GQ Men of the Year Awards: The good, bad and wacky from the red carpet
It was the night of high fashion as the swish set of Mumbai came together to celebrate the best in men’s style. We’re talking about GQ Men Of The Year Awards, which was held in the city last evening.
The event saw an impressive turnout of Bollywood celebrities that included Amitabh Bachchan, Ranveer Singh, Saif Ali Khan, Kangana Ranaut, Tiger Shroff, Radhika Apte, Diana Penty and Rahul Khanna among others.
So whose look was a hit on the red carpet and whose was a miss? Here’s a complete lowdown.
The superstar, who was adjudged the Legend Of The Year, looked graceful as ever in a grey bandhgala. Big B never goes out of style!
Bringing some drama was Ranaut in a voluminous Ulyana Sergeenko dress teamed with a berry lip and winged eyeliner. It certainly wasn’t her best look but she worked that dress. She didn’t bag the Woman of the Year award for nothing!
Saif Ali Khan
The Nawab of Pataudi, who won the Most Stylish Celebrity Award, went the formal route – read: a three-piece cream suit, a pinstripe shirt and Oxfords.
Move over gowns and dresses. Apte, who picked up the award for Excellence in Acting, chose a blue Swapnil Shinde pantsuit for the occasion. A sleek ponytail and nude lips completed the look. Such a refreshing change from all the OTT looks on the red carpet!
The younger Shroff played it safe in a black blazer paired with a white shirt. The Heropanti actor picked up the award for the Youth Icon.
In a shimmery golden gown, red lips and sideswept hair, Patani looked gorgeous. Our only gripe – the heels.
The more we look at his outings, the more we’re convinced that Khanna can do no wrong sartorially. The actor looked dishy as always in a black Dolce & Gabbana suit.
The actor looked suave in a charcoal suit and teamed it with a bow-tie. The highlight of his look was his shoes.
The Mohenjo Daro actress amped up her fashion game in a white Temperley London backless gown. Vision in white? Of course.
A ruffled gown is a predictable choice for the red carpet. But you have to give points to D’Souza for looking stunning in the Gaurav Gupta creation.
Don’t you hate it when a bad outfit happens to a good-looking girl? That was the case with the Cocktail actress who wore a shoulder-baring Cushnie Et Ochs jumpsuit.
We guess the Gangs Of Wasseypur actress was aiming for drama with this black number.
Chawla chose a red Dolly J pantsuit for the evening, finishing the look with minimal make-up. While the look worked in theory, it didn’t translate as well on the red carpet.
Gupta opted for a golden Monisha Jaising dress for the event, teaming it with golden pumps. It was a look that didn’t quite make the cut for us.
Why are we not surprised to see Ranveer Singh in here? Singh, who won the Actor of the Year Award, chose a DSquared2 tuxedo for his appearance. What’s wacky about that, you ask. Take a look for yourself. Having said that, Singh owned the look…and the red carpet. Easily, the most striking look of the evening.
And here are a few other celebrities' looks from the evening:
