Bangkok, Jun 7 (UNI) A star spangled fashion extravaganza marked the second day's proceedings of the IIFA Awards weekend here tonight with Indian stars led by Kareena Kapoor sharing the ramp with Thai models.
Bollywood actors Harman Baweja, Vivek Oberoi, Zayed Khan, Riteish Deshmukh, Aftab Shivdasani and Thai Miss Universe Khun Farung Yuthithum joined the ramp walk as part of the IIFA showcasing unique events in an attempt to enable Indian Cinema fans experience stardom.
Dubbed as the highpoints of this year's IIFA celebrations, the glamorous event presented fashion lines from India and Thailand in a star-studded presentation. The event was more special as its beneficiary was the IIFA Foundation-- a charity organisation set up by the IIFA to support families of the film industry workers who have been adversely affected during the film production.
The glitzy extravaganza, hosted by film maker Karan Johar, showcased designs by Thai fashion house Alta Moda, Mufti, Sabyasachi, Rohit Bal, Manish Malhotra and Vikram Phadnis.
Choreographed by Lubna Adams, it featured 25 Thai models and 15 Indian models adorning jewelry from Gitanjali Lifestyle and Diamrusa.
While Kareena Kapoor added the glamour quotient for Manish Malhotra's designs, the cast of forthcoming film De Talli-- Aftab Shivdasani, Riteish Deshmukh and Ayesha Takia-- walked the ramp for Vikram Phadnis. The Love Story 2050 couple Priyanka Chopra and Harman Baweja were showstoppers for Rohit Bal and the Mission Istanbul cast -- Zayed Khan, Vivek Oberoi, Shriya Saran, Shabbir Ahluwalia, Nikitin Dheer, Shweta Bharadwaj set the ramp on fire, while showcasing the look of their soon-to-be-released film.
Acid Factory, a film that has just begun production, unveiled its first look with Dia Mirza, Fardeen Khan and Dino Morea scorching the ramp. Alta Moda's gorgeous brand ambassador and reigning Miss Thailand-Universe, Khun Farung Yuthithum, walked the ramp adding the oriental quotient to the extravaganza.
