Bollywood beauties added some much needed glamour to the third day of the BMW India Bridal Fashion Week 2014 on Saturday evening. However, the wow-factor started off on a rough note as Rockstar actress Nargis Fakhri had a major oops moment when the slit of her black gown tore upwards while she was walking the ramp as showstopper for jewellery brand Azva.The US-born model-turned-actress handled the situation confidently, and covered her leg with the flair of the gown while laughing it off with a radiant smile. Notwithstanding the malfunction, Fakhri sizzled in the plunging neck black dress, which had been accessorised with an elaborate gold choker necklace from the brand. The collection featured smart gold designs that were teamed with western wear dresses, skirts and trousers, giving a fresh take on how to sport traditional gold jewellery with a modern twist.

Entrepreneur Charu Sachdev walked the ramp for the show in an asymmetricalpleated anarkali with embroidered churidar and a transparent flowing jacket.advertisementThe highlight of the day was the much-awaited show by ace designer Suneet Varma, who pulled in the crowd with his elaborate set design, making it the first show of this year’s fashion week with a grand stage set-up. The show began with aerial silk acrobatics artist Goura Prema performing atop a life-size elephant made of papier-mache.
