Now how many of us would be able slip into a skirt the size of a tent, a full-sleeved top with its shoulders slouching off and a jacket with faux feather trimmings and yet look like a million bucks? Actually, make that a hundred million bucks. Not everyone’s cup of tea, right?
But nothing is too difficult for Kangana Ranaut.
The actor, who opened Lakme Fashion Week, in the said, intimidating Tarun Tahiliani ensemble, displayed what showstoppers are made of.
Not only did the ‘Tanu Weds Manu’ star seem completely at ease in that satin whirlpool she was in, she strutted the ramp oozing confidence and even managed to pose for a selfie with the designer.
Reports suggest that the ensemble was paying ode to sculptor Mrinalini Mukherjee’s life size hemp and cast bronze sculptures depicting fertility.
Tahiliani collaborated with Indian-American fusion singer Isheeta Ganguly who sang ‘Bande Mataram’ while Ranaut walked the ramp.
Kangana had walked the ramp for the designer in 2014. There were reports of dispute last year when the actor claimed her name was misused by the event’s organisers even though she had allegedly refused to walk the ramp.
This year, she returned to make quite a statement on the ramp, raising the bar for the rest of the show. LFW’s Autumn Winter is underway at the St Regis in Mumbai, and will showcase the work of 92 designers this year.
Here’s a look at the rest of Tarun Tahiliani’s collection for LFW 2016:
