Fashion designer Tarun Tahiliani opened the Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week autumn-winter 2014 with his impressive collection and actress Shilpa Shetty.
Shilpa, who is known for her well toned body, added that ooomph factor to the show; dressed in a kanjeevaram outfit. Right from ivory cascade jacket with zardozi shoulders and black silk linen salwar pants to gold applique asymmetrical one sleeved dress in red to tweed embellished blouse with teal heritage sari and corset blouse, there were many appealing pieces.
Shilpa, 38, who gave birth to her son in 2012, has been the show-stopper for Tahiliani several times in the past, but this time she got conscious of her figure. “I was bothered whether I would fit into Tarun’s creation. I worked out in two months,” said Shilpa.
The outfit she wore seemed heavy but she said it was very light. “It’s very light. The use of kanjeevaram saris sounds heavy, but it’s not. It’s so beautiful and even if I wear it inside out it will look fabulous. The finish is also great,” said Shilpa, who wore a kanjeevaram sari with swarovski on it designed by Tahiliani on her wedding day.
