Shilpa walks the ramp for Tarun Tahiliani

Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty walked the Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week ( WIFW) ramp for Tarun Tahiliani's collection From Kutch to Kenya and left the audience spellbound.

She was aglow in a flowing golden drape dress and a gold headband and waistband completed the look.
"People say that by bringing a celebrity on the ramp, a designer can get away with any kind of collection but that is not true. The drape evening dress was designed only keeping her in mind," Tahiliani said after the show on Thursday evening.

The truly dramatised show started with the packed hall at Pragati Maidan singing the National Anthem. And then through giant cutouts of elephants, men dressed like monkeys came jumping and dancing on the ramp, and then gave way to models.

"We played the National Anthem to recapture the essence of the 60th year of Indian independence," Tahiliani said.

The collection was inspired by Kathiawari men in Kutch, taking a break from their day, perched in draped splendour, with their dhotis and wrapped skirts hitched up, and glorious safas protecting them from the summer sun.
