One of the biggest names in Bollywood Kareena Kapoor was in Nairobi last weekend for a photo shoot for a cover of a leading magazine.
Ms Kapoor is an Indian actress, the daughter of actors Randhir and Babita Kapoor and the younger sister of actress Karisma Kapoor.
Kapoor was in Nairobi courtesy of Indian designer Manish Malhotra who showcased his latest collection dubbed Sensual Affair at an invite only affair held at Two Rivers Mall. The event was exclusively sponsored by Victoria Commercial Bank which treated their special clients to a fashionable experience. The runway show featured 26 Kenyan models from Mochez Models and 15 International Models from India.
Kapoor graced the runway as the showstopper of the event. Pakistani singer Sarmad Qadeer also hit the stage with an exciting performance while DJ Deeshal was on the decks. The event was organised by Ranee Productions.
Kapoor is noted for playing a variety of characters in a range of film genres from romantic comedies to crime dramas. Kapoor is the recipient of several awards, including six Filmfare Awards, and is one of Bollywood’s most popular and highest-paid actresses.
After making her acting debut in the 2000 war film Refugee, Kapoor established herself in Hindi cinema with roles in the historical drama Aoka, and the blockbuster melodrama Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham.
She is married to actor Saif Ali Khan, with whom she has a son. Kapoor’s off-screen life is the subject of widespread coverage in India. She has a reputation for being outspoken and assertive, and is recognised for her contributions to the film industry through her fashion style and film roles.
In addition to acting, Kapoor is a stage performer and has contributed as a co-author to three books: an autobiographical memoir and two nutrition guides. She has also launched her own clothing line in association with the retail chain Globus.
For the cover of Harper’s Bazaar Bride, Kapoor weaved magic in a white corset in sheer with extravagant icy blue embellishments on it. A neckpiece set in diamonds and emeralds from Rosentiques Fine Jewellery added elegance to the actor’s attire but what really stunned everyone was her fierce make-up. Makeup artist Mickey Contractor chose to give the actor dark and smokey eyes, which exuded mystery and sultriness and rounded it off with a nude lip and sleek hair.
The renowned fashion designer Malhotra featured muse Kapoor as the show-stopper who wore an impressive designer dress from Manish’s Nairobi collection which made her look ethereal and regal as she walked the ramp.
