ICW 2023: `Mermaids` Kiara, Sobhita, Ananya & Bhumi slay in thigh-slit skirts

The India Couture Week was a dazzling affair. Leading Bollywood faces turned showstoppers for renowned fashion designers. From Kiara Advani, Ranbir Kapoor to Sara Ali Khan-Aditya Roy Kapur, Ananya Panday, Athiya Shetty, Disha Patani, Bhumi Pednekar, Sobhita Dhulipala and Ishaan Khatter, stars lit up the ramp. The fashion soiree is taking place in Delhi and will reportedly end on August 2. 

Until now, the ramp has been dominated by edgy couture. However, there`s a pattern noticed in the style of outfits worn by the female stars who walked for designers. The India Couture Week brought back the chic and elegant bralette and mermaid skirts with thigh slits. Giving it a new and fresh touch with the styling, designers highlighted the trend once again. Be it Kiara`s `Barbie-core` outfit by Falguni Shane Peacock or Ananya`s metallic ramp attire by Rimzim Dadu, this style took over the runway like never before.
