Sanjukta Dutta shines the spotlight on Assam's beautiful textiles.

Designer Sanjukta Dutta has always reminded us about the beauty and tradition of Indian textiles.

Her latest collection, Shukoolaa, meaning bright and white, featured a line of traditional and Indo-Western styles.

And she had the gorgeous Lara Dutta Bhupathi as her showstopper.

Dressed in a white and gold mekhela chador, the former Miss Universe was elegance personified. Her statement jhumka and radiant smile were the only accessories she needed.
