Oops moment for Nargis Fakhri
We believe that the whole point of expensive, high-quality designer dresses is that not only they would add to our glamour and style, but also that they wouldn’t rip like cheaper clothes. Yet, with all the sexy and daring ramp moves in the fashion industry, few wardrobe malfunctions, from fabric splitting to strap detaching, are bound to happen.
Here’s what happened in New Delhi, on Day 3 of the Indian Bridal Fashion Week (IBFW) 2014. Ravishing model-actress Nargis Fakhri, show-stopper of the day, suffered a minor wardrobe malfunction as she walked the ramp for AZVA Jewellers, who commenced the show for the evening.
The ‘Rockstar’ actress had just completed her walk on the ramp. She had adorned a sensuous Nikhil Thampi black gown with a plunging neckline, showing off her 22-carat gold choker in an antique finish. As she came and stood next to the Azva Creator, the actress’ gown tore away from the centre, as a result of which, her slit was pushed higher up, revealing more than she intended to. However, where a wardrobe malfunction can leave the brashest of the celebs red-faced, the incident did not deter Fakhri’s confidence and couldn’t stop her from flashing a million dollar smile. She regained her composure in no time and covered her fashion faux pas instantly by the cape of her gown.
After the show, the actress confided that another model had stepped on her gown, causing the accident. “Somebody stepped on my dress and I started laughing and I could not stop laughing. I laugh when I get nervous,” she told the reporters with a laugh. While, the minor fashion incident made headlines all over, the actress didn't pay much heed to it. She later tweeted thanking the designer and the brand, for which she walked. "#IBFW2014 @azva7vows @nikhil_thampi what a night!!," Fakhri wrote.
Apart from the smouldering diva, Priya Sachdev, in a hot red gown, and Rohit Bal, in a white sherwaani, also walked the ramp as showstoppers. The models, in hues of white, pink and lavender, catwalked the glitzy red carpet wearing elaborate gold ornaments as part of the brand’s wedding collection. What added to the ambience was singer-model Rachael Verghese, who enthralled the audience with some enticing numbers including Adele's ‘Skyfall’.
In the recent past, such ‘oops’ moments have become a known thing, with celebs like Katrina Kaif, Deepika Padukone and Madhuri Dixit, among many others, having embarrassing upskirt moments. Well ladies, we hope you’d be more careful from now on!
