Kareena RULES the Ramp!

Last updated on: October 09, 2021 16:45 IST

As Kareena Kapoor Khan prepares to close another season of FDCI x Lakme Fashion Week, Anita Aikara/ retraces her fashion week journey.   

'I absolutely love the thrill of walking down a runway,' Kareena had shared in an emotional note penned in 2020.

'While I've been at so many fashion events in the country, and in my career worked with so many designers, the Lakme Absolute Grand Finale holds a place like no other in my life.

'Every year I get to represent Lakme at the biggest fashion platform in the country and I eagerly wait for that one phone call that reveals the season's beauty statement, the finale designer and the new line of makeup that I get to try before anyone else.'
