Salman Khan, a very charming and known superstar, became Manish Malhotra’s special muse for his theatrical collection that was inspired by the 1950s. Salman was unquestionably the best pick given that he pulled off the complete ensemble with such ease and glitz. Salman looked handsome in an all-black Manish Malhotra suit. Salman has made headlines over the past several days owing to his fresh and unique French beard style. When the actor put out a photo on Instagram when he arrived at IIFA, comments from fans all over the world had already taken over the section.
In a blue Manish Malhotra ensemble, Nora Fatehi radiated the beauty of a princess. The outfit was extremely lovely, and Nora’s makeup and hairstyle, together with her choice of clothing, gave off the ideal mood for the 1950s.
“The collection is reflective of ‘old world charm meets the new world’ to create something breakthrough and imaginative. This collaboration aligns our joint synergy of innovation, progress and creativity which inspires with NEXA and we are excited to exhibit our line at IIFA Rocks 2023.,” said Manish.
