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. ūüėČ

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 d√©colletage 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.

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.

IIFA Awards 2011 – Green Carpet

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on June 26, 2011

The Final day at IIFA Award 2011 arrived with so much of craziness all around. The entire Bollywood is have a ball at Toronto and making it’s presence felt in the far west. We have gotta see what the star looked like on the Green Carpet at this event………….even Hollywood celebrities turned up for the event………now that’s what I call Glam……

Shahrukh Khan

King Khan we know that you loooooooovvvvveeee black whenever you are on the red carpet, in this case the green carpet…………..but please give us a surprise once in a blue moon. He arrived in a basic black suit with a black shirt and to top it all a black tie………….he does look dapper, but I need a change from the routine………..seriously.

Bipasha Basu

Bipasha Basu looked every bit Glam in her Ramona Narang outfit in beige with golden accessories and coral nail paint. Though I feel the dress was just too short for the event but I am glad to know that she did change into a black gown afterwards before appearing on stage. Nonetheless she does justice to this outfit and looks great. Only she could have carried this outfit off with such an ease……..

Anil Kapoor and Hilary Swank

 

Handsome man with a beautiful woman as an arm candy are always a ‘Hit’ on the green carpet………….and Anil kept both these elements in his mind. Thank god he opted for a black suit with a golden beige tie looking every bit like a gentleman…….seems like he did take tips from beti Sonam…..:-) As for Hilary Swank, perfect is the only word for her.

Priyanka Chopra

Priyanka Chopra wore a ‘Manish Malhotra’ Summer collection for IIFA………….a white lucknowi detail work lehenga with silver gotta and a velvet blouse to add the much desired pop of colour. Love the outfit but it falls flat due to the styling part….. I wish she could have gathered the ‘pallu’ and left it on her left instead of drapping it across. But Priyanka does look pretty when it comes to her make-up and hair.

Malaika Arora Khan

Malaika Arora Khan came in to shock me with her choice of outfit…………a one shoulder lace number with a cut out waist pattern spoiled the look for this beautiful lady. Plus the heavy earrings did no good either. The hair, the accessories, the dress, sadly looked disastrous on Malaika. Let’s just say that it was not her day at the IIFA Awards.

Anushka Sharma

Anushka Sharma also came in as a surprise to me when she dressed up in a ‘Sabyasachi’ saree for the event. I had expected her to go in for a demure gown or a short dress…………..sadly this ensemble did not¬†excite. Seen this before on other actress as well¬†but Anushka looks pretty as ever. She even took home the trophy home………maybe Sabyasachi is lucky for the leading ladies of bollywood???

Sonakshi Sinha

Flawless, flawless, flawless is my review of this pretty young star…………….the all shimmer dress in black, a Bottega Veneta clutch and a pink flowers in her updo was what I am looking out for a red carpet look. Sonakshi just delivered that look effortlessly looking like a million bucks. Love the dress, the styling and the make-up. She gets two thumbs up for getting it right with her 1950s look on the red carpet……..

Sridevi 

Woooooooooooohhhhhhhhhoooooooo, Sridevi is such a Diva in this red gown which reminds me of aValentino due to the drape of the gown. The pulled back hair updo look, the diamond accessories, I am all eyes for her, even at this age she looks better than ever………….young ladies entering the filmi duniya, go take some lessons from her on how to be a star at any age.

Shilpa Shetty

Shilpa Shetty in an off shoulder black gown is a good idea but add in a chucky necklace and a bright large purple clutch with lace shoes…………….then you have the recipe for red carpet¬†disaster. But this time around hubby Raj Kundra looked good in this understated look…………Shilpa should have ideally ditched the clutch, opted for a ruby & diamond neck piece and wore a Jimmy Choos for this event………….I am sure she would have looked heavenly.

