IIFA Rocks 2013

Madhuri flaunted her bright smile at the IIFA Rocks green carpet wearing a mint green and dull pink Manish Malhotra lengha. I'm not quite a fan of the outfit, personally. As nice as she looked, the lengha felt too 90s to me. Much prefer her look in Masaba in Jhalak Dikh Laja

Jhanvi and Khushi Kapoor (Sridevi's daughters), who are quickly gaining the limelight, was seen at the green carpet as well. Khushi looked cute in a light purple baby doll dress while Jhanvi slightly disappointed (at least me) with a princess-y off shoulder beige dress. She has given much more stylish appearance, thus the expectation.

Folowing her daughters was Mommy fabulous in a gorgeous teal gown. She styled it with maroon clutch and picked up the color via her maroon lips. Only thing, I wish she skipped the hazel lenses, it was really unnecessary. (Being to picky??)


Abhishek opted for white shirt, faded denims and pink jacket for the event. Love the fact that he doesn't shy away from colors, but I do wish he would have picked different pair of bottoms. This was a Not Quite for me.

Just gotta say,what the hell happened with you Shahid? That shirt just made my eyed sore! Here's hoping he makes a much better comeback for the main event.

A scruffed up and thinner Shah Rukh was in an all black suit fro the event. Love the beard look on him (he's finally not attempting too hard too look young) and the suit was definitely a huge relieve after his last award show red carpet appearance

Shah Rukh Khan

Arjun Kapoor went for a black bandhgala suit. He, as usual looks good.

Wearing an almost identical look to Arjun Kapoor's was Zayed Khan. He looked good.

Deepika brought drama to the green carpet via her Naeem Khan outfit, and kudos to her for going for something experimental against the predictable dress or gowns. The beauty styled is with her signature puffed up ponytail and dark purple lips.

A tired looking Sonu Nigam was in a dark grey suit with light grey piping details. He looked okay but I do have a gripe about the tie.

Huma was gorgeous in a black and bronze SVA by Sonam and Paras Modi outfit, which she styled with a loose braided do, danglers and dark red lips. This look might be overwhelming on some, but she managed to carry it off elegance.

Jacqueline was all smiles in a strapless red Dolce & Gabbana number. She teamed the dress with black Loubs and gold Valliyan by Nitya Arora cuffs on both wrists. Love the look!

Lisa was in a leopard print maxi for the event. While she looked nice, the look felt a bit too safe.

Neha Dhupia was in black for the event. But this black was anything but boring. The vintage-looking Atsu gown, combined with the striking white collar and embellished belt looked beautiful. Topped with smokey eyes and an updo, this was perfection!

Sophie went for an elegant Rocky S gown. She finished it out with an updo and diamond bracelet and danglers. She looked gorgeous! But, anyone else felt the striking resemblance between this dress and the Naeem Khan worn by Deepika?

Sonu Sood went for something a little different from the classic suit and it worked. He looked good. Wife, Sonali, matched him in a white and black dress. The dress could use a little more punch via a different do or bolder makeup perhaps.

Aftab went semi formal in a white shirt paired with grey jacket. The shirt could use another button up. Fiancé Nin Dusanj looked beautiful in a strapless white dress paired with diamond danglers and red lips.

Richa Chadda got everyone's jaw dropping, not for the right reasons. The usually elegant Richa picked a beige and red Tarun Tahiliani anarkali for the event. The red embroidery was way too jarring for the eye. Her maang tikka didn't help redeem the look either, I'm afraid. This was a bid NO!

Parineeti tried a different look in Falguni & Shane Peacock mini and her hair pulled back with a headband. The dress could definitely use the extra length in my opinion. This look seemed too forced on her.

Ayushmann stayed in his comfort zone with his black tux and bow tie. Just wished to see a little more color from the quirky actor.

Ayushmann Khurranna

Ayushmann's wife, Tahira also dressed in black, wearing a Notte by Marchesa gown. She looked nice, but wished she went for a brighter lip color.

Evelyn definitely didn't go unnoticed on the green carpet, strutting in a bright pink Wendell Rodricks gown. While the design itself was pretty simple, the color definitely added to the look. She looked nice

This might have been the first time I'm disappointed with Diya's red carpet look. The usually impeccable actress chose a rather boring LBD, which did nothing for her. Hope she revives herself at the main event.

Diya Mirza

Ayesha Depala's design might have been interesting, but it just looked off on Minissha. The dress just wasn't meant for her petite figure.

Gauhar picked a tricky dress to pull off, but managed to do so quite beautifully. I only have a minor gripe about the satin teal not being properly steamed. Other than that, she looked fantastic.
