Sinha wore a ‘Falguni& Shane Peacock’ outfit for the awards event. Wish had the full length image of hers but from the looks of it, Sonakshi does look good.

Screen-Chitra

Chitrangada Singh in a ‘Roberto Cavalli’ gown & red lips look ‘super’ hot. Seeing her in so many amazing looks these days……… have to see more of her fabulous styles on the red carpet in future. As for this one………….Love it. 🙂

screen19

Sonali Bendre with hubby Goldie Behl in a Shahab Durazi outfit. The hairstyle made the entire look go ‘oh-so-wrong’ for Sonali. This dress called for voluminous hair plus throw in some beautiful diamonds for that polished look. Not liking this look one bit 😦


Screen-Alia

The cast of ‘Student of the Year’ were dressed to the nines…………not just Alia Bhatt but the gentlemen Varun Dhawan & Sidharth Malhotra do look their very best. Alia is wearing a ‘Gaurav Gupta’ outfit in bronze. Like it…..absolutely. 🙂

Screen-Arjun

Arjun Rampal did what he does best…………..pose looking absolutely ‘perfect’ on the red carpet. Dressed in black suit, this man is like a dream for every fashionista  since it is hard to find any flaws in his style. 🙂 🙂


Screen-Genelia

Genelia & Riteish Deshmukh were also dressed up for the occasion……..Genelia wore a ‘Roberto Cavalli’ gown nd IFP thinks she did look fabulous. Love the hair too. As for Riteish……..the satin blue trimmings on a tuxedo……………Really???

Screen-Kat

Katrina Kaif in a ‘Naeem Khan’ gown did catch my eye this time…………thank god she took some risk in this shimmer black outfit. Love her demure look and wish she continues these fabulous looks in future too. 🙂

Screen-Malaika

Malaika Arora Khan in a black lacey number which had a sexy back [how evident is it??]. But I beg Malaika to give us more looks in gowns and Indian attire. IFP has seen enough of these short dresses………….need a change. 😦

Screen-Mughda

Mughda Godse looked good in black lehenga but I wish she would have added a neck piece to glam this look up. Maybe it’s just me……..but it was nice to see Mughda get her groove back on the red carpet though.

Screen-Neha

Neha Dhupia never gives me a chance to complain………….she is seen here dressed in ‘Nupur Kanoi’ outfit with hair pulled back in a bun while only her eyes are highlighted in her make-up. The jewels are kept to the minimum with only cuff in place………..like it. 🙂


Screen-Yami

Yami Gautam looked refreshingly different in this emerald green outfit by designer Carmen Marc Valco. She finished this look with emerald earrings to match the outfit. Love it & wish to see her more on the red carpet. 🙂

 

INDIA-ARTS-ENTERTAINMENT

Vidya Balan has been lately opting for more Kanjeevarem sarees on the red carpet. We do love the traditional weaves of our country but I wish she would also try Patola, Paithani, Benarasi and Mysore silk sarees too. And definitely go lighter on the jewellery part by limiting it to a single piece which compliment her look. But none the less, IFP does give her credit for bringing the traditional weaves back in vogue.

Hello! Hall of Fame Awards 2012

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on December 14, 2012

IFP reviews the formal black carpet in this case at the Hello! Hall of Fame Awards 2012.

Photo Courtesy : Koimoi.com

Hello5

 Madhuri Dixit Nene entered this event in a black ‘Dior’ gown with hair doneup and make-up kept simple. She does look pretty but wish the silhouette especially the skirt part of it was not pleated instead a slimmer fit would have worked wonders for Madhuri. Nonetheless adore her on & off the red carpet. 🙂

Hello4

Katrina Kaif was also awarded the Hello! award where she wore a purple leopard Dolce & Gabbana print gown. This lady is effortlessly beautiful but her style needs loads of drama. I wish to see Katrina in more structured outfits than just in doll like dresses. Sigh! 😦

Hello8

Anushka Sharma in Roberto Cavalli monochrome print outfit left me a bit disappointed. Firstly the outfit is too plain and required accessorizing plus the old fashioned hair. This look gives me the feel of a gown without any glam quotient. 😦 ………..Not a fan of the dress.

