Bollywood's most glamourous award show India International Film Awards (IIFA) is slated to take place on June 25.

IIFA sees the most elaborate run-up to the main event and has every actor worth his salt present when it takes place. Understandably, actresses take special care in picking out their dresses for the glorious red carpet entries to the awards.

Here's chaecking out what some of the sexiest Bollywood chicas wore in the previous years:

Bipasha Basu

Bips went for this risque red hot outfit for IIFA in 2007. With dramatic eye make up and a mid riff-baring number, the actress sure was dressed to kill.

The fact that she looked her best at the time only made it all the more appealing.

Lara Dutta

Lara went for a nude dress with a plunging neckline which made her look chic and elegant. Only, she forgot her bust size while shopping for her dress. Or so it seems.

Sushmita Sen

Sushmita flaunted her perfect back in this saucy plunging black number, understated jewellery and make up at the 2009 IIFA awards held in Macau.

Jacqueline Fernandes

Sri Lankan beauty Jacqueline was femme fatale when she sported this slit dress in that gorgeous green hue when IIFA went to Sri Lanka in 2010.

Also, did you see the legs on her?

Kangna Ranaut

In 2009, Kangna Ranaut wore what looked like an extended tutu over a bejewelled corset.

And by the looks of it, she had a pretty had time in keeping things in place.

Sophie Choudhry

Singer/model Sophie did a Halle Berry for 2010 IIFA awards when she stepped out in a dress similar to the Hollywood actress' 2002 Oscar dress.

Priyanka Chopra

Priyanka, who's generally seen in cute short dresses, traded her western wear for the sari and cut a pretty picture at IIFA 2009 in Macau.

Sonam was greek-goddess gorgeous with her dress, her gladiator flats and the imposing kundan necklace in 2009.

Anushka Sharma

Anushka Sharma, who's fast gaining a reputation as a shard dresser, wore a maxi dress in this lovely blue hue for IIFA 2009.

Katrina Kaif

Looks like Katrina Kaif didn't have a competent stylist when she attended IIFA in 2009. How else would you explain this dress?

Shriya Saran

Southern siren Shriya wore a fuschia dress with a plunging back to IIFA 2008.

Asin was all smiles as she picked up her best debut award for Ghajini in this deep red number.

Genelia D'Souza

Genelia was her bubbly self and it reflected in her choice of dress -- totally fuss-free and very feminine.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan

And finally come Bollywood royalty. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, who seldom leaves her husband's side (or is it the other way round?) at award shows, wore a rather ill-fitting red dress but her upswept hair gives a very international look.
