Mumbai, April 3 (IANS) Looking alluringly beautiful in a single-shoulder long dress, Bollywood yesteryears diva Sridevi wowed the audience as she walked the ramp at the Lakme Fashion Week here.

'It was a good experience and I was comfortable. The collection was very beautiful,' Sridevi told IANS after the show, that was also attended by her husband Boney Kapoor and daughters.

Sridevi, 44, walked the ramp for designer duo Prriya and Chintan in a golden hued dress with a corset bodice that was attached to a flared skirt. The audience reaction showed that the reigning queen of the '80s and early '90s had not lost her magic. Known as the female Amitabh Bachchan, Sridevi has given super hits like 'Chandni', 'Chaalbaaz', 'Lamhe' and 'Mr India'.

'Sridevi-ji has been in the industry for so many years and has so much of confidence. She did a brilliant job on the ramp,' said Prriya.

Inspired by 1920's French artiste Erte, the designer duo had tastefully incorporated drapes, pleats and prints in skirts, saris, dresses and jackets.

'When we looked at Erte's drapes we realised that our traditional garments are no different. So we gave a new look to them... reinvented the sari and lehenga,' she added.

Rich lavenders, greens, beige and gold dominated the colour palette.

Using fabrics like net organza, chiffon and satin, the saris had borders attached to the sleeves of the blouse, the skirts had dupattas stitched with the cholis, the single-shoulder dresses had asymmetrical hemlines and there were also dresses with umbrella sleeves.

The men's wear line offered sherwanis, jackets with deep V-necks teamed with Patiala salwars and salwars stitched in dhoti-style. The line was tastefully embellished with sequin work and intricate embroidery.
