Bollywood was big on fashion in May with Aishwarya and Sonam doing us proud on the red carpet at Cannes, while back home other B-town beauties continued to experiment with style - some resulting in hits, and other misses. Here's a roundup of the fashion quotient displayed by celebrities in the month of May.

Hit: Jacqueline Fernandez looked summer ready in an embroidered floor-length Andrew GN gown from their Resort 2016 collection at the HT Most Stylish Awards. We love her Hollywood-inspired hair and warm purple lipshade too. (Photo: APH Images)

Hit: Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was recently spotted in a black Naeem Khan gown at HT Most Stylish Awards. She kept her make-up minimum. We think she looked fabulous. (Photo: APH Images)

Miss: She's not usually the one to disappoint us but this time she did. Kangana Ranaut was spotted in a Fendi dress at a recent event and there's nothing that we like about this look. The dress might have looked better if worn a little shorter. And those grey pumps are a complete no-no. (Photo: Varinder Chawla)

Hit: Anushka Sharma looked gorgeous in a suit by Nikhil Thampi. She finished out the look with sleek hair and studded flats. Good job! (Photo: Varinder Chawla)

Miss: Sonam Kapoor picked an Anavila sari look straight from the AIFW runway to inaugurate the Kashish Film Festival. She wore it with oxfords. Can't say we are a big fan of this look. (Photo: Varinder Chawla)

Hit: Lisa Haydon was spotted in a high-low Mason By Michelle Mason dress for her appearance on the sets of a TV show. She looked good. (Photo: Varinder Chawla)

Hit: Radhika Apte looked lovely in a yellow Topshop dress and Zara pumps. P.S. We love her soft curls. (Photo: Varinder Chawla)

Miss: Mini Mathur picked an Anavila sari for her appearance at the MAMI Film Club. Wearing her hair down, she finished out the look with silver earrings and a pair of nude pumps. Sorry to say but we are not a big fan. (Photo: Varinder Chawla)

Hit: Sonam Kapoor picked a Ulyana Sergeenko dress for her appearance at the MAMI Film Club. The actor finished out her look with a ring from Aurelle, a Bottega Veneta clutch and red lips. We can't get over her retro-inspired hair. (Photo: Varinder Chawla)

Miss: Priyanka Chopra was recently spotted at Mumbai airport in a white hoodiie, black top and leather quarter pants. Maybe, the idea behind it was to be a rocker babe but it did not work. (Photo: Varinder Chawla)

Hit: Sayani was recently spotted in a striped Anupamaa maxi and boy, she looked great in it. (Photo: Varinder Chawla)

Hit: Radhika Apte was recently spotted in a Zara dress and Clarks sneakers. Easy and casual, we think her look was perfect for summers. (Photo: APH Images)

Hit: Lisa Haydon was spotted pairing Alexander Wang leggings with a Bebe crop top and Mason by Michelle Mason striped jacket during the promotion of her upcoming film Housefull 3. The actor finished out her look with a high ponytail. She looked sharp. (Photo: APH Images)

Hit: Sonam Kapoor was the epitome of chicness at HT Most Stylish Awards in a suit from Parisian label Dice Kayek‘s Spring 2016 couture collection. We love how she kept the look smart and monochromatic. (Photo: APH Images)

Miss: Jacqueline Fernandez was spotted in Dior during the promotion of her upcoming film Housefull 3. With her hair in a ponytail, the actor finished out the look with Dior earrings, a pair of white sneakers and mauve lip colour. There's nothing extraordinary that we see here. (Photo: APH Images)

Miss: Shraddha Kapoor attended HT Most Stylish Awards in Delhi wearing a checkered dress and calf-length boots from Dior‘s Resort 2016 collection. We are not too fond of this look. Maybe, a darker goth-coloured lipshade would have looked better. (Photo: APH Images)

