Music, dance, a silent disco and some fabulous fashion moments set the tone for this glamorous bash. Have a look ahead as we spotted some red carpet-worthy moments and took a fun Bollywood-cocktail wardrobe survey.
The soirée started off with really stylish family members and friends walking into what was about to be a night they would never forget — Hansika revelled in the limelight with an effortlessly elegant gown that dazzled with just right amount of gold and glitter, her beau Gaurav stood dapper as ever in his navy blue suit. The evening was filled with dance performances, the bride danced among friends sporting a pair of sunglasses for a touch of swag, a surprise mannequin challenge put all the guests in fun spirits and the night wrapped up with a silent party where all the guests wore headphones that helped them dance to their own tunes.
Shruti Narayan, Friend and Model
(On her outfit)“I was bored of wearing a regular saree and suit, so I felt the need to play with different elements and bring them together – I picked up this flowy skirt from Bangkok, plus I had this heavy phulkari duppatta, so I topped it off with this blouse I bought for it’s fun back pattern.”
On Hansika’s outfit: “I love what she’s wearing! The champagne gold is doing absolute justice to her skin tone and it just looks so classy.”
Shikha Kumar, Gaurav’s Sister
(On her outfit) “I wanted to wear a lehenga because it’s really traditional and nobody wears that anymore, also since it was a black tie affair I wanted it to be a little contemporary so I opted for an off-shoulder crop top”
On Hansika’s outfit: “It’s amazing – gold can be such a tricky colour to pull off since it’s so jazzy, but with her outfit, the cut and the shimmer just balances everything out.”
Natasha, Hansika’s cousin
(On her outfit) “It really matches my style, I usually like to just pick up something I like and this was it, its elegant and is really apt for a cocktail function.”
(On her outfit)“I like things that are very contemporary yet Indian – so this outfit really fits the bill.”
On Hansika’s outfit: “She’s looking gorgeous! Usually the case with most brides is that the outfit usually wears them, but with Hansika’s choice of gown for tonight, she’s wearing the dress and it’s not the other way round, she’s owning it!”
Bollywood WODROB Match Game
