Bollywood stars stepped out to attend the glamorous Dadasaheb Phalke Academy Awards 2018 on the evening of April 21. The star-studded night saw many A-listers bag awards for academic excellence. Many of them managed to make a dramatic entrance on the red carpet, while others left us disappointed with their sartorial choices. Here’s a brief look at the best and worst dressed of the night.
Shilpa Shetty Kundra
The 42-year-old channelled some androgynous vibes in a fusion ensemble by Shantanu and Nikhil. Her white pleated and asymmetrical kurta teamed with a pair of black semi-sheer tights, and layered with a charming Nehru jacket with intricate silver embroidery along the hem were quite a new venture for Shilpa. We think she carried it off with flair and stylist Sanjana Batra accessorised the look with a pair of earrings from Anomaly by Anam.
The Baahubali actor seems to be crushing on Anamika Khanna pieces as for yet another award ceremony we saw her draped in a monochrome sari pant ensemble by the designer. It was layered with a colourfully embroidered cape and was styled with a vibrant magenta belt cinching the waistline. This added a pop of colour to the otherwise muted attire. Batra accessorised the look with a metallic choker and we think it was a clever choice as it complemented the boho vibes the attire exuded.
Aditi Rao Hydari
Keeping to her streak of fusion fashion, the Bhoomi actor was clad in an off-shoulder heavily embellished kurta that was teamed with a voluminous black skirt.
Kriti Sanon picked a Shivan and Narresh sari in blood red for the event. The vibrant sari was set off by a generous printing of white birds and an intense gold and black border. Stylist Sukriti Grover opted to team the sari with a pair of fringed pants. Alhough the idea was interesting, we think it was a little overdone and there was just too much going on in the look.
The Padmaavat actor put his fashionable foot forward in a black kurta-pant set layered with a jacket. However, the interesting take was the checked belt design that curved the actor’s waist and amped up his style quotient.
The director-producer stepped out in a quirky attire that included a peppy monochrome shirt teamed with a blazer and pant set. A red rose embroidered on the pocket made an interesting fashion statement.
