Having celebrities walking the ramp for a designer is old news, but designer Neeta Lulla went with someone who isn’t from the league of Chopras, Kapoors or Kaifs. Instead, timeless beauty Sridevi represented Neeta Lulla’s collection to the T. It was the designer’s 25th anniversary and the collection was inspired by the repository of work done over the years in both pret and couture.
Since it’s been years since Sridevi walked the ramp or made such kind of an appearance in front of a gamut of celebrities she did face a few hiccups. The lady made a smashing entry looking but moving on almost tripped thrice while walking down the ramp. Sporting a silverish -grey body fitting gown, she looked splendid but the train of her dress wasn’t helping matters. Every time she would take a step further the skirt would gather under her feet making it impossible for her to walk on and almost tripping her. Such was the design of the outfit that even when Sridevi came to take a bow with the Neeta Lulla, the designer held on to Sridevi lest she trips again. Such kind of creativity can be fatal.
But the experience of walking at LFW was still something the yesteryear actress cherished.
Lulla’s show boasted of a number of known names right from Rani Mukherjee, Hema Malini, Tabu, Juhi Chawla, Ameesha patel and Yash Chopra. Actors Akshay Kumar, Rannvijay and Vipul Shah too came to the show in retro outfits to promote their film Action Replayy.
Seems like a fine evening and Sridevi made up for the clumsy design with her stunning persona.
