From elegant lehenga cholis to blingy sarees, the Bollywood bigwigs truly brought their fashion A-game to what was the biggest wedding of the year. Whereas Sonam surprised us with her refreshing take on minimalism for her bridal looks, some of the B’town divas in attendance did not shy from going big. That being said, let’s talk about the five looks that made it to our list of favorites.
Kareena Kapoor Khan in Manish Malhotra
Is that body really post-baby? Yes. Also, is that a saree she’s wearing? No. Bebo donned a whole look done in gold by none other than Manish Malhotra, which included a choli with a very flattering neckline, a lehenga/skirt and a dupatta worn to look like a saree pallu. Talk about bringin’ it. Girls, take note – No jewellery, no accessories and no fussy hair. We are sold.
Alia Bhatt in Sabyasachi
This was truly a surprise. Alia Bhatt who is usually seen in hues of pink or blues went the other way and showed up looking absolutely ethereal in a very unusually coloured Sabyasachi lehenga. We love her choice of simple hair and natural makeup. Needless to say, she did complete justice carrying off the beautifully designed ensemble.
Janhvi Kapoor in Manish Malhotra
Fashion sense seems to be genetic as well. Atleast that’s what cousin Janhvi Kapoor proved at Sonam’s big day. She was all sparkles in what we are guessing to be a baby blue sequined choli and lehenga. It would be apt to say that she really brought out the princess element by keeping her hair simple and parted at the centre, adding a pair of earrings and teaming the outfit with a ruffle detail dupatta. We are, however, still undecided on the ruffles.
Kangana Ranaut in Shah Gaurang
Kangana’s saree was a real surprise. Word is that she ditched the idea of getting a custom designer outfit and instead picked out a hand woven Gaurang Shah saree right out of her own closet. Needless to say, the dusty pink and gold looked breathtaking styled with her gorgeous choker and matching earrings. The dusky makeup was right on point as well. Full marks for owning the look. Please don’t miss that gold khussa! We love her look head to toe.
Katrina Kaif in Manish Malhotra
Whites, golds and pastels were the predominant colors of the night, which is exactly what made Katrina’s stunning red and skin Manish Malhotra attire really stand out. She truly knows how to make a statement without having to try hard. The beige lehenga with floral red sequins was undoubtedly a showstopper. Soft curls, one statement piece of jewellery and muted makeup – hallelujah.
