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. 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.

Sharmila-PAdmaBhushan2

Sridevi-Padmashri

When it comes to style, these beautiful ladies never disappoint us………..Both Sharmila & Sridevi opted for silk sarees for this¬†occasion. Classic, Graceful and so beautiful.

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…….. ūüôā


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!! ūüė¶ ūüė¶


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. ūüė¶ ūüė¶ ūüė¶



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. ūüė¶ ūüė¶

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. ūüôā ūüôā

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. ūüė¶

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. ¬†ūüė¶

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 ūüôā

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. ūüôā

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. ūüôā



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. ūüė¶

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. ūüė¶

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 ūüôā

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. ūüôā

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. ūüôā



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. ūüôā

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?

‘BEST DRESSED’ of 2012

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on January 8, 2013

‘Indian Fashion Police’¬†brings in the new year with the most stylish & well dressed celebrities wwhom we have seen over the past year. Our picks for the year 2012 are based on the numerous times these celebrities have looked fabulous on the red carpet.

Deepika Padukone

DPK2

Deepika had me surprised this year with her style choices especially post her ‘Cocktail’ movie success. Loved her looks in the movie as well on the red carpet where she experimented with her looks even more. The choices of designer gowns and sarees have ¬†made IFP sit up & take a good look at her. Deepika has transformed from a girl to a demure woman……………IFP had to undoubtedly put her on this list. Her casuals had denims teamed with sexy lace tops styled with a purse & bangles while bold gowns & sarees flattered her figure on the red carpet.


Hrithik Roshan

Hrithik

Even though we did not have many red carpet appearances but Hrithik still wooed us as he walked at Marrakech Film Festival in black Tuxedo & sleek hairstyle alongside wife Suzzane. He put in that extra effort to look good be in his clothes, his hair or his clean shaven face. That is why Hrithik makes it to IFP’s list of ‘Best Dressed’.

Sridevi

Sridevi 4

She came back and stunned us yet again just to make us realize how much we missed the actor ‘Sridevi’. Her acting skills are uncomparable but it was her dressing style which made me smile every single time she walked the red carpet. Her saree choices from Manish Malhotra & Sabyasachi were beautiful so were her western attires. She complimented each look with alluring jewellery, a clutch & hairstyle which completed her look and made her look ever ¬†more elegant.

 

Kareena Kapoor

Kareena

The year 2012 was indeed a blessing for Kareena Kapoor on both personal & professional front. But this year also saw her explore new wardrobe choices. The gal who was mostly seen in Manish Malhotra outfits on the red carpet, made way for designers gowns, dresses & jumpsuits…………something which we have been longing to see Kareena in. Her make-up is always flawless, her hair are superbly styled, her nails well-manicured and her outfits are to die for. Do we need to give anymore reasons as to why Kareena Kapoor makes it to this list?

 

 

Mini Mathur

Mini

Mini Mathur might not be the Bollywood’s leading ladies but she sure stands out whenever seen at any red carpet event…………the reason : her choice of silk sarees which she wore with sheer elegance. On someone else the saree would have fallen flat, but on Mini the sarees looked fabulous especially when she paired them with stone jewellery & a batua bag.

 

Arjun Rampal

Arjun

Bandhgala paired with Jodhpuri pants on the red carpet of Cannes Film Festival seems like a tricky choice, but our very own Arjun Rampal carried off effortlessly. Arjun is one of the few actors who rocks the red carpet in any thing that he wears plus he has evolved in his looks as he has ages gracefully. Arjun & his wife Meher made us red carpet proud at this year’s Cannes when they both walked in wearing a Rohit Bal & Tarun Tahiliani outfits. Neat, sophisticated and ever evolving…………that’s what makes Arjun stand out in our list.

Karisma Kapoor

Karisma2

Polished, sophisticated, sexy, elegant, all combined in one is how I describe Karisma Kapoor’s style. Even though these days she is seen wearing black or pastels, she manages to grab eyeballs with her subtle style. ¬†This mother of two has groomed her younger sister Kareena to stardom and has maintained herself as a ‘Diva’. Karisma makes it to this list too along with Kareena – both sisters are the offical muse of the eminent designer Manish Malhotra.

Kalki Koechlin

Kalki3

Kalki is the surprise entrant on the red carpet who started off looking like a ‘girl next door’ but has morphed herself to a ‘celebrity’ with amazing style sense. Why she makes it to IFP’s list is because of her quirky, unusal options which she wears to the red carpet. She is refreshingly different from the rest of the celebrities and stands on her own. A celebrity who can wear a hairband with an Indian outfit & still manage to walk off with an ease…………..which is what Kalki did at this year’s Cannes.

