'Queen' star Kangana Ranaut gave a sensuous twist to the traditional wedding look as she donned a royal avatar on the ramp at the ongoing India Bridal Fashion Week.

The 27-year-old actress turned showstopper for designer Suneet Varma, making a bold statement in a velvet red saree worn with an embellished blouse and completing the regal look with a Rajasthani headgear.

"It is an amazing collection and because Suneet is a dear friend, it feels great to have walked for him. He did some mirror work in some of his clothes and I have told him I want that for my wedding," Kangana said, adding that she would like to wear a light-weighed lehenga on her special day.

Varma said he would like to style a red lehenga for the actress as he feels the colour suits her daring and fiery personality.

"Kangana is a gutsy actress, very forward-thinking. She has found a relevant, important niche for herself, which very few actresses have been able to do. She represents the Indian women with lot of power and will. So, I think red is her colour," the designer said.

Varma's golden crowns, which became the talking point of his collection, drew inspiration from Shekhawati region of Rajasthan.

"Inspiration for the headgears and my collection was Shekhawati. I incorporated the miniature paintings from Rajasthan and the drawings and art works from Shekhawati for these crowns and then used our own elements and added two shades of gold, making them not too bright and not that dull," Varma said.

The designer's line was high on bling and colour, as he used heavy embellishments and experimented with hues of pink, peach, red, white, golden and black on lehangas, kurtis and sarees.

The show also saw a mid-air performance by an artiste.
