There should have been sparks flying and rainbows glittering when lovebirds Shibani Dandekar and Farhan Akhtar walked the ramp together for the very first time.

Instead, discomfort weighed heavy at Payal Singhal's show at the Lakme Fashion Week.

Don't believe us? Take a look. 


It's a milestone collection for Payal.

Titled #PS20, Payal's collection is inspired by gypsies and the bohemian lifestyle.

It also takes cues from Islamic architecture and the bazaars of Turkey and Morocco.

It had breezy and fun elements.

Payal marked the milestone by launching PS for Men.

Shibani was there at the post-event press conference... but where was Farhan?
