For the opening show by Tarun Tahiliani, a veteran in the Indian fashion couture market, Aditi Rao Hydari exuded elegance in a muted but Swarovski-embellished lehenga with a gossamer veil, which the designer held as she walked to take a final bow (All pics/ Pallav Paliwal)
Aditi Rao Hydari praised Tahiliani's knack for designs which are rooted in heritage and tradition, yet modern
"It really makes a huge difference when you have an airy, light and gossamer veil... A bride should be able to get up and dance like a free spirit. They want to enjoy their special day and not be weighed down by kilos (weight of the clothes)," the Padmaavat actress told the media post the show
Kangana Ranaut closed the show for Anju Modi with an effortless and confident walk across the ramp in a jewel-tone, Victorian era inspired ensemble from the line 'A Maiden's Prayer'. She wore an embroidered cape which stole the limelight as she walked to the tunes of Beethoven's Swan Song.
Describing her outfit and look after the show, Kangana Ranaut told the media, "This is a a Victorian cape, and I have taken the look very seriously. I am in full character, and I feel I can break into a dialogue."
Kangana Ranaut said Modi's designers are surreal and "the choreography and the set design were "enchanting"
Kangana Ranaut said, "I had fun because it had so much to do with glamour. I felt a little choked that it was so romantic, but painfully romantic. So I enjoyed it."
Aditi Rao Hydari and Kangana Ranaut added Bollywood glamour to bespoke couture ensembles of designers Tarun Tahiliani and Anju Modi respectively on the opening night of the India Couture Week (ICW) in New Delhi on Wednesday. We have pictures
