The Big Fat Ambani Wedding: Lehenga Inspiration for Wedding Season


Luxurious, avant-garde, larger than king-size, Indian weddings are a huge celebration of familia reunion, extravagant feast and exotic setup. Expect all things grand and OTT when the royal name like Ambani is involved in such gregarious events. The glitterati flock together to sensationalize the soiree and glorify cascading silhouettes with such an effortless charm. Mukesh Ambani’s son Akash Ambani's big fat engagement ceremony recently hooked the country as he said "YES" to his high school sweetheart and the entire world was glued to the paparazzi struck screens. We were all eyes at the gorgeous celebrities raving in shimmery lehengas and exotic jewelry that struck our jaws wide open. Here are some of our favorite looks from the royal wedding saga:

Lavender Magic

The ABCD 2 fame actress Shraddha Kapoor has taken the cinema world by glee with her striking appearances and bold performances. However, this super adorable young lady always puts up a glamourous yet feminine chic style at gala events and ceremonial occasions. At Ambani’s wedding, she was all about that lace and lavender as she put forth a stunning look in the designer couture handcrafted with delicate embroideries and ecstatic lacework. Her soft and subtle airbrush makeup totally complemented the fairytale look while the smokey eyes balanced the OTT and let her unleash the diva within.

 

Behold Gold

Kiara Advani who made her debut with Fugly and rose to fame with Dhoni starring opposite Sushant Singh, this Delhi girl definitely knows the tricks of the glam world trade. She played smartly with scintillating cuts and crafts on her elaborately crafted gold brocade lehenga choli. The raw visually appealing ensemble totally stole the limelight and Advani did a complete justice to her avant-garde look with side swept soft curls and dramatic makeup. The intricately handcrafted lehenga with stark cuts in the blouse and halter neck style certainly exudes an old-school glam.

 

Frills and Shims

When it’s the flamboyant Shweta Bachchan with her gorgeous daughter Navya, the bombastic pair cannot go wrong for sure. Shweta’s pristine look coupled with her everlasting natural charm adorning pious white frills and flare patterned saree draped with a glamorous sequinned shimmer blouse is indeed a spectacular accouterment. While her daughter gracefully carried the shimmy-shammy look in a designer drape saree and kept it au naturale except for the plum lips and kohl-rimmed eyes topped with a statement mangtika and slick back hair. These women are totally giving us the major bridal trends this season. 

 

Pastels and Mirrors

Disha Patani strikes an hourglass figurine in a contemporary pastel-hued mirror embedded lehenga choli that beautifully accentuates her curves and lets her aglow in the papz. The plunging neckline accompanied with her steal-worthy décolletage and envious slender legs, Disha is indeed a wholesome diva model for all the young girls. Of course, the mirrors lend a subtle elegance and unleash the pure serene vibes.

 

Sigh in Gold Highs

 Alia Bhatt steals the spotlight in her extravagant gold shimmer lehenga choli ensemble that is worth every candy drop. We love how effortlessly she carries the look in élan and glam wearing the haute couture designed with finesse. The seamless couture layered with a sheath sequinned laden dupatta emanates dreamy vibes.

 

Much-In-Love Couple

The starry couple was yet another striking edge to the entire grand extravaganza where the celebrities, socialites, and crème de la crème folks arrived. They were caught stealing glances and sharing a hearty laugh with the divine guests, hand in hand, they coordinated their outfits and stoke our hearts like a mushy banana cake. Jr. Ambani chose Pantone color of the year-Ultra Violet as he cut a fine picture with a debonair violet bandhgala handcrafted with intricate designs and finished off with statement floral real diamond cut button downs. Belle looked pretty as a portrait in an authentic Indian designer couture as she slipped in a traditional rose blush lehenga choli embellished with silver art work.  We love how the couple kept it surreal and subtle and popped up an unreal evening bash.

 

Family in Florals

The much-coveted fashionista Ms. Nita Ambani with her lovely daughter Isha snapped a gorgeous pose in coordinated florals. The family devoured this brilliant ongoing trend and immersed in pastels to celebrate the spring of love and romance in their light pastel shades of eternal charm. We love how ethereally stunning this mother-daughter duo looks in mint floral embroidered lehenga choli with elaborate layers of diamond jewelry and statement hairstyle. Just a perfect look for the beach weddings!
