Mijwan Sonnets Fashion Show – My Favourite Lehengas

A couple of days ago Shabana Azmi’s Mijwan Charity Fashion Show was organized to raise funds for her NGO. The designs were Manish Malhotra’s creations and given final touchings and embellishments by the Mijwan girls. I have a lot of favourites to share so without further ado lets begin, shall we?

The pink and beige lehenga Dia Mirza wore was a stunner. When I think of combinations, usually black-turqoise, hot pink-blue, yellow-green come to my mind but see-through beige on pink looks gorgeous! The fish tail braid adds to the charm.

Diana Penty walked the ramp in this orange gown? Not my favourite but the colour is pretttyyy.

I specially googled the close up photos of this one because the embellished net sleeves looked so pretty. I like how the blouse (choli?) is kept simple with all the drama going on the sleeves. May be she’s wearing her style on her sleeve?

Chitrangada Singh walked the ramp in a white number. I like it waist up. You may like to consider the design for your salwaar kameez next time you go to your boutique ;)

Arjun Kapoor – I’m really bad when it comes to men’s fashion. So I’ll just manage a “isn’t he hot?”!

The plain dull blue gown goes well with the orange and golden hem. One word – Royal.

Looking at the picture I now realise Imran Khan walked the ramp too.

Sonakshi Sinha – The concept is a little similar to what Dia wore above. If I have to choose I’ll go for Dia’s pink and beige lehenga. But I like this one’s wide U back.

Totally love this piece which Shraddha Kapoor wore. Digging the intricately embroidered skirt. You notice the part which looks like a waist belt? The red blouse with big golden bells all over it looks OTT but then when were our Indian weddings not OTT. One of my personal favourites from the show.

Shabana Azmi, Manish Malhotra, Priyanka Chopra

Priyanka Chopra and Manish Malhotra with the lady herself. Shabana’s style is a little unconventional (is she an Aquarian?) and that is what sets her apart from most of the women her age.

Okay I do know that Manish Malhotra’s designs are usually all similar in a very Manish way. That is you can pick out who the designer is. But why keep even the colour palatte similar? I just said I love beige on pink but not every time!

Malaika Arora Khan – Its meh

Parineeti Chopra and Priyanka Chopra – The Chopra sisters walked the ramp too. Piggy Chopps’ pink coral lehenga is so meh and boring, that even the colour couldn’t save it. But the white and black Anarkali Parineeta walked in was a stunner.

There were more designs and pictures but I only picked up these favourites to show. Any favorites?