Hit: For the latest round of promotions, Lisa Haydon picked a minimalist Prabal Gurung dress. She finished out the look with a pair of Saint Laurent pumps and a pink lip shade. We think she looked hot. (Photo: Varinder Chawla)

Hit: Kangana Ranaut looked boho chic in a custom plaid dress made from Liva fabric. Do you like what you see? (Photo: Varinder Chawla)

Hit: Aishwarya Rai looked pretty in a dull gold Sabyasachi suit. Enough said! (Photo: Varinder Chawla)

Hit: At HT Most Stylish Awards, Sophie Choudry was spotted in a strapless Manish Malhotra gown. We think she looked lovely with the sideswept do and red lipshade. (Photo: APH Images)

Hit: Lisa Haydon was seen sporting a black mesh top with a strapless bra and a rainbow hued fringe skirt from Christopher Kane's Spring 2016 collection. We love how she paired it with a choker. The only thing that we don't like, those heels. Maybe, strappy ones would have looked better. (Photo: APH Images)

Miss: This is such a dampner! Except for those black jeggins we don't like anything about this look. Maybe, Miss Kaif did not give two hoots about fashion. (Photo: Varinder Chawla)

Hit: Bollywood fashionista Sonam Kapoor was spotted in a Ralph and Russo gown for her last formal appearance at the amfAR Gala. Styled by Rhea Kapoor, the 30-year-old actress looked lovely in the gold-embroidered gown. What was interesting, though, was that Sonam paired the off-shoulder dress with a pair of big golden jhumkas. Nice way of bringing in some desi glam to her look. (Photo: Instagram)

Hit: For the premiere of Sarabjit, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan picked a Theia Couture gown. With her hair styled in soft waves, the actor finished out the look with understated jewellery. Even though we are not a big fan of the gown, we thnk she did good. (Photo: Varinder Chawla)

Miss: Kajal Aggarwal was recently spotted in Payal Khandwala. We think the actor carried off the look in a chartreuse suit and white tunic really well but what killed the look was those nude pumps. Bummer! (Photo: Varinder Chawla)

Hit: Sonam Kapoor looked like a White Swan Queen as she posed for photographers at the screening of the film Mal De Pierres at the 69th Cannes Film Festival, in a stunning sari-inspired Ralph & Russo creation. The silk crepe dress with embroidered silver threadwork, silver bullion, beads and crystals looked lovely on her. Full points on styling. (Photo: AP)

Miss: Wearing an Azzi & Osta gown, Richa Chadha attended the premiere of her movie Sarabjit. We love how she styled her hair in soft curls but other than that there's nothing much we like here. Those Christian Louboutin pumps were a miss with the gown and the make-up too was way off tangent. (Photo: Varinder Chawla)

Shilpa Shetty, style file, fashion trends

Shilpa Shetty was seen in a Karan Malhotra jumpsuit to attend a press meet for IIFA 2016. She finished out her look with Bvlgari serpent watch, a Maharani monogrammed Isharya clutch and leopard print Dolce and Gabbana sandals. We like everything about this look except for the platform sandals. (Photo: Varinder Chawla)

Hit: Sonam Kapoor turned up the heat in a black and blue sari by designer Rimzim Dadu, with fuchsia lips, neatly tied bun and a striking black collar necklace for the press interaction at Cannes. (Photo: AP)

Hit: Radhika Apte kept it simple in Deme by Gabriella separates during the latest round of promotion of her upcoming movie. The actor finished out her look with blue ankle-strap sandals from Dune and understated make-up. We think she looked good. (Photo: Varinder Chawla)

Hit: Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is undeniably the most sought-after and photographed Bollywood celebrity at Cannes each year. And why not! At her third appearance this time, Aishwarya looked stunning in an embellished pink-gold Elie Saab gown, turning heads on the red carpet while attending the premiere of Steven Spielberg's The BFG. The Sarbjit actress paired the gown with rose gold jewellery from Boucheron, Ferragamo shoes and a Pure Brick lip shade from the L’Oréal Paris Pure Reds collection, her hair done in a classic old Hollywood style.

