Kim wears Manish Arora at Merc fashion show

Manish Arora debuted his newest collection, 'Fascination', at the announcement of the regional round winners of the MercedesTrophy Indian golf tournament in Pune last week.

The prestigious sporting event is celebrating a decade of existence this year and the event saw models take to the runway in creations inspired by the luxury automobile, while Bollywood starlet Kim Sharma did the showstopping honours.

Of course, the line was also reflective of the designer's trademark style -- cutting edge and colourful, with eccentric leanings. Seen here is an unbelievably teensy mini with a matching ruffled overcoat, set off with boots.
