Bollywood red carpet saw actresses moving out of their comfort zone and opting for gowns with risque slits and cut-work detailing. While the likes of Sonam Kapoor flirted with off-shoulder numbers from Proenza Schouler and Zimmermann, Deepika Padukone toyed with military chic in an olive green Monisha Jaising skirt and a sequinned bustier. Quantico beauty Priyanka Chopra slayed it in statement-making dresses from Prabal Gurung and Sachin and Babi while Alia Bhatt balanced her polished red carpet style with denim-heavy street looks. It was the year of clashing maximal with minimal, sublime with ridiculous and understated with edgy! Mix and match seemed to be the mantra for most B-Town stylists…
