Kareena, who is the brand ambassador for Lakme, was the muse for Dongre’s Summer/Resort collection which was inspired by liquid gold/argan oil, which is the main component of the new range of lipsticks by the beauty company.

Incidentally, the actress is also the face of Dongre’s western wear brand And.

“I have a great association with Anita. She is very inspirational, not just to me but to all women across the country who relate to her clothes and wear her brand,” she says.

Internationally acclaimed make-up artist Donald Simrock, whose client list includes name like Lady Gaga and Nicki Minaj, did Kareena’s make-up for the show.

Kareena’s designer friend Manish Malhotra, actress Sangeeta Bijlani, Diana Penty, Gul Panag, Shabana Azmi, Shriya Saran and Juhi Chawla were present during the show to cheer the actress from the sidelines.

When asked why her husband Saif Ali Khan was not present at the show, Kareena says the actor is busy taking care of Taimur at home.

“I have kept it very light because it is summer and you don’t want to be bogged down. There is embroidery but I have kept it minimal. It feel like you are wearing nothing. I have tried to use the traditional craft and contemporise it,” Dongre says.
