Times of India Film Awards (cont'd)

Chitrangada arrived in a gorgeous gold embellished white Naeem Khan. The gown didn't need any accessory and Chitrangada did just that by keeping the look minimalistic. Beautiful!

The main event of TOIFA had Aditi Rao Hydari in a Gauri & Nainika gown. While the dress was extravagantly beautifully, but the gloss affect of the dress, unfortunately, felt tacky. She looked nice neck up though.

Mughda chose a shimmery Rajat Tangri for the event. I'm not a fan of the dress itself, but she does managed to look nice in it. The french twist do also made her look well put together .

Abhishek opted for a navy Nehru style jacket. Love the white and red details of the jacket!
Wife, Aishwarya, went for an anarkali by Sabyasachi. I'm not one bit a fan of the anarkali and I do wish she would pull up her hair in a ponytail or loose bun.

Shah Rukh and Gauri went for the matching color look, both in red tones. While Gauri kept it simple and classy in Tarun Tahiliani saree, SRK surprised (not in a good way) in a maroon and black tuxedo. Yikes!

Anushka kept it classy and chic as the host of TOIFA in a Dior suit with a touch of color via the bright red lips.

Ileana was all smiles in a Dolce & Gabbana dress. I'm not quite a fan of the dress itself but she does wear it wll. Love the hair and make-up.

Priyanka won the Best Actress for Barfi at the ceremony and my vote for Best Dressed for tis Arpan Vohra outfit. The black and gold dress was stunning as it is, but dressing it up with the perfect make-up, side swept curls and vintage gold Viange earring made the look all the more exquisite. Wow!

Nargis went for Komal Sood dress, showing off her gams.While I love the bright pink lips, I do feel there;s an overload of bronzer on her (but that might just be the unforgiving camera flashes). She looks nice overall.

Here's a look that could easily be overwhelming, yet Neha managed to pull off this Sabyasachi couture beautifully. Keeping her hair and make-up classic and dressing it up with the simple earrings was a really good call.

Ranbir went classic in a three piece suit as the host for TOIFA. He, as always, looked good!

Times of India Film Awards 2013

Aditi looked positively cute in a Siddhartha Tyler number attending TOIFA in Vancouver. While the 'Dior New Look' silhouette works perfectly for her petite figure, what I adore more was her braided updo, and keeping the jewelry to a minimal was a good call.

Chitrangada glamed it up in a black and white Gauri & Nainika. A beautiful dress, a beautiful girl, classic color and red lips, can't go wrong. I do wish she skipped the hoop earrings though.

Anushka kept it simple in a greed python dress by Gucci. Its a nice dress, but the look was missing out on something. Either a bolder make-up or a statement jewelry would've made up for it.

Priyanka opted for a blush Dolce & Gabbana lace gown. She added a brooch to the gown and colored her lips with berry color. While its a nice look, can't help thinking its a look we've seen her too often in.

Neha Dhupia hosted the music extravaganza night at TOIFA wearing an Anamika Khanna saree. I love the saree, and love it even more on her but I do feel the earrings were unnecessary. Must say though, it's a hard look to pull off but she managed to do it beautifully.
