This year, in terms of Bollywood fashion, I think we did rather well. I have a few clear favourite films according to the costumes and look.
The top of the list is definitely Goliyon ki Raasleela — Ram-Leela. It was the most beautifully styled movie this year and full credit should be given to Anju Modi, the costume designer for the movie. The clothes were relevant to the times and the setting of the story. Not only were the clothes of the lead pair — Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone — perfect, even the costumes worn by the rest of the cast were splendid. The shoes and jewellery worked very well with the clothes. It's a surprise that this was Modi's first movie as a costume designer. She brought ethnic back to the closet and I came to this realisation with the way anarkalis and jhumkas, among other traditional Indian items, are selling out on my online fashion store.
I recently watched Dhoom 3, and while all characters were not exactly well-styled, I do think that Aamir Khan and Katrina Kaif's characters looked very fashionable. They looked contemporary and urban. Sonakshi Sinha and Ranveer Singh looked impeccable in Vikramaditya Motwane's Lootera. There was no skin show to attract attention, yet Sinha's saris and the retro look that Singh sported in the movie stayed with me. It was very aesthetic and I think Sinha looked her best in Lootera.
I fell in love with the way Manish Malhotra played with colours in Chennai Express. He made some very bold choices in the sari colours and still kept them simple and pretty. Deepika Padukone's lungi sari in the promotional song, Lungi dance, was a very good twist to the styling.
While these are some of my favourites, some movies were just plain atrocious. Unfortunately, Sinha, who looked splendid in Lootera, was a part of the two worst-styled movies, according to me — Bullett Raja and R...Rajkumar. The awful red gown in Bullet Raja was such a big disappointment. It's as if no one gave any thought to the costumes. Sinha did not play a fashion victim in the movie, but definitely looked like
