Can the fashion lovers of Mumbai ask for anything more than Shahrukh вЂKingвЂ™ Khan on the ramp confidently strutting in an exclusively designed Manish Malhotra creation and a unique arm sling for the вЂroyalвЂ™ elbow which is healing.
The finale entry by super star Shahrukh Khan as he strode down the ramp for the Manish Malhotra show for Fall/Winter 2009 at Lakme Fashion Week brought the audience on their feet begging for more of вЂKingвЂ™ Khan and his impromptu thank you speech interspersed with touches of humour that only Shahrukh Khan is capable of in his great inimitable style.
The celebrity lineup in the audience was awesome with Hritikh and Suzzane Roshan, Kareena Kapoor, Kajol, Arjun and Mehr Rampal, Boney and Sreedevi, Malliaka Arora Khan and Arbaaz Khan, Priety Zinta and Tusshar Kapur cheering their friend Shahrukh Khan all the way.
One can always expect the unusual whenever Manish presents a show and this time the designer worked around the colours of the Kolkatta Knight Riders theme of black and gold and presented a stunning sports inspired evening wear line. Besides the base colour story of the Knight Riders, Manish added on touches of deep red, blue and green and wove them into garments that will work wonderfully after dark.
The womenвЂ™s wear had fabulous black shaded lehengas with dazzling gold gotta and zari borders and teamed with hooded gold cholies all daringly cut. The western wear line had draped pants, gold jumpsuits, micro shorts with accessories like gold cricket pads and matching helmets and gold sneakers.
The menвЂ™s wear line started with black Bermudas, shaded Tees, jackets, with one or three gold buttons, leather cropped blousons, black velvet coats and ended with long woollen sherwanis.
It was a show that the audience couldnвЂ™t get more of and never wanted to end, as screams of вЂњWe Love You ShahrukhвЂќ ranted the air and the Super Star walked down the ramp several times to please his delighted cheering fans.
Shahrukh Khan at the Manish Malhotra show was the biggest event of the Lakme Fashion Week that Mumbai and fashionistas will not forget for a long long time.
