Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week that kickstarts tomorrow in Delhi will have an unusual showstopper. Gulabo Sapera, the gypsy dancer from Rajasthan who shot to fame as a contestant in reality TV show Bigg Boss 5, will walk the ramp for designer Pallavi Jaipur.
Jaipur, who will showcase her collection on day 3 of fashion week says, “I am not too big on stars as showstoppers. Gulabo sums up the spirit of a Rajasthani woman that I wanted to show. She is a bigger celebrity than we know her as. She will be opening my show with a dance sequence and then closing the show with me.”
Asked if she might be intimidated by the leggy models on the ramp, Gulabo says, “Main toh apne hi style se chaloongi. Mujhe models se koi matlab nahi. Meri dress bhi Kalbaliya style ki hai jo ki designer ne banayi hai.” She adds, “Mere liye nayi baat nahi hai. Jab Aishwarya Rai Miss World bani thi tab bhi maine perform kiya tha.” She informs that she’s been invited to perform at the Queen Elizabeth’s diamond jubilee celebrations at London, in June this year.
