Bollywood Divas On The Ramp
Keeping with the latest wave of India-centric style in the fashion industry. Many designers turned to some of Bollywood's delectable diva's to present their vision of couture at the recent India Couture Week held in Mumbai in September.

And in true desi ishtyle the Bollywood beauties certainly added the glitz and glamour to the shows. Though maybe not as sculpted and chiselled as the willowy indigenous models the actresses turned models certainly kept the audience mesmerized as they presented the designer clothing with their own individual aura and mystique.

Swaying down the ramp were Sawaariya's leading actress Sonam Kapoor for good ole' pal Anamika Khanna. On Anamika's clothing Sonam said, she loved Anamika's clothes because they not only looked good but they also felt comfortable. Karishma Kapoor caused a ripple of appreciation and sighs amongst the male audience members as she tore up the runaway in a stunning Manav Gangavi maroon velvet lehenga ensemble. Former Miss Universe (1st Runner Up) Madhu Sapre delighted the audience in Ashish Soni adding a touch of Italian joie de vivre in her mannerisms.

Priyanka Chopra exuded demurity and innocence as immortalized a painting of Mogul Miniaturism in award-winning designer Ritu Kumar's latest bridal collection. Kumar's decadent, embroidered and embossed lehengas were picture perfect as they showcased the best of urban taste with regional craftsmanship. The lehengas utilized a range of textures from the wispy organdies, chiffons and crepes to the heavier silks and brocades sometimes incorporating many fabrics at once. The embroidery illuminating the best of hand-embroidery in Kashmiri kashida, Punjabi phulkari, and gota Rajesthani tila, and Indian gold-work. The maudlin memories of the Royal Courts seemed to have re-appeared on the stage due to Kumar's keen dramatic sense of fashion and contemporary urban chic.

Sisters Raima and Riya Sen caused a flurry as they sashayed in Kumar's sensuous low back cholis. Neha Dupia was a portrait of elegance and poise as she modelled Kumar's bridal ensemble.

India's own celebrity models on the slate included Carol Gracious, Jesse Randawa former Miss India 1978 Anna Bredmeyer.

And we haven't turned our focus on the luminaries in the audience, which we must say was also keeping with pomp and glamour of the event. Spotted were Javed Akhtar, Queenie Dhody, VJ Shruti, and Karan Johar to name a few.
