Raima Sen hot in designer Joy Mitra show at Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week
Raima Sen hit the headlines of fashion magazines with her sizzling walk on ramp for Joy Mitra at Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week. The Bong bombshell set the ramp on fire as showstopper for the fashion designer Joy Mitra show, titled “Chokher Bali” after a Bengali art film carrying the same name, from filmmaker Rituparon Ghosh’s repertoire. The show was a tribute to the legendary art filmmaker who had cast Raima Sen along with Aishwarya Rai in his celluloid adaptation of the novel Chokher Bali (The Eyesore) by Rabindranath Tagore.
Raima’s appearance in a signature ensemble by Joy Mitra was a departure from the traditional Bengali fashion that Rituparno Ghosh celebrated in most of his movies (for details, check Traditional Bengal Fashion in Art Films of Rituparno Ghosh). Joy Mitra dressed her in a lehenga-style saree with heavy zardosi embroidery. It was an excellent piece of ethnic fashion with a miasma of yellow, orange, red, green, black and gold. Raima with showers of applause around her made it big for the designer on the fifth day of Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week.
