All you need to know about Anushka Sharma, Virat Kohli attire at Delhi wedding reception
New Delhi : Famous designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee designed Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli's attire for their post-wedding reception held at New Delhi on Friday.
Anushka was resplendent in a vermilion Benarasi sari with heavy zari and traditional jewellery, while Virat was dressed in a dapper black sherwani.
Sabyasachi on Anushka Sharma's attire:
"I don’t think Indian brides feel complete without wearing the colour red in one of their functions. Anushka decided to wear red on her reception. And much to my absolute delight, it would be a red Benarasi sari, from the by-lanes of Peeli Kothi in Benaras. I was particularly excited about this look because I have seen an entire generation of Bengali women getting married in red Benarasi saris. The red bindi, the sindoor and the mogras in her hair just made the look more potent and powerful. She chose to wear a heritage uncut diamond choker and jhumkas from the Sabyasachi Bridal Jewellery collection. Bollywood can play a major role in spreading awareness about Indian textiles and handlooms. And I must say the occasion couldn’t be better. I know copies of this sari will flood the entire country in the next few months to come, which also means that a million weaver’s children will be back at school. All I can say is thank you Anushka!"
Sabyasachi on Virat Kohli's attire:
"Virat chose to complement his new bride in a very subtle and elegant manner. He wore a black textured silk signature bandhgala with the house buttons in 18k gold and a white silk kurta with hand-woven brocade churidaar. He teamed it with mojris from the Sabyasachi accessories line and a hand-embroidered antique Pashmina shawl from our ‘Kashmir Revival’ project."
Sabtyasachi had also designed their dresses for the wedding that was held in Italy earlier this month.
Now, the couple will throw a second post-wedding reception in Mumbai on December 26.
Virat married his Bollywood actress girlfriend Anushka on December 11 in Italy. The news of their marriage had taken most of the cricketing world by surprise. It was a close-knit ceremony attended by close family and friends only.
