Bollywood’s hottest couple, Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor, walked the ramp in exquisite creations from Manish Malhotra’s ‘destination wedding’ collection, at the HDIL India Couture Week in Mumbai. Kareena sashayed down the ramp in a blush pink velvet lehenga, very becoming of the stunning actor, with beau Saif Ali Khan in a sherwani. These were of course just two of the many exquisite creations.
The collection featured not the usual bright reds and pinks but corals, sands, pinks and greys. There was also less of embroidery and an interesting use of textures and fabrics. Manish this time fussed over the fit and the fabric more than frills and embroidery.
And verbatim from Manish ‘it was for an Indian wedding but not in India!’ “In this collection, there wasn’t too much embroidery, there‘s more texture, there’s more sequin work and there’s thread work,’ said Manish.
And like a perfect gentleman escorting his ladylove, Saif said he was excited about walking the ramp with her.
“It was a lovely evening. When Manish asked us to walk, it was a pleasure. It was special to do it with Kareena,” he said.
The glamorous clothes did get a lot of attention from the audience, out of which many belonged to Manish’s illustrious clientele. The front row in fact was the who’s who of the glitterati.
Bollywood actors Priyanka Chopra, Preity Zinta, Uday Chopra, Raveena Tandon, all cheered for the designer and approved of the show as spectacular as ever.
“I think Manish is one of the most complete designers today. More than anything Manish understands a woman’s touch and feel. He understands clothes very well,” said Priyanka Chopra.
