Our very own ANJALI LAMA seems to have totally brought it at the opening of Lakme Fashion Week Summer Resort 2017 for designer Monisha Jaising in a gorgeous high-slit dress! So elegant and classy! The opening show took place on Costa neoClassica, a luxury cruise currently in Mumbai – apparently this also marks the first fashion show on a cruise and also the very first time a transgender model is participating at the Lakme Fashion Week. Yay! That’s the way to go!

The best thing about Anjali’s story is that she had auditioned for Lakme Fashion Week in 2016 but was rejected. Thankfully that wasn’t the end for her and she’s totally getting her moment right now. Anjali wasn’t the only Nepali model at the show as New York based Nepali model Varsha Thapa was also walking for the designer. Indian actress Sonakshi Sinha was the showstopper at the opening event.
