Sonakshi Sinha’s Orange Sundowner Outfit Open’s Lakme Fashion Week’s SS’17 Fashion Fiesta

  • January 24 12:53 PM

Celebrating Frank Sinatra’s famous quote, ‘Orange is the Happiest Colour’, actress Sonakshi Sinha recently walked the ramp as the showstopper for Monisha Jaising’s opening show for Lakme Fashion Week’s SS’17. Strutting down the wooden deck of the cruise ship Costa NeoClassica, the actress sported a one-shoulder bright orange outfit, with a dramatic trail.

The ship which is the first International luxury cruise liner to start sailing from Mumbai to Maldives, was selected as the venue for designer Monisha Jaising’s opening act for LFW this year. The grand show celebrated the designer’s statement holiday and resort wear styles that moved seamlessly from stunning swimwear to glamorous cocktail and evening outfits.

From pret to couture, Monisha’s collection inspired by the Arabian Sea, witnessed a mix of heavily embellished resortwear dresses, followed by evening gowns in opulent fabrics like satin, wool crépe and Italian organza, and few pieces in sequinned chikankari and metal encrusted chain mail.

The summer sundowner palette for the resortwear line up included hues of dramatic black, gleaming gold, sedate grey, pristine white, rose pink and rose tan. However, few head-turning outfits appeared in vibrant bursts of fiery red and fuchsia and finally a vibrant orange for the showstopper.
