Lakme Fashion Week 2018 Day 1, held in Mumbai has to be marked as the cutest in its history. Not only because it was Mira Kapoor’s sizzling debut runway walk as a showstopper, but also, she walked hand-in-hand with her darling hubby. Shahid Kapoor and Mira walked as showstoppers for their one of the favourite designers, Anita Dongre.
When Shahid and Mira tried to pull off a twirling moment midway on the ramp, Mira’s dupatta played a spoilsport. But that awkward moment effortlessly became the romantic and cute moment between this much-in-love couple. Their chemistry has always set the bar high for romance. They both created a fairy tale show with some romantic twirling moments and they looked like a perfect bride and groom. Mira was channelling a flower print, cream-blue-pink lehenga which she wore with dull gold jewellery. She kept her locks loose and embellished them with flowers that gave her look a graceful, ethereal vibe. Her hubby Shahid wore an elegant ivory bandhgala-sherwani.
After walking the ramp, Shahid tweeted, "Excited to have walked for @anitadongre 's @lakmefashionwk collection tonight. Great to see creations that will truly define #FutureCouture, designed with exclusive fabrics of the future from R | Elan @RElanOfficial." Since it was Mira’s debut ramp walk as a showstopper, she was very nervous. After the show, she was quoted as saying, “I was very nervous before walking. Everyone walk with so much attitude and poise, I was scared off falling, but it was amazing. Shahid made me comfortable!”
The day concluded with the Anita Dongre’s collection titled Songs Of Summer. What could be the better curtain raiser for the future couture than the lovebirds showcasing the collection? After the show, Shahid said, "Mira looks as beautiful today as she looked that day. And maybe we could have got married again today."
On asked if he likes Mira more in traditional or western wear, he remarked, "It's very important for men to understand that women should wear what they feel comfortable in and we should support them. It's very tiring for a woman to always think about what the guy thinks and other way round too." He further added, "We've to accept each other for who we are that's the only reason for us to make us work because we're from very different backgrounds. She likes me for who I am and I like her for who she is, so whatever she wears, it's awesome.”
It was also the other way around, as it was Mira who convinced Shahid to walk the ramp. Shahid said, "Anita is Mira's dear friend and I'm her dear husband." Talking about the show, Mira expressed, "I have to be honest, I did ask Shahid that I hope I wouldn't fall. Everyone walks with so much attitude and they've been doing it for so many years, obviously, I was really nervous but I knew I was in safe hands." She further said, "The moment we stepped on the ramp, I just looked at him and said all the best but I needed all the luck."
We just couldn't take our eyes off the love-struck couple, Mira and Shahid. Hope your romance stays alive always!
