Sridevi and Deepika Off the Ramp; Dia and Shraddha on it
AT AT MANISH MALHOTRA’S LAKME FASHION WEEK OUTING ON MARCH 18, THERE WAS NONE MORE STYLISH THAN SRIDEVI
Designer Manish Malhotra’s shows are almost always well-attended by Bollywood’s most stylish actresses and, at his Lakme Fashion Week outing on March 18, there was none more stylish than Sridevi. The English Vinglish star, wearing a sari in shades of blue from the designer’s collection, cut a figure so fine that we imagine actresses much younger than her 51 years would be reduced to tears of despair.
Deepika Padukone, sleek in a black belted jumpsuit, came a close second.
Kajol also wore a Manish Malhotra sari, while Jacqueline Fernandez and Huma Qureshi picked Western silhouettes from the designer.
Also wearing Manish Malhotra separates was Sin City actress Rosario Dawson, who was at the show to support a campaign on gender equality.
Actress Neha Dhupia wore a Dhruv Kapur dress but Richa Chadda stuck to Manish Malhotra, picking a blue maxidress.
Meanwhile, a smattering of Bollywood celebs were also spotted on the ramp at various shows. Dia Mirza closed designer Anavila Misra’s show in a glittering earth-toned sari. Shraddha Kapoor wore minimal black at the Absolut Sculpt show.
Aditi Rao Hydari, in rust fabric flowers, walked the ramp for Archana Rao and Shuddh Desi Romance actress Vaani Kapoor looked lovely in lavender Sailex.
