Who said only hot female models rule the world of fashion?

Some of India's top kabaddi players -- who are no less stylish -- totally owned a fashion event as they turned muses to designers.

Lakme Fashion Week hosted an exclusive festive showcase by select menswear designers at Mumbai's leading multi-designer retail store Ensemble.  A few players from the Indian Kabaddi team turned models for designers Gaurav Khanijo, Huemn, Antar Agni, Tarun Tahiliani and Sahil Aneja.

Take a look!
