The Indian Sports Honours 2023 was held in Mumbai on 23 March 2023, and it was quite a starry night!
The red carpet was graced by Bollywood’s biggest names and sports personalities. And although it was a sporting event, B-town stars didn’t skimp on their fashion. While some celebrities nailed it, others could have done better. Scroll down to see the best and the not-so-good looks at the event:
Anushka Sharma & Virat Kohli
Mommy Sharma and Daddy Kohli definitely bagged the hottest couple award! After a long time, we finally saw the couple in their element, putting forth their best fashion game. Anushka looked like a dream in a bodycon purple gown from Toni Maticevski that came with off-shoulder sleeves and ruched detailing. Virat, on the other hand, effortlessly complemented his lady love in a three-piece black suit. #CoupleGoals for sure!
Deepika Padukone & Ranveer Singh
Even though we’re obsessed with Deepika Padukone’s Oscar looks, we missed seeing her in her favourite attire – a saree! Finally, the diva wore what she loves the most as she graced the red carpet in a black saree with a shiny gold border. With full sleeves and an open back, the blouse was the perfect mix of modest and modish. Ranveer twinned with his wife in a black suit.
Maheep Kapoor & Seema Khan
The fabulous Bollywood wives never disappoint! Maheep Kapoor and Seema Khan were the yin and yang on the red carpet. Maheep looked stunning in a shimmering black co-ord set featuring a blazer and matching shorts. She accessorised with sheer black stockings, matching heels, and a clutch. Seema, on the other hand, donned a white pantsuit over a black bralette. Also, I love the contrasting heels on her!
Sacred Games actress, Elnaaz Norouzi’s look could make anyone stop in their tracks. The diva wore a velvet black off-shoulder dress that came with a high-low hemline. The full-sleeve dress was embellished with rhinestones on the shoulder for added oomph. Elnaaz completed the look with strappy heels and a delicate diamond necklace.
Akansha Ranjan Kapoor
Akansha Ranjan Kapoor is known for her impeccable fashion sense, but the diva fell short this time. Although a sharp pantsuit can never go wrong, Akansha’s outfit was drenched in fur and shimmer, making it appear gaudy. Also, the shoulder pads and poor fit just aren’t it.
Urvashi Rautela‘s fairytale-like tulle gown just didn’t fit with the event’s overall vibe. The neutral colour blended in with Urvashi’s skin tone, making the entire ensemble a flop. Although the plunging neckline was attractive, the waist belt was unnecessary. This outfit could have worked in another colour for another event, but it was a dud for a sporting event.
Petition to bring back Neha Dhupia’s early 2000s style! This time, the actress let us down big time, especially given her fashion potential. Her satin grey saree would have looked better if paired with a stunning blouse. The plain grey sleeveless blouse did nothing to enhance the look. However, brownie points for the stunning bracelet!
The electric blue gown worn by Rhea Chakraborty was a lesson in how not to do the maximalism trend. The gown had a sheer bodice and was covered in a jumble of shimmer and patterns that looked too hotch-potch. While the colour was trendy, the outfit was lacking in design.
Thanks to award shows like these, I get my much-needed dose of fashion inspo!
