The firmament of Bollywood stars were out in force at India Couture Week in Mumbai. Genelia D’Souza and Suzanne Khan were on hand for jewellery designer Farah Ali Khan and her collection Cascades, whilst star of yesteryear, Sridevi, walked in support of her good friend Queenie Dhody. “I truly felt fabulous on the ramp,” she said, “I love Queenie’s jewellery, its aesthetic appeal and style appeals to me being one of a kind handcrafted pieces.”
Priyanka Chopra with short hair and blue streaks was cheerleading for Manish Malhotra’s bridal collection. Later, Priyanka’s latest co-star, Uday Chopra, tweeted “It was great seeing Manish Malhotra’s show last night. It was awesome. I caught up with some friends too – a fun night.” Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan strode along the runway for Manish.
Katrina Kaif walked the ramp for Wanted star Salman Khan wearing a screenprinted dress designed especially for her. Salman’s Being Human collection also saw stars Ajay Devgan, Akshay Kumar, Sanjay Dutt, Govinda, Saif Ali Khan and Aamir Khan walking the ramp in aid of the Salman Khan Foundation. With ten A-listers on the ramp, there weren’t many left in the audience but it did manage to attract Preity Zinta, Amrita Arora, Malaika Arora Khan, Twinkle Khanna, Helen and Sushmita Sen.
All the attention now shifts to Karan Johar’s Rock Star collection which will feature Shahrukh Khan, Imran Khan and Ranbir Kapoor. The week has turned into the world’s first competitive fashion event with Karan hoping to outdo Salman and the glitterati agog at the luxury on display.
