From Alia Bhatt to Katrina Kaif and Shilpa Shetty and Disha Patani, the IIFA Awards 2017 at New York was stormed by the exquisite fashion statements by B-town actresses. Here is the compilation of the best of IIFA awards night dresses – from quirky casual dresses to elegant princess gowns.

The 18th edition of International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) Awards, which is always organised at exotic foreign locales with music medleys and high profile celebrity appearances, IIFA is a grandiose in itself. The celebration of awarding and honouring the best performances, performers and contributors to the Hindi cinema is the major highlight of IIFA, but the award ceremony has something beyond just cinema, it spreads its realms to – the best of Bollywood fashion, of course. The IIFA Green Carpet event is literally oozed with the display of fashion and individual style statements, bewildering the fashion fans with its panache. Here are some 5 best style statements from IIFA 2017.

Starting with number 5.

  1. Preity Zinta’s classic black gown:

Preity walked on the green carpet dressed up in her black lace-satin peplum gown by Gauri and Nainika, now we know it is old school and cliché, but cliché become cliché for a reason. Paired with statement diamond dangling earrings, smoky kohl eyes and nude makeup totally complimented her classy, elegant look, making Preity look pretty at the IIFA Green carpet.

  1. Disha Patani’s silver sheer dress

Disha Patani raised the temperature at Metlife Stadium as she arrived dressed in the beautiful silver sheer dress with just the right amount of glitter shine. The Falguni & Shane Peacock creation with thigh-high slit was complimented by the embellished body chain and her signature nude makeup made her own the green carpet.

  1. Katrina Kaif in snow crystal forest gown

This may remind of Aishwariya’s stunning frozen princess gown at Cannes 2017, but the ‘Snow Crystal Forest’ gown by Ziad Nakad undoubtedly complimented Kat’s flawless beauty, her happy princess-like persona and an elegant diamond sheen.

  1. Shilpa Shetty’s rose-gold lamè gown

This one is so Shilpa. The custom-made rose-gold lame gown by Monisha Jaising, fitting Shilpa’s physique perfectly with a flowy yet not flowy look, the sexy risque thigh-high slit for the wow and her beachy waves with smoky-nude makeup made a wow-statement.

  1. Alia Bhatt’s black princess gown

Alia Bhatt owned the entire IIFA event, including the Indian princess look in the pristine white Manish Malhotra lehenga that she wore to IIFA Rocks. But the black, off shoulder sequined gown by Zuhair Murad was surely the stealer of the show. With an overall embellished black princess gown, a deep plunging neckline, tiny diamond studs and smoky eye look, Alia owned it.
