That Karan Johar is known for his sense of aesthetic is a given and evident in every project he puts his name to, which is why we were only too eager to watch him get his designer game on with Vero Moda’s new collection for women titled: Marquee. And disappointed we were not. Black, gold and some seriously cool fashion statements—the collection hits all the right notes. And in true KJO style, the launch was inaugurated by the prettiest faces in the industry. Click through to see which of your favourite stars made it to the do.

Our favourite leggy lass—Lisa Haydon looked dreamy in a casual-chic ensemble. An asymmetrical black mini paired with a white top, chain sling and ballet flats. She finished her look with a clean and easy pony. Effortless, ever so breezy and yet again, a fabulous look for Ms. Haydon.
