PeepingSpecial 2018 Half Yearly Report: Priyanka to Deepika, women who scored brownie points on red carpet


The first half of 2018 just jumped out of the window. The truth be told, we were so busy rejoicing all the sartorial highs this year had to offer that here we are, 6 months later, with a bag full of looks from all the red carpet events. So, sit back and relax, there's a lot of oomph, style and confidence packed in here!

deepika padukone

Deepika Padukone has been ruling the films and the sartorial diaries. Her confidence and style statements have been on fleek all year round with her all-glam appearances at several events like the Times 100 Gala, GQ Style Awards and our favorite being, The Cannes Film Festival.

Deepee attended the Times 100 Most Influential People Gala in New York, where she dazzled in an ivory Anamika Khanna saree. The intricate work and bold glam, oof...we're at loss of words here!

Deepika attended The Cannes Film Festival, which gave us looks to thrive on. While the sheath white Zuhair Murad gown was all feminine and elegant, the hot-pink Ashi Studio dress was all thrill spunk and fun. 

To think of it, the year is only half-way there. We can't wait for all the surprises the Padmavat actress and stylist Shaleena Nathani have to offer!

Till then, Hail the Queen!

priyanka chopra

Priyanka Chopra's sartorial files have been over-pouring since the actress has step foot in New York. Be it monochrome or retro, be it bohemian or good-ol saree, from wearing pajamas to sporting a swimsuit, the Quantico actress has done it all.

Peecee graced a Ralph Lauren ensemble for the Met Gala where the theme was 'Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination', and rightly so, she nailed it. Priyanka’s outfit gave a high priestess vibe and reminded us of medieval times, especially with the dramatic golden jeweled hood. The look was appreciated so much that she got listed amongst the best dressed at the prestigious event.

While the Met was all grace and beauty, her look at the Grammy's was laidback, uber cool and vixen bold. The wine pout, wild hair and lacey bralette, needless to say, is totally bada**!

Love, Love, LOVE!

Alia Bhatt

Bollywood's pint-sizedd fireball, Alia Bhatt has proved time and again, that her sartorial game is hard rock. Be it the casual chic , movie promotions or the glam red-carpets, Ms. Bhatt's style has been on fleek.

We love the ruffled Monsoori gorn that Alia graced the Filmfare carpet with. Styled by Ami Patel, side parted hair and minimum glam made the look dreamier than it could possibly be. Living the fairytale, are we?

For the GQ Awards night, the Raazi actress sported a Nedret Taciroglu ensemble which was feminine yet badass. The plunged neckline, pulled back hair and earthy makeup made for the best looks we've graciously experienced.

Namaslay Princess!

Kangana Ranaut

Kangana is known for her no-bull attitude, well her sartorial files tell us the same tale. She's an inspiring individual, a bosslady and all in all, a very confident woman. Looks like, we need a lot of learning to do!

Kangs pulled out the retro at the Cannes Film Festival that grabbed everyone attention. She sported an all-black Sabyasachi saree with a silver choker and a 70's hairdo looking like a proper yesteryear's diva. Stylist Ami Patel did a fab job yet again. Ah, you have our heart!

If that look wasn't perfection, Kangana brought spice to the ball with a metallic Nedret Taciroglu onesie. With the wild curls, smoky eyes and the sassy confidence, the Queen actress took us to another era all together.

Rock 'n' Roll, baby!

Shilpa Shetty

Shilpa Shetty has been defining and redefining fashion goals since decades. The actress has been always applauded for sartorial experiments and flawless style statements. Be it a saree or a backless gown, she's always carried it like a second skin.

Shilpa donned this mangnificient Amit Aggarwal saree for the the Global Icon Award. Styled by Mohit Rai, the actress looked ethereal in this green number.

For HT Style Awards, Shilpa sported a gray Reem Acra number, which looked all bit, bold and beautiful.

So Shilpa, when can we start with the fashion 101?

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan

Aishwarya's looks from the Cannes have been one of the most trending topics amongst the fashion police since a couple of years now. With all the millennial actresses walking at the prestigious event, the Bachchan Bahu upped her game too.

This year, Aishwarya donned an ethereal Michael Sinco number, which was all parts unreal. Styled by Aastha Sharma, the dreamy bodycon ensemble had intricate designs of a butterfly, a couture number from the designers collection. Exquisite would be putting it mildly.

Where them heart-eyed emojis at?

Sonam Kapoor

Bollywood's fashionista, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja  has crossed all sartorial boundaries in the recent past. From her Wedding, to promotions to the Cannes , the actress has outdone her own looks time and again.

The, now, Mrs. Ahuja graced the Cannes red carpet with this dreamy Vera Wang outfit that had us mesmerized. The Veere Di Wedding actress stole our breath with this lovely number that spoke summer and warmth. Minimal glam and Chopard jewelry fit just right with this look. Looks like Sister and Stylist Rhea Kapoor deserves a feather for this one!

Adopt us, NOW!

Parineeti Chopra

Although she made horrendous sartorial mistakes in the past, it's right to say that Parineeti Chopra is learning her lessons. Post the weight loss and makeover, Parineeti has been experimenting with fashion and the fashion police is impressed.

At the Filmfare Awards, Pari donned a Kutja Meri creation that was so dreamy that we could see the star, quite literally! The fine jewelry and neat hair let the outfit do all the talking.

Glitz and Glam and Gorgeous!

Mahira Khan

Mahira Khan has grabbed some serious attention with her sartorial statements in the past months. Her outfits have grabbed eyeballs and applauds, be it a casual outing, vacation or an awards night.

Mahira's look at the UK Asian Film Festival in London has to be one of her most appreciated looks till date. The actress sported a striped Dhruv Kapoor pant-suit combo with a black overcoat, that made her look like the fiery bosslady she is! Stylist Maneka Harisinghani took the evergreen stripes statement to another level.

She also graced this slique and sexy black Alberta Ferretti number, and boy we saw gazzilion jaws drop!

We have one question Mahira, how do you always get it right?

Diana Penty

Diana Penty has always been underestimated when it comes to fashion. Her fashion game has always been a safe play, but the wild #ootd's have never gone wrong either.

Just recently at the IIFA 2018, Diana sported this Aisha Ramadan ensemble that was exquisite in all its glory. Styled by Maneka Harisinghani, the Parmanu actress looked like a vision at the red carpet.
