The 67th Filmfare Awards held on 30th August this year at the Jio World Convention Centre in Mumbai was meant to be a star-studded affair. And an occasion like this calls for Bollywood beauties dressed in their dazzling best with fashion from across the world. This year too, it was no exception as the divas put their best foot forward in being a treat for the shutterbugs.
Know more about the 5 best dressed divas at the awards ceremony this year and take a style tip or two on how you can take some fashion inspo from them.
1. Katrina Kaif
Draped in a shimmery, dual-toned nine yards, Katrina sizzled on the red carpet of the Filmfare Awards this year. The sequinned, embroidered blouse paired with the transparent saree gave definition to her look with its plunging neckline. She let a pair of dainty earrings be her only accessory to ensure that her ensemble does not look OTT. The diva kept her makeup minimal with nude glossy lips, highlighter, mascara, and smokey eyes for that hint of drama. Her side-parted hair flowed down her back.
What You Can Do
If you love shimmer, this look is tailor-made for you. With the festive season just around the corner, you can take a cue from here and balance the glitz of your nine yards with the classy no-makeup look. Settle for a colour of your choice. Go with a bright colour like fuschia or orange, a toned down hue like beige, or the evergreen black with sequinned designs and you’ll be almost ready to make heads turn wherever you go. For the makeup, settle for the bare minimum. If you want a dark lip colour, go easy on the eyes and vice versa. And, ta-da, you’re ready to step out in style.
2. Mrunal Thakur
This diva made her presence felt in the real sense of the term in a classy black tuxedo – a black coat over an equally classy crisp white shirt, black bell bottoms and a bow of the same colour to complete the look. The androgenous style quotient set her apart from all the sarees and gowns around her. If that is not enough to add oomph to the red carpet, the white brooch on her coat introduced a feminine touch, perfect for being a conversation-starter. The makeup was minimal, so that it does not take the attention away from the outfit. She tied her hair up in a neat bun.
What You Can Do
Nothing like a black tuxedo! And the women of today are mastering this avatar much like the gentlemen and Mrunal stands testimony to that. You can add your own personality to it by exploring different materials and playing with the finer details. Go for a velvet tuxedo coat of neural colours like white, brown, beige, or maroon and match the buttons of your white shirt with that of the coat. The shirt can be either white or black to complete the colour of the coat. Let the bow be of the same colour of your coat or, if you’re in the mood to add some drama, opt for one of a complementary hue.

3. Kriti Sanon
The diva of the moment, having won an award for the Best Actress of the Year, literally set the stage on fire with her bright red velvet gown with a thigh-high slit and a plunging neckline. The dress completed her silhouette to the T and brought definition to her neckline and the curves. She balanced the colour and style of the outfit with a delicate silver neckpiece and a no-makeup look. She let her stresses flow down her shoulders in soft curls.
What You Can Do
Gowns are one of the ultimate go-to ensembles to achieve that aura of a fashionista. And their versatile styles, cuts, and fits ensure that there is something for everyone, irrespective of the body type. Zero in on a colour of your choice and rock the occasion in it. For a light coloured gown, go all out with your makeup and tone it down according to its brightness. As for your hair, you can keep it poker straight, or go for some curls, or tie it up into a messy bun.
4. Kiara Advani
Kiara flaunted a fiery orange, multi-layered princess gown with a slide slit. The ensemble was no less than breathtaking for its unique colour and how it shone bright on the diva. What stood out about the gown was its extraordinary fish-cut neckline. The dress fit her like a second skin. She let her gown do all the talking by keeping her makeup and hair style simple. While her makeup was soft with her glossy lips being the highlight, she wore her hair down with a centre partition.
What You Can Do
Have fun choosing the colour of your gown. Opt for a chatakdaar colour if that suits the occasion you’re planning to wear it to or decide on a toned down hue. Your makeup will be determined by the colour of your dress and the occasion. For a neutral coloured dress, experiment with a bright lip colour or dramatic eyes. In case a bright colour is more your style, keep the makeup to the minimum to avoid going overboard with the overall look. For the hair, wear it down straight or in curls, or put it up together in a tight or messy bun.

5. Malaika Arora
The fitness enthusiast let her hourglass silhouette speak for itself in a body hugging yellow sequin dress. It had a plunging neckline that did justice to her own neckline. The asymmetrical pleats at the front set the dress apart from the rest. She went for a dramatic winged eyeliner, kohl-lined eyes, and nude lips. A long necklace sat pretty on her neck and a stylish ring on her fingers, and she opted for a clutch bag to finish the look. Her tight high ponytail added definition to her chiselled jawline.
What You Can Do
A pleated dress and an asymmetrical one at that is just what you need for those fashionista vibes. Experiment with colours that suit your personality. Since your dress is dramatic enough, refrain from adding further drama through your makeup or hairdo. Stick to a basic, no-makeup look and the same goes for your hair too. Keep your tresses flowing down and sashay down in style wherever you are.