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.

Pri2

 

Pri3

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. ūüôā

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. ūüôā

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. ūüôā ūüôā

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. ūüė¶

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.

Top 10 Looks of Sridevi

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on September 26, 2012

Sridevi has got us drooling over her style these days hence ‘Indian Fashion Police’ thought of listing few of her looks ¬†on the red carpet and page 3 events in the past one year¬†which have wowed us. IFP counts the 10 best looks of Sridevi where Look no. 1 would be our favourite till date.

Look No. 10

¬†Red hot gown at IIFA 2011. Red outfit combined with a diamond necklace and a silver clutch gets IFP’s vote. Our guess for this fabulous gown would be ‘Donna Karan’.

Look No. 9

 In a strapless Elie Saab printed gown at Apsara Awards 2012. Sridevi lets the gown do all the talking while keeping the accessories to the minimum.

Look No. 8

In Zara outfit at the¬†unveiling of¬†¬†Society Interiors Issue. The colour, the fit and the styling made her look ‘oh-so-alluring’

Look No. 7

In grey ‘Herve Leger’ at Filmfare Awards 2012. ‘Divalicious’ ¬†is how IFP defines this look.

Look No. 6

Sridevi in a beautiful saree in pastel color at launch of Meheka Mirpuri’s collection. On someone else that saree would have not looked so good but Sridevi makes this outfit work ¬†in a sexy way.

Look No. 5

In a ‘Manish Malhotra’ saree at NDTV Greenathon 2012. A lighter shade of blue with yellow floral¬†detailing is graceful all the way.

Look No. 4

In a pink Anarkali by ‘Manish Malhotra’ at ‘Jhalak Dikhla Jaa’. This outfit is thankfully not over the top. It has the right amount of glitter and the pink colour is so fabulous.

Look No. 3

In Sabyasachi at Delhi Couture Week 2012. Elegance personified on the runway is how IFP can describe this look.

Look No. 2

In ‘Manish Malhotra’ at IIFA 2012. This outfit got us on the colour and the sex appeal of this design.

Look No. 1

In Sabyasachi at ‘Toronto International Film Festival’. This dual tone saree makes us hail this lady who is not only beautiful but extremely talented as well.

Esha Deol – Bharat Takhtani Reception

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on July 1, 2012

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.

Celebrities who look their best in Saree

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on June 6, 2012

A Saree is something not all women can carry off……… as it requires a lot of attention to details when i come to selecting the saree material, type of drape and how to wear it.¬† Only few women in the fashion scene have done justice to a Saree. This is perhaps one of IFP’s most read articles, so had to add a couple of names more and present the write-up in a new look.

Vidya Balan

Vidya Balan is the epitome of old time charm when dressed in a saree. The only designer who does justice to her looks is Sabhyasachi Mukherjee whose designs are not over the edge yet feminity is at it’s classic best. In the initial days Vidya Balan did mess up a lot with her looks………………remember the hideous Orange Salwar Kameez she wore while hosting Filmfare Awards……………long are those days gone and I am glad that the lady knows what looks good on her. She does make heads turn at red carpet events with her beautifully crafted sarees. Loved her look in movies like ‘Bhool Bholaiya’ & ‘Paa’¬†but off-screen she is the one responsible to bring the 3/4th sleeve blouses and handloom sarees back in fashion. In a saree, Vidya could do no wrong and is today regarded as one of India’s Best Dressed.

Shilpa Shetty

No one on the Indian Fashion Scene could have looked so hot and sexy in a Saree as Shilpa¬†Shetty¬†did. She has simply re-defined the¬†trend of wearing a ‘Saree’.¬†Thanks to her Designer Tarun¬†Tahiliani, Shilpa¬†has never looked better. The world actually stopped to take a look at her as she walked down the red carpet looking dazzling in a Saree during Big Brother in UK. We loved her red and green saree with ethnic Kundan¬†and Emerald jewellery. I¬†love Shilpa¬†for her originality and the fact that¬†she has been a trend setter all along.¬†She has styled her sarees with halter and off-shoulder blouses for red carpet events.¬† She has graced the ramp as shop stopper for Tarun¬†Tahiliani’s collection for the consecutive 3 years.

