There’s nothing better than having your girl friends around at each milestone in your life, which is why I’m sure Shehla Khan was twice as happy at the launch of her store ‘Shehlaa’, in Colaba. Not only has she put together a collection that is true to her design sensibilities, but she had BFF Sonam Kapoor there to support and give her a nudge of confidence.

The shy Shehla has a penchant for all things romantic, luxurious and feminine, which reflects in the store’s interiors and also the collection. Her entire collection is rich in its fabric choices and surface ornamentation. In fact, the sari Sonam is wearing, has shadow embroidery on it, something we don’t see very often nowadays. Shehla loves to bring back traditional techniques and embroidery on her clothes, and she does it by always keeping in mind her fresh marshmallow-hued colour palette.

With the trend setting actress in the store, I thought it’d be great for her to give us her top 5 picks from the Shehlaa collection. Sonam, along with Shehla, went through the all the clothes in the store to pick out their favorite 5 looks, just for you readers! Our favorite of the bunch, is the satin skirt and blouse with silver embellishment (numero 3); it’s that perfect amount of glam and sex appeal that we at the MissMalini.com office adore. Which is your favorite? Have a look and tell us in the comments.

Psst: Sonam tells us that she took inspiration from Sharmila Tagore for her make up – doesn’t she look gorgeous?!