Hit: Athiya kept it simple and breezy in a long kurta and roomy palazzos with zero embellishments. We think she was absolutely summer ready. (Photo: Varinder Chawla)

Hit: Gucci seems to be Kangana Ranaut's favourite these days, Photographed in seperates from the fashion label, the actor finished out the look with a Gucci belt, pair of classic pumps and Bulgari bag. She looked perfect. (Photo: Varinder Chawla)

Miss: Radhika Apte was spotted in a floral-print Ash Haute Couture dress. Wearing her hair down, the actor finished out the look with sneakers from Clarks. We think a messy ponytail would have looked better. (Photo: Varinder Chawla)

Hit: If ever there was a fashionable ace card played, it was this. The gorgeous Aishwarya Rai Bachchan proved her mettle with her latest, extremely controversial look at the Cannes red carpet. The Sarbjit actress wore a pretty Rami Kadi floral gown, but what stole show was the damsel's daring purple lips at The Land Of The Moon premiere. (Photo: @afashionistasdiaries/Instagram)

Miss: Mallika Sherawat attended the amfAR gala wearing a lavender Georges Hobeika gown. To start with, we are not a big fan of the gown and the messed-up hair did not work at all. (Photo: AP)

Hit: For the Chopard party in Cannes, Sonam chose a sheer black, Gothic Ralph & Russo gown that gave off a very vintage glam vibe. The strapless creation was paired with some bling from a Chopard diamond neckpiece and a pair of lace gloves. Sonam highlighted her lips in bright red and eyes with minimal makeup. We think she looked lovely. (Photo: Instagram)

HIt: White seems to be Sonam Kapoor's go-to colour for evening events. She looked ravishing in a white ensemble by Ralph and Russo. The exclusive column gown by the British couture house brought out the Bollywood fashionista's stunning silhouette, ending in a short train. The floral netted long cape gave the whole ensemble a very delicate touch. She paired the gown with a pair of Ferragamo stilletos, and some bling on her fingers.

Hit: Divya Khosla looked pretty in Am:Pm separates for a recent appearance. The filmmaker-actor finished out her look with earrings from Accessory Quotient, Swarovski ring, Judith Leiber minaudière and Christian Louboutin pumps. We love that she opted for a ponytail. (Photo: Varinder Chawla)

Hit: Sonam Kapoor left for Cannes looking super stylish. Yes, it's her airport look! Love the P.E.L.L.A. silk maxi and cape, not to forget, the tan Hermès Kelly. (Photo: Varinder Chawla)

Hit: Amy Jackson looked chic in an embellished bolero with wide-leg trousers, both from Pankaj and Nidhi. With her in a ponytail, the actor finished out her look with a pair of black heels. (Photo: Varinder Chawla)

Hit: Alia Bhatt was a breath of fresh air in this scorching heat in a Topshop Unique dress and ankle-strap white sandals. Very summery! (Photo: Varinder Chawla)

Hit: Having disappointed us a couple of times with her appearances in the past, looks like Sayani Gupta decided to go the fool-proof way with this beautiful jumpsuit by Lola by Suman B. She finished out her look with a cuff from Gehna Jewellers and Zara pumps. She did good! (Photo: Varinder Chawla)

Miss: Kajal Aggarwal was spotted at the airport in a blue silk jumpsuit. Nothing about her look works, in other words, it's a disaster. What was she thinking! (Photo: Varinder Chawla)

Hit: Monica Dogra is known for her superb dressing sense. This time the lady impressed us with a dress from Shift and t-strap wedges. (Photo: Varinder Chawla)

Hit: Athiya Shetty looked really cool in a pale blue off-shoulder top and white pants. Perfect for the summers, we say. (Photo: Varinder Chawla)

Hit: For the promotions of Sarabjit, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan picked Payal Khandwala separates and Dior pumps. We love how the actor kept the look simple and paired it with silver-toned accessories from Amrapali. (Photo: Varinder Chawla)

