Swades Foundation charity auction fundraiser

I believe the Vikram Phadnis designs worn by celebrities at this event were auctioned off in support of the Swades Foundation. Lucky us! There were many gorgeous pieces to ogle over.
Best in Sari

Bips' sari is quite stunning. The midnight blue brocade and red blouse pairs nicely with the shimmery confection of a sari. You know how I adore booti work. Only issue I had was that the biggish curls distracted from the sari itself.  A sleeker style, or an elegant chignon would've been much better. Ms. Vidya was elegant as ever in a mustard-navy blue combo. Her up-do with a few loose ringlets and coral lip accentuated the sari beautifully.
Best of the Rest

 Hands down, my fave was Neha's design. Possibly because it stood out the most from the other Phadnis creations in its black base color. I love her gold brocade blouse and the velvet trim on the flowy ghagra was a nice touch. The rest of the pack consisted of heavily net ghagras, with lots of gold and sequined embellishment. Mehr's floor-length anarkali and Sonakshi's sharara did break up the lehenga monotony a bit. In keeping with her style, Malaika's necklace was about as big as her entire blouse. Her odhni was also draped in a rather unusual, yet classically Malaika, style.
