The GQ Men Of the Year Awards 2012 took place over the weekend in Mumbai and as expected, the stylish event was a starry affair. We of course had our eyes on the fashion to see which stars dressed to impress. You’ve already heard Meera’s thoughts on the men on the red carpet, now its the ladies who are under the spotlight!
Two of our fashion correspondents decide to dissect the fashion the ladies on the red carpet opted for on the night. Read on to find out if Meera and Prathna agree on who’s hot, and who was not!
Meera: Deepika Padukone looks ravishing in red in a Gaurav Gupta couture gown. Everything about her look from her hairstyle to her statement red lips works for the actress. I do like that she has opted for minimal, if no, jewellery that allows the gorgeous gown to do the talking.
Prathna: Deepika went all out with her look in her Gaurav Gupta gown. She pulls off the gown well and the makeup. The hair may be a ‘love it or hate it’ scenario. Personally I would have loved to see her in another do but you may think otherwise.
Verdict – Meera – Deepika Padukone is HOT!
Verdict – Prathna – Quite hot.
Prathna: Not quite sure what is happening with Ms Fakhri’s gown or hair. Her non-existent curves whilst an asset normally let her down for this outfit which seemed to just be dumped to the ground rather than falling elegantly to the floor. Add to that ‘that’ hair was just a disaster no matter what the outfit.
Verdict – Meera – Nargis Fakhri is HOT!
Verdict – Prathna – Not Hot
Prathna: One to always give us a striking appearance Jacqueline’s latest outing was no different. The Amit GT gown worked for her and how! I don’t mind the hair and makeup either but am curious to see how it would turn out with a bit of colour on her lips. Nevertheless she looks stunning
Verdict – Meera - Jacqueline Fernandez looks Hot but her gown is Not!
Verdict – Prathna – Hot!
Prathna: Another Gaurav Gupta sighting on the red carpet courtesy of Ms Koechlin but unlike Deepika’s look this one wasn’t quite as flawless. The colour just seemed to look too washed out on Kalki. The lack of any dark tones in her makeup is probably what is to be blamed for the washed out look.
Verdict – Meera - Kalki Koechlin is Not Hot!
Verdict – Prathna – Agreed!
Prathna: It was a very Audrey Hepburn inspired look for newcomer Ms Sharma on the night and she pulled it off quite well! Loving the gown, the hair and the minimal accessorising.
Verdict – Meera & Prathna - Evelyn Sharma is HOT!
Prathna: Nothing looks quite as sizzling on the red carpet than a woman comfortable in her skin and in her choices and Konkona is always that. Opting for a simple traditional saree over a fancy designer gown or saree was possibly the best way to stand out of the crowd and look amazing! Although it is her style mantra, its not one I want her to change until she wants to do so herself.
Verdict – Meera – Ignore the clutch bag and Konkona Sen Sharma is HOT!
Verdict – Prathna – Very Hot
Prathna: Very unsure of what exactly the Housefull 2 star was wearing but whatever it was, it definitely wasn’t working for Shazahn.
Verdict – Meera & Prathna – Shazahn Padamsee is Not Hot!
Prathna: Jiah perhaps couldn’t have opted for a more unflattering gown. Not sure if its just me but the shape of that dress just not working for Ms Khan’s figure.
Verdict – Meera – Jiah Khan’s gown is Not Hot!
Verdict – Prathna – Not Hot.
Prathna: Keeping it simple and classy as always was Dia Mirza in her favourite designer, Anita Dongre. Although the clutch was an eyesore, it wasn’t so bad of a choice to ruin the look completely because she did look darn flawless!
Verdict – Meera & Prathna – Dia Mirza is HOT!
Verdict – Meera – Kajol is Not Hot!
Verdict – Prathna – Yes so Not Hot!
Verdict – Meera – Vidya Balan is HOT!
Verdict – Prathna – Not Hot
Prathna: Aisha star Amrita Puri opted for a Komal Sood black lace corset and wrap gown which although a bold choice didn’t do much for the pretty lady. The heels and the makeup didn’t help either.
Verdict – Meera – Amrita Puri is HOT!
Verdict – Prathna – Amrita Puri is Not Hot.
Prathna: It’s a pity when a brave choice goes horribly wrong and it did so with Esha and her makeup up for the evening. If only she’d kept those tones far more lighter. What a shame because the dress isn’t all that bad.
Verdict – Meera – Esha Gupta is HOT!
Verdict – Prathna – Esha Gupta is Not Hot
Prathna: Not quite sure if Ms Keech could have saved that outfit. The Adarsh Gill gown just wasn’t the right choice. Surprisingly, neck up she did look great!
Verdict – Meera & Prathna agree – Hazel Keech is Not Hot!
Prathna: Not always a fan of the Chak De star’s fashion choices but she works that gown well! I love the semi-formal, semi-casual feel to it and the carefree styling helped in keeping the aura of the outfit in tact.
Verdict – Meera – Sagarika Ghatke looks nice but her outfit is Not Hot!
Verdict – Prathna – Sagarika Ghatke is Hot
Prathna: It was an AM:PM gown for Sarah on the red carpet. She wore it well and accessorised it brilliantly with her hair accessories.
Verdict – Meera – Sarah Jane Dias is HOT!
Verdict – Prathna – Sarah Jane Dias is Hot
Prathna: The gown that Ms Dandekar chose was quite overwhelming in itself add to that a hair do and makeup that demand attention in itself and it all becomes too much to handle. Wish she’d styled down the look as it all ended up being a bit over the top.
Verdict – Meera – Shibani Dandekar is Not Hot!
Verdict – Prathna – We agree again, Shibani Dandekar is Not hot
