While we all might credit ourselves for being fashionistas first and star-stricken fan-girls next, there’s no denying that watching your favourite celebrity strut down the ramp in a couture garment, leaves us all holding our breaths. So here’s rounding up for you the dazzling stars that truly and literally stopped the show and reminded us why we lust for them so hard.

Truly, if there is one way to kick off the festivities—there is literally no one better to do it than the absolutely smashing Sushmita Sen. No exaggeration when we say this was hands-down one of the highlights of fashion week.

We were certainly taken by surprise when the svelte star walked for Queen of Quirk Masaba Gupta. But rocking her prints and drool-worthy Amrapali jewellery—it was a surprise we didn’t mind, not one bit.

Bringing traditional handlooms a modern was courtship Anavila and no one brought the sentiment of the brand alive like Konkona Sen Sharma.

Pouting, posing and exuding oomph by the bucket-load was the very sexy Nargis Fakri. She just gets it right every time, doesn’t she?

No fashion week is complete without this beauty. We loved as she mouthed “well done” to Vikram Phadnis as he took his final bow. Truly a lady with class.

She dazzled, she glossed and she set the ramp on fire. There is no one like Kareena Kapoor Khan and when she joins forces with Manish Malhotra—we’re left weak in the knees.

And with that my friends, I’ll call it a wrap.
