Bollywood Blast: Filmfare 2013 Top 10 Red Carpet Moments


More Awards and many more swanky red carpets continue to entertain us! Let’s now move across the border and closer to home with the latest Annual Filmfare Awards. One wishes Pakistan would host even half as many as the numerous award shows celebrated in India. It is such a healthy platform and would certainly serve to push our own fashion industry further into the limelight. For the time being we can live vicariously through our neighbors. Usually we don’t actually rate the stars because it’s just too hard but we’ll give it a shot.

10. Coming in at number 10 we picked Alia Bhatt who is usually cute as a button in her short dresses but this time opted for a Manish Malhotra lehnga choli. Considering the same style with slight tweaks was worn by Sridevi at the CCL Red Carpet, we would have liked to see Bhatt in her usual younger style that we have come to love. Who would you say wore it better?

9. We chose Anuksha Sharma at no.9 for her Victoria Beckham cowl halter neck mango dress. While some may think the color odd we thought it was a lovely choice however as we’re not all that crazy about cowl necks to begin with, we felt she came in short on the whole. The makeup too was disappointing as the black flick eyeliner clashed completely with her dress. On the other hand she got it all right at  the Femina’s 10 most Beautiful Women event wearing a Nikhil Thampi shimmer gold dress that showed off her long legs.

8. Sonali Bendre played it relatively safe with a navy Manish Malhotra kali peshwas with a cut out back and berry pink drape.

7. Dia Mirza was charming in a Gaurav Gupta ivory embellished flowing suit with a fitted net bodice.

6. Madhuri Dixit deserves praise for pulling of a rather fitted all-over sequined gown by Alberto Makali. We appreciate that she didn’t turn to the go-to Manish Malhotra and she looks amazing.

5. Things get interesting with Sridevi’s choice of a sheer orange drop shoulder dress by Alberta Ferretti. She is certainly taking more risks since her super successful film English Vinglish and we are all for it.

4. Chitrangada Singh’s vibrant lime with bronze under tones sari by Anand Kabra was perhaps one of the few eastern ensembles that struck our fancy.

3. Our 2nd runner up is Shruti Hasan for her unconventional but inspiring choice of a calligraphic metal corset dress by Raakesh Agarwal.

2. This one was hard and very close but we’re going to go ahead and give Priyanka the runner up spot for her metallic teal Armani Privé (feature picture). We were so glad to see a different and yet super elegant color on the red carpet and that liquid fabric is glorious.

1. That leaves the no.1 spot for PC’s current best bud Deepika Padukone in sheer Prabal Gurung. What’s great about her is that she has a specific style and sticks to it. She knows her assets; that towering figure and athletic structure, and she wears outfits that enhance rather than obscure. Deepika is certainly loving the sheer double layer trend that she also hit at the Color Screen Awards wearing a Chantilly lace dress by Dolce & Gabbana.