Hello7

Sridevi along with hubby Boney Kapoor & daughter Jhanvi were spotted at the awards. Sridevi opted for a Prabal Gurung gown which was a dream….though I would just add that the messy hair braid was not desirable here…..Sridevi still managed to wow me. 🙂 🙂

Hello6

Ranbir Kapoor in jodhpuri pants & a jacket………….nice outfit but wrong occasion. How I wish he would have combined a jodhpuri jacket along with the pants to complete this formal look. Not a fan of the stubble as well. 😦

Hello3

Arjun & Meher always make a good looking pair at any red carpet event. Arjun in his basic black suit was complemented by wife Meher’s golden sequin gown. Though not a fan of the gown but Meher sure makes this look work.


Hello9

Sonali Bendre opted for this bright coloured saree with a nude colour sequin blouse. I am taken aback by so many colours in one outfit……….this one is way too filmy for me. 😦

 

Hello10

Sussane Roshan in a leopard print ‘Dolce & Gabbana’ outfit. For the occasion, this dress fits the bill. Thank lord that Sussane kept this look gracefully simple is minimal accessories. Like it… 🙂

Hello11

Priyanka Chopra received the Hello! Award in her Dolce & Gabbana gown…………Every red carpet event I am sure to spot Priyanka in pastels………….Wish she would opt for more lively colours as seeing her in pastels is getting way too boring for me. 😦

Marrakech Film Festival 2012

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on December 4, 2012

Marrackech Film Festival which was held in Morocco paid tribute to Indian cinema where numerous Bollywood celebrites graced the red carpet. Here is a look at the red carpet of this event.

Priyanka

Priyanka Chopra & Ileana D’Cruz made it on the red carpet of Marrakech Film Festival where their movie ‘Barfi’ was showcased. I did happen to see Ileana at the Mumbai International airport on her way to the festival dressed in her casual bests. Even on the red carpet Ileana gets my vote in this Tarun Tahiliani outfit over Priyanka’s choice in ‘Manish Malhotra’ lehenga. I felt that Priyanka’s hair killed the entire look but her outfit was beautiful. Style wise Ileana looked amazing with her updo and the saree-gown outfit.

Pri4

Glad Priyanka opted for black saree from Ritu Kumar’s recent collection. The lace sleeve blouse & the straight hair made Priyanka look uber sexy……..I am all for this alluring look. 

Hrithik

Hrithik Roshan along with wife Sussane made a dashing red carpet appearance after a long time. Hrithik was dressed in tuxedo while Sussane wore a Abu Jani – Sandeep Khosla design.

MArra9

Hrithik also looked good in white tuxedo on Day 2 at the film festival while Sussane kept it simple in a black gown. Wish Sussane would add in more colour to her choices than always play safe when it comes to dressing up for the red carpet.

Marra

Arjun & Mehr Rampal were present at this event, wherein Arjun’s latest movie ‘Chakravyuh’ was screened. Mehr stayed true to her favorite designer ‘Tarun Tahiliani’ though I wish she would have taken a dupatta with this outfit………..basic black bandhgala for Arjun & complimenting him in a black & golden anarkali, This couple do rock the red carpet with an ease. 🙂

Marra2

Malaika Arora Khan went the traditional route in this ‘Manish Malhotra’ lehenga though the outfit is simple but Malaika made it work with beautiful accessories. 🙂

Marra3

Kalki Koechlin & Anurag Basu also made an appearance on the red carpet……..Kalki’s choice was ‘Sabyasachi’ outfit & a hairband matching it while Anurag was the surprise in a bandhgala. The couple did look good and do get IFP’s thumbs up for co-ordinating their looks so well. 🙂 🙂

Marra4

As much as I am a fan of Amitabh Bachchan, the shiny jackets that he wears always make me cringe the moment I look at them. Sirji please opt for colors which soothe the eye not make them wanna shut due to it’s shine. 😦

Marra5

Sharmila Tagore is always a beautiful sight on or off the red carpet. She spells elegance & class in every look of hers. At this film festival Sharmilaji wore a pink as well as a blue saree. I loved the way she co-ordinated her saree with a rich embroidered, velvet jacket.

Marra6

Sridevi who never stops to amaze me also opted for a ‘Manish Malhotra’ outfit in red & blue. Though I am not a fan of floor length anarkali but Sridevi looked fabulous in this one.

