Vogue Beauty Awards 2012
Posted by Indian Fashion Police on August 3, 2012
Vogue India held the Vogue Beauty Awards yesterday in Mumbai where the Bollywood as well as Page 3 celebs walked the red carpet. IFP gets you a closer look at what these celebrities wore at this event………that’s really what we love to do ……….there were few hits and many misses on this red carpet, so let’s find out who looked good?
Ms. PAdukone has been in the news these days for the right reasons………I am talking about her new stylish avatar since the movie ‘Cocktail’ which has won her great reviews and loads of appreciation for her wardrobe choices in the movie. At Vogue Beauty Awards too Deepika came dressed in a Dolce & Gabbana outfit which had shimmer half below a black bodice. On someone else the outfit would have not worked, but Deepika managed to carry it off effortlessly with those wavy hair, cuffs and a black clutch to match. IFP likes her look for the evening and gives a thumbs up to Deepika.
Sisters Kajol and Tanisha also walked the red carpet in designer ensembles. Love to see Kajol all dressed up and looking beautiful to the hilt. The gown was by designer ‘Ayesha Depala’ which made Kajol look like a ‘Diva’……plus the hair, the clutch, the earrings and the nude peep toes all complimented her look well. As for sister Tanisha who opted for a ‘James Ferreira’ gown, I felt the fit of the bodice was not as desired and the voluminous wavy hair just took away all the attention. Out of the two, Kajol definitely gets IFP’s vote for looking so elegant.
Zarine Khan went the ‘jumpsuit’ way to look different at this event and boy she did work the style well on the red carpet. Seen here wearing a ‘Zara’ outfit, Zarine kept the look simple with a black clutch, belt and shoe for this event. IFP likes her look and the fact that she stood out on her own in a graceful manner.
Sonali Bendre in ‘Christian Dior’ spelt ‘Fabulous’ in every frame. The understated look of the gown worked well for this event………..IFP loves her hairdo while her look was completed with a black clutch and open toe pumps. Sonali added a cocktail ring and studs for some bling but thankfully she left the outfit to do all the talking.
Nargis Fakhri went the ‘Roberto Cavalli’ way for the beauty awards…….the tier dress unfortunately did not make an impression on the red carpet. The make-up and the hair did look good though…..wish Nargis would have opted for something demure than this.
Diana Penty looked gorgeous in a ‘Gucci’ one shoulder gown that had metal detailing on the shoulder and sexy shoes to match it. Diana radiated a ‘girl next door meets a sexy siren’ look on the red carpet…..pinned up hair gave a ‘sweet & simple’ look whereas the outfit, the shoe, and the other accessories were demure. IFP liked Diana’s look at this event.
Dia Mirza was spotted in a new hairdo which did make her look pretty but her look on the red carpet spelt disastor whether it was her dress or her shoes. None of these did any justice to Ms. Mirza who is usually dressed well at such events. IFP does understand that Dia wanted to have fun with her new look…..unfortunately the choice of footwear spoilt this entire look. With hair like that I wish Dia would have opted for a maxi dress or a jumpsuit…………..IFP gives a thumbs down to this look
Ileana D’Cruz who will make her Bollywood debut with ‘Barfi’ wore a printed ‘Roberto Cavalli’ gown which had lace details. Not a fan of this look….wish Ileana would have been more adventurous to opt for gown in one solid color rather than going floral. Sigh…..sometimes bad clothes happen to good looking people.
Farhan Akhtar had his wife Adhuna as his arm candy for the evening……..Farhan dressed like a perfect gentleman in a basic black suit to compliment Adhuna’s lokk in grey. Adhuna was her quirky self in this asymmetrical but I so want to change her shoes and give her matching pumps. But as a couple posing on the red carpet, IFP does like them for sure.
Simone Singh put on a blazer above a shimmer dress and was very successful at spoiling the look without much effort. Why could she not go without the blazer and just wear a dress underneath with an elaborate neck piece……….IFP loves the lady and feels she has loads of potential to look gorgeous on the red carpet, wonder why she opted for a blazer that had too long sleeves and did nothing for her look.
Mandira Bedi was demure in this sexy little black dress which had a cleavage cut-out. She combined this outfit with a hot pink clutch and silver shimmer sandals. IFP likes the dress but not the styling of this look. The clutch looked out of place while the ankle tie-up sandals did not blend in.
Poorna Jagannathan was seen in a ‘Bibhu Mohapatra’ gown looking every bit ‘statuesque’. This dreamy outfit combined with a metallic color clutch and stylish curly updo worked well on the red carpet. IFP likes this look on Poorna which is very different from her usual fun self.
Shenaz Treasurywala was seen in a ‘Pria Kataria Puri’ design which we had incidently seen her wear last year in New York as well. This halter dress required the hair to be pulled back and styled away from the face. While the trail of the dress was supposed to be let loose…………….now you know what messed things up on the red carpet. Shenaz please leave few things to the designer or the stylist instead of applying your own ideas.
Model Angela Jonsson was seen in a ‘Gaurav Gupta’ design which had sheer neckline. Not a fan of the outfit but Angela did make the look work with her styling. The hair, the accessories and the shoes did make her look good on the red carpet. On anyone else, the dress would have never made an impression.
Gul Panag was all shimmer in this one shoulder little black dress…..add in nude Mary Janes and an oversized clutch and you have a perfect recipe for red carpet disaster. Wish the puffed sleeve would magically disappear along with the clutch & the shoes……IFP would have styled it with strappy killer heels and an understated small clutch. Sigh….:-(
Monica Dogra kept the look simple in this ‘Rohit Gandhi-Rahul Khanna’ design but it left me asking one question……..Why is there no accessory in this look??? A silver clutch, a metallic cuff, chandelier earrings or an eye-catching neck-piece could have made the look more appealing. Just the gown and loose curls make the look feel like so ‘Blah’. IFP did not like the look just for the fact that the styling was not red carpet worthy.
Dipannita Sharma channelled the looks of 1940s in this shimmer jumpsuit and hairstyle. This is adventurous for the red carpet but the hairstyle still did not do any good to Dipannita’s looks. How I wish a simple pulled back ponytail would replace this hideous hairdo. IFP does not like the look one bit.
Shaheen Abbas was all smiles in silver one shoulder dress that had matching peep toes and an knuckle duster Alexander McQueen clutch. The look is sophisticated and thankfully not over the top. IFp likes Shaheen’s look on the red carpet.
