Esha Gupta turns coy bride on ramp
She has scorched the big screen with her bold avatars in films like "Jannat 2" and "Raaz 3D", but Esha Gupta gave her "sexy" look a miss to walk as a coy bride at the BMW India Bridal Fashion Week (IBFW) Sunday night.
As the showstopper for designer Jyotsna Tiwari, Esha mesmerized audiences as she took to the ramp looking ethereal in a powder pink voluminous tulle gown with a heavily but beautifully embellished bodice.
"A lot of people relate to me with the 'sexy' image, but I totally loved how Jyotsna presented me in this simple and elegant outfit in such a romantic setting," Esha told reporters here post the show.
Romantic it was -- the ramp was lined by artificial trees with pink and white flowers adorning the nude branches. It lent a pleasing look to the show, which was replete with bespoke ensembles in a soft colour palette ranging from peach, pink, red, beige, turquoise and orange.
From pre-draped saris to evening gowns, lehengas and voluminous anarkalis, treated with delicate and intricate embroidery -- the line, titled "Under The Stars", is not over-the-top and fitted the "wearable" category to the hilt .
Ladies swooned over the flattering designs, suitable for bridal as well as pre-bridal occasions.
Adding to the romanticism were remixed versions of evergreen Hindi songs like "Khoya khoya chand" and "Jaane kya tune kahi". The audiences loved it.
Esha, who started her career as a model in Delhi before she became a big name in the fashion world and before she plunged into Bollywood, was happy to be on the ramp.
"If you get a designer who is ready to explain the concept and music as clearly as Jyotsna did for me, it is always great," Esha said, proudly showing off her gown, which made her feel "sweet, young and innocent".
