NEW DELHI — The silhouette is slowly changing at the fashion weeks in India, notably so at the Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week here.
The five-day event, which ran from Oct. 9 to 13, finished with a finale by Ashish N Soni, the red tinged multilevel stage with steps, raised platforms, vantage points and a live band stationed above, adding drama to the fit-and-flare silhouettes reminiscent of the Fifties. Soni’s passion for polka dots complemented the knee-length dresses, wavy hair, red lipstick and dapper tuxedo styles. There were black-and-white outfits for eveningwear and black tie-events in silk, satin and lace. Bollywood actor Anil Kapoor added a last bit of sizzle to the show.
“I was touched by the fact that she lost her father, really before his time, and it was a real shock. She had two young children, she was married and she was expecting that she would have her own life for a good 25 years,” said Claire Foy about playing a young Queen Elizabeth in Netflix’s The Crown.

“It transcends the genre that is you think of a sci-fi show — you don’t expect it to be so profound or emotionally riveting,” Evan Rachel Wood told WWD of her Emmy nominated role in Westworld. styled by @samanthamcmillen_stylist 📸 @emmanmontalvan #emmys2017 #wwdeye
