Celebrity Spotlight – LFW Winter/Festive – 2016
The Lakme Fashion Week, Winter/Festive, 2016, as usual, saw a bevy of Bollywood celebrities flocking to shows in support of their favorite designers. We take you through all the top celebrities at this year’s showcases, who were also total showstoppers for their respective designers.
Manisha Koirala made her first appearance after her tough and long battle with cancer. She looked like a vision to behold in designer Sohaya’s new collection, titled ‘Chola’. The gorgeous actress wore a black and navy blue layered silhouette, styled together with booties, smokey eyes and a center-parted ponytail which really gave her look the punch and pizzazz it needed. Many of Koirala’s fans were absolutely delighted to see her in such a cool, calm and collected avatar.
Kangana Ranaut is widely known in the industry for her fashion exploits. At this year’s LFW though, she just amped up her style to a whole new level, with ace designer Tarun Tahiliani’s exquisite new collection that saw models sashaying across the ramp in artistic silhouettes. Looking like a million bucks in a black maxi satin skirt, paired with a black top clubbed along with an embellished jacket, Kangana drew the curtains on a lovely show in the most flamboyant fashion.
Shraddha Kapoor looked like an absolute vision to behold when she stole the spotlight at Manish Malhotra’s glittering new collection of occasion wear that adds the glam to outfits for pre-wedding functions such as the sangeet and mehendi ceremonies. Malhotra’s Winter/Festive 2016 collection puts the spotlight on Indian craftsmanship combined with contemporary designs and ideas for a stylish and rather youthful bridal entourage. Sushant Singh Rajput along with Shraddha Kapoor was the perfect final act for Malhotra’s fairy tale showcase.
Sushmita Sen also made a runway appearance at Manish Malhotra’s LFW Winter/Festive showcase this year. The only one to be seen sporting a saree at the event, Sushmita looked sensational. She even kept her distance from jewelry, this time, making her look absolutely sensational.
Neha Dhupia was the only celebrity to attend multiple shows on day one. She was first spotted wearing a Chola jumpsuit while accessorizing them with a Jean Paul Gaultier clutch. Later on, she was seen wearing a Payal Khandwala dress together with a silver bag and necklace by Amrapali that just finished the whole look perfectly.
