IIFA 2017: Katrina Kaif or Taapsee Pannu – who carried the red and gold combination better?

At IIFA 2017, both Katrina Kaif and Taapsee Pannu went for an Indo-fusion look but neither could impress us much with their sartorial choices. However, we think their beauty and hair game were right on point.

Red and gold is a classic combination but not many would have thought that Bollywood beauties would go for it at IIFA 2017. It just goes to prove that we are in for a whole lot of surprise this year with Katrina Kaif and Taapsee Pannu already starting the celebrations on such a bright note, especially when the unspoken rule at such big events is sticking to montone outfits. Both Kaif and Pannu went for an Indo-fusion look at IIFA Rocks but neither could impress us much with their sartorial choices. However, we think their beauty and hair game were right on point.

Kaif, whose film Jagga Jasoos opposite Ranbir Kapoor is scheduled to release soon was seen in an Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla outfit. We like the shimmer and style of her gold blouse but the red ruffled sari looked really garish.

Even though we appreciate the idea behind pairing such an ususual blouse with a sari, we think a muted colour would have looked better here instead of the blood red one. Celebrity stylist Tanya Ghavri could have done better. But there’s no denying that she looked gorgeous neck-up. A big round of applause for the actress for trying something different with her make-up, especially her hair this time. The deep kohled eyes with the winged liner and red pout looked gorgeous on her and those side-swept soft curls added oomph to her look.

Taapsee Pannu, on the other hand, stepped out in a red gown by Kommal Sood and we think her outfit, make-up and hair was a mismatch. First things first, the brocade work on the flared gown is not something we particulary like.

Also, her make-up, even though gorgeous with a winged eyeliner, bright red lips shade and a red bindi, did not complement her gown at all. Not to miss the updo with red roses on the side. It was more suited for a sari look. We have come to expect a lot more from celebrity stylist Devki B and it’s a shame to say that she disappointed us.

If we have to pick, we would go with Katrina Kaif.

      My question is SIMPLE...Why are we going to New York to give awards ??? I know IIFA is for propagating Bollywood for business. But we look as a pus y when we do this idiocy. U can send it to Uganda, Nigeria....There are more fans there than America. Just dont send to English speaking white nations. THEY LAUGH ON US AND OUR NAUTANKI.

        Vote Taapsee Pannu. She looks gorgeous. Elegant and bold Indian culture. Where as Katrina's outfit displays play safe at ude by not being bold enough to display Indian culture.

          Here s where you are wrong. A gown which Taapsee is wearing is nowhere near Indian culture, where as saree or kameez shalwar is what Indian culture is. So taapsee is definitely not representing any Indian culture. And if you're only referring to the red bindi she is wearing then that's not enough.

          Wearing something for some occasion is a super personal choice and I don't think that people should compare two complete different looks .If the two stars are carrying there look properly and looking equally confident to flaunt their swag,I think there is no point of choosing one.coz everybody is born free to wear and look as one pleases.
