John Abraham rocks the ramp for Rocky S

     Next

Next
Celebrated designer Rocky S brought Day Three of the LFW to an opulent close with a great mix of old world charm, the gothic punk look and Bollywood heavyweight John Abraham. The focal point of the collection was definitely the classic suit -- Rocky aspired to present menwear that would be right at home at a vintage vampire wedding! Was he inspired by the hit Twilight movie series, glorifying imaginary bloodsuckers and their romances? Looks like it.

The show opens with a seductress in gleaming gold, her loose tresses and gladiator heels exuding a menacing air. Wife of Dracula? Could be!
