Walking and walking and walking was Sonakshi Sinha, showstopper at Monisha Jaising’s opening show for Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2017 at the spectacular offsite venue: on board Costa neoClassica docked in Mumbai.
Yes, it was a long 360-degree ramp with Sonakshi made to walk up and down, round and round. But all that legwork did not take a toll on her as she was smiling, as were the assorted models, some established and others fresh and new and raring to go on the ramp – any ramp.
Sonakshi Sinha was shining in a sunset orange, waist-clinching, one-shoulder structured gown with a flirty hemline and an exaggerated voluminous trail. Word has it that it was inspired by the glow of the sunset.
Sexy swimwear, glamorous cocktail creations, silver micro-minis, pre-stitched figure-hugging cocktail saris, billowy skirts, body-contouring bodices, hues of dramatic black, gleaming gold, sedate grey, pristine white, rose pink, rose tan, fiery red, vibrant orange and fabulous fuchsia were on view.
And before and after the show it was time for champagne. Yes, the cheer was on!
