It was a sight to behold, when actor Salman Khan came out to take a bow after his Being Human fashion show on Saturday night at the HDIL Couture Week in Mumbai. He was accompanied on stage by his showstoppers — all eight of them — including ex-girlfriend Katrina Kaif.
Conceptualised by Khan and stylist Anaita Shroff Adajania, the collection centered on each decade of fashion since the 1920s. “We had this amazing line-up of actors and the only way to do justice to each of them was to let them pay tribute to an era of style most akin to their own personal style. We built a story around each of them, from AVs to music to even dancers. It was nine shows within a show,” says Adajania. All outfits were designed by different leading designers.Preity Zinta opened the show in a 20s style dress with a wide-rimmed hat. As Kat entered, there was a loud gasp of surprise from the audience. Rani Mukherji wore a 40s style lehnga, and Bipasa Basu represted the 50s. Former actor Karisma Kapoor made a rare appearance. Sushimta Sen, who wore a mini skirti, walked with her daughter Renee.
Talking about her Madonna-look, Priyanka Chopra said, "It was awesome... She is my favorite musical icon." Kareena Kapoor, who wore a black satin tuxedo, was followed by Salman, who wore a red trimmed velvet jacket. All nine, then changed into Being Human tees and denims for the finale.
Surprisingly, many designers were unaware that their dresses had been showcased. Asked about his design, Rohit Gandhi said he had no idea that it had been showcased. “May be we did the clothes, our office may have handled it,” he said.
