New Delhi: Donning a traditional red Benarasi saree, newly-wed Anushka Sharma looked resplendent at her wedding reception in Delhi on Thursday.
The Bollywood star, who married Indian skipper Virat Kohli on December 11, wore a Sabyasachi ensemble for the grand ceremony and accompanied the look with red bindi, sindoor and mogras.
About her saree, the designer revealed in his Instagram post that the 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil' star chose to wear a red Benarasi saree from the by-lanes of Peeli Kohti in Benaras. She summed it all with uncut diamond choker and jhumkas from the designer's jewellery collection.
Talking about Kohli's attire, Sabyasachi stated that he wore a black textured silk signature bandhgala with the house buttons in 18k gold and a white silk kurta with hand-woven brocade churidaar.
I don’t think Indian brides feel complete without wearing the colour red in one of their functions. Anushka decided to wear red on her reception. And much to my absolute delight, it would be a red Benarasi saree. From the by-lanes of Peeli Kothi in Benaras. I was particularly excited about this look because I have seen an entire generation of Bengali women getting married in red Benarasi sarees. The red bindi, the sindoor and the mogras in her hair just made the look more potent and powerful. She chose to wear heritage uncut diamond choker and jhumkas from the Sabyasachi Bridal Jewelry collection. Bollywood can play a major role in spreading awareness about Indian textiles and handlooms. And I must say the occasion couldn’t be better. I know copies of this saree will flood the entire country in the next few months to come, which also means that a million weaver’s children will be back at school. All I can say is thank you Anushka! Virat chose to complement his new bride in a very subtle and elegant manner. He wore a black textured silk signature bandhgala with the house buttons in 18k gold and a white silk kurta with hand-woven brocade churidaar. He teamed it with mojris from the Sabyasachi accessories line and a hand-embroidered antique Pashmina shawl from our ‘Kashmir Revival’ project. @anushkasharma @virat.kohli @bridesofsabyasachi @groomsofsabyasachi @tajdiplomaticenclave For all jewellery related queries, kindly contact firstname.lastname@example.org #Sabyasachi #TheWorldOfSabyasachi #SabyasachiJewelry #AnushkaSharmaViratKohliReception #Virushka #AnushkaSharma #ViratKohli
