Lehengas, kalidaars, saris -- what do you think of these A-list celebrities' outfits? Let us know by taking a vote on each!

It's been a season of several high-profile weddings and awards functions for our glitterati and they've been flitting from one do to the next in their fashionable best.

What's more, the rage over evening gowns is fast dying down and everyone is back to glamorous ethnicwear. So here, we present our hotties in Indian wear -- vote for their choice of outfits and let us know whether each is a hit or a miss!

We start off with Bollywood's queen of the hour Katrina Kaif, seen here in a haze of peach, pink and white. Her elegant choli moves into a sheer kurta and ends at her ankles, like her lehenga. We think Kat's outfit has a lot of royal appeal, but what do you think?

She may not be as popular an actress as Kat, but Dia Mirza can certainly hold her own when it comes to style. She positively stuns in this contemporary take on the traditional sari, complete with attached sheer black lace blouse.

From the First Wives' Club, Gauri Khan is definitely a leading fashionista. Her rich green drape is complimented by a heavily worked matching choli -- and a whopper of a solitaire emerald!

Bubblegum pink is not exactly a flattering hue, but we think Twinkle Khanna did a remarkable job carrying it off here, what say? Her churidaar kurta is cute and cheerful.

Hmmm. We're not so sure pale yellow is Rani Mukerji's colour. The sari is pretty enough (undoubtedly Sabyasachi), but it seems to do nothing for the No One Killed Jessica actress, does it?

Radiant and ravishing in red, Nita Ambani looks like she could give plenty of younger ladies a run for their money with her style choices. We particularly liked her Judith Leiber Ganesha clutch purse. Embellished with crystals by hand, it carries a cool pricetag of Rs 2,60,000 (for a closer look, click here).
