Cashing in on her re-established item queen tag, she was in the Capital for a fashion show by diamond jewellery brand ORRA at the launch of their flagship store.The glamorous fashion show displayed collections of jewellery crafted by ORRA’s design centers in London, New York, Tokyo, Antwerp and Mumbai. ORRA is a part of Rosyblue – one of the largest diamond manufacturing companies in the world.While Carol Gracias, Indrani Dasgupta, Krishna Somani and other international models showcased the jewellery on the runway, Malaika was the showstopper at the event in a dazzling bustier worth a million euros (approximately Rs ix crore) that was crafted from more than five hundred carats of the finest Belgian diamonds.These multi-million dollar “one of a kind” creations have only been seen on lingerie giant Victoria Secret’s runways sported by supermodels such as Heidi Klum, Marissa Miller, Miranda Kerr and Alessandra Ambrosio.Unlike her international counterparts, Malaika’s glittering ensemble was in fact not a bra but a bustier that she wore with a sari.She may be adventurous on screen but off it the lass knows how to flaunt her style without overly offending Indian sensibilities.While most of the models wore cocktail gowns that showed off the jewellery, Malaika’s sari hid most of the glittering bustier. The Bollywood siren might have chosen an Indian ensemble to stay true to her current “munni” image.Commenting on the launch, ORRA CEO Vijay Jain, said: “India is now ready for a whole segment of luxury shopping and ORRA’s diamond boutique offers the customers just that.”advertisementlast_img read more
