64th edition of filmfare awards concluded and I thought of talking about some of my favs at the ceremony. But, I was disappointed coz there wasn’t much to write home about. Rekha, Anushka Sharma, Aishwarya Rai Bacchan, Shilpa Shetty, Jacqueline Fernandes gave it a miss and I was kind of looking forward to seeing their looks. Nevertheless, let’s see who kind of made it to ODD-CAT’s books?

DEEPIKA PADUKONE
She is a stunner anyway because good looks, style, personality, poise- she is everything! Rare but there. Wearing an Alberta Ferreti tux torso gown, she once again set ablaze the red carpet for me. Everyone is like- oh we expect more from her blah blah… but you know what, she was by far my fav!

ALIA BHATT
Everyone’s sweetheart looked every bit delicious, delicate and dazzling! She wore a Ralph & Russo gown and it was more than perfect for her, bringing out a whole of sheer romance! I’m blowing kisses :* :*

ATHIYA SHETTY
There’s something about the tan skin that glows effervescently in lime green & beige. This gown with pockets from Bibhu Mohapatra was spot on for her. She is totally working it with a low ponytail and diamonds! Shine on, girl!

CHITRANGADA SINGH
She epitomizes Indian beauty for me. Wearing an off-white MaisonYeya, she was bold & beautiful and a little bit extra with those curls grazing her collar bones. So much love <3

VAANI KAPOOR
A metallic jumpsuit with a cowl neckline and floor length jacket in the same metallic tone was a unique pick. Often spotted in Nikhil Thampi outfits, she is one of the few who pulls it off! A befitting muse, may I say?

MRUNAL THAKUR
Smouldering! Dare I say, she beat some of the better actors in the industry with her outing this time around. Wearing a shimmery Karen Millen with slick hair & bold lip, she nailed it! A lesson in glamour- achievable & assertive!

DIANA PENTY
Doll-like & dynamite. She made ruffles & pleats & volume look so darn easy yet glamorous! Side parted-ponytail, barely there sandals- she made this tricky Dolly J gown look very wearable & wow.

There were so many others from Bollywood but TBH from me- this is it! Deflating because the list is short. And you know what’s worse? Sonam Kapoor wasn’t on my best-dressed list L

Here’s hoping, we will get more from Bollywood 🙂 Happy Monday y’all!

The famous awards need no introduction hence lets just straight away meet (drum rolls, please!) the best-dressed women at Oscars 2019! The excitement cannot be contained and I love how we all wait to give our comments (or simply admire or slam) on the celebs that walk the most talked about red carpet.

A little note: I don’t really believe in the concept of slamming celebs on their choices (at such events, particularly) in fashion! It makes for a fun convo (sometimes) but I’m in that “happy” state of mind, wherein I would love to celebrate women rather than shame them. All right then, let’s scroll!

#1 Lady Gaga
Let’s just say, every time she is walking the red carpet, it feels like “A Star is born”! Literally so at the Oscars, as she did an “Audrey Hepburn” is reborn look! The Alexander McQueen gown with a sculpted waist, the long gloves, and the $30mn yellow-diamond Tiffany necklace made her ever bit stand out and it became Oscars at Tiffany’s (more than Breakfast at Tiffany’s).

#2 Charlize Theron
Oozing every bit of elegance and class, Charlize Theron totally slayed! The powder blue Dior gown, the Buglari Serpenti necklace, the red lip- a total winner and all we are saying is- You killed it, Charming Charlize!

#3 Emma Stone
Emma has a sense of style that gives her an edge- every. single. time. I really thought she would do the Tux and give me a break from the fairyland, but she didn’t. In fact, what she did was- make this fairyland worth my while. The strong-shouldered, amber-coloured custom Louis Vuitton was delectable and dynamite! Love, love, love!

#4 Kiki Layne
There is definitely a lot of PINK this award season (and I must write about that) but somehow it’s being brilliantly worn. Kiki’s first time at the Oscars and she was an absolute stunner. Definitely got me pink-ed in her bow-back Atelier Versace gown & Atelier Swarovski jewels. What’s more to love? She got her mum as her date. Heart-melting!

#5 Rachel Weisz
This beauty tells us how to wear RED on the red carpet. Li’l bit of PVC, li’l bit of 3D embellishments, li’l bit of pleating, all hitting the right notes with this Givenchy Couture gown. And, that headband of Cartier jewels was a perfect addition. So beautiful, Rach.

#6 Laura Harrier
Goegrousness! I was speechless to see Laura Harrier in this baby blue custom Louis Vuitton gown. Her bronzed skin looked radiant against the embellished blue outfit. And the diamond-emerald Bulgari necklace just made her shine a whole lot more. Also, her make-up was impeccable. What I’m singin’- Totally irresistible!
(On a side note: She also followed the Red Carpet Green Dress Challenge. The materials & embellishments of her gown are sustainably sourced. Yup- that is more than commendable!)

#7 Jennifer Lopez
If it’s about the red carpet, there has to be the ever-glamourous JLo! She was shining and working every bit out of that mosaic-mirror dress by Tom Ford. Stupendous! Phew, are you sweating?

#8 Allison Janney
One of my favorites! It was not just another ball gown…there were plenty, FYI! The black gown with a plunging neckline by Pamella Roland set new rules for the red carpet. Heart-shaped rubies by Chopard adorned her neck and I have to saw- she was The Showstopper, at 59! Yes, I have to mention her age to kind of rub it in your face… in a good way, of course!

#9 Irina Shayk
What’s stunning about Irina other than Bradley Cooper? Irina herself! Her open-back Burberry gown with a chain-detailed waist and chain-fringes on the sleeve was understated glamour. I loved the asymmetric bob and her happy face. Classy & Fabulous!

#10 Elsie Fisher
This one was hard! I honestly was done with my list at #9. But, I had to pick the final one. Elsie Fisher- simply because she wore a three-piece Thom Browne suit with a lot of attitude. The box bag, the tiepin, the bold gaze! Not always a red-carpet look but you know what- she had the attitude.

There were many celebs that are being talked about for Oscars best-dressed list. However, they aren’t on my list. You wonder why?

  • How much pink is too much pink? Kacey Musgraves, Gemma Chan, Angela Bassett, Sarah Paulson…. And so many more! I think my next write-up is “The Power of Pink” or The Pink Panther.
  • Thigh-high slits. Ok sure, they are sexy but my fashion-brain is kind of numb to it now. Unless, you really blow me away. And, that didn’t happen. Sorry, Regina, Brie or whoever.
  • In your face. I love OTT. I love being over-dressed. Trust me- because this site is named after that (ODDCAT- Overdressed cat). However, don’t be so in my face that I can’t feature you here simply because it’s a site takeover.

Have some humour, you guys! Send in your comments. Laziness is not a virtue 😉
