Rediff.com’s Rajesh Karkera aims his cameras at the models as they get ready to walk the ramp. 

Nothing can possibly communicate the hectic activity that goes on behind the scenes of a fashion show. The make-up, the hair, the styling… and the sudden realisation just before you step on to the runway that something needs to be tucked in properly, a knot tied better, a pin readjusted…

For the last four days, Rajesh Karkera has bringing to us snapshots from the Lakme Fashion Week. As he goes around to the wings, he aims his camera at the beauties just before they are about to step on to the runway.

Olha Torovik is a spunky young lady who speaks her mind and seems rather confounded by the celebrity culture that exists in the Indian fashion scene.

It has been a pleasure seeing Deepti Gujral back on the runway at Lakme Fashion Week.

She seemed rather shocked by the fact that so many people were helping her get ready. (We kinda thought she’d be used to this by now!

One of the first things that strikes you about Anastasia Kuznetsova is the fact that she is calm, composed, almost meditative as she sits before the mirror to get ready for the show.

Erica Packard is no stranger to fame. She’s been around for a while, been part of runway shows and photo shoots.

Currently datingactor Siddhanth Kapoor, Packard comes across as being independent and one with few hang-ups. When she doesn’t spot anyone to do her lips, she does them herself.

Confessedly, she one of our favourite models at the Lakme Fashion Week. In spite of all the pressures of being a fashion week model, Alesia Raut is always at ease, warm and forthcoming.

Much like Alesia Raut, Carol Gracias is a veteran model who is also cheerful at most times. This, unfortunately, isn’t one of those times.

Minutes before this picture was taken, Gracias was rather upset with a photographer for taking pictures of a model while she was changing! She awaits her turn in the wings just before Shilpa Chavan’s show on Day Two of the Lakme Fashion Week. (You can see Shilpa’s designs here!)
