New Delhi: Actor Vidya Balan brought some Bollywood glamour to the grand finale of Wills India Fashion Week by turning up to cheer for her favourite designer Sabyasachi.
The 33-year-old actor has almost become a fixture at every Sabyasachi show and she did not refrain from showing her support on Sunday’s event, which marked the end of the five-day fashion extravaganza in the capital.
When asked to comment on the designer’s new collection, Vidya said, “What can I say which I haven’t said last year or the year before? He never ceases to amaze me, taking designing to a different level each time.
“His collection was so stunning, I wanted to grab some of the pieces off the ramp!”
The ‘No One Killed Jessica´ star wears the designer’s creations to almost every social do, and last night was not an exception.
Donning a bright yellow saree teamed with a fuchsia blouse, Vidya said, “I wear sarees which are by Sabyasachi only.”
She has also sported his creations in films like ‘Paa´ and ‘No One Killed Jessica´ and the designer joked in a recent interview that he is “tired” of seeing Vidya in his designs.
When asked about the same, the actress promptly responded, “He doesn’t have to see me wearing his sarees, it is I who have to look at myself in the mirror and I think I look best in his creations.”
The finale had Sabyasachi presenting a contemporary collection with a touch of the vintage with the backdrop resembling books lined up in a British library.
London-based singer Kiya kicked off the show with her rendition of the classic number ‘I Will Survive´ accompanied by the jazz band Ronnie Montrose playing live.
Models walked the ramp in long skirts, tops, short dresses and in various shades of green, red, orange and mauve. Black was a predominant colour and so was the floral motif.
“The collection was inspired by some of my favourite artistes like Frida Kahlo, Pablo Picasso and films by Pedro Almodovar. There is a lot of patchwork zardosi used,” said Sabyasachi.
