Lakme Fashion Week has concluded for another season and left fashion lovers wowed as always! While our team is working on a series of posts featuring the latest bridal trends from the runways, I couldn't help but talk about the Manish Malhotra show today!

Manish Malhotra is one of the most well known designers in India, and his signature anarkalis have been worn by every major Bollywood starlet. This season he took a sharp departure from bling and neons and stunned with his regal looks. I was particularly impressed with the deep purples and burgundy tones. Perfect for the festive season and fall/winter weddings in North America.

Never one to leave the audience looking for drama, Manish's runway show featured both Varun Dhawan in menswear and Kareena as the showstopper in a gorgeous silver look.

Not only do I love this outfit, but the styling is also bang on with the side swept updo and nude lips, this would be an amazing look for a pre-wedding event.
