Sabyasachi Mukherjee once said that the costumes should never overpower the character and actor. It should meld in so seamlessly that you should hardly notice the clothes. And if the actors are not present, the clothes should be able to tell that narrative within a scene. While many bollywood movies do employ designers, sometimes it is important to have the character take centrestage than the designer. There were some gems in 2015 that did just that.

Tis the award season is upon us in both the worlds, Hollywood as well as Bollywood. Screen Awards that were held saw a slew of stars descend and grace the red carpet. Many did not succeed, and no fucking brilliant moments like Kalki and Huma last year, but few who did, definitely hit it out the ball park.
Tabu is probably one of those actresses who does not realize how pretty she is. While at many occasions we have seen the tall lass go overboard, she looked smashingly hot in this Abu Jaani and Sandeep Khosla Saree. Red on red carpet always leaves me a bit meh but Tabu who never follows rules, kicks up a storm in this fiery sari. With a chevron blouse, loose hair and understated makeup she lets the sari take the centre stage giving the younger fashionistas a lesson in how is sexy done without overdoing it. Effortlessly HOT.
Marcel waves, check. Smoky eyes, check. Understated glamour. Double Check. Bringing her A game to the night, the actress in a blush Gauri and Nainika structured gown hit quite a few notes with her understated and restrained outing. Priyanka always keeps us guessing what she is going to sport next and it’s always the unexpected. The elegant outing was complete with a hairdo that complimented the gown to a T with bang on makeup. The best actress winner, wrapped things with a deep ruby ring to accent the gown just enough.
Going the Jessica Chastain way, the Kapoor lad picked up a bronze suit for the night looking pretty dapper in his suit. While his choice of color was unusal, so was the spin on the usual tux with a blue plaid deep neck vest peeking through just to offset the whole look and carry it off in a rather semi-casual vibe. The triple trophy winner of the night could not be styled better in his now fun do and a stubble to boot.
The leggy lass defines fierce and this time she did not disappoint in a shimmering Rohit Gandhi and Rahul Khanna number looking smoking. A straighter silhouhette with a dangerous thigh high slit, the woman nails the footwear and hair, what even the red carpet fashionistas stumble upon. The dusky stunner kept it simple and that is where she scored. She knows what looks good on her body type (basically everything) and rocks the hell out of it. While I do wish for a bit deeper lip color (not dark), but just a minor gripe
After a recent misstep, Deepika was back and what better way than striking back via a traditional route. Opting for a JADE sari, Ms. Padukone cut a pretty picture on the red carpet. Her look was pretty complete with the bindi and gold jhumkis and rounded off with a Bottega Veneta knot clutch that perfectly offset the black sari. A good call to tie up her hair to show off her earrings, Ms Padukone pulls off a very difficult sari, pretty masterfully.
