Dressed in shades of azure blue, aquamarine and turquoise, Alaya F was all confidence and grace as she strode the LFW ramp. 

Walking the ramp in a contemporary resort-wear creation by Paras and Sonam Modi of SVA, she could give some of the seasoned models a run for their money. 

Sharing an image from the show on Instagram, she wrote: 'Thank you so much @svacouture for having me walk for your wonderful show! It was my first time walking solo and will always be special to me!'

Close on Alaya's heels was Mithali Raj, who also made her debut on the LFW ramp.

The Indian women's cricket team's ODI captain was the showstopper for designer Payal Singhal, who couldn't contain her excitement.

Sharing the news on Instagram, she wrote: 'What an honour to have Women’s Indian Cricket Team Captain @mithaliraj walk for us @lakmefashionwk Thank You @corcalforbeauty for bringing us all together.'

Commenting about the experience, she said in an interview, 'It was a very different experience. I had one rehearsal to get the feel.'

Salman Khan's co-actor Saiee M Manjrekar felt like a bride as she walked the LFW ramp on Valentine's Day for JIVIVA by designers Jigvijay and Varsha.

Dressed in a red-and-gold lehenga, she looked stunning as she took to the runway.

'Such a great experience,' she wrote as she shared pics from her debut ramp walk.
