The new collection, however, saw a varied mix of contemporary and the classic, from fringe gowns to quirky printed, the outfits looked gorgeously-interesting. And thee keen-eyed fashion culturalists couldn’t help but notice a seeming similarity in Gigi’s ensemble to that of Mughal-Indian inspired Kurta-pyjama look.
The 23-year-old supermodel wore a striped, shirt-style sleeve kurta teamed with a pair of lemon-yellow flared trousers and a jazzy, caged handbag. Fashion can be outlandish, don’t they?
