The audience cheered loudly as ace shuttler Saina Nehwal took to the Lakme Fashion Week (LFW) Summer/Resort 2019 ramp with a glowing smile on her face. She says it was a "fantastic" experience.
"I think it is fantastic walking the ramp. It's always fun. I think this is my third or fourth time," Saina told IANS.
She looked resplendent in a yellow lehenga choli by Chennai-based designer Vaani Raghupathy, who made her debut at LFW this time.
"I think yellow looks good on me. I never thought I will be wearing yellow today but when I saw the outfit, I was happy as the colour always looks good on my skin tone," Saina said.
She said it was wonderful to be able to do something most girls would dream of.
"It was a different experience... People support you and cheer for you because you are not regularly doing this and instead are on the court fighting it out.
This is something nice... doing a delicate walk," she said with a smile
