Who wore it better?


With the New Year comes new reasons for us to celebrate the best in the Film Industry. The kings and queens of Bollywood were seen coming together to raise their glasses to celebrate their work at the 62nd Jio Filmfare Awards held on January 14th in Mumbai.

Aamir Khan won the Best Actor Award for his outstanding work in ‘Dangal’ and Alia Bhatt won for her intense role as  Kumari Pinky in ‘Udta Punjab’.

Celebrities looked their utmost best in trailing gowns that sparkled in the spotlight. Jacqueline Fernandes wore a stunning gown from Ali Younes Couture which reminded some of us here at Dressire of a Ziad Nakad gown that Katrina Kaif wore at the Lux Golden Rose Awards held in December, 2016.

Both wore off shoulder sequined gowns, Katrina paired hers with a minimalistic hair and makeup look with soft curls  where as Jacqueline kept her hair left down with a slightly sleek off-centre parting and completed her look with a heavy eyeliner and brown lips.

Jackie’s outfit was fitted which allowed her to flaunt her curves very well with a beautifully embroidered netted sleeve, leaving the other arm bare. Kat’s gown flared out from her waistline with both the netted sleeves embroidered.

Who do you think wore the sequined off shoulder gowns better?
