Shilpa Shetty and Sushmita Sen open Lakme Fashion Week 2014
Bollywood divas Shilpa Shetty and Sushmita Sen walked the ramp in their sensuous outfits on the opening day of Lakme Fashion Week (LFW) in India's showbiz capital Mumbai.
Former Miss Universe, Sen, looked stunning in a black gown with a transparent back as the showstopper for designer Aman Aggarwal.
Sen credited her exotic appearance to Aggarwal and said she felt sexy and eloquent in the dress.
"At the end of the day, I think, being a woman is about being comfortable in your skin, is being powerful in your expression, and I think I couldn't have had a more powerful showstopper than the one I had tonight; because all of those logistics put together, sexy is what sexy does and I think he did that with his collection. Thank you very much for having me," said Sen.
Aggarwal's collection portrayed tribal artifacts and incorporated ethnic weaving techniques, stripped tattoos and structured jewelry.
On the other hand, Shilpa Shetty, looked elegant in a black slinky gown with huge prints and a draped dupatta. She grooved on the ramp with other models for fashion designer Masaba Gupta's collection themed 'wanderess'.
"I just loved the title 'wanderess', which I actually am at heart. So, I really hope I have done justice to your outfit and I loved the collection," said Shetty.
The theme 'wanderess' is inspired by renowned poet Roman Payne's character Saskia. The line of garments was feisty, adventurous yet delicate and with a vintage feel.
Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2014 will conclude on August 24.
