When Bollywood stars descended at Tampa Bay in Florida for the IIFA awards this past week, they swept fans and fashion-watchers off their feet with their designer outfits. While some sported a completely western look others went in for an East-West blend. Deepika Padukone stole the show in a stunning red Zuhair Murad gown embellished completely with lace work. Priyanka Chopra flaunted her curvy figure in a peach Monique Lhuillier creation, her smoky eyes and loose bun added to the effect. Kareena Kapoor made heads turn in a black Giorgio Armani skirt and white
top with her hair done in a smart top knot. Sridevi, though a generation ahead of the girls ruling the BO now, could easily be described the ‘showstopper’ dressed in a gorgeous all-black
Oscar de la Renta gown. Malaika Arora Khan chose to go ethnic in a Vikram Phadnis net gold sari well-accessorised with stone-studded earrings. Another actor who
preferred to go the Indian way was Kalki Koechlin who went in for a black, gold and red Sabyasachi Mukherjee creation. But her turban played the spoilsport.
