She may have walked the ramp with elan in Madhur Bhandarkar’s 2008 release Fashion, but actress Kangana Ranaut was unable to move forward smoothly as the showstopper for designer Namrata Joshipura at the grand finale of Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week (WIFW) autumn-winter 2014 here.
The five-day fashion event concluded on March 30 and the Queen star was invited to sashay down the ramp as Joshipura’s showstopper.
With her curly locks tied up, Kangana made her entry in a strapless floor sweeping black gown with metallic embellishment on the side.
Just after taking a few steps, one could notice her struggling with her gown created by Joshipura. Nevertheless, Kangana gradually walked on the LED lit runway. After stumbling a few times, she slightly lifted her gown up with both hands to avoid herself from falling on the stage.
“I feel her show was good and I feel bad because I let her down,” the 27-year-old told reporters here after the show.
The designer missed the chance to walk down the ramp with Kangana and take a bow, but she continued to be happy.
“Stuff happens. Kangana is larger than that. She walked for me and I am happy,” said Joshipura.
Despite the mishap, Kangana was in some way delighted to be back on the fashion runway.
“It is nice to be here. Many years after Fashion I am getting to walk on the ramp. I was a fashion disaster in Queen and am a fashion victim in Revolver Rani. I love getting dressed and looking good for a change. I like doing shows,” said the actress, who will be soon seen in Revolver Rani.
And if it’s as chic as Joshipura’s show at the fashion week, anyone would feel honoured to be a part of it.
The show had a disc jockey and a drummer playing in coordination and before the models’ entry, a few dancers in reflective suits, which matched the theme of the collection, gave an interesting performance.
Joshipura then presented her new range titled electron, which was inspired by the future. New techniques were used. Texturing was used as embellishment, leather palettes were created and twisted fabrics were woven into surfaces.
There were long and short dresses, bodysuits, shorts and jackets in mostly black. Other colours included green, blue and red.
The knee length boots, gloves, gladiator headgear and metal piece on lips of the models, made the outfits more appealing.
