The sixth edition of the Vogue Beauty Awards witnessed a bevy of Bollywood beauties dressed in striking outfits. As the evening celebrated beauty, the red carpet shone brightly with faces, some new, some old. We pick the three ladies who stood out from the crowd for their stellar sartorial choices.
Anushka of Dil Dhadakne Do fame certainly made our heart beat faster as she lived out her fairytale in a lemon-yellow neoprene and tulle gown by Gauri and Nainika. Although the gown was beautiful and reminiscent of the summer breeze, her make-up was not up to the mark. She kept it minimalist but the colour of her dress made her look pale and washed out. Perhaps a pop of colour on her lips could’ve elevated her look. She made her first red carpet appearance with beau Virat Kohli, who she also referred to as her arm candy. She rightly bagged the ‘Beauty of the Year’ award on the night.
It seems that Sunil Shetty’s daughter has gotten off the right foot in Bollywood. The budding actor, who won the ‘Fresh Face’ award in the ‘Best of Bollywood’ section, was spotted in a mustard Gauri and Nainika off-shoulder gown and looked gorgeous. Soon to be seen in Salman Khan’s production Hero, the debutante accessorised her look with Dior earrings and a Jimmy Choo clutch. She went for a dark lip and kept the rest of her make-up subtle, which truly showed that she’s soon to rise to the ranks of B-town’s fashionistas.
She looked statuesque on the occasion in this cobalt blue Gauri and Nainika number. Full points to Dhupia for adding an element of quirk to her look with an eight-ball minaudiere by Judith Leiber. She pulled off her plunging neckline by drawing attention to her face with her sleek bun and dark eyes, adding oomph to her look. Hosting the night along with Vogue India’s editor Priya Tanna, Neha carried out her duties for the night in style.
