If Marcello Rubini had watched Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan glide down the ramp at the launch of the Longines Dolce Vita collection at the Taj Palace hotel on Sardar Patel Marg,he would have approved. Wearing a flowing blue gown by designer duo Gauri and Nainika Karan,Rai-Bachchan made for a pretty picture as she spoke about working with actors Kate Winslet and Chi Ling Lin for the new television commercial for the brand,shot across Rome. It is always a pleasure to work with like-minded women,and we had a lot of fun together , she said.
To mark the launch of the collection,the Durbar Hall was transformed in to Federico Fellinis Roma of the 60s,complete with Italian jazz numbers,and a choreographed performance by two dancers. Models draped in rich shades of wine reds,burgundy,dark greens,blacks and whites,also by the same designers,showcased ten watches from the collection,priced in the range of Rs 95,000 to Rs 2.6 lakh. With husband Abhishek endorsing sister company Omega,the actor insisted that neither of them interfered in the others endorsement deals.
We are extremely loyal to our brands,and do not impose on each others preferences, she quipped.
