March 26, 2010- The Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week that was to begin on 24th March 2010 and which could not be started due to the lack of a fire safety permit, at last kicked off a day later on March 25, 2010. The first day of the 15th edition of the Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week (WLIFW) Autumn-Winter 2010 displayed the latest collections of India's top fashion designers but lacked the glamor of Celebrity Showstoppers.

Bollywood Actresses could not Walk the Ramp

The first day of any fashion show is exciting and the fashion designers, according to the latest trends, had roped in top Bollywood actors to walk the ramp. However, this could not happen on the first day of Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week that had beauties like Sushmita Sen, Tabu and Minissha Lamba on the list of its celebrity show stoppers. All the Bollywood actresses were to walk the ramp for the top designers of India- Ritu Beri, JJ Valaya and Ranna Gill respectively. Now it is uncertain whether these celebrities would be able to walk the ramp on the rescheduled day, tentatively set to be Monday.
