Bollywood star Kareena Kapoor was excited to return to the ramp as the showstopper for designer Anamika Khanna at the Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2018 grand finale on February 4.
The actor had last catwalked at LFW for designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee, when she was expecting her now one-year-old son, Taimur Ali Khan. She took a break last year, when the Manish Malhotra grand finale was showstopped by Jacqueline Fernandez and Aditya Roy Kapoor.
Kareena, who will next be seen in Veere Di Wedding, said, "This collection is rockeshy, glamorous ready to wear. Anamika is herself so stylish that she has truly outdone herself."
Khanna, whose collection was titled 'Reinventing Nudes', added, "When the forces of fashion and Bollywood team up, they bring out the best in each other. This is a nation of Bollywood. The stars largely define what the nation wears."
Exactly 24 hours before Kareena took to the ramp, it was Saif Ali Khan's turn.
The actor closed Day 4 of LFW SR18 for designer duo Shantanu-Nikhil.
The designers said they tried to dress up Saif in a way where he gets to travel back to the days of his film Dil Chahta Hai. Shantanu said they tried to show the new India from the eyes of a millennial, quite like Saif's character, Sameer, from the cult coming-of-age film.
After the show, Saif said, 'This was a last-minute thing, but I was so excited.'
He added, 'I don't think of myself as a showstopper, I get really conscious. But I had great fun. I thought it was really cool.'
Shantanu and Nikhil's 'Tribe: The India Story' caters to both women and men, and Shantanu said the collection was a narration of the Indian philosophy of 'valour and egalitarianism'.
Saif said, 'It's a look in the past and also a look into the future. A good thing about our lives, heritage, clothes. They are simple clothes. Ostentatiousness is out, austerity is in.'
