The Amazon India Couture Week 2015 that took place in the Leela Hotel, Chanakyapuri, New Delhi was an incredible success! The show, which started off with Sabyasachi’s grand collaboration with Christian Louboutin, presented the collections of the biggest names in the fashion industry like Anju Modi, Manav Gangvani and more. The finale saw Aishwarya Rai Bachchan walking the ramp for designer Manish Malhotra. The designers showcased their mesmerising collections of anarkalis, gowns, sarees and dresses. And we thought we would show you the best looks out of them all, along with the hair-dos, makeup styles and jewelry designs that go along with the looks.
So, all new brides, take inspiration for your wedding, as well as the pre- and post-wedding functions from our list.
#1. Richa Chadda for Reynu Taandon
Actress Richa Chadda walked the ramp in a beautiful and grand, red and gold lehenga. From her jewelry to her makeup and mannerisms, she looked like no less than royalty. This is a perfect bridal look for a traditional royal wedding.
#2. Aditi Rao Hydari for Debarun Mukherjee
Actress Aditi Rao Hydari wore a stunning blue gown with net sleeves. Her cute looks and fragile frame complimented the outfit very well. This gown is the perfect choice for an after-wedding dinner party.
#3. Chitrangada Singh for Debarun Mukherjee
Actress Chitrangada Singh wore an outfit by designer Debarun Mukherjee and looked every bit beautiful in it. No actress can match the sex appeal of this diva. You too can opt for this look if you want to look like a princess on your D-Day!
#4. Pernia Qureshi for Monisha Jaising
Fashion entrepreneur and style icon Pernia Qureshi opened the show for Monisha Jaising. She was there to promote her upcoming film Jaanisaar. She sashayed down the aisle in a stunning cut-out pale blue gown with delicate mirror work down its sides. This would be perfect for a cocktail sangeet ceremony.
#5. Kriti Sanon for Monisha Jaising
New kid on the block actress Kriti Sanon wore an out-of-the-box Indo-western ethnic lehenga skirt with a grey tank top. She paired it with embroidered sneakers and looked really hip! A look like this would be ideal for a theme wedding function like a hatke mehendi ki raat.
#6. Kalki Koechlin for Gaurav Gupta
Actress Kalki Koechlin looked oh-so-classy in her tiered golden gown. She could be compared any day to a Disney princess wearing that! Girls, a formal reception is where that outfit needs to be showed off! But, if you are on the heavier side, then you should avoid wearing such flared outfits, as they might add more bulk to your overall look.
#7. Kangana Ranaut for Manav Gangwani
Actress Kangana Ranaut walked the ramp as the showstopper for designer Manav Gangwani in this stunning purple gown. A sagan function or cocktail party is where you can wear something like this. An unusual color, beautiful detailing and a perfect fit is what will give you the diva look just as you see it here on this 'Queen of Bollywood.'
#8. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan for Manish Malhotra
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan wore a Manish Malhotra creation at the Amazon India Couture Week 2015 and looked like an absolute diva! And something like this would look best for a reception party. The short sequined jacket gave the outfit a different look altogether, and the unusual earthy color brought out her eternal beauty to the fore!
#9. Shilpa Shetty for Rimple and Harpreet Narula
Actress Shilpa Shetty displayed a creation by designer Rimple and Harpreet Narula and set the fire alarms running on loud, as she looked smoking hot! Well, only if you have the figure to pull off an outfit like this with such poise should you opt for an outfit like this!
#10. 'The Empress Story' by Manish Malhotra
Manish Malhotra’s 'The Empress Story' collection blew our minds away. Beautifully structured silhouettes, bold colors, flared gowns, deep necklines, sideways embroidery and a charming persona is what this collection was all about! We especially love the super gorgeous brown and gold lehenga choli. Even the color is far from the usual bridal colors, perfect for a cocktail or wedding dinner in lovely tones of brown. This is super sexy yet classy!
All the designers dazzled the audiences with their absolutely stunning creations. This fashion week is something all soon-to-be brides should look to for inspiration. And we hope that we are able to give you a jumpstart on your wedding plans by bringing our list of favorites for you to include in your wedding trousseau.