 

  

 

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan

I still remember Aishwarya¬†as an upcoming model in advertisement of¬†‘Garden’ Sarees. No one before her and after her could do justice to the Saree brand. Since then she has graced numerous¬†fashion shows and magazine covers.¬† I simply love her colour selection¬†in pastels and pinks. From Traditional South Indian Kanjeevarams¬†to Crepes to Chiffons¬†to Silks give her any type Saree to wear and she carries it off with utter ease. Women just drooled¬†over her two toned and heavily embroidered Sarees which she wore in ‘Devdas’. Aishwarys¬†gives credit to her designer Neeta¬†Lulla¬†for giving her that look as she portrayed the role of ‘Paro’. In recent times, Aishwarya has worn Sabyasachi and Abu Jani- Sandeep Kholsa sarees to red carpet events.

 

 

Kajol


Her smile simply lights up any room that she enters but when she combines it with a beautiful saree the end result¬†is ‘AWESOME’.¬† Manish¬†Malhotra¬†transformed her into a Style diva when he designed for her in ‘Kuch¬†Kuch¬†hota¬†hai’ . We have seen her in designer Salwar¬†Kameez¬†but I feel she looks stunning in a Saree. The best part about her choice is that she has never worn anything which is has too much of detail work. ¬†She keeps the Jewellery to the minimum¬†emphasizing on earrings only. People love the fact that¬†she is always herself in any silhouette and does not have to pretend that she is a¬†celebrity. No wonder how style comes easily to Kajol.

Sridevi

Sridevi¬†has been an example for all Designers in India for the way she carries herself in a Saree. She oozes grace and¬†elegance for which I call her ‘Timeless Beauty’.¬† As a child¬†I remember seeing her in¬†sizzling blue saree in Mr. India or in¬†pastel colour sarees in ‘Chandni’. Even when she is not in her on-screen¬†glamorous¬†avatar I love her simple look in a Kanjeevaram¬†Saree.¬† These days Sridevi¬†has started experimenting with western wear¬† but i¬†still feel she should wear more of Indian Outfits as it suits her tall frame.¬†Designers like Queenie Dhodhy, Manish¬†Malhotra¬†and Neeta¬†Lulla design their creations for her and she has graced many fashion week shows as a Show stopper.


Sonia Gandhi

Sonia Gandhi wears a crisp Khadi¬†and silk sarees with such a refinement I have ever seen. She might be of Italian origin but Indian women can learn a thing or two about how to carry a saree¬†in whatever situation you might be in.¬†I love how she combines her saree with a winter coat and uses her saree pallu¬†as a scarf around the collar making it¬†quite a style statement. Even as she is maintaining her style she never loses her dignity and focus that she belongs to the most affluent ‘Gandhi’ family.¬†While other celebrities go in for glamorous looks in saree¬†Sonia has always opted for simple clean look making¬†a unique¬†style statement. Sonia Gandhi has made a mark for herself in the Indian Politics and was third¬†in the Forbes¬†‘Most powerful woman in the world’¬† list.

Hema Malini

This ‘Dream Girl’ has been on the Bollywood scene for more than 40 years but she seems to grow more elegant with the passing years. She might be above 60¬†years but she can give today’s young actress a run for their money with her style. She was the reigning queen of Bollywood in the 60s and 70s. She made a comeback in bollywood¬†again after a long break of more than 10 years.People loved her look created by Neeta¬†Lulla¬†in recent movies like ‘Baghban’ and ‘Baabul’. She played her age in the movie and has redefined the image of a ‘screen mother’ in Bollywood cinema. A trained Odissi¬†dancer Hema¬†Malini¬†still performs on stage along with her two daughters. The fact I love about her is that she dresses up according to her age and never once worn anything revealing or shabby.¬† Give her a Saree made out of any¬†fabric and she¬†carries it magnificently. She is the ‘Original Diva’ which the Indian audience love, still remember and cannot get enough of.¬† I have seen her personally several times and asked for her autograph and was always awestruck by her beauty.¬†If I were to ever age, I would love to be as dignified and graceful as Hema¬†Malini.

