With all expected glamour and innovative collection by well-known designers around the country, Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2014 which took place at Palladium Hotel, Mumbai had its grand finale recently that too in presence of none other than queen of million hearts- Kareena Kapoor Khan. Who walked the ramp as the showstopper for designer Manish Malhotra on the final day.
She looked mesmerizing in a metallic purple lehenga with grey shades and a complete diamond and silver studded open jacket teamed with a nettet chunni. On the name of jewellery, all she donned was a cocktail ring which was as bold as Kareena on the stage. Indeed Manish’s collection raised the glamour quotient of every attire with bling and glitters. He exhibited bridal collection that was a way to higher in fashion and understated colors were used to make a different approach. The bridal wears were a blend of long gowns, skirts, saris, lehenga cholis with heavy diamond studded sequence and embroidery work.
Expressing his idea behind the collection and why he picked Kareena for the special show, Manish said, “It’s been a long journey. She is my sister. She has been the coolest bride I have ever dressed so Lakme can’t have a better show stopper than Kareena.” For her outfit he added, “I have used two versions of grey. I want this grey to be popular this winter.” Other side Kareena also did not miss the chance to praise Manish’s work and averred, “I wear what I feel comfortable in. I think Manish is a gift to the film industry and I feel comfortable in all his outfits.”
Manish was also asked about what should a bride-to-be wear this bridal season to which he said, “Firstly, she should allow herself to experiment — while the wedding day is usually traditional, the other functions allow her to set her rules. Instead of the traditional reds and pinks, go for colours like wine, burgundy, silver and even grey (that I have given to Kareena here). The fabrics I’ve worked with are specially-treated textured silks, velvets, flowy chiffons and soft nets. Another big trend is that of a gown sari — a perfect choice for a cocktail.”
Well girls if you are going to get married or going to attend your BFF’s wedding than here are few tips by expert Cory Walia for you. On being quizzed by sources about the upcoming trends to watch out for this bridal season, he explained- “Inspired by international runways, the hot trend of gloss with well-hydrated dewy skin and hi-shine makeup is all set for a traditional interpretation. I urge brides to go for glossy finished lips in shades of reds and plums and jewel-toned lined eyes. Also, don’t forget the nails — instead of a normal nail colour, opt for gel based high gloss nail colour that perfectly complements your manicures.”
