66th Cannes Film Festival – Day 2

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on May 17, 2013


After an adventurous Day 1, Indian celebrities brought in Day 2 with a lot of style. But it was Freida Pinto who took the cake on Day 2 with her vintage inspired look. Freida looked absolutely like a Hollywood starlet in this grey gown by ‘Sanchita’ topped with 1920s inspired hairstyle. One of her best looks so far at Cannes for sure.


Sonam Kapoor again surprised people in this voluminous ball gown by Dolce & Gabbana. Love the colour of the outfit plus the fact that Sonam kept the styling simple & let the print do all the talking. Though I am yet to see a look that makes me go ‘WOW’ but this is pleasantly different than her earlier red carpet looks.



The day is never gonna be complete without Vidya Balan’s red carpet appearance………..Ms. Balan who again opted for Sabysachi added alot of jewels by designer ‘Pankaj Surana’. Not a big fan of nathani on Vidya since it seems to be an extra add-on which was unnecessary. The look might have worked better without the nathani as the necklace looked alluring on this silhouette. As for the outfit… complains at all. No one could have made Vidya look so elegant as Sabysachi did.

66th Cannes Film Festival – Day 1

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on May 16, 2013

66th Cannes Film Festival went on floors with the star studded première of ‘The Great Gatsby’ where Mr. Amitabh Bachchan walked the red carpet with the cast of the movie.


But I was sorely disappointed to see him in a sequin studded dinner jacket…………truly wish he would have opted for a simpler silhouette than opt for too much of shine.


The photocall session of ‘The Great Gatsby’


Vidya Balan was seen in a Sabyasachi Lehenga on the red carpet of the opening ceremony. The draping of the dupatta definitely spoilt the entire look………..wish the draping was done more neatly……..even better if Vidya would have worn the dupatta on the side & not covering her head. As for the jewels & the outfit I have no complains at all.



The Jury members walk the red carpet at the opening ceremony.




I loved the saree look of Vidya at the photocall of the Jury at Cannes. The look was by Sabyasachi & jewels by Amrapali but love the sophistication it had. Wish Vidya would have worn this look to the red carpet………….sigh.


Freida Pinto walked the red carpet in a sorbet pink colour Gucci gown………… for her petite frame I found the gown a bit too overwhelming plus the hairdo did not do any good to her look. Freida would have rocked the red carpet if she would have left her hair open and shortened the length of the gown a wee bit.



Sonam Kapoor wore ‘Anamika Khanna’ & a nathani by ‘Sunita Kapoor’………..the lace saree was combined with a  beaded jacket. The look had a very international feel to it but I thought the nathani made the look ‘too desi’. A pair of studd earrings might have worked better. But we do know that we can only expect something new from Sonam every time she walks the red carpet. 


Also spotted were Sonam & Freida together before walking the red carpet. The two beauty ambassador of  L’oreal did look fashionable. Sonam is wearing a saree by Huemn and earrings by Suhani Pittie.


Mallika Sherawat in a golden colour gown & looking all polished was a shock to me since she did look pretty. Though not a fan of the gown but Mallika’s hair & make-up plus the way this entire look was put together was worth a note. Hope to see a classy Mallika emerge at future sightings on the red carpet.

Cannes Film Festival 2012 – Day 3

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on May 19, 2012

I rejoice on hearing the news that Sonam Kapoor has left for Cannes, I truly look forward to what history this pretty lady will create on the red carpet. IFP loved her first appearance at Cannes last year and definitely her red carpet walk will be the most anticipated one for Indian fashionistas. Meanwhile, our very own star in Hollywood Freida Pinto is making waves with her style at Cannes 2012. Let’s check out her summer look on Day 3 which we loved……..

Shutterbugs spotted Freida at the photocall for ‘Desert Dancer’ held in Cannes. Freida wore a ‘Salvatore Ferragamo’ Resort 2012 outfit looking every bit like a celeb. The halter top was paired skirt in geometric print…..the outfit was combined with two-tone strappy sandals. For someone as young as her, I feel she could carry this summer outfit with alot of ease. Her sun-kissed look was kept simple with eye make-up and gloss while hair was styled in a pony.

