Actress Bipasha Basu, who recently cut her hair really short, surprised audiences at the ongoing Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week (WIFW) Wednesday by sporting her signature long tresses once again while walking the ramp for designer duo Gauri and Nainika Karan.

"See how wonderful stylists are today! In the morning I had short hair and now I have long hair," Bipasha told IANS.

"I had to revert to my long tresses because it was important for the look," she said.

Asked about her association with the designers, she said: "I have a very close association with Gauri and Nainika and they have made me look beautiful on many occasions."

"They are two little dynamites, who are very talented and their clothes are very elegant and royal," she added.

The show saw a series of lavish romantic gowns, with Bipasha setting the ramp ablaze in a blush pink 'Cinderella' dress, having an empire cut bustier and a velvet band across her left shoulder.

It opened with a model dressed in a soft, merino wool and tweed attire with subtle, pared-down cuts. The show saw plush duchesse satin folded, pleated, darted, draped, bunched-up and ballooned in strong silhouettes.

"We started with muted brown and subtle shades to first appeal to an audience, which is not comfortable sporting bright and vivid colours," Gauri said after the show, which also had Bollywood actor Amisha Patel in audience.

Rich black velvet bands were used throughout the entire line, giving it a sharp and tailored edge. Golden and scarlet roses delicately woven into wispy black fabric brought an element of fairy tale fantasy to dresses in feminine cuts.

"Our collection is very feminine, rich, strong, sexy, glamorous and structured. However, we didn't draw inspiration from a single subject but a variety of them. This time we just did what we wanted," the designer said.

The palette had colours ranging from magenta, blood red and pink to acid green black and white.

Fabrics like satin, velvet, tulle and lace were used to design A-line dresses paired with shorts or pants. "The use of these fabrics signifies opulence," she explained.
