The Forbes India Trophy races took place in Mumbai at the Mahalaxmi racecourse on Monday and as one would expect, a number of Mumbai’s well-heeled socialites attended the races in all their designer finery.

Sisters Aditi and Arzoo Govitrikar were a study in contrasts. While the former wore a green strapless maxi dress, the latter wore an orange strapless mini and accessorized it with a feathered fascinator.

Jewelry designer Queenie Singh showed off her enviable figure in a burgundy figure-hugging dress with a boat-neck collar. She too wore a fascinator which was perched on the right side of her head.

See what the other ladies wore:

Designer Junelia Aguiar Chandler opted for a 1950’s retro and romantic look by wearing a large sun hat, a frilly blouse and a full skirt. The key elements were her (almost) round bag and peep-toe heels.

Former TV show host, Kamal Siddhu failed to impress us in her much-too-basic look. Her black zip-up blouse and white pants could have been accessorized better with some statement jewelry or a statement clutch.

Michelle Poonawalla wore her bright pop-print Pucci pants with a demure black top and a Bottega Veneta knot clutch. A perfect balance between the colourful and the basic!

Natasha Poonawalla, on the other hand, enjoyed colour-blocking in a grey sleeveless top, pink pleated knotted-skirt, a purple clutch and glittery blue shoes. This is undoubtedly our favourite look.

Songstress Shibani Kashyap was summer-ready in a white dress with a lace yoke and a hat with a floral print. But while we like her Tiffany blue and white bag, we think she could have ditched those clunky wedges. Agree?

We also spotted actresses Madhoo Shah and Vidya Malvade. Again, the two ladies were a study of contrasts. While Madhoo opted to wear a bright pink dress with a gold metallic belt, Vidya looked like an apsara in a white Lucknowi chikan saree.
