The diva walked the ramp for designers Gauri and Nainika in an all-black off-shoulder ensemble grabbing eyeballs
Wrapped in an all black off-shoulder ensemble with layers of silk and net, actress Kareena Kapoor Khan brought down the curtains at the Lakme Fashion Week Grand Finale as she walked the ramp for closing designers Gauri and Nainika.
She sealed the look with bold lip colour laying emphasis on Lakme’s theme this season #FreeYourLips, which focussed at freedom of expression. The actress, who is the face of the make-up brand, said her association is almost 10 years old.
“Walking each season feels very special. Thanks to Lakme as I am getting a chance to strut for the best of the best. This feels more special because of Gauri and Nainika. We embody the power of women. The freedom of what women want, whether it’s about getting married, wanting to work or wanting to make your voice heard,” said Kareena.
Talking about the collection, the designers said that they tried to keep the range true to their DNA which is about being “glamorous and feminine.” Nainika said, “This time around there has been a lot of synergy with the Lakme’s new range of lipsticks. The whole sense of free your lips inspired us to create the beautiful hues as we use a lot of reds and pinks. There is a sense of lightness in the fabrics that we use, the matte lipsticks are very light weight. The freedom to experiment with the line gave me a sense of women empowerment.”
Lots of oversized silhouettes and bows, with solid colours — monochrome, red, green, hot pink and golden ruled the collection along with florals and sequins. Some models wore rubber gloves and boots in hues of yellow and orange among others. Songs such as Billie Jean and We belong to the light got the models in a playful rhythm to flaunt the multi-layered ensembles.
Nainika also shared that the range is full of bold silhouettes, rich embellishments, luxurious silk and embroideries that are inspired by vintage botanical illustrations and kew gardens.
(The finale was held at the Richardson and Crudass.)
