The recently concluded Lakme Fashion Week saw the best showcasing of fashion, culture, trends and design that leading desi designers worked on, for the past year. The event is known for inspiring and creating trends in hair, makeup, fashion and style. It’s only natural then, that designers like to wrap up their line with their favorite muse or Bollywood celeb to give their designs the final flourish.
Like every year, 2016 too saw many Bollywood celebs and ramp favorites like Kareena Kapoor and newbies like Mira Kapoor grace the ramp. Let’s take a look at the roundup:
Jacqueline Fernandez for Manish Malhotra’s Summer Bride :
Seen in a flowery floor length gown with a sheer cape trimmed with flower motifs, Jacqueline embodied classic Manish Malhotra. The creation was in his signature style of feminine, pretty and delicate – with a neat long ponytail.
Aditi Rao Hydari for Jayanti Rao :
Aditi is one of my absolute favorites on the ramp at any given point – the lady is pure class and elegance, not to deny her spectacular looks, which is one reason why so many designers want to get her to walk for them. On day 3 of LFW this year, she wore a cream and gold lehenga with a sleek bun and a traditional maatha patti. Love!
Sonakshi Sinha for Anita Dongre :
Asli Sona wore a full-bodied ink bluee skirt and a jacket style blouse by one of Bollywood’s fave designers – Anita Dongre. While I’m not really fond of this outfit on Sona , I did like some of Anita’s other designs in the collection. What about you guys ?
Radhika Apte for Sonali Pamnani :
Chic and casual, Radhika wowed in this casual tunic and tan wedges – sucha wearable, downright pretty look. Another one of my favorites 🙂
Shruti Haasan for Anushree Reddy :
This girl is such a looker that she’d look good even in a sack-cloth. Anushree Reddy chose a light floral-hued dupatta, a bejewelled choli and a soft white lehenga for the lass complete with a glittery, studded choker. The effect was perfection on the ramp.
Shibani Dandekar and Monica Dogra :
If anyone could set the stage on fire, it had to be these two; and that’s exactly what they did when they strutted down the ramp in bold, deep-necked cholis and lehengas for Payal Singhal.
Shraddha Kapoor for Masaba Gupta :
Fierce, fun and sassy; Shraddha’s black crop top and co-ords looked every bit as exciting as she is. Masaba has been a fashion week favorite for years and this year too, she didn’t disappoint.
Lisa Haydon for Monisha Jaisingh :
There’s showstoppers and then there’s Lisa Haydon. Enough said !
Bhumi Pednekar for SVA Couture :
Remember her from DLKH , the Yash Raj film that went on to win a National Award this year ? Bhumi was the picture of contentment as she sashayed down the ramp.
Kareena Kapoor for Rohit Bal :
It is only natural that the finale should belong to a star and Rohit Bal presenting his collection on the grounds of St. Xavier’s College knew he picked well when he chose Kareena to finish off what will be, a great year for fashion.
Other known stars and guests :
Illeana D’cruz, Siddharth Malhotra, Arjun Kapoor, Sanjay Dutt and Bollywood’s newest celeb wife, Mira Kapur all made an appearance.