Marra7

Marra8

Socialite & Dior Ambassador in India Kalyani Chawla went the Anamika Khanna way in this beautiful golden beige lehenga. Though I do wish she would have used more eye-catching jewelry with this outfit. Nonetheless she did make her mini Dior blend well with her look.

‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ Premiere

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on November 14, 2012

 

Yashraj Films Diwali offering ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ premiered at the Yashraj Studios in Mumbai. Displays of Movies directed by Yash Chopra adorned the canvas on the red carpet. In the memory of the late director YRF had this showcasing where all the bigwigs of Bollywood attended in order to pay their respects to the great film-maker. IFP gets you the update on the red carpet of this event.

The leading ladies of this movie looked goo posing on the red carpet along with Shahrukh Khan. Anushka wore a blue, shimmer gown by designer ‘Roberto Cavalli’ while Katrina stuck to her favourite ‘Tarun Tahiliani’ saree style gown in golden. Out of these 2 pretty ladies, I am wavering more towards Anushka’s red carpet style…………but Katrina did look beautiful. SRK was dressed in a tuxedo and posed with the cast, wife & friends.

Gauri Khan also opted for a ‘Tarun Tahiliani’ saree style gown in blue. The clutch looked out of place with this outfit……though Gauri did work the outfit well the styling of this look could have been way better.

The entire Bachchan family attended this premiere. Amitabh & Jaya Bachchan were dressed for the occasion with Amitabh opting for a tuxedo while Jaya wore a graceful saree from her personal collection.

Abhishek & Aishwarya posed for the cameras where Aishwarya opted for Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla design…as for Abhishek he went for a bandhgala in black. I wish Aishwarya would not start opting for more fitting silouettes since she has lost so much of baby weight. Wish to see her flaunt in beautiful sarees……………have seen too many of these voluminous anarkalis on her off late.

Sridevi and Boney Kapoor walked in for the premiere……..sridevi looked glorious in a peach, shimmer saree [my guess – Manish Malhotra]. 🙂 🙂 She matures like red wine with each passing day.

Madhuri and Dr. Shriram Nene attended the premiere, where Madhuri was in a pink saree while Dr. Nene went for a casual look with a dinner jacket over denims. I wish Madhuri would experiment more with her hair……….maybe an updo for a change 🙂

Preity Zinta was the sunshine at this premiere……….she looked beautiful in a canary yellow saree with floral motifs all over. IFP does like the outfit plus the colour scores browny points from me………:-)

Aamir Khan made an entry with wife Kiran Rao. Aamir seemed to be experimenting with a new style of combining a vest with baggy pants……….unfortunately the pants were what went wrong in this look which he topped off with ankle high boots. 😦 As for Kiran…………no complaints for her look which was neat & sleek.

Hrithik roshan was present with his family too. Posing here with wife Sussane who was dressed in a pink Abu Jani – Sandeep Khosla anarkali. Dress whcih I do like……….it is the oversized clutch which I don’t like with this outfit. As for Hrithik……….formals might have looked better on the red carpet……….:-(

Akshay Kumar & Twinkle Khanna made an appearance post their new baby girl was born. Twinkle wore an Abu Jani – Sandeep Khosla design as well in beige & bronze but it was the big hair that made the look go wrong. The emerald earrings and Bottega Veneta clutch is classy but not crazy for this look. :-(. Akshay Kumar did look dapper but it were his shoes that made me sigh…..SIGH.

Imran Khan who has donned a mustache and looks every bit like a Haryanvi but still handsome. Wife Avantika was trying to channel vintage look with the hairdo & outfit. IFP does like the saree but the hair messed it up. She is young and should bring out that image of hers than try to look older than her actual age……. 😦

Rani Mukherjee was in her signature style – ‘Sabyasachi’ lehenga . Rani did look nice in this outfit especially with the pearl strings. on the red carpet IFP likes this look of hers….:-)

Sonam Kapoor in Elie Saab gown for the premiere……the outfit is beautiful but on Sonam it comes out to be heavy and voluminous. The gown does was beautiful detailing though but the entire look is not working on Sonam.

