Bollywood’s BEST DRESSED Bride: Deepika Padukone, Priyanka Chopra, Sonam Kapoor Or Anushka Sharma?
We have seen them as brides on-screen, a lot of times, but it’s always different and special when the same translates in the real life. Bollywood has witnessed 4 big weddings between Dec 2017 to Dec 2018- Anushka Sharma-Virat Kohli, Sonam Kapoor-Anand Ahuja, Deepika Padukone- Ranveer Singh and Priyanka Chopra-Nick Jonas.

Now when it’s a wedding, be it filmy or non-filmy, a bride’s outfit is the most-anticipated thing. Everyone wants to know what she is wearing on her special day. Same was the case with our 4 brides- Anushka, Sonam, Deepika and Priyanka. Now that we have seen who donned what on her d-day, let’s find out who turned out to be the prettiest of the pretty lot. Starting from the Mehendi functions to their Reception, here’s what we felt about their looks.

MEHENDI

1.    ANUSHKA SHARMA

Anushka Sharma wanted to play with colours on her Mehendi ceremony as she donned a boho look. The actress’s lehenga had a mix of fuchsia pink and Indian orange with hand-embroidered gota and marori which she matched with a bright floral crop top. For accessories she wore a stunning pair of earrings from the Sabyasachi Heritage Jewelry collection- jhumkas crafted in 22k gold with Iranian turquoise, tourmalines, uncut diamonds and Japanese cultured pearls. With so much of colour play, Anushka toned down her look with simple straight hair-do.

2.    SONAM KAPOOR

Unlike Anushka, Sonam went with the colour of serenity- white. Mrs Ahuja opted for an Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla outfit in white and gold. The cut of her choli was sexy and the hair-do stood out in her entire look. Sonam had braided her hair and decorated with gajra. She wore a heavy kundan choker, jumkis and maang tikka. The look was very Indian and heavy.

3.    DEEPIKA PADUKONE:

Deepika Padukone followed a very royal theme for her Mehendi ceremony. Her outfit, though I felt was a bit overdone, was a typical Sabyasachi which made the actress look no less than a queen. Intricate work, heavy borders, lots of fabric play.  The jewellery was again on the heavy side with choker and layered necklaces.

4. PRIYANKA CHOPRA:

Priyanka also followed Anushka’s footsteps and wore a mutli-coloured outfit for her Mehendi ceremony. Hers was a traditional Rajasthani lehenga choli by Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla and the actress completed her look with maang tikka, heavy layered neck pieces and floral decoration in her braided hair-do. While I felt PeeCee could have done better with jewellery and the work on her lehenga, I give her full points for experimenting with loud colours.

VERDICT: Anushka Sharma slayed it here hands down. The idea of going boho and easy on Mehendi was a winner all the way. Very colourful and different- certain occasions don’t need heavy dressing- sometimes simplicity and effortless is all that is required.  



WEDDING 




1.    ANUSHKA SHARMA:

 Anushka Sharma literally gave us a glimpse of how an out of the world bride looks like. For her D-day, Mrs Kohli chose a Sabyasachi pale pink lehenga with Renaissance embroidery in vintage English colours embellished with silver-gold metal thread, pearls and beads. Her bridal jewellery was again from the Sabyasachi Heritage collection- handcrafted with syndicate uncut diamonds, pale pink spinel and baroque Japanese cultured pearls; Anushka just stunned us with her bridal avatar.

2.    SONAM KAPOOR:

Sonam opted for a typical bridal red as she wore a heavy dual duppata lehenga by Anuradha Vakil. Frankly, I was a bit taken aback by her wedding outfit as we all expect a lot of Sonam- her fashion sense has been acclaimed a number of times. So, for her to opt for a cliché design and colour was a bit of a disappointment. The bride of course looked pretty with her infectious smile and aura, but I wish she gave us more.

3.    DEEPIKA PADUKONE:

Mrs Bhavnani celebrated her wedding for two days. First, she had a Konkani wedding and wore a red and gold kanjivaram saree by Angadi Galleria, Bengaluru. Heavy choker by Sabyasachi, typical maatha-patti, nath and mogras completed her South Indian look. For the second day-Sindhi wedding- Deepika wore a deep red lehenga with bandh gala choli- again a Sabyasachi outfit. The USP of her look was the gold embroidered dupatta which had shlok written around the border. Again heavy jewellery complimenting her royal look.

