Bollywood’s heroines fail on the red carpet

What went wrong?

You Wore WHAT!?

The ladies of Bollywood brought bling and baubles to the Filmfare red carpet. Unfortunately, the showing was less than impressive.

Deepika Padukone was the lady in red in Ralph and Russo. She looks statuesque but so severe. The best part of the gown is the cowl neck at the back and the train.

By now if you see something white, wispy and on Sonam Kapoor, you know it’s an Anamika Khanna. This look seems perfect for the shaadi season and not for awards season. Props for the neckpiece, though.

PS: She wore a very similar look by Anamika to last year’s Filmfare Awards.

One of the reasons Parineeti Chopra worked on getting a fitter body was that she could wear more glamorous clothes. With this ensemble, I don’t think she’s achieving that. There’s just no wow factor.

Kriti Sanon’s Nikhil Thampi is lovely. It’s relaxed and chill but still completely appropriate for the red carpet. Now, only if she had her hair in a chic updo.

Athiya Shetty’s Monisha Jaising gown seems pretty basic. A little too basic for a red carpet event. There’s no drama happening here. Oh, but that piece of jewellery she’s got on her hand is totally lust-worthy.

Deepika might have had some serious issues with Ileana D'Cruz because the latter’s in a Nachiket Barve that’s pretty similar to her Ralph and Russo.

Aditi Rao Hydari wore a mint green Gauri and Nainika. It fits really well but the styling is where it all falters. She needed some colour – maybe a bright lip or a ruby necklace. And a better hairstyle, of course.

Neha Dhupia is also wearing a very similar Gauri and Nainika. Who do you think wore it better – Aditi or Neha? I’m going to say Neha.

Bhumi Pednekar confused the red carpet event for a sangeet ceremony.

Akshara Haasan’s Mayyur Girotra is actually pretty nice but it’s her hair that’s ruining it all. It’s practically covering her face.

Richa Chadda’s gown is gorgeous. And by gorgeous I mean GORGEOUS! But it’s her make-up where it all starts going downhill.

No, no. No! Sunny Leone is perpetrating her own cliché in this black lace gown.

Huma Qureshi looks stunning and she knows it. She’s working her Mayyur Girotra like nobody’s business.

So, this is what the women wore on the red carpet. Hopefully, the guys fared better. We have a piece on that coming up soon.
