She probably took the ‘green’ carpet way too seriously! But jokes apart, we absolutely loved the laid back ‘lehenga’ on Konkana Sen. She paired the Benarasi lehenga-choli with a plain chiffon dupatta and simple hoops. Not to forget, she always has her way with the camera. Love her smile in this one!