Sharmila Tagore

The gracious Sharmila Tagore was honoured with a Lifetime Achievement Award which made me think that she is way too young to get this award. I mean look at this pic above and you will¬†realize¬†that she still looks amazingly beautiful more than the actress these days. The saree, the jadau necklace, the simple hair & make-up…………….one word for this Diva – ‘Classic’. She is the Audrey Hepburn of Bollywood for sure.

Genelia D’souza

Genelia D’souza came all dressed in a Gaurav Gupta gown for the event, though I am not that impressed by the detail work on the one shoulder pattern plus the layered trail on the side……….I must say that Genelia still looked pretty in this outfit. The beige-golden colour and the hair were appropriate for such events, just the clutch somehow seemed out of place. I do expect Genelia to give us better red carpet look next time around.

IIFA Awards 2011 – Day 1

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on June 24, 2011

The Bollywood Oscars which some people address it as has kicked off with so much of hooo hallaa in Toronto yesterday Night. There was the premiere of Double Dhamaal also held at IIFA. Day 1 was for Press Meet with the stars attending the IIFA.Here is our feedback on Fashion at the IIFA.

Mallika Sherawat

Mallika Sherawat posing for the shutterbugs at the IIFA press meet in ‘Anita Dongre’ Resort/Summer collection…………..all I can say she looks flawless. I love it when she is dressed more in style than crying out loud for attention in revealing outfits. She gets my attention in this anyways without the outfit being loud…………..two thumbs up for Ms. Sherawat………….your choices are better these days than they were………

Anil Kapoor also came in dressed in grey pin stripe suit with blue undertones which somehow did no justice to his handsome being. I feel he would have looked much better had he opted for a darker shade. I am no fan of this look…………..Anil, you have two stylish daughters so please take their expert advice before stepping out for a major event like this.


Bipasha Basu was also present at this press meet where she wore a lace ‘Gauri & Nainika’ mini dress and nude heels plus her trademark loose curls. Bipasha as usual is always dressed to the nines though she could have given a better surprise by wearing something unique or different than her usual style of mini dress and I not a fan of lace. ¬†Lace I feel is a bit tricky when one has to wear it……..best suited as an under shirt with a blazer or a gown with detail work.


Kangna Ranaut

Kangna Ranaut reminded me so much of the 1950s Hollywood Glam era in this amazing one shoulder gown in pink. Double Dhamaal held a world premiere at the IIFA Awards in Toronto. The classic hairstyle, the dark lips, the glittery clutch……..she oozes omphh on this green carpet.though I am not a fan of the gown especially the fit of the bustier but Kangna seems to have done justice to this outfit with styling. The dress I think might be Monisha Jaisingh since it looks pretty similar to what Malaika Arora Khan had worn to Filmfare this year.

Lisa Ray

It was a happy sight to see Lisa Ray healthy and fit making a public appearance at IIFA……….after battling Cancer, she sure looked ready to party at the event in this gown though the army print was quite a let down stylewise. Plus a beautiful face like her needs something more feminine than military. I wish she would have opted for a bright colour to stand out on the Green carpet at this event.

Aashish Chaudhary

Aashish wore a sleek grey suit which was very ‘Resort’ type in true sense and looked amazing. I am all for his gelled back hair, the tinted glasses and the¬†French¬†beard with that suit…………though I wish I could get a full¬†length¬†pic of the same. Perfect dressing for the summers and thankfully not over the top.

Ritesh Deshmukh

Ritesh Deshmukh can dressed in a weird biker jacket, ripped denims and a tie…………….and I am totally numb seeing him in this attire. When will he start acting his age at least at such events. Why do some people always mess up the loads of golden¬†opportunities¬†that they are given to be a true celebrity. On this one, I feel he was absolutely the worst dressed for the event. Ritesh please take your dressing style more seriously.

Arshad Warsi & Maria Goretti

I wonder why Arshad loves shiny outfits……………like even this suit is an eye sore but the saving grace to this look would have to be the perfect arm candy in wife Maria Goretti.The browny points which Arshad lost were made up by his cute wife in this all ruffle dress but the satin pink ribbon is quite a distraction.
