The Lakme Fashion Week Winter/ Festive 2019 kicked off this week and Manish Malhotra opened the show with a fabulous showcase. Lots of celebrities showed up at the event and arrived in stunning ensembles. From Khushi Kapoor to Katrina Kaif to Karisma Kapoor; many starlets were in attendance of the show. The event has been a star-studded affair till now and many fashionistas have caught our eye. Bollywood starlets have turned showstoppers for different designers and one starlet in particular, has caught our attention.
Athiya Shetty walked the ramp for designer duo Abraham and Thakore in a striped sari in black and white and exuded the 60’s charm. The collection promotes sustainable fibers of Ecovero which is much needed today. The fibers used in the fabric are derived from sustainable wood and pulp and come from certified and controlled sources. This in turn creates 50% lower emissions and water impact than generic viscose. What a great initiative and what a great brand Athiya has walked for.
The Mubarakan actress took to her Instagram account to share pictures of herself in the show stopping outfit and also pictures with the two designers. Athiya glided down the ramp in a beautiful black and white sari which was adorned with the same black and white stripes all over. The blouse too was made of the same print and featured a collar and was in a button down style. The sari also featured a black frill along the edging. With her height and physique, the actress was able to pull the sari off with so much ease.
“Grateful to have walked for the @abrahamandthakorecollection which promotes sustainable fibers of Ecovero, much needed today. These fibers are derived from sustainable wood and pulp, coming from certified and controlled sources, creating 50% lower emissions & water impact than generic viscose. Thank you @lakmefashionwk for making fashion choices that are environmentally responsible. @ecovero_india,” she captioned the post.
An interesting feature of Athiya’s look was her extremely long beaded earrings. Black and white pearls were beaded together in a sequence and hang from her ears all the way down to her waist.
The Nawabzaade actress was sans any other jewellery and opted for a laidback makeup look for her walk down the ramp. With perfectly winged eyeliner and a peachy pout, Athiya’s bold sari did all the talking. To complete her look, she had her hair parted on the side and left loose in waves.
Athiya Shetty, who is the daughter of Bollywood action hero Sunil Shetty made her big Bollywood debut with Hero in which she starred alongside Aditya Pancholi and Sooraj Pancholi. In a recent interview, she revealed the one rule that is followed in her household.
“Our family rule is that we don’t give each other advice. We pick up on our learning as our journey unfolds. I think my parents have done that with me and now we’re doing that with my brother,” she said. The 26-year-old Mubarakan actress is currently anticipating the release of her film; Motichoor Chaknachoor in which she will be starring alongside Nawazuddin Siddiqui. She is also aspiring to make her digital debut soon.
“It’s just a platform that allows you to watch so many different films from so many different countries and cultures. It kind of makes the world smaller and united,” she said of her digital debut.
