New Delhi, July 21 : A live performance by singer Kamaal Khan on popular Bollywood tracks, decor reflecting the golden period and actresses Bipasha Basu and Chitrangada Singh walking the ramp in true diva style, the grand finale by Shree Raj Mahal Jewellers as a part of India Couture Week 2014 turned out to be a complete Bollywood affair.
While Chitrangada started the show in black voluminous Gauri and Nainika gown accessorising it well with statement neckpiece, Bipasha looked no less than a bride in designer Rohit Bal lehanga and matching jewellery.
"Whenever I wear Indian outfit, I make sure of accessorising it well with jewellery and today I am feeling like a queen. I started my career as a model and it's great to come back to Delhi again and walk on ramp. It was such a great welcome that I felt emotional,a Bipasha shared after the show.
As the actress was looking no less than a bride, it was obvious for her to get bombarded with questions on wedding.
Asked that whether she would like to adorn the similar heavy pieces on her wedding day, she said: "I would love to look like a Bengali bride and I don't mind if I get the chance to wear such beautiful looking pieces. Afterall, every bride wants to look her best on the most special day of her life."
Chitrangada, on the other hand, took her inspiration from the famous Hollywood actress Marilyn Monroe when she walked down the ramp dancing and smiling.
"Yes I tried to replicate her (Marilyn) but it is not easy . Doing Marilyn is not easy for anyone. She was someone who has inspired many but I tried to give my best," she said.
The show was mix of jewelleries from the Svara and Sondaraya collection of the title sponsor of the couture week. Pieces inlaid in gold and diamonds embellished with precious stones such as emeralds, rubies and pearls dominated the range of designs.
The Svara collection comprises of gold and polka jewellery embellished in precious stones such as emerald and ruby while Sondaraya was a variable mix of traditional motifs and contemporary styles in diamond jewellery.
Also seen walking the ramp was filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar and model-actor Muzammil Ibrahim.
One of the highpoint of the show was live singing by Kamaal Khan who sung tracks including "Afrin" , "Ishq Sufiana" and "Mein tenu samjhawan". Though it was difficult for people sitting in Main Show Area (MSA) to see him but the voice certainly made of them Asing with him.
