Fashion designer Tarun Tahiliani on Wednesday opened the Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week autumn-winter 2014 with his impressive collection and actress Shilpa Shetty, known for well-maintained figure, heightened the glamour quotient when she hit the ramp in a kanjeevaram outfit.
Right from ivory cascade jacket with zardozi shoulders and black silk linen salwar pants to gold applique asymmetrical one sleeved dress in red to tweed embellished blouse with teal heritage sari and corset blouse, there were many appealing pieces.
Shilpa, 38, who gave birth to her son in 2012, has been the showstopper for Tahiliani several times in the past, but this time she got conscious of her figure.
"I was bothered whether I would fit into Tarun's creation. I worked out in two months," Shilpa told reporters here after the opening show of the five-day event.
Dressed in layered kanjeevaram puffy draped skirt and a draped corset blouse, her waist looked as perfect as it can be. Though the outfit, looked heavy due to the puffiness, she said it was just the opposite.
"It's very light. The use of kanjeevaram saris sounds heavy, but it's not. It's so beautiful and even if I wear it inside out it will look fabulous. The finish is also great," said Shilpa, who wore a kanjeevaram sari with swarovski on it designed by Tahiliani on her wedding day. She married businessman Raj Kundra in 2009.
She looked absolutely hot and walked the ramp with that oomph factor.The designer was joined by Harman Baweja and Ayesha Khanna at the end to take the bow of thanks. Shilpa Shetty is producing the movie Dishkiyaoon for the first time and its releasing this friday.
Earlier in Bollywood if an actress gets married it means she is written off. Now the scene is totally different. Actresses like Aishwarya Rai, Shilpa Shetty, Madhuri Dixit, Juhi Chawla, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Vidya Balan et al have all had their share of limlight and popularity before getting married and they still have their name and fame intact in Bollywood.
Shilpa Shetty oozed out attitude, exuberance and looked absolutely stunning in Tarun Tahiliayani's outfit.
