A great dress on the red carpet is a must – but perfect jewellery can make a look. Enter moments like Deepika Padukone’s glorious fuchsia pink and golden sari, Sonam Kapoor’s standout one-shoulder Hyun Mi Nielsen frock, Shilpa Shetty’s sculpturesque Reem Acra and more on the Hindusan Times India’s Most Stylish red carpet, who pairedperfectly tailored pieces with breathtaking chokers, earrings and cuffs.Here, the best, most ornate jewels on the HT India’s Most Stylish 2018 red carpet.One person emerged as the unparalleled sartorial victor of the style award’s red carpet — and that’s actor Sonam Kapoor. But her statement yellow dress would have been bland without the Jet Gems choker, Gehna Jewellers rings and Renu Oberoi bracelets she wore. (All photos: Instagram.com)Actor Deepika Padukone’s appearance at the awards was made memorable because of the traditional-with-a-twist choker and stud earrings from Tanishq that she wore to the ceremony. Who needs diamonds when you have statement pieces like these stunners?Actor Shilpa Shetty wore some blinding bling to the awards. She opted for only a Yoube Jewellery Ltd palm cuff to accessorise her shimmery dress, and to be perfectly honest, we can’t blame her. The standout piece literally looked heavy enough to be worn on its own.Actor Kriti Sanon’s eclectic mix of Nitya Arora bangles paled in comparison to her Minerali Store chandelier earrings.Actor Huma Qureshi looked delighted to be draped in diamonds. She wore a necklace from Renu Oberoi with earrings by h.ajoomal. If this doesn’t qualify as bling, we don’t know what does.

An evening full of glamour, entertainment and celebration.HT India’s Most Stylish Awards 2018was an event that the guests aren’t going to forget in a hurry. Here are the top 5 highlights:The evergreen style diva Rekha had us sniffing into our tissues when she accepted the Hall of Fame (Female) award. “This is a reminder that my amma (mother) is still around me,” she began. She went on to address the secret to why she always prefers to don saris, and in particular, kanjivaram saris. “Wearing a sari is about my roots, my tradition, and it reminds me of my mother. I feel engulfed with love and protection. Thanks, amma, for making me stylish.” We heart!Sonakshi Sinha threw so much shade in her acceptance speech, we could hardly handle it. She didn’t hold back while receiving the Breaking the Mould (female) award: “When I entered the film industry, people said my forehead is too big. I said so is Angelina Jolie’s, and flaunted bold hairdos. They said I’m too big, so I danced my way into big blockbusters of Indian cinema. They said I can’t do certain kinds of roles, so I went on to break the mould.” A true queen!Akshay Kumar let loose his charming and humourous side as he went on stage to accept the Jeep Style Badge of Honour. Among the presenters was a senior official from Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, the company which manufactures the SUV brand Jeep. Tongue firmly in cheek, Kumar asked him if he would also be getting a Jeep, to add to the trophy. Put on the spot, the official was left with no choice but to say yes. And that’s how Akki might just have earned himself a new car purely through his wit.TV actor Hina Khan (who won Most Stylish TV Personality — Female award) was not embarrassed or ashamed to admit that she was a tad nervous on stage. We adored her honesty when she said: “It’s my first time being among such Bollywood celebrities receiving this kind of award.” Khan managed to touch our hearts with her candour.As Sanjay Dutt won the Style Legend (Male) award, host Vir Das pointed out that he’s always been a trendsetter in Bollywood. Das asked Dutt what style he is currently setting, to which Dutt quipped: “For the last three years, I had a style of wearing jail’s khadi kurta pyjama, topi and tilak. But I don’t wish that for Bollywood.”