Rekha was all glam & glitter at the premiere in a golden Kanjeevarem saree. I would love to get into her wardrobe just to see her awesome collection of Kanjeevarem sarees. Though the colour is too bright for me…………..it works on Rekha. No complains here ……….:-)

Parineeti Chopra opted for a ‘Gauri-Nainika’ gown in black……………this structured gown  required more definition in terms of styling. The hair is too soft for this outfit o=plus the clutch adds to my woes…………..a sharp hairdo combined with demure make-up should have done the trick………and swap that clutch with a shimmer one please. Not liking this look one bit…….. 😦

Juhi Chawla was accompanied by her husband Jai Mehta. Juhi also stuck to her signature style of anarkalis with wedge kolhapuris……..I seriously wish to see Juhi in glamorous sarees and beautiful kurtis rather than see her in this look every time…..another sigh from my end. 😦

Mini Mathur has me drooling over her saree choices…………at the premiere too she wore a beautiful white saree with colourful border.  She poses here with her husband Kabir Khan…………IFP likes her look as she manages to stand out of the crowd. 🙂

Ameesha Patel looked good in a white gown with dangling earrings and a shimmer clutch. I think this might be one of her better looks in recent days………IFP likes. 🙂

People’s Choice Awards 2012

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on October 28, 2012

People’s Choice Awards has arrived in India finally…………..the only award show  honouring people from various fields of  pop culture across Bollywood, music, television and sports. Celebrities from the silver screen as well as television were in attendance at this glam event. IFP gets you a look at who wore what & how did they fare?

Katrina Kaif walked in looking like a doll in a Valentino lace tier dress. Many fashionistas did not fancy her strappy sandals in purple which even I would agree on………..maybe pairing a nude peep toe pumps might have done the trick but on the whole this outfit desperately needed a pop of colour. For the red carpet this look is way too simple and the glamour factor is missing. Katrina undoubtedly looked pretty but one needs to stand out on the red carpet rather than blending in especially if you are a celebrity. 😦

Madhuri walked in with her husband Dr. Shriram Nene….Madhuri was dressed in a pink Manish Malhotra anarkali which did make her look different than her usual style of heavily embellished sarees. IFP likes this look of Madhuri and appreciates the fact that she has been experimenting with new styles lately. As for Dr. Nene……he is always dressed like a gentleman so why complain? 🙂

Looked who just made an appearance on the red carpet post her recent wedding…….Kareena Kapoor is definitely a sight in white one shoulder gown by designer David Meister. Red lips were the part that caught my eye especially reminded me of the song from her upcoming movie ‘Talaash’ in which she has flaunted dark lips. On the whole Kareena looked good in this outfit…..she knows how to make heads turn. 🙂

Priyanka Chopra wore a ‘Amato Haute Couture’ ….the entire look looked a bit wasted interms of styling. An oversized cuff did no good neither did the nude pumps or the tousled hair. Colour was missing from this entire look………wish Priyanka would opt for more darker shades in future. The pastels on her have become a routine. 😦

Sameera Reddy rocked the red carpet in her choice of ‘Dior’ gown in hot red…….IFP likes this demure look. Plus the cuff & the dangling earrings made it look all the more alluring. Need I say anymore 🙂 🙂

Sagarika Ghatge made an appearance in Surily Goel outfit and Bottega Veneta clutch in hot pink. She did look pretty in this look…..longer earrings would have looked good on this look. IFP is loving her pink clutch though. 🙂

Parineeti Chopra opted for a white ‘Anita Dongre’ design which needed accessories in colour. Plus the length of the gown seems a bit overwhelming on her petite frame. Parineeti is young and can experiment with her looks so why stick to this safer option which does no good to her cute face. 😦

Hema Malini also walked the red carpet in a pink saree [my guess would be Neeta Lulla] at the event. Love the saree but not in awe of the blouse which makes the look rather very crowded. Sigh 😦

Zarine Khan was looking hot in a jewel tone green outfit that had sequin bustier paired with matching clutch. From the looks of it IFP does like this look and Zarine did look beautiful in it. 🙂

GQ Men of the Year Awards 2012

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on October 2, 2012

GQ ‘Men of the Year’ Awards which is an annual affair, was held in Mumbai and the celebs graced this event in their best attire. ‘Indian Fashion Police’ gets you a low down on who wore what and how did they fare??

