If red carpet events at Cannes have been in the news these past few days,on Friday evening it was Bollywood’s turn to scorch the red carpet in Mumbai. At filmmaker Karan Johar’s 40th birthday party,almost all those who matter in tinseltown had descended upon the venue — Taj Land’s End,Bandra. The dress code for the evening,that was orchestrated by Johar’s designer friend Manish Malhotra,was black and red. After much speculation about what the birthday boy would be wearing at his bash — with Malhotra and Varun Bahl’s names being tossed around — it was finally a crisp Tom Ford suit that Johar chose to don. Among the early entrants was close friend Shah Rukh Khan,who walked in with wife Gauri in a rich red dress; he even played host at the do. The other Khan—Aamir Khan — opted for a Chinese-collared suit while wife Kiran Rao looked resplendent in a blue Gaurav Gupta sari.

The evening belonged to the bevy of glamorous women who turned up in the finest of evening gowns. Particularly eye-catching was Bipasha Basu’s backless outfit by Arpan Vohra. Another red carpet scorcher was Malaika Arora-Khan,whose colourful floor-length dress made her the cynosure of shutterbugs. Kajol,Priyanka Chopra,Preity Zinta and Kareena and Karisma Kapoor too looked their stunning selves. Clearly,Johar knows how to throw a party to remember.
