Talented Indian actor Nimrat Kaur, who impressed many with her red carpet looks internationally since her internationally acclaimed and BAFTA-nominated film ‘The Lunchbox’ and American TV series ‘Homeland’, says that she prefers “cool, comfortable and graceful” clothing in her life.
“My personal style is cool, comfortable and graceful,” she said on the sidelines of Lakme Fashion Week Winter-Festive 2015 where she walked for designer Payal Singhal as a showstopper on Wednesday.
Singhal showcased a collection titled ‘Mayaa’ that drew inspiration from the ancient design heritage of Mayan, Sumerian and Egyptian civilisations.
The designer took geometric and structured elements from old beaten gold ornaments and translated them into running patterned motifs. Embroidery done in zardosi, pita kora, mukaish and leather applique were the high points of the show.
The silhouettes were clean and simple with relaxed fit kurtas with dhotis, cropped palazzos, capes, lehengas and sarees in a varied variety of colour palettes that varied from ecru, stone, ice-grey and salmon.
Nimrat, who walked the ramp in red and gold Lehenga, says that she is a huge fan of designer.
“I love her clothes. I love the fact that she does something unexpected with Indian clothes everytime. Her clothes are esay to wear and yet make you feel glamorous and I like such outfits,” said Nimrat.
The five-day fashion extravaganza started here on Wednesday at Hotel Palladium.