Now somebody has been taking style tips from his fashionista daughters………Glad to see Anil Kapoor in a Tuxedo which he style with a muffler. The clean shave look definitely got browny points from my side………….love this sophisticated ‘Dolce & Gabbana’ look on this handsome man. 🙂 🙂 🙂

Amitabh Bachchan who despite being unwell, walked the red carpet of this event in a Jodhpuri jacket. All I can say is that he has made the Jodhpuri jacket look so fashionable, do I need to complaint about it?? 🙂 🙂

Kajol who lately has been catching our attention for her amazing wardrobe choices, opted for a ‘Prabal Gurung’ satin dress. Though many bloggers were not in awe of this look, IFP felt that it was just the shoes which marred the look. I personally like the outfit and Kajol’s hair & make-up in this look. Ajay Devgan did look dapper in his suit and as a couple, I do like the pair very much. The only hitch is that Kajol’s outfit could have been styled better…… 😦

Vidya Balan was again seen in a Sabyasachi saree in dual tone which we have seen something similar on Sridevi few weeks earlier. Vidya did look good but I wish she would have accesorised a bit. IFP thinks Sridevi made this look work much better which you can check here.

Deepika Padukone in a red hot ‘Gaurav Gupta’ lace gown which I can describe as ‘Vintage meets contemporary’. The gown with it’s sheer lace detailing to show off Deepika’s hot bod is soften by her vintage style hairdo. Thankfully Deepika kept other things to bare minimum……………..IFP loves this look of hers. 🙂 🙂 🙂

It was a delight to see Konkona on the red carpet after ages especially when she looked so good in this saree combined with a print blouse. Handloom silks are not an easy one to carry off but Konkona does the job so effortlessly. IFP likes this look. 🙂 🙂

Siddharth Mallya surprised us by dressing in a white Tuxedo which on anyone else would have not looked so sleek. But that still leaves me with a question is why do men opt for white?? 😉

John Abraham walked in hand-n-hand with Priya Runchal who looked fabulous in a red ‘Victoria Beckham’ gown will accesorising the rest in black. The soft curl hairdo and a smile are a sure winner on the red carpet……..as for John who thankfully was dressed in formals did look good. But it was Priya al the way who won IFP’s style votes………….. 🙂 🙂 🙂

Nargis Fakhri wowed the crowd in a Roberto Cavalli which she glamed up with a chunky necklace. The outfit fits her like a glove but it definitely has to be the accessories which get her a 10 on 10 score. IFP loves this look of Nargis. 🙂 🙂 🙂

Jacqueline Fernandes opted for a Amit GT fish tail gown in black and boy did she make this outfit work. The hair is what I am crazy about……..sleek, pushed back hairdo which blended perfectly well with her look. No complains here 🙂 🙂

I wonder if Neil Nitin Mukesh just walked off from his film shoot and forgot to change his costume. Unfortunately that was not the case………..GQ did have it’s very own shiny disco ball the moment Neil walked in. Sad to see bad outfits sometimes happen to the most handsome faces. 😦 😦 😦

Sarah Jane Dias was a vision in blue ‘AM:PM gown [Ankur Modi & Priyanka Modi]. The drape of the gown was beautiful and the hairdo of Sarah was alluring. IFP likes to see Sarah don the divalicious look at this red carpet. Perfect I say…… 🙂 🙂 🙂

Dia Mirza wore an Anita Dongre saree in black & white but somehow this look did not stand out a bit. Wish Dia would have opted for a bright coloured saree instead of going for a safe route in black & white. Missing the glamour quotient here . 😦 😦 😦

 

Shazahn Padamsee wore a ‘Shivan-Naresh’ gown which IFP has no complains about. But absolutely disappointed with the big clutch which took away the emphasis from the dress. The outfit is perfect as Shazahn is young and can experiment with her looks for the red carpet but this entire look lacks good styling. ‘Yay’ 🙂 for the outfit but ‘Nay’ 😦 for the styling & clutch.

