The 2016 edition of FDCI India Couture Week, embarked upon a riveting journey with an impressive list of most coveted couturiers at the Taj Palace. The shows were all about plunge neck blouses, long skirts, floor length anarkalis embellished with beads and heavy embroidery, tight buns with crystal hair accessories. Let's take a look at the Bollywood celebrities who graced the runway as showstoppers for several designers at the India Couture Week 2016.

Kangana Ranaut:


Dressed in a maroon choli, adorned with mirror work teamed up with a heavily embroidered lehenga, Kangana looked every inch royal that she is. The actress walked the ramp for designer and her good friend Manav Gangwani. She completed her look with her signature curls and opted for a minimal make up. The collection elegantly captured the era of Mughals with showcasing intricately designer lehengas, sherwanis, saris and flowing kaftans.

Deepika Padukone and Fawad Khan:

"The last time I walked for him (Malhotra) I thought that (outfit) was the heaviest. This is much much heavier...," quipped the actress.

At India Couture Week 2016, Deepika Padukone stole the show when she turned showstopper for the ace designer Manish Malhotra. The actress served up pure glamour as she sashayed down the runway in an exquisite red ensemble. A lehenga embellished with intricate gold petal work was all that took to make Deepika look like a goddess in red! The off-shoulder blouse with a plunging neck line further spruced up her look for the evening. The suave looking Pakistani star, Fawad was welcomed to the ramp by loud cheers and whistles from the crowd as he walked in a black Kurta and deep maroon palazzo-pyjama and opened the grand show for the designer.

Divya Khosla Kumar:


Actress-filmmaker Divya Khosla Kumar turned showstopper for designer Reynu Taandon of India Couture Week 2016. She looked every bit beautiful as an interpretation of the young modern bride.

Yami Gautam:

Yami looked drop-dead gorgeous in a short choli teamed up with a blue lehenga. While the floral motifs dominated the collection, Yami's outfit was adorned with a monument one!

In 2016, Yami Gatuam became muse for designers Rimple and Harpreet Narula for ICW. Dressed in a midnight blue bridal lehenga-choli, Yami walked the ramp and lit up the stage with her enchanting smile. The outfit was from the designers’ couture show titled ‘Hiraayat’.

Saiyami Kher:


The actress turned showstopper for the ace designer Gaurav Gupta. She looked drop-dead gorgeous as she sashayed down the ramp in a blue attire from the designer's collection. Gupta's creative line-up cast a magical spell on the ramp!
