The big entertainment news that’s flashing across channels and online publications is Sonam Kapoor-Anand Ahuja’s wedding, slated for May 8. Everyone wants to be the first to catch the headline ‘This is the designer Sonam Kapoor will wear to her wedding’. After Sabyasachi’s lehenga worn by Anushka Sharma, the Bengali designer has become a fave for celebrity clientele. But we all know Sonam has always been biased to Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla and Anamika Khanna. Now only time (and inside sources) will tell us the designer she’ll opt for on her big day. In fact, thanks to her past ethnic outfits there’s no one better than Sonam Kapoor to trump her own looks. Which is why, we’ve curated a rundown of ethnic outfits that upped this bride-to-be’s Indianwear game. Check it out!
Glitz & Glamour
For Diwali 2017, Sonam Kapoor chose a custom-made Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla sari. She teamed it up with a ruffled, high-collar an cold shoulder blouse with sequin and pearl detailing. Love that she kept the accessories simple (the maang tikka stands out) given this glitzy ensemble.
For many, this may seem an OTT look, but Sonam wears it well. This traditional Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla South Indian silk sari with resham and zardozi embroidery and temple jewellery is well-balanced thanks to her minimal makeup.
That Vintage Vibe
Sonam elevates the definition of summer wedding style with this Sabyasachi floral lehenga. We love the vintage vibe imparted because of the layered pearl neckpiece and chic side-swept bun.
We are not sure what Sonam will choose for her upcoming festivities. But if it’s a lehenga, we’re wondering how she’ll ever ace this stunning outfit. Wearing a Rohit Bal piece in pink and gold, Sonam sported traditional jewellery — a matha patti from Amrapali and bangles by Ghana Singh. The hair and makeup was on point too. No questioning the fact that she looked amazing.
Royal In Green
Looking for a contemporary yet regal look? Sonam’s Anamika Khanna lehenga, with its heavily-embroidered skirt and button-down and full sleeve cropped blouse, is a perfect amalgation of classic-meets-modern. The addition of the kundan neckpiece is just right.
Did someone tell you that you cannot experiment while donning a sari? Check out how effortlessly Sonam Kapoor works the double pallu sari by Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla, one that she’s worn with an applique net blouse. We love the addition of the gajra on her hair and those elaborate Amrapali earrings.
By now, you know Sonam Kapoor is almost always opting for Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla (if not Anamika Khanna) for her ethnic outings. Here. she’s sported a beautifully-embellished lehenga by the designer duo. She accessorised this outfit with a pair of classic jhumkas, a polti as a carryall, and golden juttis. LOVE!
This is a talked-about outfit by Sonam Kapoor, in which she walked the Cannes red carpet. Wearing a dhoti sari along with a sheer capelet as a layer over her blouse, Sonam’s look was sleek and stylish. Contemporary drapes never looked better.
Cheery Hues Intact
Cheery yellow is a summer colour we can’t get enough of. Sonam’s yellow suit by Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla is perfect for Indian festivities. The addition of gajra and jhumkas elevates the look of this embroidered piece.
