New Delhi: VJ-turned-actor Sophie Choudry walked the ramp for ace designer Rina Dhaka at the ongoing India Bridal Fashion Week in New Delhi. Rina Dhaka's collection- ‘Free Spirited Bride' was a play of textures, embroidery, opulence and style with panache .
She looked like a beautiful bride in her floral printed, green and orange sharara with a stapless multi coloured blouse. The blouse had intricate mirror work on it and the beige coloured light dupatta was put over her head like a pallu.
Sophie looked breathtaking in this traditional avatar.She wore minimal makeup and completed the look with heavy glossy orange lips and dark smoky eyes. The damsel had her hair tied in a side bun, accessorised with gold string.
Rina Dhaka when asked what were her reasons for choosing Sophie Choudry to start her show said, “I wanted someone really hot to grace my ramp and Sophie is my friend's daughter and someone I am very close too, so who better then her to do it.”
The couturier Rina Dhaka's show had anarkalis, shararas in new shapes, structures and patterns which were the new entrants in style file. Short and floor length jackets with anarkali underneath are also a big trend. Lot of layering is happening nowadays. Her show was full of colors, vibrant and very contemporary. The designer's bridal collection at India Bridal Fashion Week (IBFW) 2013 was glitzy and bright.
