After the lavish kick-start of LFW Winter Festive 2018, the finishing days were the most anticipated which saw the best of the celebrities walking the runway.
The curtain closer is the most scheduled event which glitzy red carpet with high fashion and of course, the starry showstoppers.
Talking about the concept of inclusivity as a theme, Lakme India Fashion Week explored new and pioneering collaborations and ways of storytelling through experimentation presentations and showcases. The gala also witnessed a celebration of wedding wear and festive wear. What’s loved the most was how each designer that presented their collection on the last days showed us a fresh side of these celebrity showstoppers.
Here is a closer look at the celebrity turn out on the last days of the Lakme Fashion Week Winter Festive 2018.
Huma Qureshi and Saqib Saleem for Anvita Sharma
Two Point Two’s W/F’18 collection ‘Simultaneity’ paid tribute to the traditional agender Japanese garment ‘Kimono’. The collection at LFW Winter Festive 2018 featured the deconstruction of the sophisticated formal wear into jaunty and chic street wear with thread hand work embroideries and bold geometric patterns.

Shruti Hassan walked for Saaksha & Kinn, while Malaika Arora stunned the runaway for Anushree Reddy.
To-be parents Neha and Angad Bedi, warmed up the LFW runway with much love! And yes, the two and a half showstoppers were a part of Payal Singhal’s show. Meanwhile, Bipasha Basu walked for Rucera, which was inspired by Rabindranath Tagore’s timeless Bengali dance drama ‘Chitrangada.’
Varun Dhawan brought the eventual cool vibe to the runway in Kunal Rawal’s outfit. Kangana Ranaut stepped out to the ramp in a creation of Pankaj and Nidhi. While Jacqueline Fernandez took the show way back to the ‘70s with her old school glam vibe with Ashish N Soni’s creation.
This time at Lakme Fashion Week’s Winter Festive 2018 edition, Monisha Jaising was the esteemed designer for the Grand Finale showcase. Monisha is known for infusing glamour into formal and casual wear with a plush touch.
Models showcasing Monisha’s collection flounced down the runway in graceful dresses fitted jumpsuits and cutout gowns. Sparkle was of prime importance as most garments saw glitter and embellishment of some kind. Leather, metallic finishes and sequins reigned supreme over the collection. And then came the moment many had been waiting for throughout Lakme Fashion Week; the arrival of Kareena Kapoor Khan in a green-grey sparkling ensemble of a pleated skirt, cutout torso and off-shoulder strapless blouse. It has been a particularly fantastic season for Kareena Kapoor Khan. In Lakme Fashion Week tradition, she had sizzled on the ramp as their Grand Finale showstopper. Looks like Kareena has done it again as the fashion showcase closed on a high note.
