LAKME FASHION WEEK DAY 5
The penultimate day of Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort’19 had more showstoppers than we could count, and while some of us were busy trying to #KeepUpWithTheKapoors, the likes of Lisa Haydon, Aditi Rao Hydari, Soha Ali Khan, K-Jo, and apna Gully Boy, Ranveer Singh had the crowd in rapture with his badass rapping.
The older sister K sashayed down the ramp in a beautiful, but understated gold, off-white and black Anarkali, which flaunted not one, but two chunnis, and was the star of Balana’s ‘Maya’. Asymmetric geometric prints on halter blouses, the dhoti style sari, cropped tops and skirts, were rounded off by block-printed heels and mojdis.

Neha Agarwal showcased gorjus bridalwear in everything from block prints to zardozi, and had dimple-cheeked Soha Ali Khan in a floor-sweeping kurta+worn with pants, in an ode to Raza, and his brilliant paintings. Fur-trimmed lehengas and pastel saris had the audience in raptures #OurHeartIsWhereTheArtIs
SHEHLAA by SHEHLA KHAN
Khan’s 80s-inspired shoulder-padded sheer lehengas with bold embroidery in gold accents had us fall for the charms of celebs Bhumi Pednekar and Isabella Kaif. While K-jo was quite a sight in an on-trend checkered embroidered blazer and pants #WeWereStarstruck
The Bhavana Pandey, Nandita Mahtani and Dolly Sidhwani-owned, Love Gen did a #FabCollab with the eagerly-awaited film, Gully Boy, and had their own interesting spin on streetwear-meets-athleisure. The highlight of course had to be saada Singh rappin’ it out in HTT black that flaunted ‘Gully Boy’ down both sides.
SHANTANU AND NIKHIL
The Grand Finale was of course none other than the talented brothers-in-arms, Shantanu & Nikhil Mehra, who we are sure managed to recruit many a fan (we kid), for their ‘Recruit’ collection. The younger Kapoor sister strutted her stuff in all black.
