She has been amiss from silver screen for almost two years – the last we saw Neha Dhupia was in Ungli and it was a delight to see her strutting down IIFA’s green carpet in a yellow cape over white pantsuit.

When asked about her designer, she proudly said, ‘it’s Marks & Spencer, for $50’. Her stylist had done a fantastic job to turn a high street label look designer, with pulled back sleek ponytail, smokey eyes and pink-nude lips.

She continued with high-street-brand-mantra for IIFA Awards as well, this time opting for a white gown from H&M. However, she failed to impress this time. It resembled vaguely to a matron’s outfit, with hair that didn’t quiet compliment the look.

Yay for sunny retro cape, boo for the nun’s outfit.
