Red Gown

Red seems to be the color of choice on the red carpet in 2016. L-r: Deepika Padukone, Katrina Kaif and now Priyanka Chopra all chose to wear red gowns for various red carpet events this year. (Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif/Facebook photos; Alberto E Rodriguez/Getty Images)

They came, they saw, and they slayed! Looks like red is one of the more popular colors for Indian actresses to wear at award ceremonies and red carpet appearances.

At the Filmfare Awards in April, it was Deepika Padukone who showed up in a red gown designed by leading London-based fashion house Ralph and Russo Couture. This cowl-back number showed the actress' flawless back, and she matched her lips with this deep red sequined gown. 

In July, actress Katrina Kaif was bestowed one of the highest honors from the coveted house of fashion, Vogue. She showed up wearing a Ramona Keveza peek-a-boo gown and looked absolutely resplendent. The actress won the title of Beauty of the Year!

Enough has been said about the red Jason Wu gown worn by Priyanka Chopra at the Emmy's. The "Quantico" actress stood out in this one-shouldered, flowing chiffon gown, winning many hearts and critics' approval on the red carpet.

Red is considered a great color for warm Indian skin tones. The olive brown/gold skin color makes it perfect to carry any shade of this beautiful hue. Looks like the stylists of the actresses knew, and they made it work for these actresses and how!
