Soha Ai Khan
Soha Ali Khan honored her Nawabi heritage by choosing a regal color for her outfit: gold. She donned a Sabyasachi lehenga from his ‘Opium’ collection, which was a beautifully crafted gold-dusted piece. Reportedly, her mother and veteran actress, Sharmila Tagore, suggested incorporating a touch of ‘kesariya orange’ to enhance the look. The result was stunning, with Khan appearing radiant in the outfit.
Designer Anamika Khanna revealed in an interview with Vogue that the creation of Mira Rajput’s wedding lehenga was a collaborative effort between the two of them. Khanna said that Rajput had a clear vision for her bridal look and wanted something “gentle and more pastel – nothing that would devour her.” Thus, they designed a pink pastel lehenga, consisting of a short-sleeved blouse and a beautifully embroidered skirt. Khanna described the lehenga as an intricate blend of traditional artisanship and contemporary design, featuring 3D flowers, pearls, floral embroidery with French knots, and delicate zardozi work. It took 67 artisans 48 days to complete the lehenga. Rajput paired the lehenga with two dupattas, one draped like a sari and the other as a tulle dupatta, and added a touch of color to her outfit with navratna jewelry, which are crafted using nine different gemstones.
