Rather than focusing entirely on bridal looks, the pieces included necklace bibs, maang tikkas, diamond sets, polki sets, mangalsutras and avant garde metal masks.

She added to the glam hair-do with a massive maang tikka and earrings set in gold and emeralds. Completing the look were a gold floral bracelet and bracelet ring.
The other cynosure of the evening was diva Chitrangada Singh, who walked the ramp in a maroon off-shoulder gown paired with a huge polki raani haar, earrings and cuffs.

Filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar, wearing a royal kalgi brooch on a patterned sherwani teamed with a gold pocket square and daftar slot online white pants, was the showstopper for the men’s collection.