Cannes Film Festival 2012 – Day 2

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on May 18, 2012

Indian media thought that Day 1 would be truly exciting to see many Indian celebs walk the red carpet, but were left a bit disappointed. But I can assure that the festival has just started, we will surely have many surprises to look forward to. As for Day 2, I loved Freida Pinto’s look in lime green……….that was thankfully fresh. Freida walked the red carpet again for the première of ‘Rust & Bone’.

Ms. Pinto took a risk with this color that did pay off on Day 2. IFP loves the beaded gown from ‘Atelier Versace’ and gives it a thumbs up. It had to be the color that scored browny points from IFP. The make-up was minimal and the hair pulled back in a pony. The look was young and chic.

Freida arrived in style in a ‘Paco Rabbane’ outfit at the L’oreal party held in Cannes. We like the dress but not feeling the hair which was too beauty pagent like. Out of the two IFP definitely loves her day look.

Also spotted was actress Fagun Thakrar attending Women In Film celebration which was organised by IFP, Calvin Klein Collection & Euphoria by Calvin Klein. She danced her way thru Cannes 2011 and seems to attract alot of shutterbugs this year too.

Cannes Film Festival 2012 – Day 1

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on May 17, 2012

Films, Red Carpet, Beauties, and the best in fashion. It never gets any bigger than seeing the new styles at Cannes film festival each year. Many trends world-wide get set here and IFP will surely keep you updated about our very own Indian celebs. So day 1 started off on a very fashionable note with Freida Pinto taking the red carpet as the brand ambassador of L’oreal Paris.

Freida Pinto opted for a pink Michael Angel gown and combined the look with ‘Chopard’ jewelry. The beaded bodice and the soft color works for us but the platform heels seems a little out-of-place with such a flowy ensemble. The hair and the make-up were undoubtedly flawless but wish Freida would have opted for a more demure outfit for the first day at Cannes,since this outfit does not make any lasting impression.

While daytime look was softer, Freida opted for an all ‘Versace’ black gown which had beads & mesh detailing for the after party at Cannes. Freida who is amazingly dressed on the red carpet at all international events, seems to have missed the mark with these choices on Day 1. IFP does not hate the looks but is not in awe either. Hope to get pleasantly surprised by our Indian celebs during the upcoming days at Cannes 2012.

Celebrities who work the ‘Gown’ trend

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on November 14, 2011

Bipasha Basu

Bipasha Basu should be known as ‘The Body’ of Bollywood as this lady has transformed herself  from flab to fab and continues to do better. She looked amazing on the red carpet whenever she has donned a gown…………she has the grace and of course the looks to carry off  this silhouette with utmost ease. Hence she makes it to our list of the Bollywood celebs who work the gown trend so fabulously.

Freida Pinto

Freida Pinto who has been making waves in Hollywood for her style and looks, definitely does justice to the ‘Gown’ trend. Her choices of designers as well as the color & the ‘fit’ of the gown. IFP does give 2 thumbs up for this lady who has the poise to carry off a gown and is able to woo everyone on the International red carpet.

Dia Mirza

She might not have many Bollywood ‘hits’ under her belt, but she is definitely a ‘Hit’ when it comes to her look on the red carpet. She makes the simplest silhouette look amazing on the red carpet. The hair is perfect, the  jewelry awesome, the dress is gorgeous………..sheer perfection. That is why she makes it to this list.

Sonam Kapoor

Sonam made us proud with her choice of ‘Jean Paul Gaultier’ gown at the Cannes and continnues this trend at home too. Dress her up in any designer creation and she carries it off flawlessly. Plus her selection of accessories, shoes and clutch are ‘to die for’. A true fashionista, she can transform from ‘Vintage’ to ‘Contemporary’ in no time. She always adds that elemnt of ‘fun’ in every look of hers and has been the most refreshing change on the red carpet.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan

She was the first ‘Indian’ celebrity to walk the Cannes red carpet wearing a gown and evven after 10 years she works this trend fabulously. Aishwarya made other ladies take this silhouette more seriously since her Miss World days and has experimented with so many styles. From Armani Prive to Roberto Cavalli………..he has dressed in the best designer ensemble and turned heads everywhere she went. I don’t think this list would be complete without her.

Deepika Padukone

Deepika Padukone who was a model before she entered Bollywood, looks alluring in any gown. Her tall, slender stature is best suited for this silhouette. She has tried many gown styles like one shoulder, off-shoulders, halter neckline and we have digged every single look of hers. She has also walked down the runway in numerous gown creations by the leading designers of India.

