Leading ladies from Bollywood expressed their support to save the girl child and upheld the cause of women empowerment through a fashion show in Mumbai.

It was a fashion event with a cause.

Stars and models walked the runway for Manish Malhotra to show support for the Indian girl child.

It was an action-packed evening: women achievers were honoured, panellists discussed the sorry state of affairs for the girl child in India -- more about that here -- and celebrities walked the ramp.

We start out with Preity Zinta, who shashayed down the ramp in a lovely peacock green lehenga designed by Manish Malhotra.
