Ranking the best and worst dressed celebrities at the 68th Filmfare Award
Filmfare is one of the most prestigious award ceremonies of the Indian entertainment industry and it’s always exhilarating for viewers to see several celebrities come together under one roof. But for us, of course, the most exciting part is to see what everyone’s wearing.
The 68th Filmfare Awards were held on Thursday in Mumbai and while some artists turned heads with their sartorial choices others let us down with their fashion statements. We’ve ranked the celebrities according to best and worst dressed on the red carpet.
The actor was dressed to kill and kill she did — she won best actor for her performance in Gangubai Kathiawadi. Bhatt looked ravishing in her customised black grown by Tony Ward. The dress was long with a bedazzled top and fitted bottom. She had her hair slicked back in a messy bun and kept her accessories and makeup to a minimum, giving it the perfect balance.
The Mili actor opted for a beautiful purple flared gown by Delhi-based designer duo Gauri & Nainika. She added a silver choker and left her hair open to complete her look. Kapoor chose a glossy makeup look that complemented the vibrant purple dress that stole the show for us.
We love it when men try different types of suits instead of sticking to basic blacks on the red carpet and this one was a hit. Kaushal wore pants and a coat of the same shade of black with Anamika Khanna’s usual style of white embroidery on the coat. He paired them with a shirt in a darker shade of black and black shades. All black with a pop of drama? Love it!
While we loved Kaushal’s black on black, we also wanted a break from black suits on the red carpet and that’s what we got in Anil Kapoor’s all-white look. The evergreen star looked handsome in an off-white suit by Raghavendra Rathore paired with a striped tie.
The Freddy actor made a glamorous entrance in a grey co-ord featuring a one-shouldered top and a skirt with a very high side slit. She completed her look with ear cuffs, light smokey eyes and sleek hair.
The YouTuber-turned-actor looked stunning in a white shimmery dress by Rohit Gandhi & Rahul Khanna with dazzling heels. She opted for minimalist nude makeup and sleek hair. We loved her overall look.
The classy actor has an inherited quirky style and went for a Sherlock look for Filmfare. He opted for a long black Gucci overcoat with a black bow tie that somehow, really, really worked for him.
The best actor winner’s attire matched his Filmfare trophy as he wore an all-black suit with a black bowtie. He opted for an effortless look, though we wish he had chosen something a bit more unique. Don’t get us wrong, he looked great in his basic classy black outfit but we just feel like he could have had more fun with his look.
Bhumi Pednekar got a well deserved win for the best actress (critics) but her fashion choice was a bit questionable last night. She wore a silver and white corset gown by Rami Kadi Maison de Couture, which had an odd division between the bodice and skirt. There’s something about the way the corset top hugs her body that looks off — perhaps the strange band-like indentation around her waist? The skirt didn’t do her any favours either and looked a bit like a bedsheet tied around her hips.
Her minimalistic makeup and loose curls managed to save the look from looking completely drab.
The actor chose to have her Filmfare look be an ode to heroes of the Indian entertainment industry by donning a shimmery black suit by Manish Malhotra. She opted for lots of rings, her husband’s watch, clunky black shoes and open hair, which could have worked really well, emphasis on could. Instead, the look fell flat for us and felt a bit uninspired.
