It was a curious case indeed. Maheep Kapoor, the sister-in-law of Sridevi, had no famous name from Bollywood as her showstopper for her showing on Day One of HDIL India Couture Week. Her not-so-famous husband Sanjay Kapoor did decide to join her on the ramp impromptu and take a bow for some reason. But we'd rather forget that part of the show.

A jewellery line, the pieces are priced anywhere between a crore and Rs 5.5 crore. Whoever said there was recession happening in India?

The collection was called Heirlooms and comprised pieces that Maheep says can be passed on in the family.

Maheep describes her collection as fine, exquisite and timeless and something that ranges from the classical to the whimsical. Surely this one falls in the latter category.

The Royals and Diamonds Classic set sported by Diandra Soares here has been crafted in 18k white gold and was the final piece in Maheep's show. With 65 brilliant diamonds, this one is surely to make heads turn.

Even as she decked up all her ladies in stunning pieces, designer Maheep Kapoor chose to go almost all-bare except for a bracelet she sported in her right hand. On her left, she had her husband Sanjay Kapoor.