Kirron Kher

Kirron¬†Kher¬†who is a very versatile actress is well-known¬†in the Indian Social circle for her Saree Collection. She has said in one of her interviews¬†“I love to wear only woven handloom¬†silk and cotton sarees. While I buy my tusshars¬†from the Weaver’s Studio in Kolkata¬†and tangails¬†from Kanishka, I buy silks and Kanjeevarams¬†from L’Affaire¬†in Delhi, India as the collections are larger, more beautiful and embroidered. In Chennai, I pick up my Kanjeevarams¬†from Usha¬†Ranganathan¬†and from Sundari¬†Silks owned by Rajaram¬†who has good taste.” No wonder she gets that amazing¬†look by going out-of-the-way¬†to find the perfect Saree. I like the way Kirron¬†is at ease when she is wearing a Saree and the Potli/Batua¬†bags she wears matching with her Saree. She says that she has inherited her taste in Sarees and jewellery from her¬†mother Late Diljit¬†Thakar¬†Singh. Well I must give the credit to her mother, for even at this age Kirron¬†Kher rules the Saree collection among Indian Celebrities.

Rekha

Whenever I think of the beautiful ‘Kanjeevaram’, Rekha is the only celebrity that comes to my mind. This silk silhouette is carried with utmost grace by Rekha since I am seeing her on the red carpet. She adorns herself with classic, traditional jewellery along with beautiful clutch bags on a Kanjeevaram saree. It would be a fashionista’s dream come true if they ever get to go inside her wardrobe and check out her amazing saree collection………….that is one think I would give my tooth and nail for. One of our readers reminded us that Rekha should be included in this list and IFP couldn’t agree anymore.

Celebrities at Lakme Fashion Week

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on August 23, 2011

Celebrities and fashion fraternity have always been like ‘Ying¬†& Yang’……..one is incomplete without the other. Celebs have graced the runway every season since the inception of Fashion week, but what I find more interesting is to see them off the ramp and on the red carpet. That is exactly when my devil’s horn come out and¬†mind spins into action mode. Let’s catch up on what the celebrities wore for the big event:

One got to see Karisma¬†Kapoor on 2 days at LFW¬†where she had come in to cheer for her neice¬†and sister Kareena. Seen wearing a white ruffle collar top with blue denims¬†and a b/w bag…….no one can do the basic white shirt better than Karisma. As I always say, Karisma is all about ‘Class’ and she reflect a good one in the above outfit…….

Though her look on the LFW¬†-Finale¬†Day could have been better since the top was more of a dress combined with skinny jeans………..I missed the glamour factor in this outfit. This one appears more of what one can expect Karisma to wear on a casual day……….for a Fashion Week, I wished she would have put on a more alluring attire to woo people.

Twinkle Khanna also attended the LFW¬†where she was seen in a black & white attire……….nothing much to ponder over but I do like the ‘Scorpio’ brooch that she had accessoried her top with. Rest was too casual for a Fashion Week………ladies please dress up a bit more fashionable.

Neil Nitin Mukesh¬†who came in dressed in a suit designed by Designer¬†‘Narendra Kumar’ looked undoubtedly handsome. The suit is all shimmer but other things are kept matt which works well here……..I am never in favour of men sporting a stubble on the red carpet, but in Neil’s case I make an exception.

Queenie Dhody¬†had daughter Tiara Dhody¬†for company at the recent LFW………..now here is the truth, they both look like they are best buddies dressed in similar style, unfortunately the hemline¬†of Queenie is shorter than her daughters, talk about age-appropriate dressing…………..I am literally bored of seeing Queenie do the short dresses at every red carpet event………..need a change.

And I at last get my wish of seeing Ms. Dhody in pants coupled with a ruffle top and a ‘Hermes’ belt to grab the attention to that slim waistline. Like it for sure………..hope to see Queenie in more of these in future.

Also seen at Sabyasachi’s¬†showcasing of his collection was Vidya¬†Balan. Vidya¬†is obviously wearing a ‘Sabyasachi’ creation. The peach blouse with a white saree reminds me of vintage fashion which a timeless beauty like her can carry off gracefully………though I am not a fan of her black potli bag……but that is just me.

Katrina Kaif¬†choose¬†a ‘Manish¬†Malhotra’ creation when it was time for her to attend the LFW. We have seen this same look at the Filmfare awards where more than half of the actresses were dressed in floor length anarkalis. Not a fan back then, not a fan now either.

The ever so ‘Hot’ Sridevi¬†confirms her star status every single time she steps on the red carpet……….despite the fact that she has not had a movie come out for more than a decade but she can certainly give new comers a run for their moolah. Sridevi¬†attended¬†Sabyasachi’s¬†show in a Sabyasachi saree………..’Divine’ is one word for this ‘Diva’.

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.
