Bollywood stars Neetu Chandra and Shriya Saran were the showstoppers at designer Neeta Lulla’s closing show, Opulence, at the first and very successful Chennai International Fashion Week. Neetu Lulla’s show lived up to its name with a rich mixture of golden and red ghagra-cholis and salwar-kameezes.
Top southern actress Tamannaah, still celebrating her recent birthday, was also present in the audience to cheer on her friend Shriya. The previous night, she had set the ramp on fire for designer Nishka Lulla. Tamannaah has had an outstanding year with hits Kanden Kadhalai, Ayan and Padikathavan in Tamil and Konchem Ishtam and Konchenga Kashtamga in Telugu. 2010 is also shaping up well with an appearance opposite Karthi in Paiyya, Jayam Ravi in Thillalangadi and Vijay in Sura.
New star Sharmila was also there to support her friend Neetu. “It’s a special day for her and I’m going there to support her as she was my first designer for my debut movie,” she explained.
Neetu Lulla recently launched the Go Green calendar which shows Neha Dhupia wearing a range of her creations in green in order to promote businesses linked to the green revolution. In one shot, the daring Neha appears topless.
