The 18th edition of International Indian Film Academy Awards – better known as IIFA Awards – wrapped up with sheer style in New York. The larger-than-life awards ceremony was a dreamy night for all Bollywood fanatics – the biggest of B-town celebs gathered to have a great gala time and honour the best of Hindi cinema. The night also witnessed breathtaking performances by Diljit Dosanjh, Katrina Kaif, Shahid Kapoor and Salman Khan; the hosts Karan Johar and Saif Ali Khan left the audience in splits with their kickass humour.
As much as the IIFA Awards is about honouring best of Hindi Cinema, the red carpet is also very much a crucial part of what makes IIFA special. This year saw a splash of stunning outfit choices and appearances, and of course, some major fashion disasters as well.
Here’s our list of worst and best dressed divas at IIFA 2017.
Alia Bhatt: Alia made her debut at IIFA this year! And undeniably, she made it big! Not only did she grab the Best Actor in lead role (Female) for her spectacular performance in Udta Punjab but also ruled the red carpet like a boss! She slipped into a white elegant lehenga from Manish Malhotra at IIFA Rocks and looked absolute gorgeous. We loved her in that! The diva also turned out to be the best dressed at the main award ceremony as well, as she donned a multicolored crystal embellished strapless number from Zuhair Murad. She looked like a true gem!
Katrina Kaif: After the red and gold sari debacle at IIFA Rocks, Katrina made a classic comeback and turned heads in a gorgeous powder blue gown by Ziad Nakad couture. With just the right amount of glitter and flair, Katrina was stunner at main IIFA night.
Neha Dhupia: Unsurprisingly, Neha Dhupia yet again did a unforgivable fashion blunder as she opted for a weird tent-like ball gown. The mismatched make-up and hairdo added to her fashion misery.
Disha Patani: The innocent beauty won the best debut actress for her role in MS Dhoni – The untold story, and we are so happy! But the diva also rocked her IIFA debut in a classic and stylish Falguni and Shane outfit. The embellished body chain and nude make-up went well with the attire and accentuated her overall look.
Bipasha Basu: We don’t really know what has happened to her fashion choices!
Shilpa Shetty: Slayer Shilpa Shetty slayed yet again in a gold Monish Jaising ensemble. Her well toned figure gave structure to the otherwise okayish outfit. She looked great but we feel, she could have chosen a better dress.
