Award season is here! And even though most of us treat it like bird droppings on a white shirt — annoying but harmless, a conversation starter and even a good omen — Anuya and I live for it. It gives us something to do other than bitch and whine about the crappy movies we had to endure during the year. What could be better than these very crappy movies being awarded? I’ll tell you what. The preceding Red Carpet. For some it’s a victory lap for others it’s a walk of shame.
This is how Bollywood dressed for the 19th Colors Screen Awards.
I love the colour on Deepika Padukone but I’m not sure about the lace overlay. But if you have a body like that and a face like that and hair that falls in perfect waves, you can pretty much wear what the hell you want.
What do all those symbols on Sonakshi Sinha’s gown stand for? Is this a coded message for Prof Robert Langdon? Let us know if Hinduism needs to be saved, Sonakshi. But seriously, why are the wings of a bleached crow holding up your breasts?
Ranveer Singh seems to be under the impression that he looks ‘cool’ in anything he chooses to wear. Sorry but you ain’t rumoured girlfriend Deepika. So show some respect even to the 19th Colors Screen Awards and put on some well-cut pants.
Does Parineeti Chopra have a rash? Is she recovering from a sunburn? Does she play a Victorian slave in her next film? Why else would she be dressed like a body bag with a bow and hairband?
Huma Qureshi, stop employing Parineeti’s stylist.
You know it’s a dark day in fashion when Ameesha Patel looks less trashy. By some weird stroke of luck or a hard look in the mirror, Ameesha ditched her previous ‘look at me, look at me’ avatar for this surprisingly subtle-sexy look. I am so overwhelmed that I won’t even question her presence at a Bollywood awards show.
UPDATE: Looks like I spoke too soon. A VERY observant friend pointed out that you can actually see her nipple pasties. Guess old habits die hard.
The awesomeness of this dress is lost on Alia Bhatt.
Gauri Khan looks refreshingly sober here. Her tan seems to have dulled to a more human hue and the dress is simple and elegant. The shoes and clutch do not deserve a mention.
The sheer talent in this photo is blinding.
