I can see why this was the most awaited show at HDIL India Couture Week 2010 and Salman Khan didn’t disappoint (how could he, he’s Robinhood Pandey after all!) the “Couture for a Cause – Being Human Show” featured a glorious bevvy of Bollywood’s hottest belles (with whom of course, Salman has also starred in some super hit flicks*.) Here’s a rundown of all the Fashion, Bollywood and Bling that hit the stage at all at once last night; enough to make any Bollywood junkies brain explode lol!
P.S. The finale was reserved for the eight Bollywood Divas who strutted their stuff down the runway wearing denims and Being Human Tees in neon shades which Salman launched along with his signature watches at the show.
*Oooh idea! Lets test your Bollywood brains; name as many movies as you possibly can in the comments below (without Googling them) starring Salman Khan and the Bollywood bombshells from couture week. I’ll randomly pick a winner and send you a DVD of Salman & the starlet combo I like best! xoxo
The Being Human extravaganza was divided into several colorful decades of fashion and film designed by Manish Malhotra, Raakesh Agarvwal, Gauri & Nainika, Sunaina Puri and Rohit & Rahul.
Starting with the Roaring 20s: Preity Zinta opened the show in a flouncy black-belted glittering dress teamed with a wide brim matching hat and fabulous geometric shape diamond earrings crafted by Rosy Blue.
Onto the Tantalizing 30s: Katrina Kaif in a deep red slinky velvet gown accessorized by a solitaire diamond and ruby necklace with pearl drops crafted by Shrenuj and diamond and ruby drop earrings by Rosy Blue.
For the fantastic 40s: (in the age of qawalis and anarkali) Rani Mukherjee whisked her way down the ramp in a white kalidar lehenga with black velvet embroidered border and a rich long sleeved black velvet zardozi embellished blouse. Her jewellery included the 65.9 carat haat phool designed by Mona Mehta and diamond and pearl drop earrings both crafted by Rosy Blue.
For the Flirty 50s: Bipasha Basu appeared in a sultry black halter gown and a dramatic gold satin cape with a diamond wave cuff from Rosy Blue and two diamond geometric rings designed by Dimexon.
During the Sexy 60s: (the era of Elvis Presley and Shammi Kapoor) the rocking music set the mood for Karisma Kapoor who swung down the catwalk in a gorgeous red hot net sari with glittering silver zardozi border displaying a diamond and ruby choker by Rosy Blue with diamond and pearl long drop earrings by Shrenuj.
The Enlightened 80s: Priyanka Chopra in a cute white and black layered net mini dress with wide black belt and corset blouse wearing a diamond neck piece by Rosy Blue.
The Naughty 90s: an era when women wanted to break free as exemplified by Kareena Kapoor’s entry in a black satin tuxedo suit over a glittering black bustier and a string of solitaires by Shrenuj.
And finally taking a bow, Salman Khan showed up in very red denims teamed with a black velvet jacket with red trim down the sleeves and neck designed by Arjun Khanna. He made an expectedly dramatic entry to the throbbing beats of the Sachin Mondal Band from Kolkata (finalists in the India’s Got Talent Contest). Ta dah!
