Commonly referred to as the Oscars of Bollywood, the day one of the gala event (IIFA) witnessed the coming together of eminent Bollywood stars including Alia Bhatt, Disha Patani, Varun Dhawan, Shahid Kapoor, Salman Khan and many more. With fashion pundits already having an eye on these stars, IIFA 2017 serves as a supreme opportunity for our beloved actors to bring their number one game to the fore. Eager much? Don’t be, as without further ado, we tell you what your favourite celeb wore at the event. (Pictures courtesy: Yogen Shah)
Well, we all know how Sallu is obsessed with the colour black and he really looked handsome AF in that black ensemble of his. Opting for a well-fitted vertical striped suit teamed with a black shirt, blue printed pocket square and shoes, Salman looked really very stylish. Finally, sporting a sleek moustache and beard, Salman stunned us. Verdict-Any girl would bend down on her knees, if a dapper guy like Salman proposed her. And so, for Salman's amazing style outing, we give him a fashion score of 4.5/5!
The 'Jagga Jasoos' star opted for a tangerine coloured cold-shoulder dress by Rebecca Vallance and looked really good. With her hair left loose in soft waves, those nude strappy stilettos, a hint of minimal makeup and finally those delicately lined eyes rounded off her look. Verdict- We have already told you how non-impressive Katrina was during her 'Jagga Jasoos' promotions with regards to her sartorial choices. But, this time at IIFA's press meet she kept it simple and it totally worked for her. And so for her safe fashion play, we give Katrina a fashion score of 2.5/5!
The always charming actress Alia Bhatt turned up at the event wearing a Resort 2018 Sachin And Babi striped dress. The monochrome strapless dress with its striped full-skirt looked pretty on the actress. With a minimal makeup of wispy eyebrows, pink lips, delicately lined eyes and hair left loose in soft waves, Alia rocked the simple yet chic look. Verdict-We really can't get it, how this young babe filled with cuteness always is best with regards to her style. Kudos to her stylist Ami Patel and Sanjay Kumar Dauhaliya, who made her look this gorgeous at the event. And so, we give Alia a fashion score of 4/5!
Styled by Anisha Jain, the 'Udta Punjab' star turned up the debonair quotient with his neo-Indian avatar opting for an all black look (kurta, pants and shoes). With his beard and moustache game next to perfect, Shahid surely made many heads turn with his simple and sleek look. Verdict- BLACK, this colour can never go wrong. But, you also need that charisma to look HOT in the most loved colour, and Shahid surely has it. From his beard to his attitude all was in sync, and so, we give Shahid a fashion score of 4/5!
Wearing a striking blue body-flattering mermaid patterned dress by Amit Aggarwal for the press event, Kriti has impressed us. She pulled back her hair into a sleek ponytail with a deep middle partition and wore a pair of tassel earrings which matched with her outfit quite well. Verdict- Yes, as we always emphasise that experimenting with looks is kind-of a key to stay in the limelight and Kriti did a great job with it. We haven't seen her donning something like this before and she really looked beautiful in that dress. And so, we give Kriti an impressive fashion score of 3/5!
Sushant Singh Rajput
Opting for a casual look with a printed tee paired with black pants, Sushant looked okay-ish. But surely the main highlight of his attire was his black jacket layered over his T-shirt and those brown shoes. Verdict- Seems like he is still not paid for his film 'Raabta', as Sushant's look for IIFA press meet was not at all great. Lukewarm is the word! And so, we give Sushant a fashion score of 2/5!
Styled by Tanya Ghavri, Disha Patani bowled us over with a bright yellow coloured customised gown from Swapnil Shinde featuring a thigh-high slit, a halter neckline and a keyhole plunge. She teamed her look up with metallic lace-up stilettos, dangling earrings, minimal makeup, nude lips, dark eyes and a side-parted chic hairstyle. Wow! Verdict- From her sizzling photoshoots to nailing it in style at the IIFA festivities, Disha Patani is seriously unstoppable. For her bright and colourful stint at the event, we give Disha a fashion score of 4/5!
Opting a mint lapelled shirt paired with a grey washed chinos from Scotch & Scoda, Varun Dhawan was dressed poorly at the event. Only thing which we found cool was his monk straps from Christian Louboutin. Verdict-Seems like Varun Dhawan's stylist, Kunal Rawal, could not make his client look dapper at the event. While we liked the chino pants, we think the shirt was not at all what Varun was able to carry off. BAD! And so, we give Varun Dhawan and his sylist a low fashion score of 1.5/5. Better luck next time!
