Silver Indian beads and pendants were strewn about gloriously, with several models wearing Galliano-esque headdresses. But it was the last story of diaphanous silk dresses that proved most enchanting--remember the cerulean number from last season that ended up (avec slip) on Freida Pinto at the Oscars?
