In June, Jugni Style spent 5 days wandering the streets of Toronto covering the biggest Bollywood event in Canada – IIFA. Checkout our favourite fashion and star moments from the IIFA weekend.
Chandelier earrings, large necklaces, gems and rubys were the statement looks on the carpet for jewellery. Our favourite was the purple and gold D&G necklace worn by Shilpa Shetty – a statement piece especially in her black D&G gown.
Designs by Neeta Lulla, Sabyasachi Malhotra, Manish Malhotra, Alexandar McQueen were worn by some of the top Bollywood divas during the two-day event. Our favourites included the lace Sabyasachi sari worn by Anushka Sharma and the polka dot Lanvin dress and the nude chain-detailed Catherine Malandrino gown worn by Neha Dhupia.
It was an unbelievable experience covering the two-day award show, and we realized when asking the question “Who are you wearing”, we were opening ourselves up to responses like, “I don’t know, just something out of my closet,” from stars like Asha Bosle and Bobby Deol. We also asked celebrity hairdresser Mark Anthony who did his hair, and he had a good chuckle. His hair is amazing, isn’t it?
After spending hours each day covering the event, we became really good friends with a lot of international media, and especially BBC’s cheeky and stylish host. Watch out for an interview with BBC’s very own Tommy Sandhu in the new year.
