While Chitrangada started the show in black voluminous Gauri and Nainika gown, accessorising it well with statement neckpiece, Bipasha looked no less than a bride in designer Rohit Bal lehanga and matching jewellery.
“Whenever I wear Indian outfit, I make sure I accessorise it well with jewellery and today I am feeling like a queen. I started my career as a model and it’s great to come back to Delhi again and walk on ramp. It was such a great welcome that I felt emotional,a Bipasha shared after the show.
The actress, who was looking like a bride, was bombarded with questions on her wedding.
Asked that whether she would like to adorn the similar heavy pieces on her wedding day, she said, “I would love to look like a Bengali bride and I don’t mind if I get the chance to wear such beautiful looking pieces. Afterall, every bride wants to look her best on the most special day of her life.”
Chitrangada, on the other hand, took her inspiration from the famous Hollywood actress Marilyn Monroe when she walked down the ramp.
“Yes I tried to replicate her (Marilyn) but it is not easy . Doing Marilyn is not easy for anyone. She was someone who has inspired many but I tried to give it my best,” she said.
The show was mix of jewelleries from the Svara and Sondaraya collection of the title sponsor of the couture week. Pieces inlaid in gold and diamonds, embellished with precious stones such as emeralds, rubies and pearls, dominated the range of designs.
The Svara collection comprised of gold and polka jewellery embellished in precious stones such as emerald and ruby while Sondaraya was a variable mix of traditional motifs and contemporary styles in diamond jewellery.
