Best Dressed and Top Fashion Looks at the IIFA Awards 2014

Deepika Padukone at the IIFA Awards 2014

Bollywood’s young brigade definitely ruled the green carpet at the IIFA Awards, showcasing a gorgeous section of Indian fashion and designers with unique styles, impressing myself, and the fans with their elegance and originality.

I have personally chosen each of these looks as I love the diversity, embellishment and colours of each of the gowns which were proudly shown off as the stars one by one graced the green carpet. Vaani Kapoor specifically stood out for me, showcasing a stunning embellished gold tone backless dress by Raakesh Agarvwal, a sure favourite of mine. The highly embellished gowns in general were definitely my preference amongst the fashion designs; it’s a key look for this season and is extremely flattering and stands out from a crowd.

Kalki Koechlin was a key example of how to wear embellishment, wearing Gaurav Gupta, she stood out at the IIFA Awards in this dazzling soft coloured number detailed with shoulder padding detail and long sleeves which created a princess style look.

Deepika Padukone had opted for a red gown by Lebanese designer Zuhair Murad, she looked gorgeous in this figure hugging lace number and simple updo hairstyle, and although the dark berry lips weren’t for everyone, I personally loved them! In general lip colour at the IIFA Awards was very neutral and nude, a trend and overall fashion look that has taken this season by storm, and successfully completes every look. Especially for brides, a nude lip creates a subtle but noticeable make-up look, which will go with almost every gown colour and style.

All in all, I’d say that the Indian wedding dresses and gowns and fashion showcased at the IIFA Awards are some of the best I’ve seen for a long time, they had me wishing I owned half of them!

Here is a selection of some of my favourite styles from the IIFA Awards

Beautiful Indian Jewellery from Day 1 of IIJW

Continuing on the previous post about the IIJW, here are my favourite pics from Day 1 of the show. The day obviously had beautiful Indian jewellery, but also an equally interesting mix of designer clothes.

Gitanjali Gems

This is a famous company from India and the collections were very traditional. Perfect for brides, but not for a lot of other occasions.

Surya Golds

A good mix of traditional styles and of easy to wear styles. I liked the elegant styling and the simple lines used in the collections.

Laksh Pahuja

The collection was very detail oriented. A lot of inspirational pieces, but could be tough to combine.