GQ ‘Men of the Year’ Awards

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on October 1, 2011

GQ magazine gave away ‘Men of the Year’ awards in Mumbai………………..and we  had to write about who wore what and how did they fair on the red carpet. So here we go……..

Shahrukh Khan has been voted the best dressed man in India but I sometimes wish he would experiment with a bit of color rather than always playing safe in black. Though he does look good in his statement black tuxedo complete with push back hair.

Mrs. Khan of the other hand is definitely a graceful dresser……..Gauri was seen at this event wearing an ‘Emilio Pucci’ lace dress, Judith Leiber clutch and Jimmy Choo shoes. I like the fact that she did not go all matchy-matchy with her accessories instead opted for a silver clutch & nude open toe heels. Simple, elegant and absolutely appropriate for the event.

Farhan Akhtar seems to have forgotten the essential of these Tux……………the bow-tie of course. A handsome face like him definitely would have looked better styled if he had taken a little more pain in completing the evening look……………rather than just walking in without the tie.

Anushka Sharma was seeing wearing this green ‘Dior’ gown with loose curls on one side…………I am not much into this color but I cannot deny the fact that Anushka looked absolutely amazing. On anyone else the outfit would not looked so good, but Anushka sure makes it work.

Freida Pinto posed for the shutterbugs in this ‘Versace’ gown………….unfortunately the sequin-feathered tail gown could not make Ms. Pinto stand out in the crowd. In a single colour, the gown had too much detail work which did no justice to Freida’s petite frame. I wish she would have chosen one of her knee-length dresses which she is able to work so flawlessly.

It was a surprise to see Prateik in a suit looking dapper plus with a pretty arm candy!!…………now that’s ice-cream with cherry on the top. The lady in question is British model Amy Jackson who will be seen in India films soon. As for Prateik, please dress this way for red carpet events, casuals are best left for time-out with buddies.

Deepika Padukone looked glamorous in this gown [my guess is Ramona Narang] but the shoes were just so wrong on this outfit. I wish she would have opted for strappy heels instead of pumps. The hair, the make-up and the lady all do look fabulous, but one wrong thing can make the entire outfit look bad.

We might have to wait to see Siddharth Mallya carve a niche in the business world, but this man definitely rocks on the red carpet. I do like his sense of style and the effort he puts in to look good at every event. Even here he looked neat in these tuxedos……….some established bollywood stars should make a note on ‘how to dress’ for glam events.

Imran Khan never makes a mistake when he has to dress up a formal event. I suppose his style at GQ event speak a lot about his sense of style. Love to see him in well tailored suits and tux…………perfect 10 on 10 every time. As for his wife Avantika, she did look pretty in her red wrap dress and bronze peep-toes.  Except for the hair, I do dig her outfit………….nice.

‘Vision in White’ is how Simi Garewal likes to keep her style……… doubt she looks incredible and absolutely defied aging but I do wish she would add more color to her styling in form of accessories. All white can be boring at times………..:-)

More pics coming your way.

Cannes Film Festival 2011 – Day 9

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on May 20, 2011

Day 9 will witness Freida Pinto taking over the limelight at Cannes.Here’s your look at how she looked while walking down the red carpet.

Freida Pinto

Freida Pinto came dressed to kill in a ‘Lanvin Fall 2010’ dress and looked absolutely ravishing. The event was amfAR’s Cinema Against AIDS Gala held during the Cannes Film Festival at Hotel Du Cap on May 19, 2011 in Antibes, France.The fact I love here is that where everyone else went for the gown look at this event, Freida choose a short dress which was perfect given her age. The minimum jewelery let the outfit take center stage but the shoes, clutch & belt were kept in plain black……………….hair & make-up……….I have no complaints either.

Also giving her company in this event was her Actor-Boyfriend Dev Patel who himself looked dapper in a suit.

Mallika Sherawat

Whenever I see a beautiful lady in white on the red carpet I am reminded of the phrase ‘Vision in White’ but seeing Mallika in this white feather outfit all I can think of is “What were you thinking lady???” The only thing pretty here would be the ‘Jimmy Choo’ shoes which she had also worn in golden yesterday. The dress does no justice to her figure and feels more like an Autumn/Winter collection…………….I wish Mallika would lose that big clutch of hers and the hair???…………..just don’t get me started on the hair part.
