Life OK Screen Awards

Let's kick this fashion round-up with two B-town veterans. Madam Re - yay! - she swapped a festive pink kanjeevaram for her usual all-gold look. Huzzah! SRK didn't look bad either.
Madam J went pink too. She's proof that a gold quality silk sari will last season after season. This one in particular is at the very least four years old (here's the last outing, with a gold blouse). And check out those sparklers. A nice emerald pair would've been amazing.
Next up, a couple of ladies who really stepped it up - with varying degrees of success. Hats off to Kajol for being adventurous. Her personal style seems to be growing by leaps and bounds. It was risky going head-to-toe monochromatic. Unfortunately, the gamble didn't pay off with this Velveeta-orange color. Additionally, something's not right with the proportions here. She's a little too covered up. I feel like long sleeves + floor length could do with a tasteful slit in lieu of the ruffles, and perhaps a (gasp) non-mandarin collar or at the very least, some net detailing at the neckline?!
Huma, on the other hand, absolutely kills it in her floor length red number. No longer is she essaying the role of "Madhuri Dixit's sidekick". All the proportions are just right. Unlike Kajol, we haven't lost Huma in a sea of red fabric. I do wish she'd swap in a metallic sandal instead of being all matchy, but really that's a quibble as the sandal itself is plenty cute.
Deepika's styling was utterly lackluster. Never have I seen an Alexander McQueen look so. very. boring. Gold cuffs, or perhaps a gold belt accenting her waist, would've livened things up.
Chitra didn't fare much better. Honey, if you're going to wear Dior on the red carpet, then maybe consider not looking disheveled. Honestly.
As far as designers go, Manish Malhotra enjoyed some free publicity. Bips and Sophie looked smashing in their (respectively) anarkali and net sari. Both outfits incorporate velvet to up the lux factor. Lovely!