 

Rahul Bose makes me smile every time he walks the red carpet. Maybe it has something to do with the ease he carries off any sort of fabric with style. He wore a velvet dinner jacket, which is not an easy thing to carry off but on Rahul the entire look works well. He kept the vest and trousers simple with a white bow-tie. Like it…….absolutely. 🙂 🙂

 

Kalki Koechlin wore a ‘Gaurav Gupta’ gown in golden but somehow this look of Kalki fell flat. The detailing on the bodice & it’s fit bothered me a whole lot. On someone who is a risk taker, it might have worked but Kalki kept her look absolutely simple. IFP thinks this look needed to be more daring in terms of styling. As for Anurag Kashyap……..thank you for ditching the denims. 😉

 

Esha Gupta in a Rohit Gandhi-Rahul Khanna gown in give me the vibes of vintage inspired look. But in comes the shoes as spoilers. Esha did look pretty in this ensemble but the strappy sandals make me wonder if Esha had a good look in the full length mirror before stepping out. IFP  thinks open toe pumps in neutral shade would have worked since gowns require ample of heel. 😦 😦

Vogue Beauty Awards 2012

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on August 3, 2012

Vogue India held the Vogue Beauty Awards yesterday in Mumbai where the Bollywood as well as Page 3 celebs walked the red carpet. IFP gets you a closer look at what these celebrities wore at this event………that’s really what we love to do 😉 ……….there were few hits and many misses on this red carpet, so let’s find out who looked good?

Ms. PAdukone has been in the news these days for the right reasons………I am talking about her new stylish avatar since the movie ‘Cocktail’ which has won her great reviews and loads of appreciation for her wardrobe choices in the movie. At Vogue Beauty Awards too Deepika came dressed in a Dolce & Gabbana outfit which had shimmer half below a black bodice. On someone else the outfit would have not worked, but Deepika managed to carry it off effortlessly with those wavy hair, cuffs and a black clutch to match. IFP likes her look for the evening and gives a thumbs up to Deepika. 🙂 🙂

Sisters Kajol and Tanisha also walked the  red carpet in designer ensembles. Love to see Kajol all dressed up and looking beautiful to the hilt. The gown was by designer ‘Ayesha Depala’ which made Kajol look like a ‘Diva’……plus the hair, the clutch, the earrings and the nude peep toes all complimented her look well. As for sister Tanisha who opted for a ‘James Ferreira’ gown, I felt the fit of the bodice was not as desired and the voluminous wavy hair just took away all the attention. Out of the two, Kajol definitely gets IFP’s vote for looking so elegant. 🙂

 

Zarine Khan went the ‘jumpsuit’ way to look different at this event and boy she did work the style well on the red carpet. Seen here wearing a ‘Zara’ outfit, Zarine kept the look simple with a black clutch, belt and shoe for this event. IFP likes her look and the fact that she stood out on her own in a graceful manner. 🙂

 

Sonali Bendre in ‘Christian Dior’ spelt ‘Fabulous’ in every frame. The understated look of the gown worked well for this event………..IFP loves her hairdo while her look was completed with a black clutch and open toe pumps. Sonali added a cocktail ring and studs for some bling but thankfully she left the outfit to do all the talking. 🙂 🙂

 

Nargis Fakhri went the ‘Roberto Cavalli’ way for the beauty awards…….the tier dress unfortunately did not make an impression on the red carpet. The make-up and the hair did look good though…..wish Nargis would have opted for something demure than this. 😦

 

Diana Penty looked gorgeous in a ‘Gucci’ one shoulder gown that had metal detailing on the shoulder and sexy shoes to match it. Diana radiated a ‘girl next door meets a sexy siren’ look on the red carpet…..pinned up hair gave a ‘sweet & simple’ look whereas the outfit, the shoe, and the other accessories were demure. IFP liked Diana’s look at this event. 🙂

 


Dia Mirza was spotted in a new hairdo which did make her look pretty but her look on the red carpet spelt disastor whether it was her dress or her shoes. None of these did any justice to Ms. Mirza who is usually dressed well at such events. IFP does understand that Dia wanted to have fun with her new look…..unfortunately the choice of footwear spoilt this entire look. With hair like that I wish Dia would have opted for a maxi dress or a jumpsuit…………..IFP gives a thumbs down to this look 😦 😦

 

