While all eyes were on the 64th Filmfare Awards 2019 winners’ list for the best in Bollywood cinema, ours were scanning the red carpet for some of the evening’s most dazzling divas and alluring designer looks. And, like a good Bollywood epic – the fashion was big, bold, glitz and glam!
Get the look: From the high-end to the high street, Ashlee Starratt helps you to get the look.
If you haven’t seen her gritty ‘true-to-life’ portrayal of heroic flight attendant Neerja Bhanot in the biographical thriller ‘Neerja’, let us tell you – Sonam Kapoor has some epic acting chops that have skyrocketed her to the top of Bollywood’s ‘It’ List. We love her in this foxy fuchsia mermaid-tail couture gown from Ralph & Russo. Incorporate the season’s most chic shade into your day-time look with this pretty-in-hot-pink pleated skirt from Miss Selfridge for RO19.5.
Cinch the look: With a graphic-print tee (H&M, RO6.9) and black and gold studded clutch (Aldo Accessories, RO17.3) that offset your look with an urban edge.
Bolly babe Katrina brought old-world glamour to the red carpet at this year’s Filmfare awards in a delicately-embroidered sea-foam gown from Falguni and Shane Peacock. We can’t wait to see her alongside former beau, the legendary Salman Khan, in the upcoming historical drama ‘Bharat’. Take a page out of her colour palette in this mint-green cuffed chiffon blouse from Dorothy Perkins (RO13) for an ultra-feminine anchor.
Cinch the look: With a pair of tropical platforms (Chinese Laundry, RO30.7) that will draw the eye down your silhouette, and a delicately-beaded white bag for added contrast (Zara, RO19.9).
Bollywood icon Kajol kept it sleek and classic on the red carpet in a long-sleeved black gown with subtle crystal detailing, icy shoulder-grazing earrings, and slick high pony-tail. And really, when you’re one of the industry’s most-accoladed actresses, you don’t live by the rules – you break them and set your own. Let your own inner icon shine in this velvety glitter stone embellished dress from Self-Portrait (RO166.1).
Cinch the look: In a pair of sky-high pink sling-back pumps (Nine West, RO34.2) and a set of rose-gold and blue jewel drop earrings (River Island, RO6).
Bollywood’s hottest newcomer is already earning her stripes, winning ‘Best Début Award (Female)’ for her role in the disaster drama ‘Kedarnath’ at last week’s Filmfare Awards ceremony in Mumbai. Stepping out for the first time on the red carpet in a stunning gold and white lehenga by Abu Jani and Sandeep Kholsa, we can’t wait to see what Ms. Khan has in store next! Get inspired by her embellished ensemble in this sequinned embroidered bolero capelet from Needle & Thread (127.6).
Cinch the look: In a white lace skirt (H&M, RO13.4) and a gold cuff (Promod, RO5.5) to up the feminine factor.
When you’re born into Bollywood royalty, you’d better look the part – and Janhvi Kapoor was on her A-game at this year’s Filmfare Awards in a metallic ecru-coloured gown from Maison Yeya. The daughter of Bollywood icon, the late great Sridevi, Janhvi is slated to star next in a new biopic as Gunjan Saxena – India’s first female combat pilot. Grab inspo for her red carpet look here, in this neutral-toned one-shoulder mini-dress from Goen J. (RO230.7).
Cinch the look: With some pops of colour from a pair of pink snake-skin sandals (River Island, RO20) and an eye-catching bohemian bag (Dorothy Perkins, RO17.5).
