Lakme Fashion Week Summer Resort 2014 concluded yesterday night in a Grand Finale show created by designer Rajesh Pratap Singh. His outfits channeled the theme of this season – illusion and metallics. The showstopper was brand ambassador for Lakme – Kareena Kapoor who was missing last season at the Sabyasachi finale but walked the ramp yesterday night amidst the many mirrors placed strategically on the runway wearing a black gown with reflective rose motifs.
I was really curious to see how the theme was incorporated into the makeup and from these pictures, it looks like a gunmetal smokey cat eye paired with peachy cheeks and lips. I wish we had a close up to get a better look at the makeup (and the nails too!). Considering the high collar of the gown, an updo was a good choice for the hair. I think the makeup works well with the outfit though I’m not particularly loving the outfit itself.
[note color=”#FFE4C4″]Maybe the pictures don’t do this outfit justice or maybe I don’t get the designer’s aesthetic here – I was a little underwhelmed when I saw this. Doesn’t feel like a Grand Finale showstopper outfit somehow and I don’t see many people carrying this look well. I do love the makeup and the hair (and those killer heels!) though. I did love many of the other outfits from the show but this one, not so much.
