There’s nothing quite like an awards show red carpet to make us temporarily forget about whatever’s going on in the real world. And like in the past years, Hindustan Times India’s Most Stylish Awards at Yash Raj Studios in Mumbai on Wednesday delivered on all the things that we love about our favourite celebrities, who have so much style that they can convince us that over-the-top sleeves are actually the coolest thing ever (We’re looking at you, Sonam Kapoor).
And did anyone else notice the standout choker and stud earrings that accompanied Deepika Padukone’s glorious fuchsia pink and golden sari. As if that was not enough, there was Shilpa Shetty, who rocked a thigh-high split gown. Just when we thought we couldn’t get any more divas on the red carpet, the sophisticated Sridevi brought it in (like always) with her dreamy, glittery jumpsuit.
Of course, we love ourselves a good red carpet and the 2018 edition of our style awards was a winner. We saw a variety of glamorous looks and styles and we have to admit, it was hard to choose just one winner. And as you scroll, you’ll find all the proof you need.

Some of us have been copying veteran actor Rekha’s elegant style forever, so naturally, we’re dying to copy this head-to-toe golden look of hers. She knew how to hold her bedazzling clutch so we could see the cluster of crystals. (HT Photo)
Actor Kriti Sanon was fringe-tastic in a yellow floor-length number from Deme By Gabriella, which was made for twirling. She chose Minerali Store earrings to round off her look. (HT Photo)
When is a black dress not just a black dress? When you are Vaani Kapoor. The actor just rocked her most daring carpet look yet with a see-through Redemption Fashion Brand dress. (HT Photo)
