Kareena Kapoor dazzles on runway as Lakme Fashion Week 2015

Bollywood actors sashayed down the ramp as the fifteenth edition of Lakme Fashion Week (LFW) summer-resort 2015 marked its grand finale on Sunday. LFW, one of the prestigious fashion weeks of India, is an annual event held in the country`s showbiz capital, Mumbai.

The event was attended by who's who of Bollywood, including Deepika Padukone, Karisma Kapoor, Jacqueline Fernandez, Sonakshi Sinha, Simi Garewal and Saif Ali Khan, who came to cheer for their favourite designers.

Sticking to the 'sculpt' theme, designer Anamika Khanna made her showstopper and Bollywood diva, Kareena Kapoor Khan, don black saree draped toga dress with a white embroidered blouse. Kapoor beautifully complemented her dress with winged eyes, a ponytail, black strap heels and a patterned clutch.

Veteran Bollywood actress Shabana Azmi, also set the ramp ablaze in a dazzling Banarasi red sari and a turquoise blouse, a creation of actress-cum-designer Mandira Bedi.

Bedi said her collection comprised of summer colours such as oranges, pinks, yellows, red and purple. "Every saree has a touch of Banaras. The saree that Shabana is wearing is the booty that I had in today. Every saree had something of Banaras and as far as showstoppers are concerned, last year I made my mother walked, and for me this time it is my absolute privilege that I have got Shabana, the ultimate woman of substance, walking for me and looking so graceful, so lovely carrying off one of my sarees so beautifully," said Bedi.

Azmi said there was no other outfit like the saree. The yesteryear actress walked the ramp with a poetry recited by her husband and veteran lyricist Javed Akhtar, playing in the background.

Bollywood actor, Rajkumar Rao, showcased designer Kunal Anil Tanna's collection - inspired by Japanese culture and cheerful colours like cherry, plum, burgundy and white.

"This is my first time I debuted as a showstopper. When he asked me to do this for him, I was little scared but I think once I reached here, I was there back stage and there was so much energy and passion and everybody was running, I was thrilled. I was excited being there. Once I was on the ramp, I totally enjoyed it," said Rao.

Model-turned actress, Chitrangada Singh, also walked for the ramp for ace designer Tarun Tahiliyani displaying his funky collection.

The event had begun on March 18 and the five-day long event saw many seasoned and young designers showcase their collection.
