Made up primarily of lace, the line was overall quite provocative. Gowns and dresses were embellished with embroidery offering equal amounts of glamour and sophistication. Shehlaa loves her pastels and the new collection stayed strong to the designer’s ideas while still taking some risks through color combinations and textures that are new to her work.
The show ended to thunderous applause as Bollywood actress Karishma Kapoor walked down the runway in one of the ethereal creations.
What she wore

Karishma wore one of the most feminine pieces from Shehlaa’s Colelction. The foundation of her ensemble was a floor-sweeping peach dress with a lace overlay, the latter sheer from the thigh down. Delicate silver embroidery embellished the V-neckline and the hem of the sleeves. Similar embellishment enriched the statement collar that was clipped around her neck.

Meanwhile, a sash the same color as the dress was wrapped around the waist in imitation of a belt and it then trailed down the sides and on to the floor to create a train. The portion that dragged along the floor was black, adding an interesting tie-and-dye touch to the look.

We’re not too happy with the hairstyle for this look – Half-up, half-down, bouffant-esque with the bangs curled out wards on the sides. Maybe they were going for a retro touch there but it just ended up looking outdated. The saving grace was the curls on the ends which fell over both shoulders.
A pink lippie and smokey eyes completed the picture.
