Delhi Times PCJ India Showcase Week 2017 was a star studded affair. Celebrities from Bollywood and fashion industry showcased new ways to twist traditional outfits with the classic glitter, modern wedding wear and beach and summer wear. Although the event featured celebrity designers and their signature collections, as obvious, the major highlight of the evenings were celebrity showstoppers from Bollywood. Let’s have a look at who wore what at the event and quickly note down the takeaway for this season’s trend.
Malaika Arora Khan
We know age never touched her. But when she appeared on the ramp wearing a beautiful lehenga choli by Aastha Narang with a definite yet elegant glitter, it was if a queen making public appearance. She kept her hair neatly tide in a side swept bun and makeup fresh minimal to go with the beige lehenga. But for accessories she wore a set from P.C Jewellers to add that extra zing of royal glitter. And it couldn’t be more perfect. Soon to be brides, take note if you prefer a similar elegantly royal style for your wedding lehenga. Beige has long been in vogue among the most popular pastel shades.
When talking about trendy pastel shades and beautiful lehenga choli, it’s important that we discuss how fabulous Gauhar Khan looked as the showstopper for Meena Bazaar. If Malaika stunned us with some serious regal bling, Gauhar’s outfit came as a cool breeze for the summer brides. It was a beautiful lehenga choli in flesh tint shade with a quirky and interesting blouse. But the best part of the design was unlike the usual lehengas, this one had a pocket! A very useful and appealing idea to turn a nice lehenga into the best lehenga. Hear it from the showstopper herself, if you don’t believe us.
“Thankfully, I don’t have to wear a heavy lehenga, this outfit is for a super cool bride and the best part is that it has pockets. This shows that brides do not always have to be heavily decked up, they just can wear something like this which is easy to carry and looks cool”, Said Gauhar Khan.
She tied her hair into a sleek ponytail and an elaborated choker necklace to complete her look.
Mute shades of traditional wedding wear colours were highlighted the most as the predominant trend of this season in India Showcase Week. So when Zareen Khan appeared on the ramp wearing a muted peach lehenga for Karishma Deepa Sondhi, her dewy grace and intricate embroidery of the beautiful lehenga choli stunned everyone. With defined eyes, pink lip colour and a pair of dangling earring that dazzled every time she swirled her lehenga, Zareen looked straight from the cover of a bridal magazine.
