Actress Sonam Kapoor opted for a red bridal lehenga during her marriage with businessman Anand Ahuja, thereby breaking the perception that the colour has lost its glory from the Indian wedding scene. Ace designer Manish Malhotra says shades of red and maroon can never go out of style.

“The choice of a wedding outfit depends on several factors — the bride’s personality, aesthetic, season, and ambience. For a traditional wedding, shades of red and maroon will never go out of style,” Manish told IANS over an e-mail.


He, however, feels that for a chilled out beach wedding, brides can opt for pastel hues such as baby pink, beige, ivory and lavender.

“I always advise brides to choose a silhouette and colour scheme that is both opulent, and locked in tradition at the same time,” said Malhotra.

He said “Sonam looked nothing but exquisite at all her events.”

“I think she effortlessly pulls off every outfit with grace and elegance. I loved all her avatars as a fun, modern bride, as she also exudes an inspiring confidence with Indian wear, while preserving the beautiful heritage of Indian fashion,” he said.

Many celebrities opted for the designer’s outfits at Sonam and Anand’s pre-wedding, wedding and reception celebrations. He finds immense pleasure to see his designs on the people who inspire him with their individual style.

“I’ve enjoyed working with style icons such as Kareena Kapoor Khan, Karishma Kapoor, Katrina Kaif, Jacqueline Fernandez, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Kajol, Karan Johar, Ranbir Kapoor and Varun Dhawan. Needless to say, they all looked stunning at Sonam’s wedding celebrations,” he said.

It’s not just established names, but even a young actor like Janhvi Kapoor was seen opting for his outfit.

Malhotra feels that working with young actors and the next generation always infuses him with a new energy.

“I find that they are naturally poised at this age, and definitely aware about their sartorial choices and what looks good on them – be it Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Janhvi and Khushi Kapoor and Isabelle Kaif,” he said. (Bollywood Country)

Designer Payal Singhal launched her first ever shop in New Delhi at Aza, Ambawatta One, Mehrauli. At this new location, she also unveiled "Suroor" her Winter Festive' 2021 collection for Women that stays true to the brand's DNA of deconstructing and reimagining traditional Indian silhouettes for the modern aesthete.

The collection is replete with hybrid lehenga with cut-outs, sharara sets, kaftan kurtas and anarkalis; all enhanced with intricate mukaish, zardozi, gota, nakshi, pitta and mirror work. Statement yokes, the latest take on the House's signature back-tie choli, and a new burst of #PSPrints are also an integral part of the collection. For the first time, Payal has worked with bandhanis developed in Jaipur, but with her inimitable twist - using the technique on tussar instead of silks. (IANS/ MBI)
