Filmfare ME: Deepika, Sophie sizzle in black trails; Fawad, Karan suit up


What a starry night it was! The launch of Filmfare very first Middle East Edition saw the likes of many A-listers including Bollywood biggies like Deepika Padukone, Sophie Choudry, Karan Johar and Fawad Khan. brings to you a detailed fashion insight from this glorious night in Dubai and the best-dressed celebs on the red carpet!


Deepika Padukone, the cover girl of Filmfare's latest magazine edition in the Middle East, was all smiles throughout the night. The Padmaavat actress looked ravishing in an Amit Aggarwal ensemble with hair combed back in a messy ponytail and winged eyeliner.

The diamond-studded dangler earrings just did the trick for her. We're sure the actress was applauded for both this look, the launch and her performance in her previous film, Padmaavat.



Sophie Choudry was one of the others who grabbed some serious eyeballs last night on the red carpet. The actress who's known to be a fitness freak flaunted her super-toned body in a skin-hugging sequined Swapnil Shinde gown which she wore like a second skin.

The stunning number had soft sequin details that curved around her so well that we are still in awe. Soft smoky eyes, rosy glow, glam waves and delicate heels made sure that the shimmery gown did all the talking.

Ahh, we love what we're seeing!


Karan Johar, who's been making a lot of jacket statements in the recent-past, opted for a bespoke suit by Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla for the evening. What was intriguing about the suit was the embroidered skull detail on his coat. Stylist Nikita Jaisinghani's eye to detail has us bowing down once again. The Gucci shoes he donned was a cherry on top for his statement look.

It's haute in here!


We can't get over Fawad's look for the night. The actor looked dapper in a classic three-piece suit for the big night in Dubai. He paired the neat cut suit with a detailed tie, which was just the element needed to make it stand out.

Less is more and Fawad shows us how!


Among the others, the red carpet also saw telly stars Debina Bonnerjee and Gurmeet Choudhary gracing the night. While Gurmeet opted for a pleated dinner jacket, Debina's thigh-high slit gown did wonders for her.
