The former beauty queen ruled the runway in a gorgeous lime green sari paired with a dove grey strappy blouse. The sari boasted a delicate sequinned border and a slash of fuchsia across the border of the pallu. Side-swept waves and a rose pink lippie completed the look.

The outfit is both young and old, retro and contemporary. She looks so elegant you could very well pass this off as a picture taken in the golden decade of Indian cinema, which is exactly what Malhotra was trying to do with this collection – pay a tribute to a century of Indian cinema.
The earlier outfits in his show were in monochrome, depicting the black-and-white years of the film industry. The clothes took on vibrant hues and daring as the collection progressed to the years when color was introduced to the big screen.

Embroidery and patterns played a huge role in the next phase while the final one was an eclectic mix that spelled a more contemporary vibe. Apart from Priyanka, Manish also managed to rope in Varun Dhawan, Kajol and Siddharth Malhotra to walk the ramp for him.
