Any guesses on Anushka Sharma's wedding lehenga cost? Well, it costed a whopping Rs. 30 Lakh. The price clearly blew our minds!
In an interview, designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee spoke on curating Anushka Sharma's wedding look. He said, “Anushka was to get married in Florence and her lehenga just had to fit in. So they chose a colour that would blend in with the whimsical Tuscan surrounding rather than stand out. It was blush pink with tropical flora and fauna, hand-embroidered in silk floss. Exotic birds and butterflies were rendered with the finest quality needlecraft. It took 67 karigars, 32 days to complete the ensemble. To complement her lehenga, beautiful jadau jewellery was handcrafted in uncut diamonds, pearls and pale pink spinel.”
Anushka Sharma's Wedding Jewellery
What added more to Anushka Sharma's wedding look was her traditional jewellery from the house of Sabyasachi Mukherjee. She wore a mathapatti, a statement choker, rani haar, and matching jhumkas, all in jadau, pearls, and pink spinel.
Just What Anushka Wanted
In an interview, Anushka Sharma talked about the specific details she wanted about her wedding wear. When she met the ace designer she was specific about two things and her attire was curated exactly the way she wished. She said, “When I met Sabyasachi [Mukherjee] I told him very clearly that for my wedding look I wanted to go with pale pink. I didn’t want to do a traditional red because it was a day wedding. I envisioned pastel colours, flowers. The vibe was such—not too much”.
Red For Reception
While Anushka Sharma ditched the traditional red for her D-day, she took the Indian route for her wedding reception in Mumbai. Anushka Sharma told Sabyasachi Mukherjee that she wants to go with a traditional red Benarasi saree with sindoor and traditional heavy jewellery. Anushka Sharma went for the exact same look with a sleek gajra bun, sindoor, and a lot of heavy jewellery.
Not just Anushka Sharma, her groom, Virat Kohli too trusted Sabyasachi Mukherjee for his wedding wardrobe. All those who follow Anushka Sharma closely know that Sabyasachi is her go-to designer and honestly we love it! Every time she steps out in a creation by the coutourier, she never disappoints the fashion police.
