Ranveer Singh took us down memory lane in his red blazer and flared pants, all the way to the 70s. We adore his quirky side but this look was a big nay. Then again, this still doesn’t make it to his top 10 fashion faux pas.

Katrina Kaif, who also bagged the award for the most stylish actress, took us by surprise in this sunkissed strapless Antonio Grimaldo dress. At first glance, we weren’t loving it but the more we looked at it, the more it grew on us. It’s refreshing to see her taking risks on the red carpet.
