Its just raining fashion shows right? While some of you might think what has happened to this self proclaimed “frugal” blogger, she is forever posting about high end fashion. True true true. But to that I would say, no harm in looking at good bridal fashion right?
Anything that goes on the runway eventually turns up in all the local markets…I know haww..horrible thing to say, but its true. Take for instance, Chandni Chowk…before the ramp outfits make it to the stores, these guys have their first hand replicas ready for you to see.
It then makes sense for all you brides to be to know what are the current trends, what is really out there that you can have, how to get that dream lehenga style you have always been dreaming about….it all starts from here ….
That is probably one of the main reasons why I write so extensively on bridal fashion. And please tell me, you don’t hate me completely for it?
Ok, so with that aside, lets head straight to the Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2016. I covered the show last year and I have been an ardent follower of this fashion show be its summer/resort collection or the winter/festive collection now. There is just no ignoring this fashion week. Its all over Instagram and I have been drooling over these celeb showstoppers. Have you seen the pics? They all look amazing.
#1 Shilpa Shetty for Anushree Reddy
Oh My GODDDD !!! Can Shilpa Shetty Kundra look any better (read sexier). I said this on instagram before and I say it again, I think I’m awestruck looking at her more than the Anushree Reddy outfit. May be because the showstopper outfit was seen once too many times before, but clearly Shilpa totally nailed the look. That fierce attitude, you go gurl !
#2 Shradha Kapoor for Manish Malhotra
A doll look for sure, and who better than the petite Miss. Kapoor to don the look for ace designer Manish Malhotra. I think I love the lehenga skirt more than the sheer top. The top looks a bit risky for brides to don, I mean who knows what people might comment….but I absolutely love love the skirt. Don’t you? Very bold, very dramatic, perfect for any pre-wedding functions.
#3 Sushant Singh Rajput for Manish Malhotra
Sushant Singh Rajput can look this hot ! Who knew….but I can’t stop smiling everytime I see him smile in these pictures…He looks great…and I’m fan now…What about you?
#4 Bipasha Basu for Sanjukta Dutta
Who can carry off a Bengali look better than our very own Bipasha Basu. It helped that she being a newbie bride made even more sense to walk as a showstopper for designer Sanjukta Dutta. I loved the classic white red saree, perfect for the upcoming Durga Puja. All in all a nice look.
#5 Kriti Sanon for Ritu Kumar
Kriti Sanon is the perfect pick when you want to do casual comfy dresses for showstopper looks. I swear by maxi dresses, and I hve more maxis than actual (short) dresses…it looks great on people who have a decent height…and that’s what worked with Kriti as well. She looks super cute, super chic in this black Ritu Kumar outfit.
Very wearable and definitely a Bombay winter pick for me.
#6 Karisma Kapoor for Architha Narayanam
She looked radiant in her red puffy gown, and I quite liked the outfit. Loved the trail at the back, and it makes for a stunning choice for a bride…its definitely a one of a kind showstopper gown. Very fairy like. I just wish it came with shorter sleeves, or sleeveless for that matter.
#7 Dia Mirza for Santosh Parekh
#8 Ileana D’cruz for Ridhi Mehra
I am not too big of a fan of the outfit…but I loved the cape dupatta style. I think the work on the dupatta added volumes to the otherwise plain outfit. But overall, a good outfit to have for a trousseau piece.
#9 Jacqueline Fernandez for Ashish Soni
#10 Radhika Apte for Saroj Jalan
She is my new favorite, who Radhika Apte…No…Saroj Jalan…Ever since I saw her collection in the Lakme Fashion Summer/Resort 2016 I knew she is one designer to watch out for. Her bridal style is amazing…with most of her work going in the traditional direction. Her lehengas are super heavy to look at, very bridaly and is equally expensive to own.
#11 Malaika Arora Khan for Shantanu & Nikhil
#12 Ritesh Deshmukh for Shantanu & Nikhil
#13 Kareena Kapoor Khan in Sabyasachi
#14 Prachi Desai for Sonam & Paras Modi
Oh what a look…black totally rocked the ramp this season…with majority of the celebrity showstopper looks in that color, but this outfit definitely stood out from the crowd…I love the flare of the skirt, the drama and opulence of the top and with that sleeve style dupatta, this outfit is a total rockstar.
#15 Pooja Hegde for Amoh by Jade
#16 Emraan Hashmi for Hamleys
