Bollywood Style : Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2013

In an exciting turn of events at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/ Resort 2013, Bollywood emerged as the latest trend of the season. Designers at the fashion week pulled all the stops and gave us the starriest fashion gathering yet.

From Manish Malhotra to Shehla Khan and Payal Singhal, actors and actresses made appearances for a number of designers. Not to mention the parade of B-Town’s finest that took to the ramp for Vikram Phadnis.

Parineeti Chopra walked hand in hand with Masaba Gupta, her hair piled up on her head in a top bun paired with a bouffant. A down-to-earth look that complemented the actress’s personality, don’t you think? Also seen in a high updo was Bipasha Basu for Shantanu and Nikhil – hers was a sleek one with her hair secured way, way high on her head and bangs framing her face.

Absolutely ethereal was Karisma Kapoor, who was the showstopper for Shehlaa by Shehla Khan. Her hair in a half-up-half-down style that was topped by a bouffant and curled at the ends, she looked every bit the Bollywood princess.

We also loved the sleek bun Kareena Kapoor sported for Namrata Joshipura. The showstopper for the Grand Finale, Kapoor had her hair parted neatly to the side and secured in a low bun.

Also seen on the runway were Diana Hayden for Sounia Gohil - her hair in a messy updo that went perfectly with the romantic vibe that her outfit exuded – and Aditi Rao Hydari for Payal Singhal. The latter accompanied Singhal in a festive Indian ensemble, her long, below-the-waist curly hair only accentuating the slightly traditionalist standpoint of the design.

Bollywood’s favourite designer Manish Malhotra brought out the big guns with actresses Priyanka Chopra, Kajol and even Karisma Kapoor joining him on the runway. Both Kajol and Karisma showed off sheer shoulders, one with her hair in an updo and one with a ponytail. Showstopper Priyanka Chopra, on the other hand, made an impact in a bright saree with her long her swept to one side, showing off her almost backless blouse.

Vikram Phadnis’ show read like a who’s who of the film fraternity, with everyone from Arbaaz Khan, Malaika Arora and their son to Jeetendra and daughter Ekta Kapoor gracing the runway alongside activists, in support of the Swades foundation. We loved Ileana D’Cruz, Dia Mirza and Neha Dhupia’s appearances - while Ileana had her hair in a half bouffant with the rest swept over one shoulder, Dia Mirza and Neha Dhupia went for a more traditional look with curls and pinned back hair.
