Wrestling champ Geeta Phogat turned showstopper for designer Rina Singh this year. She dazzled the ramp at the Lakme Fashion Week this time. This was for the first time that Geeta turned model for the ramp. But it didn't really look like she walked the ramp for the very first time. She was very confident walking the ramp. Other than Geeta, 10 other known names walked the ramp to pay an ode to women and their inner strength. Everyone was seen dressed in beautiful ensembles from Rina's label Eka called Post Cards From Summer. Geeta wore a long layered floral ensemble.

Geeta has a Haryana connection with Rina and she was really happy to have walked the ramp for her. In an interview post the show, she shared, "This was my first experience of a ramp walk. Even though I go into a wrestling ring, I don’t get nervous, but I got a little nervous for a ramp show.” She added, “It felt really nice after meeting everyone, the models and everyone... They are inspiring.”
