Ask any fashion enthusiast in the country if Sonam Kapoor’s style game is unparalleled in Bollywood and the answer will be an affirmative on most counts. Sure, the likes of Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra have managed to keep most of us on our toes with their drop-dead gorgeous looks, but no one does it like the bride Sonam Kapoor, who is on her way to marry her longtime beau Anand Ahuja in a private Sikh wedding ceremony on May 8.
Now, since she has enjoyed every form of superlative from the fashion watchdogs and connoiseurs alike for her near perfect sense of style, it is only natural to expect that the Bollywood celebs would arrive at their ethnic best. This one is sure going to be a fashionable summer wedding in all sense of the word. After all, the bride is known to keep it classy and elegant. It’s no surprise that she has put her best foot forward, given it’s her wedding celebrations.
For her reception, Sonam looked ethereal in a white-and-grey lehenga. Now, one would usually choose a bold and vibrant colour for the reception, but being a true blue fashionista, she went for quite unusual colours. What’s more? The full-sleeve ensemble had a feather-encrusted detail on the shoulders.
She accessorised her outfit with a heavy neckpiece and rounded off with a dewy sheen and bold red lips.
For her wedding ceremony, Sonam chose a red Anuradha Vakil lehenga. We were a little surprised as there were rumours of the Veere Di Wedding actor going for an Anamika Khanna design, but the bride knows best and it is only expected that for the wedding celebrations, the fashionista would go for something stunning. Considering how lovely she looks, we think the unconventional choice worked beautifully for her.
Meanwhile, groom Anand Ahuja looked nothing short of royalty in a pastel sherwani and pagdi (turban). He accessorised his outfit with layered pearl and ruby necklaces.
After the ceremony, Sonam Kapoor changed into a soft pastel pink lehenga.
At the mehendi function, the bride was seen in a beautiful Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla outfit with delicate gold work on the border of her lehenga and dupatta that she paired with a heavily embroidered blouse. We like how she kept it purley traditional with a heavy gold jadau choker from her mom Sunita Kapoor’s collection which she also wore at the Cannes 2014 red carpet, the all-time favourite jhumkas and a maang tika.
Other than the outfit, what worked out for the best is her make-up with heavily done smokey eyes, well-defined brows and a nude pink lip shade with touches of blush on her cheeks.
Let the fashion gala begin!
