This year’s IIFA awards, held at Tampa Bay, were overflowing with style and the celebs were seen working the green carpet more than once for the various events of the weekend. The stars pulled out all the stops for the fashion police and Bollyspice have their pick of who was hot and who was not. First up, some top picks from the green carpet:
This Sonakshi Raaj saree-gown came straight off the Lakme Fashion Week runway and onto Bipasha’s stunning curves. No flaws here!
The siren strikes again in this Gaurav Gupta gown which almost looks like it was made for Bipasha.
Verdict: Bipasha Basu – Hot
The star of the moment, Deepika Padukone, is making sure she looks the part of reigning Bollywood female and this golden Sabyasachi gown is simply exquisite. Of course she keeps the look contemporary with a pop of colour on her finger.
Her second green carpet moment is equally divine with this red Zuhair Murad lace gown. Although we’re not a fan of the clashing berry lipstick with this outfit, she still manages to pull it off.
Verdict: Deepika Padukone – Super Hot
Parineeti has certainly been upping her game on the fashion circuit but this Gaurav Gupta outfit fails to impress. Apart from a cut that doesn’t suit her body shape, her hair and accessories are a just a little bit boring.
Verdict: Parineeti Chopra – Not Hot
Vaani sticks to looking effortlessly sexy in this Nikhil Thampi monochrome look. She pulls off this revealing number without looking vulgar at all.
Verdict: Vaani Kapoor – Hot
Madhuri kept on trend with this peach Sonakshi Raaj saree-gown and miminal accesories putting the newcomers to shame.
Verdict: Madhuri Dixit – Hot
From one evergreen beauty to the next, Shri Devi wore this sexy white gown paired with golden accessories. Simply stunning.
Verdict: Sridevi – Super Hot
We absolutely love this Georgio Armani oufit. The velvet skirt teamed with the sequined top and finished with hair swept up into a bun is perfect. Royalty.
Verdict: Kareena Kapoor Khan – Hot
Heart-throb Hrithik continues to keep hearts beating with this nice black and blue tux.
Verdict: Hrithik Roshan – Hot
Yami kept things extremely simple with a plain black gown and almost no jewellery but she doesn’t she look divine?!
Verdict: Yami Gautam – Hot
A gold net saree and dark maroon lipstick…too reminiscent of Rekha?
Verdict: Malaika Arora Khan – Not Hot
Although this Sabyasachi look works magic on the runway, it just didn’t work with Kalki this time.
Verdict: Kalki Koechlin – Not Hot
The beautiful couple get it right twice with their green carpet outfits and they manage to subtly match, first with the black lapel of Aftab’s tux complementing Nin’s dress and then his grey shirt complementing her chrome gown. We also love Aftab’s pink pocket square.
Verdict: Aftab Shivdasani and Nin Dusanj – Super Hot
Dia kept things simple with a Halston Heritage gown and layered necklaces. Although we love her understated style, this outfit is just a little boring.
Verdict: Dia Mirza – Too simple
There’s just too much shine for our eyes at Bollyspice…sorry Ritesh!
Verdict: Ritesh Deshmukh – Not Hot
Divya looks stunning in this grey saree. The black blouse and pink border just add that hint of contemporary to her normally traditional look keeping her completely in her comfort zone.
Verdict: Divya Dutta – Hot
Another bold outfit from Ms Chaddha and we just don’t like it.
Verdict: Richa Chaddha – Not Hot
The man who refuses to be cast as Sonam Kapoor’s father because he’s just too young for that…can’t blame him when he looks so sharp!
Verdict: Anil Kapoor – Hot
Well we certainly like the second look a lot more than the first but Priyanka undeniably looks hot on both occasions. Here’s one star who knows what looks she can and can’t pull off.
Verdict: Priyanka Chopra – Hot
Shabana Azmi manages to always keep it classy. This mustard saree is a perfect shade with minimal but eye catching detailing and she accessorises it with a simple pair of earrings.
Verdict: Shabana Azmi – Super Hot
