Kangna Ranaut, 24, looked absolutely stunning in a heavily embroidered golden-white gown as she walked the ramp for designer Shantanu Goenka on Day Three of the ongoing Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week. While she herself looked gorgeous she feels Sonam Kapoor is the ultimate style diva.

Who according to you is best dressed in B-Town? "Sonam is really nice. She’s very fashionable," said the actor.

What about Bollywood as a whole? "I don't want to hurt anyone with my remarks, but I find that the style quotient is missing in Bollywood except for Priyanka and Sonam who know how to carry themselves well," said Kangna.

Kangna on her outfit: "The collection is inspired by French queen Marie Antoinette. The golden and white dress that I’m wearing compliments my complexion and figure."

Is Kangna fascinated by sequels right now? "I’ll be working for Tanu Weds Manu sequel and Ishqiya Part 2."

The French inspired vintage collection was surely one of its kind. Baroque detailing and architecture from palace of Versailles was showcased on the ramp in the form of fine embroideries and appliqués on the garments. Wallpaper prints and gold embellishments were certainly the highlight of the collection. Frills, pleats and drapes were widely used.

Shantanu Goenka on his collection: "Baroque is the next big trend. I was planning to do it for a very long time. Floral print will also be in. I have used a lot of gold which is incorporated from baroque architecture."

The collection featured dresses, gowns, skirts, shorts, jackets and boleros. The colour palette consisted of greens, whites, blues, pinks, creams and golds. Fabrics used are satin, silk, taffetas, tulles and organza.

The fashion event is scheduled for October 8-12 at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi
