As some of you may know, I’m not a follower of the Bollywood film scene however, I am familiar with the classic 90’s and 00’s Bollywood stars. And when l heard International India Film Awards (IIFA) were here l was looking forward to the green carpet part of the event. A perfect chance to check out the Indian actresses looking gorgeous and how the Asian’s rock the green/red carpet with their fashion. As a result, l wanted to share this Asian fashion blog with the best dressed at International India Film Awards (IIFA) 2014.
The Indian stars were out for International India Film Awards and didn’t they look stunning?
It’s great to see western fashion designers dresses on the green carpet by a Indian actress e.g. Kareena Kapoor Khan (image 1) was wearing Giorgio Armani. Kareena was glowing in black, white and coral make-up. A saree style jewelled blouse gives it that Asian theme and on trend velvet skirt finishes it off nicely giving it that elegant completed look.
Deepika Padukone (image 2) wore a Sabyasachi golden gown. I can’t help but think, her beautiful lengha is similar to a bridal suit we would wear here in Britain when getting married or during Walima at a Muslim wedding. Deepika always looks flawless and this time she had her classic look - hair sweeped black but with black current lip stick gives it a lovely finish. Even though l wouldn’t wear black current with the gold gown, it does look wonderful for a film award event!
Bipasha Basu (image 3) was wearing Sonaakshi Raj, the saree design is bang on trend this season as seen in Lakme Fashion Week blog. The saree extinguished her lovely body shape and hips. The netted/embroided blouse was one of favourites at Lakme FW and is once again definitely one of my favs on the green carpet.
Other favourites included the beautiful Aditi Rao Hydari (image 4) in one of my favourite Indian designer Payal Singhal.
Unlike western red carpet events, l can’t say any actress at IIFW wasn't looking as stunning. Each actress had her own style, some played it sophisticated yet subtle e.g. Vaani Kapoor in Nikhil Thampi (image 5) who still looked stunning and others went all out.
