20th January 2013 was a star studded event at the 58th Filmfare awards held at YRF studios in Mumbai. As celebrities walked the red carpet, there were the best dressed and worst dressed moments at this year's Filmfare awards.
Black was certainly back at this fashionable awards night as the men chose to play it safe with this colour. Ranbir Kapoor, Ranveer Singh, Manoj Bajpayee, Arjun Kapoor, Sahil Sangha, Ali Zafar, Ramesh Sippy, Boney Kapoor, Anu Malik, Siddharth Malhotra, Marc Robinson, Bhushan Kumar and Siddharth Roy Kapur are a few names who made black look anything but boring.
Karan ohar chose to do it a bit differently as he looked smart in a black and white suit. Complimenting the look was Jackky Bhagnani who chose to move away from being fully dressed in black. Anurag Basu kept it simple and traditional with his Indian attire, dressed in a blue kurta, off white jacket and stole. He could have dressed better for this one considering it was important night for the Barfi! director.
Like the men, Parineeti too chose to play it safe in a simple, boring black sleeveless dress. Chairwoman of the Miss World Organization Julia Morley looked resplendent in high black trousers and sequin black jacket. She entered with Marc Robinson and the Miss World 2012 title winner. Ileana D'Cruz who won the best female debut award for Barfi! dressed to kill in a Cavalli. Priyanka Chopra carried her sea-blue Armani gown perfectly. Thumbs up for this one. Anushka Sharma who walked away with the best supporting female actress award for Jab Tak Hain Jaan looked anorexic in her long flowing yellow gown. Some weight might have added to the dress' charm.
Sridevi looked delicate in a long orange gown that seemed to compliment her figure. But who stole the show was Madhuri Dixit who arrived for the awards function with husband Sriram Nene. Madhuri looked absolutely ravishing in a black Alberto Makali gown.
Pooja Mishra who was also draped in a black dress was heard saying, "I love the black lady, so I am dressed in black". Alia Bhatt got it all right with a Manish Malhotra creation. Simple, traditional yet beautiful! Her Student of the Year co-star Varun Dhawan clearly stood out from the crowd as he looked dapper in an Archana Walvekar creation. The maroon coloured jacket added the spark to his personality.
Huma Qureshi wore a blue Varun Behl creation that somehow missed the mark. Vidya Balan aka Mrs. Siddharth Roy Kapur stuck to her favourite designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee with a cheqeured saree with just a hint of colour. Rekha was amongst the show stealers with her traditional south Indian saree. Age just does not catch up with her! Yami Gautam looked delectable in a Tarun Tahiliani designed lehenga corset dress.
The disasters of the night included Amrita Rao who seemed to suffer from a Victorian hangover in a white jacket and long flowing purple skirt!Femina Miss India World 2012 Vanya Mishra missed the point at this event with a simple one shoulder black dress and gold motifs. Her LBD failed to create the magic.
This year, only a few celebrities seemed to make it to the list of best dressed. Maybe next year will be more hopeful.
