After a cosy yet star-studded affair that was Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja's 'ghar wali mehendi', we have been holding our breath for tonight. What is tonight, may you ask? Tonight is #SoNand's official mehendi night.
And if last night's to-die-for shaadi outfits are any hint, you must have thought tonight would take it to the next level. You're not wrong. #SonamKiShaadi is hitting the mark when it comes to fashion moments, and we're not surprised! The Bollywood bride, Sonam Kapoor, looks like an angel that just fell from the heavens... a very fashionable angel in an exquisite ivory lehenga by her favourite designer duo Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla.
Doesn't she just glow? Now, since the beautiful wedding invite mentioned a 'Shades of white' dress code for all the guests, most of the outfits we spotted adhere to it. From her besties Swara Bhaskar and Pernia Qureshi to sister Janhvi Kapoor, the #ladkiwale stuck to the all-white colour theme...
... but not everyone did! Yes, there were a few deviants who barely stuck to the 'shades of white' colour code (we're not completely mad at that) and we're about to reveal who these stars are:

The stunner wore a minuscule strapped skin tight white kurti with shararas and a dupatta designed by designer duo Sukriti & Akriti. While the kurti was white, the rest was covered in multi-coloured floral embroidery. Don't miss the bright orange quilted bag Miss Shetty Kundra has on her arm.
Sonam's bestie and Bollywood starlet Jacqueline Fernandez arrived early to join the mehendi festivities. However, she broke the dress code, somewhat. The actress looked drop dead gorgeous in an Anamika Khanna lehenga with traditional jhumkis to go with it. As you can see, the lehenga was not white, but a subtle shade of grey with multi-coloured floral embroidery on the choli. Sonam didn't seem upset, so all's well!
The king of Bollywood cinema and a very close friend of the Kapoors, filmmaker Karan Johar arrived at Sonam and Anand's mehendi venue in a printed get-up. He wore a rose print bandhgala kurta with white (there!) churidaars and a metallic red, green and blue stole. Even though he broke a rule, we're pretty chuffed. After all, it's not K.Jo if it's not 'extra'.
Sonam Kapoor's long-time BFF and fashion designer, Masaba Gupta balanced her ivory and gold lehenga with her burning hot pink choli. The piece is a House of Masaba original, the go-to for quirky shades and prints across the industry. We'd break the rules too if we had our hands on that!
Bollywood hottie Katrina Kaif arrived a bit late to the scene with debutante sis Isabelle. While Kat was sincere in ivory and white, Isa strayed from the colour code on the invite. The actress chose an electric blue cropped blouse to wear with a snow-white embellished lehenga. She did look lovely and that's what matters, doesn't it?
The night is still young, and there are many a look to spot yet. We've got our eyes peeled, you should too! #SonamKiShaadi FTW, amirite?
