Sonam Kapoor turns white bride for Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla


Sonam Kapoor turns gorgeous white bride for ace designer-duo Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla. The ‘Neerja’ actress looked ravishing in embroidered lehenga skirt with a ruffled collar and billowy sheer sleeves.

The 32-year-old actress was styled in a contemporary as well traditional manner. With modern lehenga skirt, she is decked with traditional chura which the new brides of the North wear during marriage. With minimal make-up and red and white jewellery, Sonam Kapoor’s bridal look gets a boost.

Sonam Kapoor shared her experience walking the ramp as shwstopper, “I feel great. It’s a beautiful outfit. It has got all moti ka kaam on it and it also has Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla’s famous chikankari work on it. It’s stunning.”

Meanwhile, Sandeep Khosla spoke about Sonam’s flawless styling sense. He said, “She’s the best.. She’s the woman who’s invented the word fashionista in India. She’s responsible for it. And look what an honour, she’s just walked for Ralph and Russo and she’s loved our clothes since she was a kid.”

Sonam happily talks about her favourite rituals and ceremonies in a typical Indian wedding. Sonam says, “The best part has to be the coming together of friends and families under one roof to celebrate. I also love how couples write passages or vows for one another and read them out… I think it’s really meaningful and beautiful. Besides that, I love everything about shringar and mehandi, along with all the games that one plays during different ceremonies.”  

Indian brides usually opt for red and pink colour wedding outfit. When the fashionista was asked if she finds white a little off-beat or maybe controversial, she laughs, “I think white is a great colour, it’s always fantastic. I love all sorts of colours but white represents purity, so I like it even more. And as for controversies, I don’t know if this is controversial, but right now I think anything can be controversial especially in India.”

Ask her about her definition of a ideal bride and she quickly responds, “A happy bride is the best bride. I think someone who’s happy and excited to start her new life is always a quintessential bride.”
