The Arpita – Aayush wedding from the “Khan Khandhan “was undoubtedly the biggest Indian wedding of the year. The wedding ceremony was conducted at the TajFalaknuma Palace in Hyderabad and was followed by an elaborate reception in Mumbai.
Saris and lehengas reflecting the grandiosity of the occasion were favoured by the Muslim bride. While bright shades of red and brown are more often associated with weddings, this time white and pastel shades seemed to be the trend.
Shraddha Kapoor in a Shivan &Naresh sari, Jacqueline Fernandes looked her best self with a in a black Anamika Khanna outfit and Dhivya Khosla in a custom-made Gaurav Gupta couture gown were some of the stand out attires of the evening.
Then there was Priyanka Chopra who stole the show effortlessly with a royal blue sari coupled with a gold blouse. Her outfit was perfectly accentuated by the choice of accessories and make up.
Another woman who never ceases to look perfect is Malaika Arora Khan! The bride’s sister-in-law teamed up with Seema Khan and Arpita Mehra to craft her looks. With an impeccable sense of style she proved to be the cynosure of every occasion right through till the end.
Former Miss Universe Lara Dutta looked every bit Indian in her Ritu Kumar couture combined with an exquisite piece of diamond jewellery from Anmol. The VJ-turned-actress and a close accomplice of the Khan family for many years, Mini Mathur was a part of the celebrations. The deep blue lehenga with sequined work from Sanjay Garg was truly a masterpiece. However why she chose to accessorize her look with a pink potli is quite uncertain.
The fashion diva of Bollywood, Katrina Kaif was there at the occasion for old times’ sake. The Anamika Khan Anarkalis that she adorned for the wedding and the reception though stunning looked very similar thus failing to make a statement.
In all, intricate and shimmering designs with minimal accessories and chic fabric seemed to be the pick of the season.
Saris and lehengas were what most of them wore for the events. Young dames from the tinsel town were swashbuckling in sexy saris designed by the top most designers of the era. Malaika Arora Khan, Lara Dutta and Elli Avram were some of the beauties who personified sartorial elegance in every bit.
