Veere Di Wedding was a special film for more than one reason. It celebrated the spirit of friendship, womanhood and depicted for the first time ever, an unseen camaraderie between the leading ladies who are uninhibited, free-spirited and believe in living life on their own terms.
As expected, the movie went on to create history- becoming the highest grossing Hindi film featuring female actors. It entered the prestigious 100-Crore club in the second week of release and was loved by critics and masses alike.
Apart from these, the sartorial choices of the four leading ladies- Kareena Kapoor Khan, Sonam Kapoor, Swara Bhasker and Shikha Talsania grabbed numerous eyeballs and became the talk of the town. A special mention in this regard should be given to Kareena’s (who plays Kalindi Puri in the film) bridal outfit which has been winning hearts all over for its unique styling, verve and a beautiful fusion of Indo-western aesthetics. A lemon yellow mermaid-style ghaghra and choli, with a western twist accompanied by lace detailing, floral motifs and delicate pearl jewellery made the actor look cherubic and ethereal.
With the wedding season just a few months away, Kareena’s bridal outfit has definitely set wedding fashion goals for many ‘to-be brides’ who desire to look as beautiful and desirable as the Bollywood diva.
For the wedding scene in the film, Kareena Kapoor Khan wore a vintage Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla lehenga paired with a customised blouse and a custom made dainty pearl and diamond necklace and haathphool. The wedding jewellery was procured from Birdhichand Ghanshyamdas, Eina Ahluwalia and Gehna Jewellers. Her hair was styled in a messy low bun with stunning floral hair accessories. Opting for glowing skin and rosy cheeks to offset the pastel ensemble, Kareena sported slightly smoky eyes and mauve lips.
The magnificient embellished mermaid style lehenga, coupled with the bohemian look is rare, exotic and mesmerises everyone. The lehenga was paired with an ultra-glam, well-fitted choli, coupled with an embellished sweetheart neckline and short off-the-shoulder sleeves with pearl tassel details that clearly highlighted her flawless shoulders. It was also embellished with silver sequins and beads. The outfit was further teamed with a bright yellow dupatta, attached to an equally beautiful baby’s wreath.
The bridal outfit is actually a vintage garment from ace designer duo Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla who have styled all the four leading ladies in the film. Apparently, it was created by the duo 25 years ago and was lying in a trunk since then, before being spotted by producer Rhea Kapoor, while she was researching on the outfits to be worn in the film. Rhea loved the outfit in the first instance and requested Abu-Sandeep to reinvent it for the film. The blouse and the lehenga were kept pretty much the same. They were only altered to Kareena’s size.
The jaw-dropping outfit ticks all the right boxes for being a classic wedding outfit. It is luxe, feminine and super-flattering and can make any bride feel like a princess. No doubt, this bridal outfit will inspire bridal fashions and go down in history as one of the most beautiful wedding outfit ever worn in any Hindi film.
