We’ll confess we’re besotted with bollywood! I mean think about it, after the numerous award giving functions, and just when we thought we were quite done celebrating the films of last year, i.e. 2012, we had yet another honor bestowing night, the IIFA 2013. But don’t get us wrong because we’re not complaining one bit. Just like the rest of them, we saw this one too with equivalent zeal and excitement. But right now, we’re here for a different purpose- we’re going to celebrate the celebrities that turned out amazingly dressed to the award night, grabbed all the limelight, and wouldn’t let the shutterbugs take a break! Since dressing up has always been an important part (you know how the fashion police get after you otherwise), and the red carpet is a gala event itself, we are here to pick our own favorites!
So let’s see who looked like a million bucks at the IIFA, 2013-
1. Deepika Padukone
Hands down, Padukone is the hottest thing in the industry right now! She wore a coral colored Naeem Khan gown, and looked quite a stunner! The wrap front gown was done in metallic beads, and that red pout and diamond danglers made her look beautifully bright!
2. Anushka Sharma
While Anushka did not grab as much attention as Deepika, we loved her Roberto Cavalli gown. It was a welcome break from her pantsuit avatar at TOIFA, and she’d left her hair open like she usually does. The off-white, floor sweeping gown looked quite good on her.
3. Madhuri Dixit Nene
Just like wine, Madhuri is getting better with age. She put on a net sari from Jade (a label by Karishma and Monica, with a beautifully carved blouse and stunning earrings! Mrs. Nene looked every bit gorgeous! Kudos!
4. Jacqueline Fernandez
The former Miss Sri Lanka wore a strapless Roberto Cavalli golden gown. The mermaid hem was another highlight!
5. Vidya Balan
Let’s not get into the habit of downplaying Vidya Balan at every red (in this case green) carpet. Mrs. SRK did not pick a Sabyasachi sari this time around, and instead opted for a creation by Anand Kabra. The black sari complimented her very well.
6. Shriya Saran
This beauty, from South India, looked super pretty in a vibrant Manish Malhotra sari. We loved the play of colors and her minimal jewelry. Quite a beauty here!
7. Dia Mirza
This doll looking girl chose an Ayesha Depala floor-length-gown. Though we wish she’d done her hair some other way!
8. Parineeti Chopra
This budding talent looked super chic in a Nikhil Thampi gown. The thigh high slit reminded us of Angelina Jolie!
The boys were totally dapper too! Our pick of the hottest men at IIFA 2013-
1. Shah Rukh Khan
They don’t call him the King of Bollywood just like that! SRK looked incredible in Christian Louboutin Henri Flat Rouge! And oh, his hair! Perfectly gelled and perfectly styled! *butterflies*
2. Shahid Kapoor
Shahid Kapoor looked very impressive. His suit was super-fitted too!
3. Sushant Singh Rajput
The new kid on the block looked handsome in his black tuxedo! Way to go, Sushant!
