Get set for the sun, sea and surf with designer Chaitanya Rao's latest collection at the LFW!

It's all about being a beach bombshell.

That was Chaitanya Rao's message, loud and clear on Day One of Lakme Fashion Week. Here's a look at resortwear from his label -- feminine, flattering and sure to sit well with a lot of the ladies.

Nicole Faria opened the show in a flaming orange corset with a jersey bikini bottom.
