Few would disagree to the fact that for a woman, the most important day is her wedding! No wonder she leaves no stones unturned to make sure that she looks her gorgeous best on the D-Day. Consciously or subconsciously, we also can hardly deny that our lives are, in myriad ways, strongly influenced by movie-stars and celebrities! When we think of the A-list actresses of current times, the name that almost instantaneously springs to our lips is that of Kareena Kapoor! Oops, we almost forgot that she now is Kareena Kapoor Khan! Yes, this stunning diva who is also an extremely talented actress tied the knot with long-time beau Saif Ali Khan, often referred to as the Nawab of Pataudi in October 2012. The marital union of two such celebrated members of the film fraternity sure did manage to make headlines in page. One of the most discussed aspects of the news was undoubtedly Kareena, the bride’s attire, and of course, it does not come as a surprise that countless women all over India were curious to find out what she wore for her wedding. Many of them, in their heart of hearts, might have even desired to wear something similar on theirs, for, there’s no questioning the fact that Kareena is one of the most fashionable and widely followed style icon of the contemporary generation. Her wedding carnival began with the Sangeet ceremony in which she dazzled in an orange-yellow lehnga and a shimmering golden choli. Green bangles and a low hair-bun that was decorated with gajras completed her bridal look. On her ‘mehndi’ a day later, she chose to sport a vibrant pink saree with diamond jewellery. For the wedding registration, she took the simpler look and yet managed to be an eye-candy in a mehndi-coloured ‘churidaar’ suit and a red ‘dupatta’. During the exchange of vows, she carried on the family tradition of her in-laws by wearing Sharmila Tagore’s ‘gharara’, which she had worn on her own ‘nikaah.’ Again, Kareena resorted to her favorite designer Manish Malhotra, whose sizzling creation – a burgundy coloured embellished ‘gharara’ with maroon ‘dupatta’ made her look all the more elegant and royal. The grand reception party that was held in Delhi saw her in a ravishing avatar flaunting a pink ‘gharara’ with traditional jewellery adorning the newly-wed bride. It was mainly the Manish Malhotra ensemble that captured the maximum attention. With intricate thread work in gold on its border, the elegant ‘lehnga’ was paired with a sleeveless ornate ‘choli’, which left her midriff bare. The heavy choker studded with emeralds and diamonds was a statement piece in itself. Apart from Sharmila’s ‘gharara’ which was restored by designer Ritu Kumar, all her wedding dresses were designed by Manish Malhotra. This wedding was undeniably an event of immense curiosity all over the nation, with the focus sticking to what the couple wore for the different days! Now it remains to be seen how many women would like to get inspired by Kareena’s bridal couture! We wouldn’t be surprised if the numbers are sky-high!
