After flaunting her baby bump at Lakme Fashion Week last year, actress Kareena Kapoor Khan is once again set to walk the runway at the grand finale of its upcoming Summer/Resort 2017 edition for ace designer Anita Dongre.
The 36-year-star will take the ramp for the first time since she gave birth to her child Taimur with actor Saif Ali Khan.
The new mother will don Dongre’s creation, inspired by liquid gold/argan oil, the main component of the new range of lipsticks by Lakme Absolute.
“It’s always a pleasure representing Lakme at the most spectacular Grand Finale. And, this year as well, I am glad to go back to Lakme Fashion Week and walk for Anita. I am looking forward to see how she is going to transform the ‘Liquid Gold’ theme on the runway,” said Kareena in a statement.
Dongre, who will bring the curtains down at LFW, has also used handcrafted embroidery in her collection, a portion of which has been done in Jaipur. She has involved her signature gota-patti work and combined it with new detailing.
“Kareena has been an absolute role model through her pregnancy and shortly after the arrival of her baby boy, she now returns to her favourite role as showstopper for Lakme grand finale in February. LFW would’ve missed our golden girl.
“And Kareena wears the brand ambassador crown for Anita Dongre’s label and as well as Lakme, so her return to this season’s finale runway will be a doubly magical occasion,” said Purnima Lamba, Head of Innovation, Lakme said. Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2017 edition will take place from February 1 to 5.
