MUMBAI, India — It was quite a showing for the media kickoff of Lakmé Fashion Week resort 2014 as designers and their muses set the tone for the shows, which opened today here.
The appearance of 20 designers with their actress muses also set the tone for a playful acceptance of something the fashion week has long resisted — the Bollywood factor. The influence of Bollywood has raised eyebrows over the years, with some observers believing that serious fashion was interrupted by celebrity endorsements, particularly those from the film industry.
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
