British Fashion Awards 2015 – Red Carpet

Posted on Updated on

bfa_2010

For a fashion awards night it was ironic as to how many usually-well-turned-up-on-red-carpet people, had quite the opposite effect. Many turned heads on the red carpet and not for the right reasons failing to impress anyone that saw them, and here I thought Black was the most safest color. From capes on dresses to odd ( and not the good kind) dresses and gowns it was pretty much a catastrophe. While the British Fashion Awards 2015 in partnership with Swarovski did miss last year’s sass, however not everyone was a lost cause and some of the red carpet appearances did kick some serious ass!! My highlight of the night:  Jonathan Anderson winning both Menswear and Womenswear designer for 2015.

Filmfare 2015 – Red Carpet

Posted on Updated on

The possible Oscars of Indian Film Industry, Filmfare saw many stars descend and take the red carpet by storm. Many of the Bollywood actors stepped up their A game, for the red carpet.

 

ILEANA D’ CRUZ
In Nikhil Thampi seperates with a metallic belt and Dior earrings, Ileana knocked it out the ball park. The one not to go the gown route, Ileana’s suit featured a dramatic cape that drew all attention. With a plunging neckline and impeccably tailored pants that fell just to the right length, Ileana look was just perfectly balanced. With a side pony tail and smoky eyes, she looked every inch fierce styled to perfection. Pointy heels rounded off her looks.

 

SUNNY LEONE
The ‘Baby Doll’ with a sheer and lace detailed gown that fit her like a glove, looked one of the better ones at night. The Mayyur Girotra structured gown with the flared detail was perfect for the starlet. It hugged her in all the right places flaunting her curves… if you got it, might as well flaunt it. The sheer details between the boat and the sweet heart neck line was just enough detail. Finishing off her look with a side bun and sun kissed makeup, it was a safe but very effective look on the red carpet.

 

TABU
The actress of the moment, the DIVA brought her A game on for the night with the color of the night, Black. However she stood out tall, like her performances, apart from anyone else. Such long sequined gowns tend to be tricky but Tabu works the hell outta that Vizyon gown looking every bit the star she is. The actress sparkled (literally) and was glam on the red carpet. With side swept hair and the dark vampy lips, this award winner for the night gave the black lady of the night (the filmfare award is black) some serious competition. She definitely did not disappoint. A minor gripe though was that I did wish the gown to be much more structured.

 

SONAM KAPOOR
The Fashionista Sonam was almost bound to be on this list. The red carpet veteran gave us the perfect ethnic red carpet look without going the traditional long kurta-maxi route. Sporting Anamika Khanna seperates in a blush nude hue, Ms. Kapoor brought in the dainty look on the red carpet. The side tied skirt was the perfect length so as to give that sheer dramatic cape enough room and limelight to shine. The milkmaid braids, which was a good idea to show off the details, complimented the ensemble perfectly. She paired it up with jewelry by her motherr Sunita Kapoor.. just wished she could have stopped at two necklaces. Needless to say she looked pretty

 

SONALI BENDRE
Sonali’s orange outing on the red carpet pretty much shocked the daylights outta many people. The actress’s unusual choice of color made for an unpredictable outing as well as how it was styled perfectly that one could not flaw anything with a color that hard to pull off. The slick back hair, the smoky eyes her makeup was on-point edgy and dramatic. She paired up her Saloni gown with an Isharya cuff and a Kotur geometric clutch looking every bit statuesque on the red carpet. Good Job!

 

NEHA DHUPIA
Ah! another one who hardly looks bad in anything. The thing about Neha Dhupia is that she knows she has a broader frame but her sartorial choices are so brilliant and perfect because she makes them work for her body type. The result! well she looks amazing in almost every red carpet outing that she has and hardly ever has a misstep. The Alpana and Neeraj black and electric blue gown with a dramatic bow detail was no exception. The gown looked amazing and so did she with her styling complimenting it to a T. Deciding to pull up her hair and smoky eyes was perfect accompaniment for the gown that was finished just about with a Bottega Veneta clutch in tow.

 

THE MEN

 

SHAHID KAPOOR
Looking every bit dapper, the best actor winner of the night lead the pack of men. In a brilliantly fitted tuxedo by Kunal Rawal, Shahid sported a white waistcoat, bow tie, white shirt and a black suit. With the perfect facial fuzz and a perfect quiff of hair, Shahid cut a winning picture (all puns intended) on the red carpet.

 

FAWAD KHAN
Making all the ladies swoon, Fawad Khan looked every inch contemporary royal he played in the movie. The best debut winner was clad in a Dior Homme suit with pinstriped waistcoat, Armani shirt, Louis Philippe tie, Akshata Bhojania pocket square, Dolce & Gabbana patent lace-ups and Tag Heuer gold and steel watch, he was dapper extraordinaire. With everything slim and tailored to perfection, this is exactly what you want to see a dashing leading man to be wearing.

 

ARJUN KAPOOR
In an Ashish Soni tux, Arjun Kapoor turned up in an interesting emerald green jacket on the red carpet. An unusual outing and a look, he picked up the perfect trick of going monochrome to let the jacket take the spotlight on the red carpet. While the young actor looked good, now all he needs to do is master the art of getting the perfect posture on the red carpet.

 

TAHIR RAJ BHASIN
The meanie of the year, Tahir Raj Bhasin, looked dapper in a black suit on the red carpet. The Best Supporting actor nominee played it up perfectly with a black and white suit adding in just a hint of color via a pocket square. To his credit, he made a minimal statement without the need to go all out to make a statement and cut a polished picture.

 

RANDEEP HOODA
In a perfect dinner tux complete with a bow tie and cummerbund (the only one to do it), Randeep Hooda, turned up an opposite picture of his Mahabeer avatar. The Highway actor cut up a polished image on the red carpet.
