Renowned fashion designer Manish Malhotra kickstarted India Couture Week 2021 with his enchanting collection Nooraniyat- The Bridal Edit. His beautiful, enchanting muse for this collection was none other than actress Kriti Sanon; the Bollywood star donned a beautiful heavily embroidered red lehenga set from the Nooraniyat collection.
However, this isn’t the first time that Manish Malhotra had an actress for a muse. Over the years, the designer has created some exceptional designs with some of the most desirable faces in Bollywood. Have a look below.
1. Aishwarya Rai
Aishwarya was the showstopper for Manish Malhotra’s first-ever fashion show in Doha, Qatar. Donning a shiny white and red embroidered gown with a floral design, the ensemble was teamed with a flowing cape and a striking blue flower hair accessory.
