The Gangs of Wasseypur actor sizzled in black on the ramp for designer Atithi Gupta
If she wowed moviebuffs with her performance in Gangs of Wasseypur (GOW), actor Huma Qureshi impressed fashionistas when she walked the ramp on Tuesday in a black dress as showstopper for Atithi Gupta at the fifth and final day of Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2012.
When asked why she chose Huma as her showstopper, Gupta explained, “In her forthcoming movie Gangs of Wasseypur 2, Huma plays the love interest of a gangster. There is lot of drama to her character in the film, and she tries to imitate Madhuri Dixit. I thought this would add drama to my garments and that she would do justice.”
The music of Gangs of Wasseypur 2 played in the background when Huma sashayed down the ramp and it was a perfect promotion for part two of the film, releasing Wednesday. Director Anurag Kashyap, who showed up a little late, was there to cheer for his actor. For Huma, Gupta created a dress with uneven drape hemline and teamed it up with golden zardosi sleeveless shrug. “I work on detailing. My garments look simple but there is lot of texturing and gathering. I wanted to keep it minimalistic, stylish and different,” said the designer. Click for LFW pictures below
