She's sunshine, she's a bombshell. That's the takeaway from Ananya Panday's look as a showstopper for Pankaj and Nidhi at the FDCI X Lakme Fashion Week. We've been wonderstruck all day and this October night couldn't get any classier, chicer, and chattier. The designer duo's live showcase on Day 4 was ruled by colours, embroideries, and more that delivered a strong, peppy fashion punch. As the Bollywood actress walked the famed runway, our eyes were sartorially blessed.  

Pankaj and Nidhi's 'Solaris’ collection which was created in connection with Lakmé's skincare range had an array of ensembles from mini tiered dresses, gowns, pantsuits with trains, shirts, sheer tops, balloon sleeves, co-ordinated sets and a lot more, all that looked like an incredible celebration of designs. Ananya's monotone orange single-breasted mini blazer dress with structured shoulder pads, three-quarter sleeves, and shawl lapels was styled with ankle-strap stilettos that hit a striking chord in matching her accessory to her ensemble. Also, her sleek and pulled-back bun is a textbook example of how she has found a favourite hairdo. She also donned mini drop earrings. The diva's makeup with eyeliner, lipstick, and heaps of blush continued to have us stop, stare, and repeat. 

We haven't signed off yet. Keeping our sartorial madness soaring was this one-on-one conversation between the phenomenal showstopper and Pinkvilla.
