Rewind 2012: Our Favorites

Another year ends and we present our favorite fashion moments from this year. Keep in mind that this list is a random order.

You could fine us for liking the first two just because they are practically the same outfit. Yet, each wore their Sabyasachi look so differently and made it their own.


Kalki Koechlin and Kangna Ranaut

Thanks to Heroine, Kareena gave us quite a few standout appearances this year but our favorite was the Ungaro appearance. Bye bye raccoon eyes! Natural makeup and an updo and we had ourselves an instant winner.

Poorna, with each appearance caught more of our attention this year. With the Bibhu appearance, Poorna showed us that she could do edgy as well as romantic.

Neha’s Atsu look stood out for us because it was very different from what we were used to seeing on the Filmfare red carpet. Read: blingy saris and same-ole gowns.


Kareena Kapoor, Poorna Jagannathan and Neha Dhupia

Kajol went through a major style-makeover this year but of all the looks, the one that we loved the most was this appearance in a floral chiffon sari. Simple yet sweet.

Sridevi set the bar high back in Jan itself in the Elie Saab printed gown. We love this look because it was kept simple. No statement jewellery let the gown do all the talking.

We saw Bipasha don Anamika Khanna many a times this year but it was this sari look at Singapore that she looked most adorable in.


Kajol, Sridevi and Bipasha Basu

Almost all of Ms. Padukone’s appearances have been winners but it was the red on red look in the Gaurav Gupta lace gown that was most memorable for us and part of the credit goes to the hairdo as well. Loved the short look on her.

Speaking of hairdos, even though we had expected Sonam to give us the best moment in Cannes, it was an at-home appearance in this Dolce & Gabbana suit look that blew our socks away. The hairdo was unconventional but Ms. Kapoor made it work and we loved this look from head to toe.

Priyanka’s most memorable look came not at home but while she was attending the Grammy’s. In a Gauri and Nainika strapless gown with sideswept curls, the actress has us wishing for many more such appearances. Alas, we didn’t get that many.


Deepika Padukone, Sonam Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra

Did we miss some memorable looks form 2012? Go on, tell us!

    Sush was a complete glamazOn at the I am she grand finale . . . The blue gown, the natural look, no jewellery and add to it she was at her fittest best !!! Karisma has had such a good run with ultra chick, simple elegant styling !!! and Deepika was at her best in that black and Golden gown can’t remember the designer though . . .

    Madhuri Dixit in the Black Anamika Khanna outfit on the ramp at the jewellery week!! She looked amazing beyond words…!

    all the year round, u guys have a chintrangada obsession, and not a single mention of her in ur list??? also not on board wid sridevi’s elie saab look as d best, she looked far better during her english vinglish promotion days…. and and and wat abt madhuri’s ramp look in anamika khanna (, she definitely blew me away wid dat… worth a mention, non??

  11. anon at | | Reply

    The tulle Gauri and Nainika, open back with ruffles gown that Deepika Padukone wore, was definitely worth a mention in your list, otherwise the list kinda sums up the best of 2012. GREAT!!

    Happy New Year!!

    A Very Happy New Year to Payal and Priyanka and all the HHC denizens! I hope 2013 is filled with joy and peace for us all.

      Wish you’d set up a poll where we could vote for the best look of 2013! Polls are fun!

      1. diptiN at | | Reply

        i agree a 100%

      2. karishma at | | Reply

        i agree too! that would be fun.

  13. BangaliBong at | | Reply

    DPad looks yum yum!. But Kajol, really? she looks like she draped one of Bombay Dyeing’s rather depressing cheap bed sheets and walked the red carpet.

    1. fashionVictim at | | Reply

      thats definitely not a cheap bed sheet. Thats a classic floral chiffon saree…

  14. Rash at | | Reply

    Agree with all and the top kalki look was even my best look of 2012!
    I would have added madhuri’s recent dior at Hello awards And Anushka’s Roberto Cavalli at Jab Tak Hain Jaan premiere in the list!!!

  15. aish at | | Reply

    From all these choices, one thing is clear that u people like clean, tied hair on the muses of bollywood

  16. amina hai at | | Reply

    sonam’s this look is not one of my favorites

  17. BlahBum at | | Reply

    You guys missed sameera reddy and chritangada Singh… And mentioned pc n bebo.. Wt has the world come too.. And also Sonali bendre .. Thot she did some memorable looks this year..

    1. BlahBum at | | Reply

      And Natasha ponawala :)

  18. Life tarka at | | Reply

    Not a single mention of Chitrangada!!!!!! She totally rocked in the iifa awards

  19. Rii at | | Reply

    It’s Kalki, Kangna and Bipasha for me. The rest of them are regular at best. For Sonam, I really liked the red sari she wore. It had a black border. I don’t remember the event or the designer. Kareena’s legs are too stubby to make any knee-length dress work on her.

  20. shyba at | | Reply

    Just love the Sabya collection as well as Anamika Sari and blouse

    Love Kareena in that dress

    P&P wish you both a Very Happy New Year

    May the Almighty continue to bless youwith things that matter most in life – a gift of good health, happy home and peace of mind throughout the coming year.

    From start to finish, this list is a…”you’ve got to be kidding me”.

  23. Rajvi Bhow at | | Reply

    So ull finally decide to do a round up.. thanks for making time :)

    Although agree with most of your choices except for Sonam Kapoor..Seriously? She in this outfit with hairdo looked and red lips reminded me of a joker.

  24. fashionVictim at | | Reply

    there has been no comment on this post??? Strange!!! and my comment is still not moderated…

  25. karishma at | | Reply

    sridevi was the best dressed, imo, in 2012. this is going back quite a bit but i’d say sonam was the best dressed in 2011. i hope that in 2013 we’ll have a suprise package like sridevi.

  26. Enaya at | | Reply

    One of the few things I’d like to ask HHC about their selection is how come the stylists don’t get a mention? Or do we not know who the stylists are? We all know Kareena most definitely does not make the best wardrobe decisions but HHC still put her on the best dressed list…interesting.

    Really with the Kajol pick? One actress who’s as bad as Kareena with their natural style is Kajol. I agree with ^^^ comments about Ms. Singh, you guys missed a good one.

  27. Kiwi at | | Reply

    Only deepika and so am make the cut.sridevis best look was her black and fawn net sabya Saree

  28. Supriya at | | Reply

    Pc, Kareena, Sridevi, Neha, Kajol and Bips’ looks are completely not mentionable on an annual list.. Kajol definitely had better moments…

    N you guys made me like Sameera Reddy by featuring her over n over, n no sign of her here… :P
    neither of Madhuri, or Natasha Poonawala…
    Sridevi had much better fashion moments than the one above…

    1. Supriya at | | Reply

      noone from anywhere other than bollywood as well…

      this is almost a most-frequently-seen-on-or-off-screen-actresses list of 2012… even then anushka’s missing..
      c’mon guys…
