IIFA AWARDS 2015
I think, hands down, the most awaited awards after Filmare are the IIFA, the International Indian Film Academy awards, presented annually by the International Indian Film Academy to honour both artistic and technical excellence of professionals in Bollywood. Instituted in 2000, the ceremony is held every year in different countries around the world. This year the awards took place in Putu Indoor Stadium, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on 7th June, 2015.
The fashion line for IIFA was designed by none other than Masaba Gupta. This announcement was very much predictable given her friendly and familial relations with the Colors CEO, Raj Nayak. The collection was inspired from the trophy. The Fashion Extravaganza show was opened by Aditi Rao Hydari wearing a black long dress cut out from both the sides of the waist with a sequined drape over the shoulder. The show stoppers, Huma Qureshi and Malaika Arora Khan looked stunning wearing the black and gold combinations.
The red carpet at the awards night saw some biggies of the tinsel town descend.
Deepika Padukone, clutching the woman of the year award, wore dazzling bejwelled sari by sabyasachi mukherjee . Talking to the media Deepika confessed that she feels the most comfortable in a sari while on a red carpet and old worn out pyjamas while chilling at home. Well, sari or gown, we totally love in whatever attire she chooses to wear.
Jacqueline Fernandez looked like a warrior princess as she wore a silver embroidered net cape with and embroidered blouse and a white leheng, a piece from the latest collection of Anamika Khanna. The actress set the stage ablaze as she performed during the event even after undergoing a leg injury just a day before the main even while rehearsing for her performance.
Sonakshi Sinha chose to rock the red carpet wearing a black sophisticated Anamika Khanna number styled by her friend Sakshi Mehra, making her debut for the singing talent that she possesses.