Ileana D’Cruz who will make her Bollywood debut with ‘Barfi’ wore a printed ‘Roberto Cavalli’ gown which had lace details. Not a fan of this look….wish Ileana would have been more adventurous to opt for gown in one solid color rather than going floral. Sigh…..sometimes bad clothes happen to good looking people. 😦

Farhan Akhtar had his wife Adhuna as his arm candy for the evening……..Farhan dressed like a perfect gentleman in a basic black suit  to compliment Adhuna’s lokk in grey. Adhuna was her quirky self in this asymmetrical but I so want to change her shoes and give her matching pumps. But as a couple posing on the red carpet, IFP does like them for sure. 🙂

Simone Singh put on a blazer above a shimmer dress and was very successful at spoiling the look without much effort. Why could she not go without the blazer and just wear a dress underneath with an elaborate neck piece……….IFP loves the lady and feels she has loads of potential to look gorgeous on the red carpet, wonder why she opted for a blazer that had too long sleeves and did nothing for her look. 😦

Mandira Bedi was demure in this sexy little black dress which had a cleavage cut-out. She combined this outfit with a hot pink clutch and silver shimmer sandals. IFP likes the dress but not the styling of this look. The clutch looked out of place while the ankle tie-up sandals did not blend in. 😦

Poorna Jagannathan was seen in a ‘Bibhu Mohapatra’  gown looking every bit ‘statuesque’. This dreamy outfit combined with a metallic color clutch and stylish curly updo worked well on the red carpet. IFP likes this look on Poorna which is very different from her usual fun self. 🙂

Shenaz Treasurywala was seen in a ‘Pria Kataria Puri’ design which we had incidently seen her wear last year in New York as well. This halter dress required the hair to be pulled back and styled away from the face. While the trail of the dress was supposed to be let loose…………….now you know what messed things up on the red carpet. Shenaz please leave few things to the designer or the stylist instead of applying your own ideas. 😦 😦

Model Angela Jonsson was seen in a ‘Gaurav Gupta’ design which had sheer neckline. Not a fan of the outfit but Angela did make the look work with her styling. The hair, the accessories and the shoes did make her look good on the red carpet. On anyone else, the dress would have never made an impression. 🙂

Gul Panag was all shimmer in this one shoulder little black dress…..add in nude Mary Janes and an oversized clutch and you have a perfect recipe for red carpet disaster. Wish the puffed sleeve would magically disappear along with the clutch & the shoes……IFP would have styled it with strappy killer heels and an understated small clutch. Sigh….:-( 😦

Monica Dogra kept the look simple in this ‘Rohit Gandhi-Rahul Khanna’ design but it left me asking one question……..Why is there no accessory in this look??? A silver clutch, a metallic cuff, chandelier earrings or an eye-catching neck-piece could have made the look more appealing.  Just the gown and loose curls make the look feel like so ‘Blah’. IFP did not like the look just for the fact that the styling was not red carpet worthy. 😦 😦

Dipannita Sharma channelled the looks of 1940s in this shimmer jumpsuit and hairstyle. This is adventurous for the red carpet but the hairstyle still did not do any good to Dipannita’s looks. How I wish a simple pulled back ponytail would replace this hideous hairdo. IFP does not like the look one bit. 😦 😦

Shaheen Abbas was all smiles in silver one shoulder dress that had matching peep toes and an knuckle duster Alexander McQueen clutch. The look is sophisticated and thankfully not over the top. IFp likes Shaheen’s look on the red carpet. 🙂

Event Update : First Look of ‘Heroine’

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on July 26, 2012

The first look of ‘Heroine’ is out and I can hardly wait for Kareena Kapoor’s upcoming flick. I am sure the lady would be looking perfect in every frame and it would be worth seeing the ‘Demure’ Kapoor  in action. Director Madhur Bhandarkar along with Kareena Kapoor & Arjun Rampal released the first look at Cinemax Theatre in Mumbai.

Kareena Kapoor stepped out for this event in a gorgeous, red hot ‘Emanuel Ungaro’ jumpsuit which was accessorized  with a belt, cuff and golden open toes. IFP says ‘Wowww!!’ to her look and look forward to more fabulous looks in the movie also.

