Oh My God. I can’t keep up with all the different fashion weeks going on back to back. ICW 2017 just got over what two weeks back, and already Lakme Fashion Week has also gone by. Unfortunately, I am still quite smitten by all the gorgeous heavy bridal couture outfits from FDCI’s ICW fashion week.
The first thing that came to mind when I laid eyes upon Manish Malhotra’s collection – Queen. The collection reminded me of surprisingly, game of thrones…and power, confidence, and bedazzlement. Since it is a Manish Malhotra show, you know there are going to be showstopper looks throughout, but this was on another level.
To be honest, I was not much of a fan of the top as much gung-go I was about the lehenga skirts. The skirts looked like nothing you have seen before, but the corset, I am really not sure if it is entirely bridal. The look is a bit risky, you know. But then again, Indian brides are getting bolder and bolder these days. So it wouldn’t come as a surprise to see some brides wearing these amazing evening outfits for their sangeet or cocktail night.
Don’t you just love the drama in the outfits? So magical isn’t it? Whether it is crystals, or velvet, fringes, sequins…what more can one want. I am usually not one to love subtle colours, but Manish Malhotra’s collection was definitely an exception. I loved the muted tones and the designs are so different than what we see in bridal wear.
And then there were the showstopper looks…
Look at that sizzling hot chemistry between the two actors. They looked so stunning. But somehow, I don’t know I am still in awe of Manish Malhotra. He looks no less than an A list star himself. Doesn’t he?
