Red Carpet Trends at Filmfare Awards

58th Filmfare Awards were held in Mumbai and the celebrities walked the red carpet in their best attire for this event. Actors Ranbir Kapoor & Vidya Balan won the top honors. ‘Borrow it Bindaas’ takes you through the celebrity fashion at the red carpet of Filmfare Awards and shows you how you can make the trends work for you!


This year though gowns dominated the fashion scene with veteran actors like Madhuri Dixit & Sridevi opting for a gown over a saree. An array of colors & styles were seen in gowns on the red carpet. From shimmer, cutwork, bright shades, sheer fabric to satin, there was plenty to be seen.  Gowns in neon color were the highlight of this year’s award season. 


Sarees,  Lehenga & Anarkali

Indian inspired style was seen in a very contemporary look. Traditional heavy jeweled look took a back seat while emphasis was given more to bigger earrings. Pastels were a clear favorite as celebrities like Dia Mirza, Aditi Rao Hydari & Minnisha Lamba were dressed in lighter hues. Delicate detailwork was limited to the hemlines and the pallu of a saree. 



Ways to make these red carpet trends work for you

Shimmer Effect : Shimmer fabric in a gown look good when the neckline is a halter or off the shoulder. Avoid heavy detail work as shimmer itself has a lot of glam quotient to it. One can also use shimmer in subtle manner by wearing a shimmer top over denims or highlighting your outfit with a shimmer clutch or shoe. Wear a glitter nail polish to jazz up any casual look.


Neons : Neon colors are huge this year but if want to incorporate this style in your daily wear try wearing neon jewelry like earrings or necklace over a white shirt. Pencil skirts in neon color works equally well with a top in muted shade. Neon belt, cuff, wallet or watch is a trendy style which you can wear to work or to a party.


Pastels : Plain pastel saree combined with a heavy embellished blouse is like a dream come true. Pastels in handbags, make-up and nail paint are best for daywear. Pearl jewelry is one of the ways to flaunt pastel in the most elegant manner.
