Hema Malini performs at LFW for Neeta Lulla
Veteran actress and famous Bharatnatyam dancer Hema Malini danced at the on-going Lakme Fashion Week for ace designer Neeta Lulla. When Neeta Lulla approached Hema Malini to perform during her fashion show, she readily accepted. As the show opened up, Hema Malini filled the air with grace and elegant and there was a flow of tradition. She performed as Radha with all male dancers as Krishna matching steps with her.
Hema Malini looked tremendous in a dark purple lehenga choli
and light purple net dupatta embroidered in gold.
Neeta dressed Hema Malini in the past and so she need not have to struggle with her style. It was very easy for Neeta to dress up Hema and made her look gorgeous.
"I had no clue what made me go with Hemaji. It was not difficult to convince her. When I approached her she agreed readily. I had Krishna on my side and things fell into place. I have dressed her since 10 to 12 years, it never struck me to do something like this. There is the right time for everything. I never planned it," Neeta said after the show.
The theme of the show falls in the line of traditional affair with varieties of contrasting color like red, blue and peacock green making an impact. The outfits are heavily embroidered basically gold embroidery and making them ideal for a bridal trousseau. The borders were given a rich and exquisite look by the extensive use of brocades.
"Radha has always been a symbol of grace and she is the epitome of beauty and romance for me. She was my inspiration this season. I have depicted the feminity and grace through my collection," Neeta said.
"She (Radha) is always worshiped. Whether it is India or any part of the country she is dressed in various avatars all over the place. That was the theme for my collection. With color schemes, styles, something that is joining together with love, eternal romantic appeal to it," she added.
The show ended in a unique style with a male model dressed
as Krishna in a blue dhoti and a gold elaborate kamarbandh with a flute in his
hand walking the ramp.
He was followed by all the other models that made the show a perfect one.
