Known to be one of the most loved small screen celebrities, Gauhar Khan became a household name post her Bigg Boss 7. She began her career in the entertainment industry in 2009 by appearing in Yash Raj Films' Rocket Singh: Salesman of the Year. After that, she signed a few more flicks, such as Game, Ishaqzaade, Fever, Badrinath Ki Dulhania and Begum Jaan.
While she garners appreciation for being extremely beautiful and for good acting, Gauhar is best known for her exemplary dancing skills. As she is soon to tie the knot with fiancé, Zaid Darbar, who is a social media influencer, we had a look at some of her stunning ethnic couture. We found a couple of lehenga choli pieces that we absolutely love and think can be sported by anyone for a minimalistic event.
Black Banarasi Lehenga
Banarasi silk fabric is very popular in India, for it being luxurious and of great quality. Its saree is worn by women of various Indian states. When it comes to a wedding or some special occasions, Indian women have been wearing banarsi silk sarees and lehengas for years. This black piece is simply classy as it has the most intricate work using red and gold thread. The jali coati and blouse is working as a wow-factor with a skirt that seems so gorgeous!
Multi-Shade Cotton Blue Lehenga
This is a simple lehenga with multiple shades of blue and a punch of red. This is something one can don during those day-time events and even to some brunch party with your friends. Made using a comfortable cotton cloth, this is ideal for summers, but can also be worn during slightly colder weather.
Shimmery Grey Lehenga
We ladies love bling and shimmer, especially when it comes to oozing oomph in a wedding ceremony. When you have to shine, nothing is best than wearing a gorgeous dress with sequins. Gauhar’s dress seems absolutely perfect if you are hunting for an outfit for your best friend’s or cousin’s wedding.
Gold Embroidered Lehenga
In India, besides red, and yellow gold is also considered an auspicious colour. That’s why it was custom until a very long time to wear gold ornaments on the wedding day. We all love a rich and an elegant gold thread work, also known as zari work on ethnic dresses. This white and black lehenga set is royal and great for pre-wedding ceremonies!
You don’t like bling, but still looking for an ensemble that can make you stand out? Perhaps this golden lehenga is what you are looking for. It has the most subtle work, paired with a hint of pink. Its colour is enough to grab the eyeballs and give you that show stopper’s feel!
Not everyone is into traditional prints and heavy embroidery. Some are a fan of some unique aplic work and playing around with various shades and patterns. If you are what we just defined, you are likely to fall in love with Gauhar Khan’s gorgeous mix and match lehenga. Nowadays couture like these are making headlines for being quirky (quirky saree designs) and smart!
Ajrakh Print Lehenga
India is the land of various art forms; fabric painting or printing is one among them. Ajrakh print is a unique block print mostly seen in Sindh, Pakistan; Kutch, Gujarat (beaches in Gujarat); and Barmer, Rajasthan in India. Gauhar’s lehenga has subtle mirror work and ajrakh print, together they are exuding regal vibes.
