Last week saw Mumbai’s anticipated fashion event of the year with some of the biggest names in Bollywood walking at the Lakme Fashion Week that concluded last evening with Kareena Kapoor Khan as the showstopper.
The 5 day spread fashion soiree had quite a few highs with one of the highlight being VJ, actress and singer Sophie who’s earlier graced the fashion week as a showstopper albeit this time with a legit live performance as she sang two of the greatest hits by Dua Lipa.
Originally British, Sophie Choudry moved to Mumbai to pursue her dreams and in no time rose to being called the original pop diva with her songs like ‘Ek Pardesi and Mera Babhu Chail Chabeela‘ & now belongs to the creme de la creme crowd of the Bolly town. Sophie travels across the globe for her live gigs & this year made a debut at the Lakme fashion week as she performed live on stage.
Sophie took to her social media to share videos of her performance and in no time was flooded with messages being compared to the icon Dua Lipa herself. Her close friend Varun Dhawan was all praises for Sophie.
Sophie shares her excitement, ‘When designers ask you to be their showstopper, it’s like being their muse & it’s always special. In my case, it was the designer’s first show so hopefully, it will always be memorable for him. What was even more special for me though was that I got to sing for SVA couture. Of course I do a lot of wedding & corporate performances but the fashion world doesn’t get to see me sing live very often & I got to perform 2 of my favorite songs ‘One Kiss’ bu Dua Lipa & ‘Ain’t nobody’ so it felt great since the response was so incredible.‘
