2013 is drawing to a close and we can’t help but wonder how the past 12 months have passed so quickly. Each month, we’ve seen some stellar looks from the stars and if you’ve forgotten their great outfits (and all the hardwork of those stylists!), we are giving you the chance to vote for your favourite. To make it simpler, we’ve broken them down into different categories. Are you ready to see which ones I’ve picked? Get ready to cast your ballots!
Best Red Carpet Look:
Now this was probably the hardest decision, whittling down so many gorgeous gowns and narrowing it down to just 5 looks. I love Priyanka Chopra‘s head-turning Gauri & Nainika vintage print gown that she wore to the MTV VMA India Awards. Sonam Kapoor might have wowed us in that floral Dolce & Gabbana gown at Cannes but her Elie Saab gown made a bigger impact. Alia Bhatt sure knows how to dress her age. At the Vogue Beauty Awards, Alia chose a satin Dior gown that looked absolutely sensational. Deepika Padukone might have favoured Naeem Khan year round but it was the sheer Prabal Gurung gown that she wore to the Filmfare awards that toed the line between sexy and chic. Jacqueline Fernandez‘s neon pink gown from Pernia Qureshi was a perfect example of how minimalism can make an impact.
We saw plenty of anarkalis, saris and hybrid combinations from the likes of Sabyasachi, Manish Malhotra and Shehlaa by Shehla Khan, being the hot favourites. Anushka Sharma sexed up the sari with a bra top while PC went neon, we loved Kareena Kapoor Khan’s Soup by Sougat Paul while Kangana Ranaut‘s handloom sari was a refreshing change. Sonam Kapoor‘s lady-like anarkali had us sold.
Best Press Appearance:
Promoting a film is hard work – aside from shooting the film, stars have to be present at music and trailer launches, press promos in malls in various cities and appearances on popular TV shows. It’s exhausting to say the least, yet they manage to look so darn good.