  4. PRIYANKA CHOPRA:

Like Deepika, Priyanka too opted for two weddings- one following Christian rituals and other following Hindu traditions. To talk about her Christian bridal look, Priyanka wore a Ralph Lauren. Interestingly, Priyanka is the 4th bride Ralph has ever made a wedding gown for. The other 3 were his family members. The gown was embellished with pearlescent sequins, overlaid with a hand-embroidered, high-neck coat with scalloped sleeves and satin-covered buttons.

For her Hindu wedding, the bride opted for a bright red lehnga with French embroidery by Sabyasachi. The jewellery was again a bit of disappointment, although it was from Sabya’s heritage jewellery collection (same as Anushka’s) but this one didn’t really impress me much. I would have liked to see a lot of depth in her bridal lehenga too, felt it was a bit understated for someone like PeeCee.

VERDICT: For me, Anushka walked away with the cake by a minuscule margin against Deepika. While all three looked beautiful, there was something serene about Anushka’s bridal look which swept us off our feet. It’s quite possible that we have never seen the actress so heavily dressed off-camera, as compared to Deepika and Sonam, that the image is very strong in our minds.  


RECEPTION

Reception



1.    ANUSHKA SHARMA

Anushka Sharma took a break from lehengas during her Delhi reception. Although the Mumbai one, again saw the actress don a lehenga choli. Talking about the Delhi one, Anushka wore a heavy Benarsi saree. As Sabyasachi writes, “the red bindi, the sindoor and the mogras in her hair just made the look more potent and powerful”. For her accessories, Anushka chose to wear heritage uncut diamond choker and jhumkas from the Sabyasachi Bridal Jewelry collection. For her Mumbai reception, she wore a gold shimmery lehenga-choli with a signature Sabyasachi waist belt and diamond choker.

2.    SONAM KAPOOR:

Sonam went a little off-track on her reception day. According to me, she went way too casual and off-bridal mode for the party. Mrs Ahuja wore a light colored, grey and off white outfit, and a chevron printed skirt by Anamika Khanna. Layered neck pieces and hair left loose and straight, Sonam looked nice but not like a newlywed bride.

3.    DEEPIKA PADUKONE:

Deepika Padukone’s reception, err receptions were the talk of the town. Deepika’s first wedding reception, which took place in Bengaluru witnessed the actress draped in a typical gold kanjivaram saree- again by Angadia Galleria. Hair pulled in a neat bun with sindoor and mogra beautifully decorated around her bun, Deepika completed the look with a beautiful statement choker. That was the most brilliant part of her look which stood out. A cluster of rare Zambian emeralds and brilliant-cut diamonds come together in a poetic-geometric precision- the choker set was par excellence.

Second reception was in Mumbai and the actress yet again opted for white and gold combination. This one was by Abu Jani- Sandeep Khosla in ivory where Deepika wore an elaborate saree with a heavy and dramatic veil over her head. The ears, though I pity them by now, were embellished with heavy danglers.  I would call this look a bit average.

And the last reception, which was hosted for the Bollywood fraternity, saw the diva raise mercury levels and how in a red hot Zuhair Murad gown. She finally let those tresses loose, smoky eyes and nude lips, Deepika killed it here. Later for the party, the actress detached the train of the gown and changed into white sneakers too- still looking as hot as she was before.

4. PRIYANKA CHOPRA:

Priyanka hosted a reception in Delhi, last evening, which was also attended by PM Narendra Modi. The actress dressed in a shimmery white Shane & Falguni Peacock lehenga choli. Uncut diamonds were her choice for the nite and she flaunted a whole lot of it. PeeCee decorated a few white roses in her bun.

VERDICT: Deepika Padukone stole the limelight at her receptions. As compared to Sonam, Anushka and Priyanka, Deepika’s reception looks win the race. Variety, playing with make-up and jewellery, in all 3 – she knew how to keep the fashion police all curious before each of her functions.

And now, it's time to find out who won the title of the Best Dressed Bollywood Bride among the 4 divas. A very very tough competition between Deepika and Anushka. But if it's about giving one of them the title, then Deepika Padukone will win it by just a small margin as she managed to keep the gorgeousness level soaring all the time, throughout all the functions. And boy, being colour-coordinated, and mind you, head to toe with your hubby and that too so well, each time you make an appearance, is no cake walk. A lot of effort and still effortless, Deepika is hands down our Best Dressed Bollywood Bride between the 4.
