Bollywood divas at Lakmé Fashion Week
From punk hairdos to the vintage bangs; there was nothing that our starlets didn’t try as they took over the ramp at Lakmé Fashion Week.
She sashayed on the ramp for Shilpa Reddy, with an elegant stance. She had her auburn locks tied up in a nebulous retro updo with shimmery-soft smoky eyes and tawny matt lips for a phenomenal appearance.
For Ridhi Mehra, Advani looked like an ethereal princess with her buoyant tresses cascading in lose waves over shoulders and with the added drama of smoky eyes, soft pink lips and a rosy flush on the cheeks.
Ditching her bangs, the starlet walked the ramp for Tarun Tahilliani setting off a punk vibe with her long locks swept to one side – coiffed at the crown – and to add to the charm of the ruffian look, her lips were tainted with a bright orange lipstick and eyes were dramatized with elongated eye liner and long lashes.
The bubbly starlet walked the ramp for Suneet Verma as a beautiful bride with her bangs pushed on the side as her hair was twisted and braided into a side fish plait, adorned with flowers – reflecting the colours of her outfit – that took the fish braid from simple to ornate. Her makeup was not kept over the top with soft smoky eyes, fluttery lashes teamed up with chiseled cheekbones and pappy nude lips.
She glides on the ramp for Sonu Dharnidharka with a halo of that of a Greek goddess with her aphotic tresses tumbling down her shoulders in soft-messy curls, while parted at the center and twisted from the sides to set off the Grecian tone. Her strong leer with dark smoky eyes and nude lips added an extra inch to the look.
She took over the ramp for Nishka Lulla, like a breath of fresh air, with her dark locks tied up in a messy low slung bun with a fresh glowing complexion and a dash of mascara reamed up with glossy peach lips to complete the nymph look.
She took over the ramp for Payal Singhal with a ready-to-get-hitched look as her brown looks cascaded down her shoulders in nonchalant waves and her makeup kept simple and modern with thinly lined eyes and matt coral lips.
This diva glided down the runway for Anushree Reddy, with her highlighted, amorphous tresses tumbling down giving her an off-beat appearance with kohl-rimmed smudgy eyeshadow and titian-matt lips.
Esha Gupta made our eyes pop out as she took over the ramp for Arpita Mehta, her presence – from her hair and makeup to the attitude – added to her outfit. She walked down looking like a Victoria Secrets’ angel with her chestnut coloured waves – parted at the center – being swept by the wind. Her makeup was kept minimum to go with the earthy yet feminine outfit, with a bright – easy going flick eyeliner – look on the eyes but bold and profound brows and matt nude lips.
Soha Ali Khan
Think fusion, when the newly wed actress takes over the ramp for Babita Malkani, with a crop top and skirt combined with a maang tika as her hair adornment. She had her long, aphotic tresses parted in the center and twisted on the sides to create a perfect place for the ornament, her face, otherwise, was kept natural with bare-minimum makeup; with a just a small touch of eyeliner to enhance the overall appearance.
Steering away from her girl-next-door look, Kapoor took over the ramp for a high street brand in a cool and peppy look. With her luscious tresses slicked back in a tight ponytail teamed up with sexy smoky eyes and coquettish bubblegum pink lips to add to the spirited atmosphere.
Aditi Rao Hydari
This prima donna, anyways has those perfect vintage features with a 20s Cupid’s bow and big, bright eyes. She took it to a whole new level when she walked the ramp for Archana Rao sans her long hair – in a 50s look – with an amorphous bob with a thick curtain of eyebrow grazing bangs and to complement the vintage feel she went in for a bright, matt cerise pout with rosy cheeks.
For Anamika Khanna, Kapoor stepped out with bold and daring look.Sleek and wet hair parted at the side and to add to the don’t-mess-with-me she went in for thickly lined, dark eyes and oxblood lips that completed her vixen look.
