The first show of the India Bridal Fashion Week (IBFW) had everything that one would like to see - if opening designer JJ Valaya recreated royalty on the ramp with his exquisitely designed ensembles, Kangna Ranaut and Kabir Bedi added glamour when they hit the ramp as showstoppers, dressed as an "elegant princess" and an "energetic maharaja" for the designer.
Titled The Maharaja Of Madrid, Valaya's show was definitely a visual treat for fashion followers. IBFW, a regular in Mumbai, has come to the capital for the first time.
When Kangna and Kabir came on, it was like a visual treat.
Looking resplendent in an orange-golden lehenga teamed with a blue velvet choli and golden headgear, Kangna looked every bit a princess. Internationally acclaimed actor Kabir justified the Maharaja look in a black embellished sherwani and maroon duppatta and a black turban.
Kangna, the actress of films like Tanu Weds Manu and Fashion, said that she walked the ramp after a while and that "it feels good to get back on stage because it is something I don't get to do often."
"I felt like a princess in this heavy outfit. Also, I was wondering how princess' must have felt wearing such heavy outfits," added the 26-year-old after the show.
Kabir, who played emperor Shah Jahan in Taj Mahal: An Eternal Love Story, fell in love with his outfit and said: "It made me feel like a maharaja, I wish I could take it home."
