Sonam Kapoor will walk the runway, second year in a row, at India International Jewelery Week 2012 (IIJW) at the Grand Hyatt in Mumbai. Gems and Jewellery Export Promotion Council (GJEPC) will host the third edition of IIJW from 19th to 23rd August 2012.

The 27-year-old star is brand ambassador of the IIJW and will be seen strutting some spectacular jewels. In 2011 she had made two appearances as the opening and closing acts of the five day long show. For the finale she dropped jaws in a one-of-a-kind, “Queen of the Night” collar necklace, by French Jeweler Boucheron.

The five day long show will run through August 19-23. During the first four days a total of 32 prominent jewelry designers and brands will showcase the finest in jewelry designs and trends. The fifth day is reserved for showcasing best collections of the Week.

Many other Bollywood celebrities are also expected to walk the ramp as well as be the front row guests. The shows will be choreographed by choreographers Annu Ahuja, Lubna Adams, Achla Sachdev and Elric D’Souza.
