What’s better than one showstopper? It’s two! And what’s better than the power couple of the moment to walk for you? Nothing! Manish Malhotra reigns as the numero uno couturier of the country for a reason. The man knows how to bring his A+ game to design and then take it a notch higher with a star-spangled show. We experienced the magic first-hand last night as Manish put together a very special show to celebrate ten years of Mijwan, his special line for exquisite chikankari garments. And walking for him were Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh aka the fashion royalty of B-town.
Mr & Mrs Padukone, You Guys!
Last night, #DeepVeer treaded the ramp hand in hand for Manish’s Mijwan collection and this was the first time they were doing this as husband and wife. The two looked like royalty in their contrasting black and white fits and gave us an iconic fashion moment to remember.
Truly in the spirit of Mijwan, Deepika wore a gorgeous lehenga set that had our attention for the intricate chikankari and the unique Manish Malhotra touch. The designer has been reinventing Lucknow’s traditional embroidery with modern updates and Deepika’s look was at the culmination for all his hard work. Her outfit included a nude skirt embellished with heavy chikankari and silver gota patti work. It was matched with a signature Manish Malhotra blouse that featured an interesting cross-over cut. The best part? Manish swapped the dupatta for an elaborate cape to make for a truly show-stopping look complete with a scalloped border and statement gota jaal.
DP’s trailing cape adds a powerful touch to the outfit. We are obsessed with the statement shoulders and how good they look with the actress’s chocolate bob!
Ranveer provided a sharp contrast to DP with his black-embroidered jacket and sharp lines. And then the man did what he does best—put up a show as he took over the stage with his infectious smile and even shook hands with the front row audience. He looked rather charming in his tailoured jacket and pant fit and we can bet that everyone would want to re-create this Ranveer Singh look. Guess Manish Malhotra knows how to work that kind of magic!
Here, check out some more snippets of the couple from the show:
Notice DP’s dramatic eyes and Ranveer’s diamond studs? These two will never not be iconic!
