If it weren’t for the heavy downpours that besieged New York City, we wouldn’t have been surprised if Alia Bhatt, Katrina Kaif and their ilk turned up in chariots and full regalia to complement their princess-ready ballgowns at the IIFA 2017 awards.
Space was of the essence on the green carpet as Bollywood’s best tried to navigate the area with their voluminous gowns and flouncy trails. Alia Bhatt won the Best Actor award, and our hearts, in a crystal encrusted Zuhair Murad while Katrina Kaif channelled her inner princess in a wintery Ziad Nakad number.
Our ELLE June covergirl Sonakshi Sinha contributed to the blinding flash of bling in a sheer mermaid gown from La Bourjoisie, while Disha Patani pulled a Bella Hadid at Cannes earlier this year in an itsy-bitsy concoction of jewels.
Couldn't make it to NYC to catch all the green carpet action in person? Here's what you missed.