Check out the trailer of ‘Heroine’ at the UTV – YouTube link here : http://www.youtube.com/user/UTVMotionPictures?feature=watch

Green Carpet at IIFA Awards 2012

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on June 11, 2012

IIFA 2012 were held in Singapore last weekend with a lot of hoo-halla. As for us we waited to see the celebrities walk the green carpet at this event. Of course we wanted to see what each celeb wore to this event. Here is IFP’s review of the green carpet at IIFA Awards 2012.

Bipasha Basu swept people off their feet in this glorious ‘Gauri-Nainika’ gown. The red looked fabulous on her while the leopard print clutch adds the fun element to the outfit.IFP loves this demure look on her…………’sexy’ is how we can define this look in a word.

Bipasha wore a Shivan-Narresh designed saree to the event ‘IIFA Rocks’ on day 2 but not a fan of the look. IFP likes Bipasha in more sophisticated looks these days and this outfit does no justice to her. Plus the straight hair falls flat on this look. Thankfully the red gown saves the day.

Priyanka Chopra wore a pretty ‘Dolce & Gabbana’ strapless gown and looked absolutely heavenly on the green carpet. The hair, the make-up and the dangling earrings suited her look perfectly. The peach net gown which had floral detailing all over……..IFP likes the gown and Priyanka’s sophisticated style.

Vidya Balan has a new designer in tow………..she wore a ‘Masaba Gupta’ saree from her recent collection and is able to carry off the silhouette effortlessly. Though there is nothing much exciting about this look, Vidya does look pretty in this black ensemble…….hoping to see more contemporary looks on her in near future.

Rekha surprised us by showing up on the green carpet of IIFA 2012. She was in her signature look with a Kanjeevaram saree and traditional Indian jewellery. The only thing that looked out of place has to her clutch bag which did not match the outfit. Wish Rekha had opted for a potli bag in golden color. Otherwise no one makes a a Kanjeevaram look so glamorous as Rekha does.

Preity Zinta tried to wow us in this fuchsia gown  but the drapes gave the look away. IFP likes the hair though but the gemstone studded clutch or the neck piece fail to attract our attention. Overall not feeling this ‘Ramona Narang’ look on Preity since have seen this beautiful lady do better on the red carpet.

Sridevi seems to be growing younger by the day………IFP was stunned to see her in a Manish Malhotra saree that was coupled with a strapless blouse. The hair, the make-up, the jewels and the clutch…everything made her look amazing. One of our favorite looks from IIFA this year.

Nargis Fakhri also went red in this ‘Dior’ gown and side swept hairdo but unfortunately this look did not stun us.  Nargis is young and has a perfect body to take some fashion risks. I wonder why is she opting for gowns that do not flatter her body type. IFP wishes to see Nargis in  contemporary designer outfits than going safe.

Nargis opted for ‘Anaikka’ saree at the ‘IIFA Rocks’……IFP likes this contemporary saree look. The blouse had defined shoulders with all over metal detail work while the saree was kept simple with only a border matching the blouse. A risk definitely paid off well in this case.

IFP also spotted the lovely Dia Mirza in a ‘RockyS’ dress in ash grey color for the ‘IIFA Rocks’ event. The net silhouette had beautiful detail work on the bodice part but somehow failed to make a lasting impression on our minds. I think the length of the dress if kept longer would have looked better on Dia.

Dia wore an off-white saree with golden & silver border by ‘Anita Dongre’  and combined it with a choker neckpiece. Love the saree from Anita’s resort wear collection but the jewellery seems a bit out of place here. IFP wishes Dia would have opted for something in gold to match the saree border.

Kalki Koechlin has been riding the wave of being one of the better dressed in Bollywood. She did not disappoint us this time around as she walked the green carpet in a beautiful ‘Victoria Beckham’ dress with a broad envelope clutch. She looked pretty in a wavy hairdo plus the fuchsia color made her glow on the red carpet. IFP likes it and you???

Parineeti Chopra arrived in style at IIFA in this ‘Jatin Varma’ gown which had a fitted bodice underneath the net silhouette. This might not be one of the best looks at IIFA but Parineeti did look cute in this blue outfit. IFP digs the fit of this gown that suits Parineeti’s petite frame. All I can say that this young women is just getting started in the style department, hope to see more amazing looks from her.
