We won’t give away the award winners since the event will be airing on Star Plus on the 31st but there’s no harm in taking a peek at the red carpet moments and learning who was wearing what at the Big Star Awards 2012 that marked the official Bollywood closing of the year. Held in Mumbai almost a week back, the awards were attended by some of Bollywood’s finest including Priyanka Chopra, Deepika Padukone, and Katrina Kaif among others. We were disappointed to see that some of our favourites style icons such as Anushka Sharma, Nargis Fakhri and even Malaika Arora were missing  from the show.

Priyanka Chopra in Ramona Narang

Evidently it appears that most of the young starlets opted for monochrome simple gowns with minimal embellishments if any, rather than traditional flowing Anarkalis. Priyanka Chopra who pulls off the soft formfitting silhouette best was stunning in a Ramona Narang peek-a-boo  halter gown. She is a clear Narang fan, having been spotted in her body con creations for promotional events several times in the past months. From the color to the alluring criss cross back everything fell into place like a puzzle with this number.

Deepika in Naeem Khan

Deepika Padukone who we always appreciate for keeping things interesting was certainly eye catching in a psychedelic optical one-shoulder by Naeem Khan. The blood red lips and high swept ponytail were the perfect accessories to her edgy style.

Katrina Kaif in Badgley Mischka

Katrina Kaif on the other hand who already bores us on screen appeared equally banal in a shimmering gold Badgley Mischka strapless gown. Although the fabric was beautiful, the cut and the way it was styled felt rather flat. We prefer Maheen Karim’s duller gold version of the dress with the twisted front presented at FPW4.

Zarine Khan in Pria Kataria

Zarine Khan also went for an asymmetrical look with a navy dress by Pria Kataria that cloaked her full figure with a classy elegance. The worst dressed award if there was one would definitely go to Sania Mirza for her rather ill fitting silk dress by Nandita Mahatani. The lower half of the dress was its saving grace for the net embellished neck seemed dated. We would have preferred a more simple cut neckline. The color is such a lovely shade on Sania it’s a shame. Speaking of Sania, the sports couple are scheduled to take part in the reality Indian Dancing Contest, Nach Baliye by the end of the month. Do not miss it!

Kareena Kapoor in Shahab Durazi

Kareena struck a power chord with a smoking pant suit by Shahab Durazi and we absolutely loved it. She is always a trend setter but never in an over bearing way and this is the perfect example. Who gets your vote for best and worst dressed?
