While we missed the Khans - Shah Rukh, Salman Khan and Aamir Khan - our hunger for celebrities and fashion was satiated by the rest.
Blacks, whites and blues with a few pops of yellow and orange dominated the red carpet. Leading the black pack was Priyanka Chopra in a halter jumpsuit with gold danglers. Anushka dazzled us in an Armani tiered gown with her hair in a halo braid.
White had its own fans. Like Alia Bhatt in her Shehlaa by Shehla Khan gown and Sophie Choudry in a dreamy Manav Gangwani gown.
Sonakshi Sinha favoured blue this evening - in a Notte By Marchesa off shoulder gown with a cinched in waist - as did Sonal Chauhan in a sleek Maheka Mirpuri gown.
Big wins also marked the evening. Priyanka lifted the Star of the Year award, while Manoj Bajpayee toook home the Best Actor award.
