Some of Bollywood’s unexpected names turned showstoppers at the week-long fashion do

From B-town’s glam Heroine Kareena Kapoor to filmmaker Karan Johar and many others watched the happenings at Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2012 from the sides of the ramp. But when it came to sashaying on the fashion slope, we saw some unlikeliest of names from the filmi world.

Abhay Deol’s live-in girlfriend Preeti Desai, who is Miss Great Britain 2006 and now Bollywood actor, turned showstopper for Anita Dongre. The designer dressed the 5 feet, 8 inches former beauty queen in traditional Indian garb for the show. Preeti made a beautiful picture in a gorgeous white lehenga choli with silver embellishments, and minimal hairstyling and makeup.

Ekk Deewana Tha leading lady Amy Jackson, also famous as Prateik’s co-star-turned-girlfriend, walked the ramp for designer Pernia Qureshi. This Brit babe too appeared in a desi avatar. Amy wore a black sari with a wine-coloured border, teamed with an exquisite collared blouse.

But the one true filmi showstopper at the event was the 57-year-old Kirron Kher. The actor, known for her fabulous performances and gorgeous saris, walked the ramp wearing an ivory brocade sari with traditional rudraksh print, teamed with a pink Kanjeevaram blouse.

The other Bollywood showstoppers were Gangs of Wasseypur fame Richa Chadda (for designer duo Debarun Vaishali S) and Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 5 contestant and Bollywood actor Isha Sharvani (for Sonaakshi Raaj).

So far the lesser known B-towners are making heads turn at LFW. Wethinks that’ll help build excitement for the grand finale – Bollywood’s reigning queen Kareena Kapoor will make a Gothic-inspired appearance on the ramp for designer Kallol Datta, and not her favourite Manish Malhotra.
