Kareena Kapoor slays it as showstopper at LFW grand finale


Kareena Kapoor blazed the ramp with her style and elegance at the grand finale of the Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort. The gorgeous diva walked the ramp just 45 days after giving birth to baby Taimur Ali Khan Pataaudi.

Kareena turned showstopper of designer Anita Dongre, and slayed it in a white floor-length dress and a light golden cape. The ace designer showcased her collection, Alchemy, inspired by liquid gold/argan oil, which is also the is the main component of the new range of lipsticks by cosmetic brand Lakme, of which the ‘Ki & Ka’ actress is a brand ambassador.

It was a night to remember with the Bandra fort as the backdrop and performance by live musicians.   

"I am walking the ramp just 45 days after giving birth to my son. I don't think that it was a big deal to do. I was happy when I was approached with the idea," the actress was quoted as saying by PTI. Kareenas designer friend Manish Malhotra, actress Sangeeta Bijlani, Diana Penty, Gul Panag, Shabana Azmi, Shriya Saran and Juhi Chawla were present during the show to cheer for the yummy mummy, but her hubby was conspicuous by his absence.

Kareena said the actor was busy taking care of Taimur at home. “I am lucky that I have such an amazing husband. He is very supportive. So whenever I am out working, he takes care of our baby," she said.

Kareena is also the face of Dongres western wear brand And. She added, “I have a great association with Anita. She is very inspirational, not just to me but to all women across the country who relate to her clothes and wear her brand."  

In August last year, Kareena had flaunted her baby bump in an exquisite lehenga, heavily embellished in gold threadwork, when she turned the showstopper for Sabyasachi Mukherjee at the grand finale of the Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2016.

Kareena and hubby Saif Ali Khan welcomed their baby boy Taimur of December 20. She has not let her pregnancy or motherhood affect her lifestyle too much, and has been frequently spotted spending time with her girl gang and attending parties with hubby Saif.

The actress has shed her post-baby flab and is back to her former self, looking gorgeous as ever. She will soon begin shooting for her next film ‘Veere Di Wedding’ which she had signed during her pregnancy phase. Besides Kareena, the chick flick will also star Sonam Kapoor, Swara Bhaskar and Shikha Talsania. It will be directed by Shashank Ghosh and produced by Rhea Kapoor.
