Katrina Kaif sizzles 'Barbie All Doll'd Up' at LFW - DAY 1

There could not have been a better opening of the Fall/Winter 2009 Lakme Fashion Week (LFW) than the spectacular “Barbie All Doll'd Up” show that rocked the ramp.

It was a perfect combination of style and glamour as 50 years of Barbie was celebrated along with Lakme Fashion Week, the pioneers of the fashion weeks in India having completed a decade.

Dress the Barbie contest attracted 75 entries from top designers in the country from which the 20 short listed creations were showcased on the ramp at the dazzling show.

It was the winning dress by Nishka Lulla that Bollywood's glamorous star Katrina Kaif modeled as the show stopper of the day. Katrina Kaif will be the Indian celebrity on whose likeness a Barbie doll will be created by Mattel Toys India Pvt. Ltd.

The Ballroom of the Grand Hyatt Hotel, Mumbai with the extra long ramp was dressed in hundreds of metres of the characteristic Barbie pink silk with the famed Barbie logo all around. The venue almost resembled Barbie's pretty house and it was a place where a girl of any age would have loved to be.

Pretty, frothy party dresses and gowns that were a delightful blend of the east and west turned into great fusion wear as they floated down the ramp. Top ramp models were dressed in brilliant creations that could have made Barbie's wardrobe the most envied in the world.

Starting with the Barbie song for the “Plastic and Fantastic Barbie” the accompanying audio visual gave a flash back of Barbie through the five decades and Barbie dolls around the world.

Designer Vikram Phadnis's creation opened the show with a white tulle layered gown with a crystal bodice, followed by Wendell Rodricks who showed a gown with a silver bodysuit that could move effortlessly from Red Carpet to Disco. More dazzling gowns floated down the ramp by designers Vivek Kumar, Neeta Lulla, Atit Bhatt, Anand Bhushan, Tanvi Kedia, Abdul Haldar, Ruchi Mehta, Niak, Jyoti Sharma (a stunning shell pleated will- power shaded mini) Sonam Mehta, Prashant/Sudha and Shantanu/Nikhil. The Shirt Company that markets the Barbie Clothing Line in India had tiny tot, Chanel Robinson in a lovely red net gown.

Finally the beauteous Katrina Kaif radiantly glided down the ramp in Nishka Lulla's award winning red shaded tiered mini with a brocade bodice clasped with a giant gold bow at the back.

It was a show that was full of glitz, glamour, style and elegance and there couldn't have been a better way to start the Fall/Winter 2009 season at Lakme Fashion Week then with “Barbie all Doll'd Up”!
