Mumbai, Aug 24 : She always looks chic and stylish and model-turned-actress Priyanka Chopra's look wowed when she hit the ramp Sunday in Varun Bahl's 'comfortable' attire as his showstopper at the Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2014.
The former beauty queen sashayed on the runway in black palazzo pants, crop top in the same shade teamed with sliver sequenced jacket. With a stylish hairdo and a heavy neckpiece, the actress looked her absolute.
"As per my fashion sense, I like clothes that are normal. I get really shy with fancy clothes and this outfit is very wearable and comfortable," said the actress sharing her taste and choice in clothes.
But the well-dressed and stylish Priyanka doesn't mind shedding her glamorous avatar for a meaty role - she did it successfully to play an autistic girl in "Barfi" and now she has done it for "Mary Kom", a biopic which will see her playing Olympic bronze medallist boxer M.C. Mary Kom.
Going back to Bahl's collection, it celebrates modern silhouettes - jackets, dresses, trousers, skirts, and shirts by blending them seamlessly with contemporary Indian embroideries and hand-done techniques.
There is a balance between structure and flow in his creation.
"With winter on my mind, I created biker jackets lending them a twist of my own. One such interesting piece would by my 'gota' jacket achieved by weaving gota strips together," said the designer who has discerning eye for detail.
"I have included the white shirt as one of my key pieces," added Bahl who is known for working intuitively.
When it came to colour palette, he zeroed on black, silver, grey, ivory, beige, pale pink, and powder blue. In terms of fabrics, he used trademark silk, tulle, cotton, crepe and duchesse-satin.
