It’s that time of the year again as the five-day fashion gala, Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2018 kick-started on a fabulous note today. With over 70 designers showcasing their collection for the season, the extravaganza also witnesses an interesting line-up of eminent Bollywood celebrities. Amongst them, Taapsee Pannu sashayed down the runway at the Jio Gardens in BKC, Mumbai. Turning showstopper for the feted fashion designer Ritu Kumar, Taapsee Pannu looked drop dead gorgeous in a summery ensemble that was breezy and chic yet ultra- glamorous.
The designer showcased her collection titled; Hip Hop Baroque. The highlight of this collection was a seamless blend of street couture and rap culture. It was inspired by the rebellious spirit of the past subcultures and has been re-contextualized for a contemporary and refreshing take. The eclectic collection witnessed a melange of prints and also introduced the new-age textiles like the shimmer jersey, handloom sequins and Lurex georgette. The colour palette featured hues like black, blue, metallic with a heady mix of ecru, baby pink and ochre. Here is a closer look at Taapsee Pannu’s gorgeous avatar.
Taapsee Pannu for Ritu Kumar
Taapsee Pannu was all smiles as she flaunted her toned frame in an all black avatar of a sequinned crop top and denim shorts. She layered up the look with a stunning shimmery longline shrug held together by a belt and stepped into black boots. A subtle makeup of nude lips and well defined eyes and loose waves rounded out her look.
Bollywood Hungama Style Verdict
Speaking on her experience of being a show stopper, Taapsee confessed that a Ritu Kumar ensemble was her first ever investment in designer couture. As a middle class Delhi girl, Taapsee saved her pocket money for the same and being a show stopper for the brand that she revered has given her an amazing feeling of accomplishment. The ensemble that Taapsee flaunted certainly resonated with her persona as the femininity of the silhouette seamlessly blended with the ruggedness of street couture.
Style cues from Taapsee Pannu
Label Ritu Kumar has always been associated with bright colours but imbibing a grunge vibe for the first time, this collection is replete with ensembles that can cater to every girl’s taste. Taapsee chose this ensemble as the perfect #OOTN for a date night or a night with her girlies!
On the professional front, Taapsee Pannu who was last seen in Judwaa 2 opposite Varun Dhawan will be seen in the romantic comedy, Dil Junglee essaying the role of Koroli Nair opposite Saqib Saleem scheduled for a release on 16 February 2018.
