Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor Khan, who dazzled the Lakme Fashion Week (LFW) ramp when she was pregnant with her first child, will take to the fashion runway once again as a showstopper at the grand finale of the upcoming Summer/Resort 2017 edition of the gala. This will be her first ramp walk after delivering son Taimur.
Kareena will flaunt a bespoke creation by celebrated designer Anita Dongre, whose line finds inspiration in Lakme’s ‘Liquid Gold’ collection.
The actress, who is the face of Lakme Absolute says she is glad to walk for Dongre, who will be showcasing her collection on February 5 at the Jio Garden here.
“It’s always a pleasure representing Lakmé at the most spectacular Grand Finale. And, this year as well, I am glad to go back to Lakmé Fashion Week and walk for Anita. I am looking forward to see how she is going to transform the ‘Liquid Gold’ theme on the runway”, Kareena said in a statement.
After successfully establishing Gloss, Sculpt and Illuminate as trend leading make-up ranges, Lakme is now introducing the next generation of lipsticks, enriched with argan oil. Known around the world as a miracle beauty solution, argan oil (aka liquid gold) is considered by the beauty industry to be almost as valuable as the metal it’s named for.
“Kareena has been an absolute role model through her pregnancy and shortly after the arrival of her baby boy, she now returns to her favourite role as showstopper for the Lakmé grand finale in February. LFW would’ve missed our golden girl.
“And Kareena wears the brand ambassador crown for Anita Dongre’s label AND as well as Lakmé, so her return to this season’s finale runway will be a doubly magical occasion,” Purnima Lamba, Head of Innovation, Lakmé added.
