Ace couturier and dream designer for millennial brides and most of Bollywood, Manish Malhotra staged his festive collection Maahrumysha last night—the exotic name translates to resplendent beauty. And, that’s exactly how we would describe last night's show and collection. The collection, presented in collaboration with HUL’s washcare range Love & Care, made a strong case for flowy skirts and edgy crop tops in sombre shades that looked serene.
Apart from the mesmerising collection, the beauty looks at display were exquisite yet whimsical. Here is a run-down of the beauty looks we loved, the stars in attendance and all the action that unfolded at the grand opening show...
- Beauty highlights
- Eyes—graphic delight
- Hair—set in milkmaid braids
- The show stopper—Katrina Kaif
- The guests we spotted
The models walked the ramp looking elegant with dewy skin, highlighted cheeks with a hint of blush and matte nude pouts. Makeup artist Namrata Soni did the makeup for the show and brought back artfully crafted braids and coloured liners.
Last season, it was all about black liners and exaggerated wings. That's not the case this time. Models sported unapologetic graphic liners in beautiful strokes of blue with peachy nudes on the lids. A precise wing of the upper lid and towards the inner corner and on lower lids was probably the highlight of the look and the most stunning eye makeup we’ve seen yet.
Hair—set in milkmaid braids
In case you've run out of ideas to style your hair into braids, here's another version of the weave that turned heads at the Manish Malhotra’s runway. Milkmaid braids were brought back last night and let's just say we wouldn't have it any other way. Namrata styled model’s hair in milkmaid braid but not only in buns but also in variants of twin braids at the back as well.
The show stopper—Katrina Kaif
The stunning Katrina Kaif closed the show looking gorgeous as always. She wore a velvet lehenga in emerald green and dazzling golden details paired with a contemporary blouse. Her makeup, done by Daniel Bauer, was glamorous yet minimal. Dewy skin, smokey eyes with gravity defying lashes and glossy nude lips completed the look for her. Hairstylist Amit Thakur styled her hair in voluminous, soft waves which tied the whole look together.
The guests we spotted
It was obviously, a star studded affair with the who’s who of Bollywood present at the ace designer’s show. We spotted Karisma Kapoor, Athiya Shetty, Ishan Khatter, Karan Johar, Dia Mirza in the front row. All of them sporting splendid beauty looks themselves. All in all, it was one hell of a night filled with glamour, glitz and of' course, resplendent beauty.
