Bollywood's worst dressed stars of 2009
Trivial as it may sound, fashion is an art. And not everyone has a flair for it. Yet sometimes even the mighty can goof up.
Browse through our list of Bollywood's Top Ten Worst Dressed Stars of 2009 on screen to know how.
Sexy, by rule, is effortless. Too bad in Amrita Rao's case it's jarringly laboured.
Her transformation from pretty girl-next-door to a size-zero siren may be a strategic move to sparkle in the limelight but these 'jhataak' outfits hardly make a great impression.

There's no doubting the Omkara hero's fine histrionic skills. Although two things he ought to remember.
A. I am not Ranbir Kapoor.
B. I am not Akshay Kumar either.
Hopefully that'll keep his loud flamboyance in check.

Unless your objective is to pose as a grain sack, loose silhouettes on a plump body type are a strict no-no.
Alas, Ayesha Takia keeps the tradition of getting it wrong again this year. Such a charming lady. Such a lame dresser.

As much as we love Sanjay Dutt's Gandhi-loving ways, let's not get too carried away.
Fact is the erstwhile hunk has put on weight and to flex flab like muscles in sleeveless shirts and transparent kurtis is a complete turn-off. How much damage control can a splash of tattoo and funky aviators do anyway?

Can't act. Check. No screen presence. Check. Now here's one starlet, a Ram Gopal Varma discovery at that, who can't even do sexy properly.
Priyanka Kothari's abysmal attempts to ooze oomph in itsy-bitsy non-polka dot bikinis and ilk are neither sensual nor appealing.

UK's tourist guides keeps harping about layered clothing. Trust Salman Khan to heed it with a difference.
The London Dreams star teams his denims with a full-sleeved black tee tucked underneath a maroon kurta, sleeveless sweater on top of it and a gamcha-styled stole to complete his quirky look.
Unless silly is the new edgy, it's a thumb down for this dhaba rockstar get-up.

Clearly Rock On!! understated style was Farhan Akhtar's doing. And so Prachi Desai is back to her sloppy teenybopper dressing ways.
Check this out: satin shirt, folded capris and big brown boots. Uh oh, this girl is in dire need of a stylist!

From fur-collared jackets to plaid suits, the Big B can carry off almost every design with panache.
Even so, Bachchan loves to indulge in 'over the top' every once in a while. Remember his bulb-lit body suit in Yaarana, iron chains-dangling jacket in Shahenshah or mad-hatter gypsy in Jhoom Barabar Jhoom.
And so here's another one of his uncool outings in something peculiarly drab and kitschy.

Soha Ali Khan
Boring and dowdy to the point of stubborn, with Soha Ali Khan, it's a case of 'love me, love my locks.'
While we are struggling to get used to those unruly flicks (reminiscent of Kishore Kumar's hairstyle in Padosan), there's no redeeming her uncoordinated, inelegant and badly-structured wardrobe.

Konkona Sen Sharma
She's not exactly worst dressed material. But Konkona seriously needs to get out of her Fabindia-inspired comfort zone and dare a little more than a pass shirt dress to accomplish that.
Considering how much she experiments with her roles, this should be a cakewalk.
