Actor Sushmita Sen stunned onlookers as she turned showstopper for designer Anushree Reddy. She returned on the ramp after surviving a major heart attack and the onlookers kept applauding her.
The Ahilaya collection was dappled with beauty as it moved through motifs of singing birds and lush swinging flowers. The inspirations were creatively and cleverly drawn from history but merged with modern, cutting-edge sensibilities that Anushree is well known for.
The historic references of textiles and embroidered motifs were evident in the design direction of the ensembles. There was at times delightful evidence of art meets couture, when the intricate craft of resham hand embroidery with zardozi was lavished on luxurious fabrics. The selection remained true to the utterly, feminine inspiration, when raw silk, katan and organza were splashed with bursts of colour.
The silhouettes were regal and elegant, as magnificently embellished lehengas and pretty, ornate cholis were draped with diaphanous dupattas. The dazzle of the ensembles on the ramp will delight brides when they search for memorable options for their bridal trousseaux.
For the groom, Anushree created the perfect look for the kurtas, sherwanis and bandgalas that will
be ideal when taking the wedding vows. Looking gorgeous, the very fabulous Sushmita Sen, Miss Universe 1994, looked fantastic in a yellow lehenga,choli,dupatta trio, as she gracefully glided down the runway to close the Anushree Reddy show.
