Best of 2016 | Top Bollywood Red Carpet Looks

2016 saw some of the best red carpet moments and incredible looks sported by Bollywood's leading ladies. Right from Priyanka Chopra's most Googled outfit to Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's head turning vintage look at Cannes, we've got many reasons to laud our gorgeous female actors for their sartorial choices. And of course, full credit goes to their personal stylists and designers as well. Here's a round up of the best Bollywood red carpet looks from 2016. Is your favourite on the list?

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan
Where? Cannes 2016
Wearing - Elie Saab
The queen of hearts wowed us with her effortless glam look at the Cannes earlier this year. While her 'lilac lips' stole the show during a later outing, it was this look that won several hearts. We absolutely swear by the stunning combination of a champagne gold outfit with deep wine lips. 

Anushka Sharma
Where? Lux Golden Rose Awards 2016
Wearing - Shehlaa Khan
The actress made few appearances on the red carpet this year. But, we loved how charming she looked in this Shehlaa Khan number at an award function last month. That thigh-high slit looks hot and she carried off this look quite well. 

Deepika Padukone
Where? IIFA 2016 and MTV EMAs 2016
Wearing - Picture One: Anamika Khanna
Picture Two: Prabal Gurung
Picture Three: Monisha Jaising
Every time Deepika makes a red carpet appearance, we can spot fans on social media waiting with bated breath! Over time, the actress has wowed us with multiple best dressed looks and this year too, Deepika Padukone slayed it in style! Some of our favourites include the red hot look in Prabal Gurung at the IIFA press conference, the glam diva look in Anamika Khanna at the IIFA Awards and of course, the much talked about custom Monisha Jaising look at her MTV EMAs debut. We thought the latter was quite a risky, edgy look to pull off and DP did complete justice.

Jacqueline Fernandez
Where? TOIFA 2016
Wearing - Rami Kadi
Jacqueline is quite a style diva and we all swear by her 'Behind The Scene' videos on Snapchat. Among her popular looks this year, this one definitely stood out. The actress looked straight out of a princess tale, and rocked this Rami Kadi gown like with minimal make up and accessories.

Kareena Kapoor Khan
Where? Lux Golden Rose Awards 2016 and TOIFA 2016
Wearing - Picture One: Gauri and Nainika
Picture Two: Monisha Jaising
From her boss girl avatar in Ki & Ka to slaying it as the most stylish mommy to-be throughout her pregnancy, Kareena Kapoor Khan has been in the news for all the right reasons. While she kicked off the year with a svelte avatar at TOIFA, she looked her best in the second half of 2016. The then glowing mommy to-be rocked her baby bump in beautiful outfits, and one of our favourites has got to be his Gauri and Nainika number at an award function last month.

Katrina Kaif
Where? Lux Golden Rose Awards 2016 and Vogue Beauty Awards 2016
Wearing - Picture One: Ziad Nakad
Picture Two: Romona Keveza
She clearly rocked with her washboard abs in Kala Chashma, and super hot avatar in Baar Baar Dekho. Off screen too, Katrina Kaif got her A-game on and rocked some stylish looks on the red carpet. At an event earlier this year, she stunned in a Romona Keveza outfit, that complimented her hot bod. We equally loved her elegant appearance at an award function in November, where she picked an emerald green Ziad Nakad dress. She opted for a natural, minimal make up look for both the appearances, and this was pretty much her pick for almost all looks in 2016.

Priyanka Chopra
Where? Oscars 2016 and Emmys 2016
Wearing - Picture One: Zuhair Murad
Picture Two: Jason Wu
Clearly, one of 2016's best dressed moments! Our very own desi girl gone global Priyanka Chopra made everyone proud, when she was invited to present an Oscar earlier this year. She looked every inch a stunner in this much talked about Zuhair Murad outfit, which was announced as the 'most googled outfit' earlier this month. Her global domination continued, as she made a gorgeous appearance at the Emmys, looking ethereal in a red Jason Wu outfit. 

Sonakshi Sinha
Where? IIFA 2016
Wearing - Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla
While Sonakshi hasn't made too many red carpet appearances, we loved some of her street style and film promotion looks (especially for Force 2). But, we particularly loved this adorable outing in Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla at an award function in Madrid, where our very own Sona looked like a new-age princess, minus the long gown. 

Sonam Kapoor
Where? Cannes 2016  (Red Carpet, AmFar and Chopard party)
Wearing - All pics: Ralph and Russo
No doubt Sonam is one of the best dressed female actors of Bollywood, and she has always managed to get her A-game on to the red carpet with her impeccable choices. This year, Sonam turns several heads with her effortlessly stylish looks at Cannes. Interestingly, all our favourite looks had the actress wearing Ralph & Russo. From a stunning sari inspired gown to a princess moment with jhumkas and going vintage glam in black; Sonam killed it and proved why she will always be our favourite fashion diva!

  1. I do love most of these looks by the stars, more so Ash's Champagne gold gown is too good.
