At India Couture Week 2018, Shilpa Shetty Kundra wore a fierce, futuristic saree as the showstopper for fashion designer Amit Aggarwal’s debut show on Friday. Read on for pictures and videos of Shilpa’s luxurious look.
Shilpa Shetty Kundra is no stranger to slaying red carpets. So it’s no surprise that as the showstopper for fashion designer Amit Aggarwal’s debut show at India Couture Week 2018 on Friday, she did just that. The actor stunned, as she always does, in a luxurious red carpet-worthy saree from Aggarwal’s couture 2018 collection, Crystalis. Shilpa’s sparkling plum saree was paired with one giant studded ear cuff and multiple jewelled rings from Outhouse Jewellery and metallic heels with bead embellishments from shoe couturier Nidhi Bhandari.
Shilpa’s corded saree came with the kind of unapologetic volume Aggarwal’s championed over the past few years. Though this couture gown-like saree might be the designer’s most dazzling attempt at playing with proportion yet.
Shilpa’s two-piece look came complete with a molten polymer and moulded metallic tape drape that mirrored a body of water and was embellished with intricate embroidery to give the fabric a unique visual and tactile quality. Pleated metallics have never looked more glamorous.
Shilpa’s sleeveless blouse featured a plunging neckline, shimmering beads, metallic cords and laser-cut geometric embellishments. The ensemble combined sculptural yet agile fabrications that accentuated her figure. As Shilpa moved, you could barely make out the fact that the outer layer of the metallic fabric was a smoky purple, while the interior (and her blouse) was more of a deep grey-purple hybrid.
Taking the shine of her look up a notch, Shilpa matched her make-up look to her garment. To complement the sparkling plum colour of her saree-gown, she opted for an equally sparkling purple metallic eyelid, glossy pink lip, shimmery eyeshadow, and highlight. If anyone can pull off this much purple and shine in one look, it’s Shilpa. Her gelled back sleek hair was yet another reminder that the actor has never met a hairstyle she can’t wear.
Designer Amit Aggarwal zoomed into the future with a collection of bombastic, energetic, voluminous, structured and edgy clothing with metallic accents and fabrics.
“In this collection, we have put together molecules that form a unit, and units put together form a crystal. So our collection is called Crystalis, as crystals are what we have put together in the collection,” Aggarwal told Hindustan Times in an interview before his show.
