Clad in a beautiful navy blue-orange lehanga, teamed with a deep-cut choli and a heavy dupatta, chirpy and spontaneous actress Parineeti Chopra left the audience applauding and cheering when she walked the ramp for veteran designer Manish Malhotra at the Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week SS 13.
Parineeti's entry made people cheer her and she could not help smiling and waving at her fans, even as she looked stunning without any accessories and minimal make-up. The 24-year-old made her acting debut in the Bollywood movie, "Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl". "About the outfit, I think it's for you people to judge. I think I looked okay," Parineeti told reporters.
Malhotra showcased his latest Mijwan collection in the capital Sunday night. It comprised the traditional yet popular embroidery work, Chikankari, by girls from Mijwan, who are supported by veteran actress and social activist Shabana Azmi's Mijwan Welfare Society (MWS). Mijwan is a small village near Azamgarh, Uttar Pradesh. Cousin of Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra, Parineeti said: "I don't want it to be just about ramp walk, but I seriously and genuinely feel for what Mijwan and what Manish and Shabanaji are doing. For such an initiative, I just could not say no. I had to be a part of it."
