Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli tied the knot this Monday in a closely knit event in Italy. Both Anushka and Virat glistened in ensembles and accessories by Sabyasachi Mukherjee on their engagement, mehndi and the wedding day! Today at SHE, we’re breaking down Anushka’s and Virat’s looks from all three days (so far.)
The Wedding – A Pastel Affair!
Outfit: Anushka wore a blush pink lehenga for the wedding day. Keeping in mind the setting, Mukherjee chose a pastel hue in place of a traditional red one for the ceremony. It took 67 karigars, 32 days to hand embroider the lehenga in silk floss, which bore motifs of exotic birds and butterflies. Kohli, who was also dressed by Mukherjee, went classic with an ivory sherwani, a lightly embroidered tussar stole and a pale pink chanderi safa that matched Sharma’s lehenga.
Jewellery: To complement the pale pink lehenga, the bride wore traditional jewellery—a mathapatti, layered necklaces and jhumkas in jadau, pearls and pink spinel.
Makeup: For the makeup she kept it minimal to compliment the rest of her look. Anushka carried off flawless satin finish skin with a pale pink blush and nude lips to complete her look.
Hair: The hero of Sharma’s look wasn’t the lehenga or the jewellery, it was the fresh hydrangeas the star wore in her hair that added the ‘crowning glory’ to the ensemble.
The Mehndi – A Picturesque Affair
Outfit: For her mehndi, Anushka opted for a chic boho look full of bright colours. With hot pink being her favourite colour, she wore a graphic fuchsia pink and orange lehenga with a lot of gota! For the choli she wore a silk sixties pop inspired screen print in contrasting colours. Virat opted for a hot pink waist coat over an all-white pajama kameez.
Jewellery: She accessorised this bright look with a pair of jhumkas crafted in 22 carat gold with Iranian turquoise, tourmalines, uncut diamonds and Japanese cultured pearls.
Makeup: She opted for a no-makeup makeup look with this outfit.
Hair: Sleek straight hair, centre parted – that’s signature Anushka look for you!
The Engagement – A Regal Affair
Outfit: Anushka looked absolutely regal in a plush maroon velvet saari with an intricate floral zardozi border and miniature pearls, while Virat opted for a clean blue tuxedo.
Jewellery: Anushka Sharma chose a classic uncut diamond choker with Japanese pearls and tiny emeralds with matching studs.
Makeup: Anushka opted for dewy flawless skin, smokey kohled eyes, nude lips and small bindi.
Hair: To round off her look, she opted for a neat bun and adored her hair with dark red roses.
