Mugdha Godse in a tribute to Gayatri Devi

The Royal Rajputana Collection by eminent designer Pria Kataaria Puri was showcased on Day One of Lakme Fashion Week -- and she got model-turned-actress Mugdha Godse to wear her showstopping creation.

The line is a tribute to the late Maharani Gayatri Devi -- in the designer's own words, "Her elegant chiffon saris  combined with a string of pearls have become legendary in the world of fashion."

Check out the video!

As such, the creations are all in jewel colours like topaz and emerald; the embellishments are in crystal, semi-precious stones and long strings of pearls, and the fabrics are mostly French chiffons and satins, with digital prints of the actual jewellery that the Maharani wore. Check it out.

Alicia Raut opened the show in this printed and shimmer-tinged sari, pearls cascading down her neck.
