I have noticed that there is always a curiosity on the celebrity strutting down the ramp for a particular designer. Often the celebrity is referred to as the SHOWSTOPPER. But in actual fashion parlance, showstopper is not a celebrity but rather the designer’s BEST GARMENT worn by a model or a celebrity.
Now that we are done with that gyaan, here are some showstoppers from the recently concluded BMW India Bridal Fashion Week 2014 at DLF Emporio.
Shraddha Kapoor sashayed the ramp for the fashion czar, JJ Valaya. She donned an extraordinary ensemble from the designer’s ‘The Nautch of Fez’ collection which combined the energy of his constant inspirations, Morocco and India.
Doing justice to Jyotsna Tiwari’s romantic collection ‘Under the Stars’ and playing the unconventional yet coy bride, the stunning Esha Gupta walked down the ramp adorned in bridal finery designed for the most important day in a girl’s life.
Raghavendra Rathore’s show was closed by two celebrity show stoppers-dazzling Aditi Rao Hydari who wore a classic ivory saree with a bandh gala jacket and B-town’s new face, Ali Afzal from the fame Bobby Jasoos who looked dapper in a pink and beige ensemble.
One of India’s foremost couturiers, Suneet Varma ‘s show presented by BMW saw actress Kangana Ranaut sauntering down the ramp wearing a mesmerizing and timeless trousseau fit for a princess from his regal collection straight from Shekhawati, Rajasthan.
The cynosure for all eyes on the red carpet ramp was showstopper Nargis Fakhri who dazzled in a flamboyant black gown, complemented with an opulent statement choker by Azva at the Azva Show.
