RED: This colour never really goes out of fashion, but this year it made a splash. Deepika Padukone opted for a gorgeous gown from Gauri and Nainika and we loved the red mermaid-cut outfit. The gown featured an oversized bow detail on the back. (Source: shaleenanathani/ Instagram)

Kangana Ranaut knows just the right formula to pack a powerful punch with her style and what better colour than red to do that. The actor was seen wearing a gorgeous body-hugging Tony Ward couture gown with a long train featuring sheer lace cut-outs and tulle sparkles with beading on it at an award ceremony. Her larger than life jacket with ruffles and voluminous sleeves added to the charm. (Source: File Photo)

PINK: Pink was a huge hit this season and several Bollywood beauties were spotted wearing the colour. While some did exceedingly well, others not quite. Priyanka Chopra looked gorgeous in a hot pink pleated midi skirt and matching jacket-style collared full-sleeve blouse, both from Fendi. (Source: File Photo)

MISS: Esha Gupta wore a hot pink Sachin And Babi gown with balloon sleeves to the event. While she is mostly known for her risqué numbers, Gupta chose to keep it mellowed down in the outfit. Givn how the dress hung loose and seemed ill-fitting on her, Gupta surely could have chosen to style more wisely. She accessorised with a pair of H Ajoomal earrings and a high bun with fringes only made her look shabby. (Source: File Photo)

Rani Mukerji, on the other hand was a big let down. She was seen in a bright pink long kurta with a matching lehenga from Raw Mango with gold embroidery on it. But the colour looked too jarring and overall disappointed. (Source: File Photo)

GREY: Often associated as a winter colour, grey was a huge hit this year. From saris to lehengas, the colour was spotted almost everywhere. Shilpa Shetty wore an exciting grey sari from the house of Nidhi Malhan and looked ravishing. The blouse not only added colour but also added an interesting twist to the entire ensemble.

It may not be the first time for Malaika Arora, but the 44-year-old made her fans go weak in their knees when she stepped out in a breathtaking silver metallic gown. The thigh-high slit gown, designed by Amit Aggarwal, will steal your heart and you’ll want to wear it to the next ball you’re attending. We love the grey pumps she opted for and the way she left her layered soft curls on one side to give a retro feel. ((Source: malaikaarorakhanofficial)
