She has been in the industry for more than two decades. But this will be the first time Anita Dongre will close the Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2017.

On February 5, Dongre will showcase her 'unbleached and undyed' collection themed 'Liquid Gold'.

The show itself will be special also because of its unique venue -- Bandra fort in Mumbai.

It will be interesting to see how the ace courtier transforms the venue into a ramp.

But the big question is -- will Kareena Kapoor, Lakme's brand ambassador be the showstopper?

The Manchester United player recently launched his Three Stripes collection in association with Adidas featuring bomber jackets, hats and football accessories.

Within days of launching the collection, the French sport star announced to his fans that the collection was sold out.

One of his posts on Instagram confirmed: 'Dope! My PP Line almost sold out in a day.'

Bella Hadid, who split from The Weeknd aka Abel Tesfaye not long ago, has hurt feelings after finding out that the singer is currently dating Selena Gomez.

"Bella and Abel's split wasn't dramatic, but of course she's hurt and pissed that he's moved on so quickly with Selena," an insider revealed to People magazine, adding that it was the 20 year old supermodel who ultimately pulled the plug on the duo's romance.

A day after Gomez and Tesfaye were spotted kissing while on a date in Los Angeles, Hadid unfollowed the 24 year old singer on Instagram and later posted a photo of herself showing the middle finger.

However, multiple sources tells that Gomez and Hadid were never close friends and there was no betrayal involved.

"They've always been friendly, but they're not best friends," says one source while another adds, "Selena knows Bella through Taylor [Swift] and her squad, but they've never been close."

According to the pal, the Same Old Love singer met the 26-year-old only a while ago and "connected" over music.

In 2016, Nadia Aboulhosn had showcased some of her works at the New York Fashion Week along with Addition Elle.

Seems like the confidence on the runway has clearly rubbed off in a positive way.

The curvy model has announced her own label Nadia Aboulhosn that features dresses, skirts, bodysuits and crop tops.

In an interview to Allure (external link), the model turned designer explained her choice of neutral colours for her label.

'I wanted women, especially bigger sizes, to have more options than black. I wanted people to step outside (their) comfort zones. I'll definitely be introducing black pieces soon but for the beginning I wanted something different.'
