Shilpa walked the ramp in a figure flattering cut-out gown with a dupatta draped over it while Sush stunned us in a sheer black striped gown with puffed flare details at the waist as she glided down the runway with oomph.

“At the end of the day, I think, being a woman is about being comfortable in your skin, being powerful in your expression, and I could not have had a more powerful showstopper than the one I had tonight because all of those logistics put together, sexy is what sexy does,” said a glowing Sushmita.
