With new movies being launched and Bollywood waving goodbye to Summer, the awards season is yet to flourish. However, to warm things up, the Vogue Beauty Awards 2013 recently took place where fairer gender turned out in full force. To counteract the balance was just Ranveer Singh but the Fashion Police excuses him just this once while we make this a femme fatale special.

Diana Penty

The Falguni and Shane Peacock creation has been seen not once but twice worn by Sonali Bendre at Amitabh Bachchan's 70th birthday bash as well as by Malaika Arora Khan at the finale of India's Got Talent. The feathered gown has proved quite popular, with dull gold sequin work all over the front, standing quite prominent against the black background. The teardrop earrings along with the messy hairdo and smoky eyes gave Penty the perfect look for this occasion.  BollyCurry Rating: 4/5

Zarine Khan

Due to her usual lack of styling, Zarine Khan has rarely impressed the Fashion Police, harbouring mostly at the bottom end of our 'best dressed celebrities' list. Wearing a Sass & Bide inspired dress that could be mocked as a knock-off due to the detailing, as the hem of her dress curves unlike the Sass & Bide's original piece, Zarina carried the look off rather splendidly. Her hair tied up in a bun with few loose tendrils, her make-up kept to a minimum and the black pump heels all work together to complete the look. We are more than pleasantly surprised! BollyCurry Rating: 4/5

Alia Bhatt

Wearing Christian Dior Pre-Fall 2013 collection gown was Alia Bhatt looking completely overwhelmed. That huge smile is definitely due to her "Best of Bollywood" award, however, we can't say the same for her look this time round. The dress is designed for tall, built women, giving the petite actress an unwanted stumpy frame. We could give her brownie points for trying to carry it off, though. Make-up was kept to a minimum and those shoes are a must-have, but the hair could do with some work. Perhaps a more sleeker look? BollyCurry Rating: 2.5/5

Yami Gautam

Yami Gautam walked the Beauty Awards wearing a printed Blumarine dress that ended above her knees. While her dress pleased us, her hair was a total disaster. It seems like Yami is scared to experiment new hairdos, frequently sighted with the iron straight hair. We have to say we're sorely bored of this monotonous style. We're glad that she refrained from wearing any heavy adornments though, the dress is busy enough. Those heels get our stamp of approval as well. BollyCurry Rating: 3/5

Sonam Kapoor

The best of the night was the self-made fashionista Sonam Kapoor in her Alexander McQueen dress. From top-to-toe, she knew what she was doing. The black dress that pulls slightly and thus trails on the floor, lent the perfect slender shape to her already envied body, and her hair did wonders in highlighting those cheekbones and neck. Her smoky eyes and minimal make-up wholly finished her entirely look astoundingly. Two thumbs up! BollyCurry Rating: 5/5

Dia Mirza

The Fashion Police expects much, much more from this otherwise well-dressed actress. Walking in the overused and much plain LBD that ended above her knees was Dia Mirza, who has not been having much success on any red carpet off late. Her hair in some sort of loose bun, neither tight nor too loose, left us in two minds if we like it or not. Dark eye-liner was what stood out on her pretty face, with the gold-black heels serving as some sort of reprieve. We're disappointed, to say the least. BollyCurry Rating: 2.5/5

Aditi Rao Hydari

Making head turns was Aditi Rao Hydari in her bird printed Ashdeen gown. The dress in itself is gorgeous. The white train on the back, however, leaves a lot more to be desired. Unnecessary and unwanted, the train seems somewhat out of place. Her red lips are eye-catching, as are the earrings, even though they stand out for all the wrong reasons. The sly slit on the side was quite a surprise. BollyCurry Rating: 2.5/5

For better or for worse, these are just some of the female celebs who strutted their stuff on the Vogue Beauty Awards 2013 red carpet. Among others were; Neha Dhupia, Isha Koppikar and Shenaz Treasurywala.

Which look was the best? We await your feedback..
