Ananya Panday for Arpita Mehta and Anushree Reddy
Ananya Panday marked her debut on the ramp on Saturday as a showstopper for designers Anushree Reddy and Arpita Mehta. Designers Arpita Mehta and Anushree Reddy launched their latest collection themed on “Blockbuster Bride” with actress Ananya Panday turning showstopper for both of them.
The designers presented their line-up that comprised quintessential bridal lehengas, gowns, anarkalis, sarees, shararas and jackets on Saturday at the Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2019.
Mehta’s collection called “TrenTradition” had a bohemian chic and festive approach. Colours ranged from hues of raspberry pink, pineapple yellow and powder pink in fabrics like silk georgette, crepe silk and silk organza in fluid, fuss-free silhouettes. The corset belts were definitely a hit for the show which was in association with Lakme Salon. Ananya wore a hot pink, heavy embellished lehenga choli, giving the dupatta amiss.
For designer Anushree Reddy, models walked down the ramp wearing contemporary lehengas that were heavily embellished with sequins and resham embroideries. The highlight of the show was the dark blue lehenga choli that had heavy jari work, paired with a purple dupatta. The neon pink lehenga with tube blouse was also a hit. Ananya donned an ivory, embellished lehenga, choli and dupatta.
Arjun Kapoor for Kunal Rawal
On Saturday, Designer Kunal Rawal, a known name in the male fashion industry, launched his latest collection “Confluence” at the Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2019. Bollywood actor Arjun Kapoor closed the show for his friend Rawal wearing a charcoal black suit with unusual hem line, black glossy oxford and sporting short haircut.
Malaika Arora for Diya and Rajvvir
On Sunday, Malaika Arora turned showstopper for Diya and Rajvvir as she walked the ramp in a stunning fusion wine-coloured lehenga choli, that looked more like a crop top and skirt, with rose embellishments. The crop top had a plunging neckline, and heavily ruffled bell sleeves. Her skirt featured a thigh-high slit, Malaika’s hair was slicked back, and she sported only ear cuffs and no other jewellery.
Kangana Ranaut for Disha Patil
While Malaika’s look was very edgy, Kangana Ranaut, who turned showstopper for Disha Patil, wore a pale bluish-lavender coloured heavily-embroidered lehenga and a tube blouse in organza, with a one-sided off-shoulder sleeve. Kangana’s hair was done up in a messy bouffant style, she wore matching bangles and earrings. The Queen actress sported bold eye makeup with a subtle lip colour, and did a cute little jig at the end of the show with designer Disha Patil.
Shilpa Shetty for Punit Balana
Shilpa Shetty was the showstopper for designer Punit Balana’s festive collection, the actress donned a cute embellished golden lehenga choli. The halter-necked choli showed off the actress’s toned abs and had mirrorwork all over it. Her lehenga was slightly shorter than usual, giving it a more casual look, and had mirrorwork on the waist and intricate designs on the hem. Shilpa’s hair and makeup were just like she styles herself usually, and she accessorized her look with chunky bangles and a cute matching potli bag.
Genelia D’souza for Saroj JalanDia Ajmera
Genelia D’souza made a comeback to the ramp as a showstopper after five years this weekend for designer Saroj Jalan who is launching her latest collection called “Banji” which is inspired by Roma Gypsies and Banjaras.
Genelia said in a statement: “I am excited to be walking for Jalan. I feel her collection, Banji, is for the modern Indian bride who loves details and intricate craftsmanship and most importantly they are lightweight and easy to carry.”
Actors Shabana Azmi, Soha Ali Khan, Urvashi Rautela and Neha Sharma also turned showstoppers for designers Kaveri Lalchand, Kavita Agarwal, Masumi Mewawalla and Kraft Peacock Couture respectively.
Kareena Kapoor Khan is expected to walk the ramp for designer duo Gauri and Nainika at the grand finale.
