That Manish Malhotra is synonymous with Bollywood styling and designing is no new news, which is why we were all the more excited to be witnessing, right up front, all the excitement last night at the Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2014 finale— and let’s just say we were not disappointed. With the likes of Varun Dhawan looking his stylish best opening the show and having Kareena Kapoor Khan as the final showstopper of the season, you know that the starry supporters would be present by the bucket load.
