As 2016 draws to its splendid end, we sit down to appreciate the hard work of our B-town dwellers who tirelessly work towards beholding the name of fashion high and mighty. Each year, our divas and dudes up the style quotient. While some stick to the timeless elegance demeanour, others unabashedly push the boundary with their outlandish choices. To drape these fashion icons in the finest of silk, BollyCurry brings to you some of the best dressed stars of 2016.
has been riding high on the success of her recent blockbusters, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil
. We saw the best of Ms. Sharma during the promotions rounds. While her appearances were a heady mix of both Indian and western wear, we particularly loved her appearance at the Lux Golden Rose Awards
. Oozing charm and confidence in her stature, Sharma stole the show in this Indo-Western Shehlaa creation.
The glamour queen was back to reclaim her throne. After a series of not so glamourous roles, Rai Bachcan was seen essaying a femme fatale in Karan Johar
's Ae Dil Hai Mushkil
. While she looked scintillating on-screen in the Manish Malhotra
dresses, Rai Bachchan's personal off-screen style gravitated towards long kurtas, lehengas
and heavily embroidered suits. She schooled us to perfect our ethnic Indian wear with some stunning appearances but her most talked about look this year was the Rami Kadi off-shoulder gown with a lavender lip at the Cannes Film Festival. While we're still over the fence about the lip colour it surely was a defining fashion moment of 2016.
The Begum has been giving us major pregnancy goals. Setting the maternity fashion bar high, Kapoor Khan wowed everyone with her stunning looks. While most of her off duty looks were easy breezy, comfortable dresses, Kapoor Khan didn't shy away from the glamorous gowns at the red carpet to flaunt her baby bump. We particularly loved the her Gauri and Nainika cape dress at the Lux Golden Rose Award
s and the empire-waist Gauri and Nainika gown at Manish Malhotra
's birthday celebration. We wish good luck to the soon to be mommy, who has set an example for all the expecting mothers.
Every fashion list is incomplete without her mention. She is known for her stunning style, refreshingly unique combination and owning every look. Who else can wear an ankle length saree with leather oxfords and look great? It is a herculean task to zero in one's best appearance when it is Kapoor in question. Though Kapoor's most memorable appearances have featured custom couture by Ralph and Russo, the dramatic gowns at the Cannes Film festival were absolute winners.
Queen DP's style game has been on point this year. Her sartorial choices kept us wowed, be it her high slit gowns, pant suits or traditional wear, Padukone made sure to look alluring and indefinitely ethereal. The IIFA weekend was surely a treat with some of the most stunning appearance by the leggy lass. Flaunting the essence of Spanish culture in some towering length was the vivacious Padukone who graced the green carpet in an ivory Sabyasachi creation. With some great styling, Queen DP totally struck the right fashion notes with this one.
If there is one man who has truly redefined fashion in the industry, it is none other than Mr. Singh. Where the men in general are slaves to the blacks and whites of the worldly temptation that fashion is, Ranveer Singh
has, with no fear of judgment, broken free of the realms of conventional fashion and mastered a unique sense of style. Singh unleashed his inner diva during the promotion rounds of Befikre
. While some might not be a fan of his quirky style, he sure is wisp of fresh air in the monotonous world of suits and kurtas
, as seen here in a DSquared2 tuxedo suit.
In a world, where our actors are usually associated with their roles and characters, fashion is liberating and unique. It allows for actors to break away from their on-screen personas and shine in their individuality and personal style. These were some of the stars who have mastered their own style and perfected each appearance with ease and confidence. Until next time, we leave you in the galore of fashion and hope the B-Town stars inspire you with their marvels. Do let know who you think was the best dressed star in 2016
