From Katy Perry to Camila Alves, a host of Hollywood celebs are passing up the best offerings of world-famous luxury fashion houses in favour of Indian labels like Falguni & Shane Peacock and Manish Arora.

It's always a matter of pride when a well-known celebrity from the other side of the pond crosses over, sartorially speaking -- and even more so when it's not necessarily ethnicwear they're after.

Now that gowns by Gaurav Gupta and Alpana-Neeraj are making their way onto the same red carpets as creations by Givenchy and Armani, we bring you a glimpse of some memorable Indian designs spotted on international stars, both recently and from a few years ago.

Paris Hilton in Falguni & Shane Peacock

The reality TV star is a big fan of the duo and her latest outing in one of their signature designs was at amfAR's 20th Annual Cinema Against AIDS during the Cannes Film Festival last month.

Now not everyone is a fan of Paris, but you have to admit, she looks quite stunning in this custom baby pink gown with feather embellishments at the bottom.

The quirky popster has an association with Arora that goes way back (she was first spotted performing in one of his ensembles back in 2008). So it's hardly surprising that Katy chose to attend the Echo Awards in Berlin wearing one of his designs for Paco Rabanne -- a pink mirrored mini -- in March last year. After all, Arora was artistic director at the Spanish fashion house between 2011 and 2012.

This see-through lace number certainly turned heads at the Brit Awards in February 2012. It's a good thing the English singer doesn't mind baring her bod -- we don't see any of our B-Town divas donning anything similar anytime soon!
