Kareena to walk as a showstopper at the LFW

Kareena Kapoor will walk the ramp for the grand finale of Lakme Fashion Winter festive 2012, scheduled to start from August 3. The five day show from August 3-7 will be held at a suburban five star hotel.

In 2011, Kareena walked as the show stopper for designer friend Manish Malhotra during Lakme Fashion Week.

"We did have a show stopper earlier for grand finale. Though last year, for Rohit Bal's grand finale we did not have anyone. But Kareena did walk the ramp for Manish Malhotra two seasons ago. We are already working with her (for this season). She is taking out her time for that," Purnima Lamba, Head Innovations Lakme, told reporters here.

"At this point we have not decided the prospect of it but she is very excited to walk for us. So Kareena might be the show stopper," she said.

Last year Kareena walked for designer Rohit Bal at the grand finale but there was no show stopper then. This year she might be the show stopper.

This year two new designers, Kallol Dutta and Pankaj-Nidhi. will show their designs at the grand finale.

On asking if there is any risk factor of assigning a new designer for the grand finale, Lamba said, "The concept of bringing fresh perspective for the finale was a very exciting one. So we were very thrilled to get them on board. I don't see any risk in this as it is my responsibility to give them a voice. Also it is interesting from a creative point of view, as both of them have their individual style."
