The grand finale of the Lakme Fashion week (LFW) 2014 was a memorable one as actress Kareena Kapoor who was the showstopper for designer Manish Malhotra looked classy and elegant in his creation. Manish’s collection raised the glamour quotient of every attire with blings and glitter. Kareena donned a metallic purple lehenga with grey shades and a complete diamond and silver studded open jacket which she teamed with a nettet chunni.
The runway at the show was decorated with flowers. Many celebrities, including including Kajol, Karan Johar, Huma Quereshi, Karishma Kapoor, Richa Chadda, Juhi Chawla, Dino Morea, Sridevi, Boney Kapoor, and Gauri Shinde, attended the fashion show. She said: “I wear what I feel comfortable in. I think Manish is a gift to the film industry and I feel comfortable in all his outfits.” The bridal wears were a blend of long gowns, skirts, saris, lehenga cholis with heavy diamond studded sequence and embroidery work.
Manish Malhotra said: “It’s been a long journey. She is my sister. She has been the coolest bride I have ever dressed so Lakme can’t have a better show stopper than Kareena.” On Kareena’s outfit, Manish said: “I have used two versions of grey. I want this grey to be popular this winter.” Actor Varun Dhawan kick-started the grand finale by walking the ramp wearing black pants and jute jacket which had a velvet red Chinese collar.
