The Red Carpet at the Filmfare Awards

India hosted its own Filmfare awards a week after the Oscars. While Bollywood stars are definitely paying attention to their choices these days and a plethora of designer wear is seen on the red carpet, there are still some "What were they thinking?" moments.

Best Dressed:

Aishwarya Rai looked totally resplendent in a Sabyasachi saree. She tied her hair in a bun to go with her traditional look. This was Aishwarya at her best. Indian look always suits her.

Kareena chose to wear a saree as well. No surprises on the designer. Both sisters favour Manish Malhotra. The dramatic hair and makeup went very well with the event and Kareena looked happy to be with her boy candy Saif.

In a first for Bollywood industry, Chanel approached Sonam Kapoor to wear their one-shouldered gown on the red carpet. Sonam kept it simple accessorising it with a black Bottega knot clutch, jewels in her hair and some dramatic makeup.

Katrina Kaif looked comfortable and beautiful in this orange number. Plus she looked fresher and slimmer since her last outing. Her new hair cut with bangs makes her look younger.

Priyanka Chopra looked gorgeous in an Alberta Ferretti gown. For once PC changed her hairstyle and makeup and gets full marks.

Tabu wore the color of the season and looked beautiful in a Gavin Miguel gown. She kept the focus on the gown with minimal accessories.

Worst Dressed:

Sushmita Sen also wore a Gauri and Nainika gown. This former Ms. Universe is so beautiful that she can carry pretty much anything but it wasn't this gown. The color was too dark and dreary.

Genelia D'Souza is a cute new face in bollywood. But this Just Cavalli gown did not do her justice. The dress is too unforgiving.

What happened to my resident fashionista Priety Zinta. This Gauri and Nainika gown makes her look hip heavy. The lace, the embroidery, the mermaid fish tail and the netting in the bottom - there is just too much going on in this gown and not all good.

Bipasha Basu looked beautiful and sexy as usual but her OTT sexiness is totally unncessary most of the time. Plus I don't like the trend of velvet blouses. This Sabyasachi saree is beautiful and her look would have been perfect with a better blouse.

Asin got her first filmfare award as a promising debut this year and chose to wear a DVF gown. Loved the color but the way she draped it and her hair and makeup left lot of room for improvement. She did pair is with a yummy silver Bottega clutch.

Hey Joules, loved the round up - you are our very own Ryan Seacrest!

And horrors, what's with those disgusting seats? Basically a four legged rental with a sheet wrapped around it! To think that thousands of bucks rested on those.
