The GQ 35 Most Influential Young Indians 2023 awards was less about influence and more of a glamourganza, with newly-minted mom Alia Bhatt leading the pack.
But then influence and fashion go hand and hand. It's one of life's truths that the better dressed you are the more you can influence? No?

One of the ways Janhvi Kapoor stays forever alive in her fans' minds, nay hearts and desires, is leaving them lasting images to longingly remember her by?
Who could forget her in this bodacious gram-worthy gown with enough straps and cutouts to scramble the brain and boggle the senses.
IMAGE: Richa Chadha puts together enough heat to deflagrate the whole blessed venue in a fem-fem oldie velvet number with a front slit.
All she needs is a pair of pointy lorgnettes. And maybe a cigarette on a long holder to return us to the 1920s flappers era.