Hit: Aditi Rao Hydari attended the launch of a coffee table book in Mumbai wearing a one-shouldered Hema dress. The actor finished out the look with jewellery from Minawala. She looked good. (Photo: Varinder Chawla)

Hit: We hardly see her in Indianwear and it's a refreshing change. Athiya Shetty looked beautiful in a white suit complete with jhumkas and and juti. (Photo: Varinder Chawla)

Hit: Richa Chadha kept it simple in a pink knee-length dress. There's just one minor glitch with this look and it's the bag she is carrying. Other than that, we think she did fine. (Photo: Varinder Chawla)

Miss: Actor Shobhita Dhulipala was recently spotted in a Huemn’s animal print mini at the unveiling of the Raghav 2.0 trailer. The actress wanted to add a bit of quirk with her striped socks and platform boots but we think a pair of white sneakers would have done the trick too. (Photo: Varinder Chawla)

Miss: At L’Oréal’s Cannes Collection unveiling, brand ambassador Sonam Kapoor was spotted in a white and black Diogo Miranda outfit. Even though we applaud the actor's choice to be different we think the satin pants looked rather odd and her make-up was a little off too. Did not impress us at all. (Photo: Varinder Chawla)

Hit: Malaika Arora looked like a princess in a pastel Anita Dongre lehenga. The actor finished out her look with smokey eyes and a wispy updo. (Photo: Varinder Chawla)

Miss: We usually like what she wears but this time Kalki Koechlin did not impress us at all. The paisley print Shruti Sancheti jumspsuit looked really busy with all that print and the slit sleeves. Even the tan Gucci sandals did not impress us. (Photo: Varinder Chawla)

Hit: Prachi Desai picked a checkerboard print dress from Yolan Cris’ Haute Couture collection for the promotion of her upcoming film Azhar. For a hot summer day, we think she did really well. (Photo: Varinder Chawla)

Hit: Parineeti Chopra picked a floral Hemant and Nandita romper for a recent event. The actor paired it with a full-sleeved collared Zara blouse and nude Steve Madden sandals. Very chic! (Photo: Varinder Chawla)

Hit: We spotted Tabu after a long time and boy, did she surprise us? Yes! We think she looked lovely in this Malini Ramani sari. (Photo: Varinder Chawla)

Hit: Usually, she is not the one to experiment when it comes to traditional affairs but this time Dia Mirza surprised us when she picked a grey Shantanu and Nikhil gown for Bipasha and Karan's reception. The Renu Oberoi tassel earrings and the smoky eyes looked great on her. (Photo: Varinder Chawla)

Hit: Divya Khosla picked a cheery yellow Astha Narang lehenga for a recent appearance. The actor paired it with jewellery from Aquamarine. Not a big fan of the lehenga but we think Divya manged to pull it off. (Photo: Varinder Chawla)

Hit: Jacqueline Fernandez picked separates from The Circus for a recent event. The actor finished out the look with a Bulgari watch, pink pumps from Leo Studio Design and a sleek ponytail. We think she wore the look well! (Photo: Varinder Chawla)

Miss: Even though we love this Nikasha sari fresh off the AIFW runway, we can't get over Sonam Kapoor's strapless blouse. The half-frill design looked really odd. (Photo: Varinder Chawla)

Miss: We don't know what she was thinking but there's nothing about this look that could hold our attention. She could have done better. (Photo: Varinder Chawla)

Hit: We can't find any faults with this look. We think Sophie Choudry looked really lovely in this festive Manish Malhotra lehenga and jewelry from Anmol. (Photo: Varinder Chawla)

Hit: She is a fashionista in her own right and we love the Manish Malhotra gown Neha Dhupia picked for a recent soiree. Wearing her hair down, the actor finished out the look with a metallic chain-strap bag and jewellery from Anmol. (Photo: Varinder Chawla)
